    NRA's look at the states again

    Today's info - States with updates this issue: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ARIZONA
    The Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) is seeking public comment
    on the draft "Wildlife 2012" plan, which, according to AZGFD, is a
    "strategic plan that will guide how the agency manages wildlife, outdoor
    recreational opportunities, and its own operations for the next six
    years." Because the AZGFD determines issues important to the pro-gun
    community in Arizona (such as shooting ranges, access to public lands,
    and overall hunting policies), it is extremely important that NRA
    members attend these informational meetings. The meeting dates are as
    follows (all meetings will be held from 6-9:00 p.m.): Yuma, Wednesday,
    September 6, Arizona Game and Fish Department/Regional Office, 9140 E.
    28th Street; Kingman, Monday, September 11, Arizona Game and Fish
    Department/Regional Office, 5325 N. Stockton Hill Road; Flagstaff,
    Tuesday, September 12, Arizona Game and Fish Department/Regional Office:
    3500 S. Lake Mary Road; Mesa, Thursday, September 14, Arizona Game and
    Fish Department/Regional Office: 7200 E. University Drive; Pinetop,
    Friday, September 15, Arizona Game and Fish Department/Regional Office:
    2878 E. White Mountain Blvd.; and Tucson, Monday, September 18, Arizona
    Game and Fish Department/Regional Office: 555 N. Greasewood Road. For a
    copy of the "Wildlife 2012" plan, please visit www.azgfd.gov.

    CALIFORNIA
    AB2714, sponsored by Assembly Member Alberto Torrico (D-20), is
    currently on the Senate floor. This legislation would require that no
    ammunition (or reloaded ammunition) may be sold in a retail transaction
    unless the purchaser personally presents evidence of his or her identity
    and age, as specified, to the seller of the ammunition. Additionally,
    it would severely undermine California's state preemption law. AB352,
    sponsored by Assembly Member Paul Koretz (D-42), would require that
    after a certain date, the make, model, and serial number be microstamped
    onto the interior surface or internal working parts of all handguns in
    such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted onto the cartridge
    case upon firing. Handguns that do not include their identifying
    information would be defined as "unsafe," and their manufacture, sale,
    and transfer would be a crime. AB352 passed in the Senate by two votes
    and now moves before the Assembly for a final vote. Please contact your
    State Legislators today and urge them to oppose AB2714 and AB352 by
    visiting www.calnra.com/legs/asm.shtml, and
    www.calnra.com/legs/sen.shtml.

    CONNECTICUT
    Due to strong opposition from local residents and a lack of support from
    town council members, the proposal to severely restrict the discharge of
    a firearm within the Town of Montville has been dropped. This comes on
    the heels of last week's town council meeting, where introduction of the
    measure was postponed due to the overwhelming number of NRA members who
    showed up to voice their concerns. Although this latest development is
    certainly good news, we can't consider this fight over. In fact, the
    Norwich Bulletin doesn't even think gun owners and sportsmen have the
    right to be heard. Check out today's editorial at
    http://www.norwichbulletin.com/apps/...7/1014/OPINION.
    We will be sure to inform you of any further developments.

    FLORIDA
    The 2006 Primary elections are being held Tuesday, September 5! For

    MARYLAND
    A Friends of NRA dinner and fundraiser will be held at the Holiday Inn
    in Cumberland, on Wednesday September 20, beginning at 6:00 p.m. The
    committee promises an entertaining evening with good food, great prizes,
    and a lively auction. Some of the great items featured for auction
    include the "2006 Weatherby .270 Gun of the Year," the "Case Buffalo
    Knife of the Year," and the "2006 Eagle Print of the Year," by Cole
    Johnson. 100% of the money raised at the dinner will be used to fund
    programs such as Women's and Youth safety and educational initiatives at
    the national and local level, with 50% of funds staying in the state of
    Maryland. For tickets or further information, please call chairman,
    Donald Schneider at (304) 738-2055.

    MICHIGAN
    The Humane Society of the United States has placed a dove-hunting ban,
    Proposition 3, on the November ballot in Michigan. You can help defend
    Michigan's hunting heritage by attending the Citizens for Wildlife
    Conservation Grass Roots Rally on Tuesday, August 29, from 7:30 - 9:30
    p.m., at the Kellog Christian Reformed Sportsperson's Club, 610 52nd
    Street, Kentwood, MI 49548. The Citizens for Wildlife Conservation will
    inform attendees about the proposed ban and what sportsmen can do to
    help protect the rights of Michigan's hunters. For more information
    about the rally, please contact: Steve Bartz, (616) 291-5783,
    sgbartz@sbcglobal.net; Pat Klott, (616) 534-8194,
    trapmodel12@hotmail.com; Paul Zeman, (616) 891-0613, zemanp@msn.com; or
    Lee Zeidler, (616) 538-0510, info@cwcmi.org. Please keep checking your
    email and www.NRAILA.org for future updates on this important hunting
    issue.

    In addition, the "2nd Annual Friends of the NRA Michigan Celebrity
    Shoot" will be held on Saturday, September 9! Please come join us as we
    get warmed up for hunting season by shooting with local celebrities, or
    just come for dinner. Also enjoy our many gun raffles and limited
    edition NRA commemorative items in our live and silent auctions! The
    "NRA Michigan Celebrity Shoot" is being held September 9, at the Detroit
    Gun Club (DGC), in Commerce Township. This is a 100-target shotgun fun
    shoot that includes 50 targets of Sporting Clays, 25 targets of Skeet,
    and 25 targets of Trap. All targets, shells, lunch, and steak dinner is
    included! Everyone will also receive a 4"x 6" squad photo.

    Some of the celebrities that attended last year were: former Detroit
    Tiger pitcher and World Series record holder, Mickey Lolitch; former
    Detroit Red Wing, Dennis Hextall; State Senator Nancy Cassis (R-15); and
    Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard (currently running for U.S.
    Senate against anti-gun Debbie Stabenow); among many others. This is a
    great time to gather and shoot with pro-NRA celebrities, while also
    raising money to protect and promote the shooting sports for future
    generations! Money raised at Friends of the NRA events go toward
    educational programs, with 50% of the money staying in Michigan to be
    made available for pro-Second Amendment worthy causes in the form of
    grants. ADVANCE TICKET SALES ONLY - NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD ON THE DAY
    OF THE EVENT! To buy your tickets, or for further information, please
    contact Jerry Kraus, Chairman of Oakland County Friends of the NRA, at
    (248) 706-1513, or by e-mail at jerrykraus@comcast.net.

    NEBRASKA
    Lincoln Update: On Monday, the Lincoln City Council passed the
    ordinance proposed by Mayor Colleen Seng (D), to add a list of crimes to
    an existing ordinance that would restrict who can possess a firearm
    within the Lincoln city limits. The new state law already bans
    concealed weapons in government buildings that contain courthouses or
    city hall meetings, but the city council also passed another ordinance
    expanding the ban to include other dangerous weapons, and firearms in
    plain view. Please continue to call Mayor Seng at (402) 441-7511, and
    the City Council members at (402) 441-7515, and ask them to reconsider,
    and oppose, any further attempt to infringe on Lincoln's law-abiding
    resident's Right-to-Carry.

    Kearney Update: On Tuesday, a large group of NRA members attended the
    Kearney City Council public hearing to show their support on lifting the
    city's ban on concealed firearms. This hearing was held to gauge public
    opinion. In response to the concealed carry ban, citizens organized the
    Kearney "Right to Carry Concealed" Taskforce. The taskforce held their
    first meeting on Thursday to brainstorm ideas to help inform the City
    Council that concealed permit holders are law-abiding citizens and not
    criminals. Please contact the Kearney City Council members at (308)
    233-3216 and ask them to support lifting the city's ban on concealed
    firearms.

    Columbus Update: In a surprise move, the Columbus City Council Public
    Property, Safety and Works Committee met on Monday, and voted to retain
    the city's ordinance barring concealed weapons. This issue will be
    revisited next year after the new state law has been in place for a few
    months. Please check your email and www.NRAILA.com for future updates
    on this infringement of Columbus city residents right to keep and bear
    arms.

    NEW YORK
    The long awaited vote to close the Suffolk County trap-and-skeet
    shooting range took place on August 23, and the Suffolk County
    Legislature voted of 15-3 in opposition to Legislator Kate Browning's
    bill to close the Trap & Skeet range in Southaven County Park.
    Congratulations, Suffolk County! Many thanks go out to the local
    shooters and legislators responsible for this decision. To call and
    thank the Suffolk County Legislature for making the right decision to
    keep the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet range open please call (631)
    853-4074. The battle to keep the range open is far from over; the Long
    Island Pine Barrens Society is currently suing the Suffolk County
    Government and the New York State Pine Barrens Commission for, in their
    opinion, illegally re-opening the range. Please continue to show your
    support by visiting the range located at 165 Gerard Road in Yaphank,

    NORTH CAROLINA
    Hunters in North Carolina, who have been deprived of the ability to hunt
    on Sunday for more than a century, now they have a chance to speak out.
    The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission held public meetings
    earlier this year to get input on the fate of Sunday hunting in the
    state. Now the Commission is allowing the public to submit comments
    online, and the comment period ends on Thursday, August 31. There is no
    scientific reason that hunters shouldn't go afield on Sunday. In fact,
    only eight states have a complete prohibition on Sunday hunting. The
    states allowing hunting on Sundays have healthy game populations and do
    not have higher rates of hunter accidents or landowner-hunter conflicts.
    All the arguments against Sunday hunting are without merit. The bans
    works to discourage hunting at a time when hunter recruitment and
    participation must be encouraged in order to save our hunting heritage.
    To find out more about why Sunday hunting should be allowed, read
    NRA-ILA's fact sheet on the issue at www.NRAILA.org. Please take the
    time to submit your comments about Sunday hunting online by clicking
    www.ncwildlife.org/sunday_hunt/sunday_hunt.htm. Remember, you have
    until Thursday, August 31, to let your voice be heard!

    WISCONSIN
    Registration for the NRA and Future Wisconsin Sportsmen's Conference is
    filling up fast! This event is open to the public, and the cost is $10.
    Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 9, at the Bluemound Gardens
    Conference Center, 11703 West Bluemound Road, Wauwatosa, WI 53226. The
    event begins at 7:00 a.m., with a breakfast buffet. Conference speakers
    include State Senators Tom Reynolds and Dave Zien, and State
    Representative Scott Gunderson among others. In conjunction with this
    event, you'll want to make plans to also join NRA-ILA Grassroots

    RSVP, please call (414) 258-1719, or e-mail jean@widigest.com. For more

    Well at least the Maryland "news" was sort of positive this time, a welcome change from the usual "F".

    Where do this idiots get these assinine ideas?

    California:

    AB352, sponsored by Assembly Member Paul Koretz (D-42), would require that after a certain date, the make, model, and serial number be microstamped onto the interior surface or internal working parts of all handguns in such a manner that those identifiers are imprinted onto the cartridge case upon firing. Handguns that do not include their identifying information would be defined as "unsafe," and their manufacture, sale, and transfer would be a crime. AB352 passed in the Senate by two votes and now moves before the Assembly for a final vote.
