    NRA news - a look at some states.

    States with updates this issue: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Michigan,
    New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

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

    ARIZONA
    September 23, is National Hunting and Fishing Day. Join the Game and
    Fish Department at Cabela's in Glendale, and the Sportsman's Warehouses
    in Goodyear, Mesa, and Phoenix, between 9:00 a.m., and 5:00 p.m., to
    discuss issues about fishing, hunting, off-highway vehicle travel and
    wildlife watching. Please use the following link to read more about

    CALIFORNIA
    SB 59, sponsored by Senator Alan Lowenthal (D-27), and AB2714, sponsored
    by Assembly Member Alberto Torrico (D-20), are heading to the desk of
    Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R). Please contact Governor
    Schwarzenegger today and urge him to protect your Second Amendment
    freedom by vetoing SB 59 and AB 2714. Governor Schwarzenegger can be
    reached by phone at (916)-445-2841, by fax at (916) 445-4633, and by
    e-mail by visiting www.govmail.ca.gov. SB 59 will expand the definition
    of the term "firearm" to include the frame or receiver of the gun for
    purposes of the offense of failure to report a stolen or lost firearm.
    This bill also makes it a crime for any person whose handgun is stolen
    or irretrievably lost to not report the theft or loss to a local law
    enforcement agency within five working days after his or her discovery
    of the theft or loss; or within five working days after the date he or
    she should have reasonably known of the theft or loss. SB59 will allow
    local governments to impose even stricter reporting requirements.
    AB2714 will 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. Spread the news to fellow gun owners, family and
    friends that it is critical to call Governor Schwarzenegger and urge him
    to veto SB 59 and AB 2714, because California's gun rights are under
    attack.

    MICHIGAN
    The Michigan legislature is taking up pro-gun state of emergency
    legislation. On Tuesday, the Michigan House Government Operations
    Committee unanimously approved (7-0) legislation that prevents the
    government seizure of lawfully possessed firearms and ammunitions in a
    declared state of emergency. House Bill 6363, and House Bill 6364,
    sponsored by Representative Scott Hummel (R-93), prevent Hurricane
    Katrina-like confiscations and amended the governor's state of emergency
    powers accordingly. The bill will now go to the Michigan House for
    approval. Please keep checking your email and www.NRAILA.org for
    updates on HB 6363 and HB 6364.

    PENNSYLVANIA
    This month, all gun owners in Pennsylvania need to stand up and be
    heard. Anti-gun legislators, led by Representative Dwight Evans
    (D-Philadelphia), are pushing new gun control measures in Harrisburg.
    Pointing to data from a recent Democratic Party funded poll that
    indicates suburban residents are concerned about gun violence, Evans
    stated that "legislators should move beyond boundary lines and party
    labels to take action on gun control." Gun-control legislation has
    been dead on arrival in Harrisburg for more than a decade, because the
    balance of the General Assembly supports the rights of gun owners.
    However, if Representative Evans and his supporters are successful this
    could change overnight. With your help, we can again stop this from
    happening. Pennsylvania gun owners have two important dates to
    remember:

    September 25th - Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing: Senate Judiciary
    Committee Chairman Stewart Greenleaf (R-12) schedules final hearing in
    Harrisburg - On Sept. 25, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding
    a final hearing to receive testimony relating to urban violence. The
    hearing will be held 10:00 a.m., in Room 8E-B of the East Wing. During
    the past several months, the committee has heard testimony from public
    officials and anti-gun zealots insisting on new gun control legislation
    to combat urban crime. This will be the final opportunity for NRA
    members to voice their discontent regarding the lack of enforcement and
    prosecution of federal and state firearm laws which has fueled violent
    crime over the past year. If you're planning on testifying or need
    additional information, contact Gregg Warner of Sen. Greenleaf's office,
    (717) 787-6599 or gwarner@pasen.gov.

    September 26th - Committee of the Whole Meeting: On Tuesday, Sept. 26,
    the House of Representatives will resolve itself for one day into a
    "Committee of the Whole" to focus on crime and violence in Pennsylvania.
    The Committee of the Whole is a rarely used legislative mechanism
    designed to allow for a more informal, free-flowing public debate of a
    particularly critical issue facing the Commonwealth. Topics expected to
    be addressed include "One-Gun-a-Month" legislation, elimination of
    statewide preemption, semi-automatic firearm bans as well as other
    anti-gun legislation that would limit your rights as law-abiding gun
    owners. The time is NOW! NRA members across Pennsylvania must call or
    write their State Representatives and send the message that stiff
    punishment of criminals who commit crimes with guns is the key to
    stopping gun violence. Please contact your State Representative at
    (717) 787-2016 and State Senator at (717) 787-5920.

    TEXAS
    On Saturday, September 23, Students for the Second Amendment (SF2A) and

    will be a map & compass course, a hunter skills trail, field archery,
    living history reenactors, a climbing tower, military vehicles and
    displays, and much more.

    All ranges will be supervised by NRA Certified Firearms Instructors and
    NRA Range Safety Officers, and firearms, eye and ear protection, and
    other equipment is included.

    NRA Certified Instructor & NRA Life Member.

    is like owning a piano and assuming that you are a musician!."
