Gun Owners’ Action League hosts MA Legislators for 4th Annual Firearms Safety and Education Day for MA Legislators.
Gun Owners’ Action League (GOAL) in conjunction with the NSSF, Smith & Wesson, Kahr Arms/Auto Ordnance, Savage Arms, and Federal Ammunition were joined by more than 60 MA legislators and their staff for their 4th annual Firearms Safety and Education day held at N. Leominster Sportsmen’s Club in Lunenburg MA.
The event which educates MA legislators and their staff about the proper, safe use of firearms, works to dispel the inherit fears that many who have never been exposed to the use of firearms in a positive light feel.
The day began with an introduction and welcome from GOAL’s Director of Education Jon Green, who then gave a safety briefing, followed by sending the attendees in groups off to the ranges.
On tap for the day were trap shooting, handgun shooting which ranged from .22 to S&W 500 Mag, and rifle shooting which also included a wide range of calibers, from .22 to Winchester .300 Mag.
On the line the attendees worked closely with an abundance of highly experienced instructors who showed them proper form, stressing safety, and good technique. It was truly amazing watching the many first time shooters progress in ability and confidence with those few hours of range time.
At day’s end, the many in attendance went home with a new perspective on what it means to be a firearms enthusiast, of those, many expressed interest in acquiring an LTC, and eventually their own firearms.
We at GOAL, consider that a huge success.
Thanks to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Smith & Wesson, Kahr Arms/Auto Ordnance, Savage Arms, Federal Ammunition, N. Leominster Rod & Gun, and all of our volunteers for ensuring the events great success.
