Another great evening out with my wife at our local annual Friends of the NRA Banquet!
Ours is held every year at the Northeast Classic Car Museum in Norwich, NY (Norwich, NY is also home of Dan Wesson Firearms). We look forward to this event every year as a good portion of the money raised will go back into our local gun clubs in the form of range development grants. These grants regularly provide thousands of dollars each year for shooting range improvements and repairs for our local gun clubs. It also provides grants for training and much needed and potentially life saving equipment to our small local police agencies.
This year I had a chance to meet Congresswomen Claudia Tenney (New York's 22nd congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives and one of NYS biggest 2A supporters), and had a chance to chat with her. She is a frequent shooter at some of our local ranges and has been a big voice for us in the fight against the egregious gun control laws in New York State.

This is how its done folks, this is how we effect change. Do what you can locally and support your local gun clubs and law enforcement agencies. Help educate and train the uneducated. Offer to take someone to the range, offer to help educate and train the fear out of people and show them what our great heritage is all about. We will never get anywhere by shouting in someones face, we need to educate!

Edited: I forgot to mention that my wife Deb won a Ruger SP101 (357mag) at this event! She's been wanting one of these for a while and I cant believe she won it!

My wife and I with Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (middle). When asked what brings her here to the Friends of the NRA Banquet tonight, she replied "I'm hoping to win some raffle guns tonight"!
