Delaware Calls for Assistance!
Moving from state to state (New York, Connecticut, Colorado and New York) where the left wing of their party holds the governorships and controls the legislatures, the Obama administration and their anti-Second Amendment zealots have now targeted Delaware, the home state of Vice President/Obama “gun czar” Joe Biden (whose son Beau Biden is Attorney General). And Jim and Sarah Brady live in Lewes, Delaware. With all of that, the anti-gun forces recognize that Delaware is a battle they can not afford to lose – for them it is an absolute “must win” and they are pulling out all of the stops.
Led by the Delaware State Sportsmen’s Association (their NRA state association), Delaware’s law-abiding gun owners, hunters, shooters and Second Amendment activists have drawn a bright red line in the sand and proclaimed “This is where it stops!”
The DSSA has a long history of success, but they are now faced with the full, focused attack of the administration and its allies. The DSSA has asked for help.
The NRA-ILA is doing all it can in Delaware, as it fights for the cause nationally and in the other 49 states. The DSSA, an all-volunteer organization, is using every resource it has in this fight. Imagine the impact if Delaware proves to be the anti-gunners’ “Waterloo”!
Every penny of every contribution to the DSSA’s political victory effort will go to the fight. If you can help – regardless of the amount – please send your contribution to:
Delaware State Sportsmen’s Association
Post Office Box 1786
Wilmington, Delaware 19899
The Sportsman Channel has added another groundbreaking television show to an already impressive lineup: NRA News Cam & Co.

As Legislative Director for GOSC, I attended the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearing on S308 the Restaurant Carry Bill and spoke to the committee supporting the legislation along with the NRA Liaison to the South Carolina Legislature who also supported the legislation. The Subcommittee Hearing was very smooth and orderly with 12 speakers that spoke in support of the issue with no negative speakers. The subcommittee sent the legislation to the full judiciary committee with a favorable report to be heard on February 19, 2013. We hope for swift action on this legislation. If any members encounter their senator, please thank them for their continued support of this legislation.
The President of GOSC was on a radio talk show in Greenwood at WCRS 1450am on February 13th with host Anne Eller.
