A paper paper newsletter will be mailed out this month with the combination to all members in good standing.

More State Gun Control on the Horizon

The following is passed to us from the Shooters Committee on Political Education (“SCOPE”) and we are forwarding it to our members without editing. If you are so inclined, you can and should do your part to write your legislators and let them know how you feel about these proposals. You should all be prepared for whats coming over the horizon. Members interest in joining SCOPE can click this link for more information.

 

What’s On the Horizon for 2019

Albany Legislation: This is a general overview of what we expect in terms of gun legislation coming out of Albany when the legislature convenes in January. Of course, the legislative season is fluid and this list isn’t necessarily complete and can change as circumstances evolve. Given the 2 to 1 majority Democrats have in both houses, turning back anti-gun legislation this year will be formidable, if not impossible to say the least.

We are returning to our regular meeting format this month and so the November General Membership Meeting will be Monday, November 5, 2018, at 7:30.

As usual, the printable version of this newsletter can be downloaded by clicking this link.

● Thank you to Barb Mann, Beth Moses and Dianna Voit of the Erie County Medical Center Trauma Department’s Stop The Bleed program who presented at the October 1 meeting. Members who attended received credit for completing the Bleeding Control Basic Course v. 1.0 (“BCon”) program and a certificate. Stop The Bleed program is intended to give everyone knowledge on how to be part of the first response to mass casualty incidents like the Las Vegas shooting. The lessons are also good for every-day situations that you might encounter, like car accidents or cuts in the home or at work. Overall, the class appeared to be well received and a change from the ordinary meeting format. If members have topics or ideas for other presentations, please let us know.
