Fairfax, VA –-(

Thanks to the outpouring of opposition from NRA members and other Second Amendment supporters, the Standish Town Council voted last night to table a deeply flawed ordinance that would have prohibited recreational shooting, firearms training and ALL firearms use between official hunting seasons on private property.

Your NRA thanks those who spoke out in opposition to this misguided proposal, and will continue to stand guard against any attempts to inhibit your gun rights.

Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Please keep in mind this is southern Maine, any town north of Portland would have shredded the document before it even made it to the table.
