4-H South East 4-H District Shoot needs (5) ASC Volunteers for June 26th

We are looking for 5 ASC Members who want to volunteer to help RSO for the 4-H SE District Match on Saturday, June 26th, 2021. They will assist on the 50 and 100 yard rifle ranges. If we have more than 5, then I can stagger the shift times and a few can assist with setup/teardown before or after the match. They will earn time for ASC service hours and it would really help the SC 4-H Swampshooters out. I know it is early, but I would like to know by mid May (5/14/2021). Please email Fletcher Duntan if you are interested in volunteering (fletcherdunton [at] gmail.com).

NRA Grassroots Workshop – February 17th at 7:00pm

Good Day ASC Members, As many of you are aware, we continue to be in a fight for our 2nd Amendment rights.  While NRA, VSSA, VCDL continue to help battle those that would restrict our rights, it is up to us as individuals to help ensure that our politicians hear our voice.  The Institute for Legislative Action portion of NRA has set up a free workshop that you can attend online.  I attended the first workshop which provided helpful links to their web site and discussed how to deal with social media.  The email below from Lexy Higgins (NRA) describes the second event and its content.  Again it is free.  You can ask questions (due to number of folks and time, not all questions get answered while online, but they do promise to get back to you).   I was very impressed with how the first session went.  And no they didn’t ask for money or donations.  I hope you will join this online workshop.   Respectfully,   Scott Sampson ASC Chief Instructor #### Message below from NRA-ILA #### Join NRA-ILA for the second in a series of virtual grassroots workshops we are hosting in Spring 2021. This workshop will be focused on how to be an …

VA Legislative Activity January 21

One of our members asked if we could pass this along, doing so with the boards consensus: The Public Safety Committee of the Virginia House of Delegates will meet @9am Friday morning. Several anti-gun bills are on the agenda. The following link will allow you to see them and either sign up to speak via phone/computer or to submit written comments:https://hodspeak.house.virginia.gov/committees/H15/bill_feedback Suggested comments from a VCDL alert when the bills were in sub-committee: HB1909 – School Boards are offices with adult workers in them, just like thousands of offices across the Commonwealth. It makes no sense to treat them as if they were a school with children in them. HB1992 – This bill expands the number of things that qualify as misdemeanor domestic violence beyond what the federal government uses to take away gun rights. There is no provision to restore rights in the bill and it would create a lifetime ban on gun ownership for a mere misdemeanor. From a gun-rights perspective under this bill, the person charged would be better off seriously harming the other person and getting a felony conviction, from which their gun-rights could eventually be restored. HB2128 – This bill could make a person wait …

ASC Email Changes and Bylaws Update

Some of you may have noticed our last email didn’t work quite right, after much testing it looks like the provider we were using was actively removing our links. We later found out that they suspended VA CDL’s service due to their political views. That being said we will be working on moving off from that platform rather quickly.   We will be attempting to simply host the mechanisms that send out email ourselves. What this means for you is: We will be sending email in a “newsletter” fashion, meaning each day if there is new information the website will roll that up and send it on out. The system will send 100 emails at a time, which means after posting an item to the site it could take a few hours for all members to receive it. Certain key emails may still be manually sent, but in general this new workflow is designed to avoid getting us blocked by spam filters and email security mechanisms. Please bear with us, we are making this change rather quickly due to a real need to get off from Mailchimp, as such we may experience some issues. If you notice anything or have …

Gun Show Volunteers

Our gun show coordinator has realized some of our members may not know how to get in touch with him. He maintains a list of willing members, and reaches out when a gun show is scheduled to solicit workers. Working gun shows is a good way to earn storage hours. If you are interested in being included on gun show notices and working gun shows please send an email to Gary Wyse (pr@airfieldshootingclub.org).
