Responsible Gun Owners Day at the Range

Join Ryan Petty and the National Shooting Sports Foundation on June 11th 2022 for Responsible Gun Owners Day at the Range.

With anti-gun activists and politicians once again calling for gun control measures that will only punish responsible gun owners for the evil acts of criminals, activists have called for June 11th, 2022 to be a day of marches and protests against our Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. I say enough!  It's time for responsible gun owners to stand up and take action.  We can't sit idly by and allow these voices to dominate the national conversation.

Join me and my friends at the National Shooting Sports Foundation in supporting your local gun range on June 11th 2022.

Use the hashtag #ResponsibleGunOwnersDay on social media to join the conversation and please urge your friends to participate.

So, I am calling all responsible gun owners to a national day at your local gun range on June 11th 2022. After enduring two years of lockdowns, like me, you might be getting a little rusty.  I know that many of our local gun ranges endured financial hardships during the pandemic, and some didn't make it.  That's why we need to get out, knock off a bit of that rust and support our local gun range.

As a gun owner, a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) and concealed carry permit holder, I know the importance of protecting our Second Amendment rights.  Being a gun owner demands responsiblity; becoming and maintaining proficiency with firearms is part of that responsibility.  Your neighborhood gun range is the best resource for training and education on firearms proficiency, safety, handling and storage.  When was the last time you've been to the range?
