Range # 4 Rifle - 50 yard benches dismantled

While dismantling the 50 yard roof, the roof fell on the bench tables and crushed the tops and block. Their was a nest of snakes living in the concrete block so the rest block was removed. Sorry for the mishap and loss of Range # 4 - 50 yard benches, the benches will be rebuilt early May. The 100 yard range is fine and those members needing a 50 yard range can use Range # 2.

Delaware State Sportsmen's Association meeting

Delaware State Sportsmen's Association (D.S.S.A.) hosted a meeting last week with Delaware shooting clubs discussing pending legislation, NSC was also in attendance.
 
D.S.S.A. is the NRA affiliate in Delaware and our 2A lobbyist.
D.S.S.A. and Delaware Gun Rights are working jointly to effectively oppose current and future anti gun legislation. D.S.S.A./D.G.R. 
will notify clubs to cascade information to members to take action to inform their legislative representatives in Dover. Just an example, last year's assault weapons ban, individual legislators had 4000 voice mails so our influence is not taken for granted and can defeat these anti 2A bills but we must do our share.
