New Jersey –-(Ammoland.com)- MEETING WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 24, 2012 AT SJSC IN WINSLOW, NJ: Please mark your calendars for the next meeting of the NJ2AS will be held on THURSDAY OCTOBER 25, 2012 at the South Jersey Shooting Club at 840 Piney Hollow Road in Winslow, NJ at 7:30 PM. The theme of the meeting is THINK MEMBERSHIP.

In addition to our regular meeting, we will be having a “BUG-OUT BAG” demonstration. Please feel free to bring your version to the meeting so that we can compare and contrast. This is an opportunity for members of our Society to share vital information, and to learn from each other.

South Jersey Shooting Club’s facilities at 840 Piney Hollow Road in Winslow, NJ located just to the left of Bangers Sport Shop. We have decided not to bring in any outside speakers for this meeting so that we can concentrate on the single most important contribution each one of us can make towards the success of our mission – increasing our membership.

I recently attended the SAF GRPC in Orlando Florida. I attend this event every year at my own expense because it is critical to my personal growth as a 2A/RKBA leader. It is always an exceptional way to network with other leaders across our nation and to share essential information and techniques. This past conference served to validate something for me that I already come to accept, in order to be successful in overcoming the obstacles that the three branches of New Jersey’s government impose upon our fundamental right to keep and bear arms, WE MUST SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE OUR MEMBERSHIP! NUMBERS COUNT *PERIOD*!!!

In order to find more and better ways to recruit members, we will be running the “THINK MEMBERSHIP” contest from October 15 to November 15, 2012. The individuals who come up with the top five ideas for future recruiting campaigns will receive prizes to be determined. This contest will will be judged by a panel of advisers appointed by the President. Please submit your entries to [email protected] Please be sure to fully identify yourself so that we can award the winners.

***NOTE: If you or someone you know is in a position to donate any prizes or incentives for this or any other campaigns or events we might run in the future, please contact me. We are always looking for items and services that we can use for prizes. Thank you.

Some people have asked me why we are continuing our campaign against Assemblywoman Linda Stender since it looks like her bill may be stalled. The answer is simple. We DO NOT WANT legislators to get away with introducing bills that endanger innocent gun owners. WE will STOP when she withdraws this DANGEROUS bill and stops introducing other such bills.. PLEASE keep up the pressure on Assemblywoman Linda Stender to withdraw her bill A1216. I realize that I ask a lot of the members, but we need to be seen as a force in New Jersey if we are going to accomplish our goal of ELIMINATING the unconstitutional obstacles to our RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS! Now is the time for action. Please email, FAX, write, call and visit Linda Stender’s office. As always, be polite, professional and firm. We cannot let up as long as bills like this are introduced in the Assembly. Here is the relevant contact information:

Between 70 and 80 people attended the FIRST ANNUAL NJ2AS BBQ/PICNIC. It was a *HUGE* success. Member Joe Alessandrini (AKA DJ Drini) and SDJ Rick kept the music flowing from start to finish. There was a LARGE Fire Truck Bouncy Room as well as other games and activities for the children. We even had a professional, theater-style popcorn machine. There was plenty to eat and drink and from what I could tell, everyone had an excellent time mingling and getting to meet each other and their families. I want to thank everyone who attended and I am already looking forward to next year’s event.

I would especially like to thank everyone who helped plan and execute this wonderful party. Tom Titanski and his wife Jeane did an exceptional job with planning and setup. Kudos to my lovely wife Nancy(our newest member as of today) for helping with the shopping. Gerald Duffy was INVALUABLE for preparing the grill*S* (as in three ENORMOUS grills) as well as a few dozen other tasks. Gary Chrzan and Joe Rodriguez did an IMPOSSIBLY *AMAZING job cooking up all the hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken assisted by the ever smiling Oscar Velasquez. The lovely Debbie (of Debbie got her CCW fame) helped in numerous ways, including keeping the cooks supplied and cracking the whip.

Many other people brought desserts and pitched in in a multitude of ways. I apologize if I forgot to mention your names but your help and generosity are greatly appreciated. The GUN SHAPED COOKIES were an especially welcome treat. Thank you all for participating and helping to make this a truly enjoyable event.

Gun For Hire and The Bullet Hole are proud to be be hosting our third annual FNRA Dinner.
If you were lucky enough to get a ticket to the previous FNRA dinners you know the high caliber of people, food and items that were up for auction. Both previous dinners broke records and were sold out. As you may be aware the FNRA Dinner is a great evening out that helps support local shooting safety and educational programs. 50% of the proceeds stay local! It’s where you can show your support for your constitutional rights just by being there. The atmosphere is exciting and fun with plenty of great food, drinks and laughs. Each year we have plenty of items up for auction that are in different price categories as well as industries. Great items for Men, Women, Kids, Hunters, Firearm, Bow and Knife lovers. Most importantly there are always plenty of items that help you show your support for America and your 2nd amendment and constitutional rights.
