THE MOVE IS ON TO FORCE
YOUR FAVORITE GUN SHOP TO CLOSE
By Don Bekeleski
I know I have said it a few times in my articles about people I know at the range where I go shooting, that are not informed as to what is happening around their ears. It really is a shame to see people who love to shoot every Saturday and yet when you ask them, “Did you hear about so &so”; they have a dumb look on their face. Now I am not saying you have to know about every little bill proposed, but certainly the ones that affect you the most should be a concern!
As gun owners we should make it a point to check things out every couple days. Stop by the ISRA website to see if anything is cooking! One thing I would suggest is to definitely sign up for the NRA DAILY ALERTS! This covers things all over the country, letting you know where and what the anti- 2nd Amendment people are proposing!
The ISRA Fundraiser Raffle tickets have been drawn and the winners have been notified:
1st Prize – ticket number 1930
2nd Prize – ticket number 2100
3rd Prize – ticket number 3620
Thank you to all who participated!

LYING PRESS? CMON!
Boy, we are hearing a lot about the lying press and fake news nowadays!
I am sure 99% of us don’t believe everything we read as Gospel, but it is amazing how the press does twist and turn the truth!
Something happened just recently that was a very flat out lie!
I am sure it was used to make the American people think Congress made a great mistake or ask “OH my lands, are they crazy or what?”
In order for you to understand what I am about to say, I have to clue you in on a little history. Back under the end of Obama’s reign, he pulled a fast one, to once again attack the gun rights of Americans. There were so many you are probably saying, “Sure one more shot before you exit office”! That’s exactly what it was!!

Wow, Can You Dig It?!
Everyone knows Patrick Henry best for, “Give me liberty, or give me death.” But the American Revolution’s greatest orator also said, “The great object is that every man be armed" and "everyone who is able may have a gun."
It makes great sense because an unarmed people could become slaves to the government. In other words, don’t trust a government that removes your right and then we should do something legally to stop its governing.

LOOK AROUND YOU
It’s Christmas time but somehow not the same as the ones before! There are a lot of people that have lived in the fifties, sixties and seventies that now look at the world situation and a rumbling feeling in the pit of their stomach bothers them every day. Ask any of them and they will answer yes.
Those were years when America was a great place to live. People went to work and actually enjoyed driving to and from work. It gave them time to think about what they were going to do when they got home or maybe on the weekend.
The ISRA office will be closing at noon today. The staff will return on Tuesday December 27, 2016. We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
