Club Event Update - March

Members of the Kent Rod & Gun Club proudly participated in the Unite for Our Rights Rally in Albany on February 28th.  As much as various media sources attempted to downplay the event, some reporting that only several hundred were in attendance, the truth was that over 12,000 law-abiding, legal gun owners made their voices heard!  Clicking on the highlighted link above,  to view some great photos, honestly demonstrates the support working to repeal the New York Safe Act.

On a local level, here in Putnam County, several club members also attended the National Day of Resistance rally at the County Courthouse on February more event not given any coverage from publications such as The Journal News, a liberal, biased, media source who looks only to denigrate legal gun ownership along with recent actions which compromised the personal safety of law abiding pistol license holders.

Keep in mind that these massive efforts don't stop here!  Going forward, we must remain vigilant and ready to keep the pressure applied on our elected officials.  Get the message out and remind each of them how much our votes on their behalf won't be in their favor... when time comes for re-election.
