Legislative update

October we’re holding a Legislative Clay Shoot. Inviting all Legislators and their aides.

We’re helping out ‘Prepare to Act’, but will likely be limiting our rallying to Plymouth residents.

No legislative updates.

Woodbridge Firearms Trading Post is asking for donations to help pay their lawyer costs. They had a break-ing that caused significant structural damage and the landlord tried evicting them. They’ve set up a Go Fund Me account (http://www.gofundme.com/8r4c38g664c) Mike at Woodbridge has helped us immensely over the years. It would be great if our members could help them out.
