Show Support For Pro-Shooting Legislation

National Shooting Sports Foundation

NEWTOWN, Conn –-( This summer Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) introduced S. 1249, the Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act.

This bi-partisan legislation would give states greater flexibility in using their Pittman-Robertson funds to establish safe recreational shooting areas.

More specifically, the legislation would help facilitate the construction and expansion of public target ranges, including ranges on federal land managed by the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.

A companion bill, H.R. 3065, was introduced in the House last week and may soon be heard in the Environment and Public Works Committee. NSSF supports this legislation and encourages its members to contact their legislators and urge them to back this pro-shooting measure.

I live in Lead south dakota and looking for advice and help to prevent the BLM from “decommissioning” our local rifle range. It has been in use for more than 40 years but the BLM wont give the lease back. The now deceased club president was’nt paying the lease and no one new. So long story short is how do we go for help. I emailed the NRA but got zero response.
