Welcome to Our Fantastically Updated Website

Website-Construction1-300x169WELCOME

After our illustrious Webmaster managed to destroy our last website, she has been diligently working in the dungeon to get this new site up and running. Mea culpa, mea culpa.

This is a work in progress but we certainly hope you will like and enjoy our efforts here.

We really hope that we can motivate you to come to one of our monthly meetings – no obligation whatsoever but of course we will try to interest you in our club membership. Its only $25.00 per year and we have a lot of fun while we educate and inform the citizens of the Auburn Area – from Newcastle to Weimar, from Auburn to Lake of the Pines – if you live in the greater Auburn area, JOIN US!

July 22 (Wed.) Nevada City
Oct. 28 (Wed.) Auburn
Dec. 9 (Wed.) Nevada City

All meetings start at 7 pm.
Auburn meetings are at the Auburn Library (350 Nevada Street, Auburn)
Nevada City meetings are at the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Office (112 Nevada City Hwy, Nevada City)

2015 Federal Update: We expect at least two good background check bills to be introduced in the House. A number of other good firearm bills will be introduced but we will need to be vigilant and ready to defeat any bad gun amendments on “must pass” bills in the U.S. Senate, such as national concealed carrying of loaded handguns in public places. Closer to home, advocates in Oregon will be pushing universal background checks legislation and in Nevada, background checks will likely go to the ballot. We will be helping advocates in our neighboring states achieve success.
