Tom Derson, a  WBBSC member of good standing, and our National Rifle Association Captain, emailed this:

To All Sportsman Clubs:

This is a plea that all too often falls on deaf ears, tuned out ears, etc. The number of clubs that are prone to think that someone else is responsible for funding the organizations that back our right to own and use weapons in the pursuit of our hunting, plinking, target shooting, concealed carry rights and so forth. Well, I know better! The anti-gun factions are well organized and fully funded. We as Second Amendment supporters must do our part personally and in conjunction with our clubs find the funds that are necessary to combat the anti-gun advocates who want to take away and destroy our rights as sportsmen and gun owners. Just one cogent thought about all of you and your sportsmanís clubs: If you canít own guns there will be no need for your clubs! Please rethink this scenario where someone else will fund our fight to preserve our Second Amendment Rights. It is not true, you and your clubs are the someone else. Dig deep and do your part to keep our shooting sports alive and well. One more thing, this is an on-going fight. Along with your support a one time, feel good donation doesnít do it. The anti-gun owners never stop, so we have to continue the fight with ongoing support and unfortunately, this continues to cost money. The bottom line is that you are doing it for you and your rights, no one else. Take action.

Sincerely,
A Staunch Second Amendment Supporter
