Just wanted to pass along this local battle:
If you want to support the 2nd, here is the link:
On Jan 10th, 2014 we were served with a lawsuit from the City of Creedmoor Tx. In a clear violation of Texas HB 677 (aka The Range Protection Act) the plantiffs seek to perminantly close our gun range. Our business land use pre-dates the City of Creedmoor's annexation and we feel that Austin shooters need a safe place to shoot.
What We Need & What You Get
Funds to assist in our legal battle.
Funds to help cover carrying costs while we remain closed.
Donors will receive dollar for dollar store credit, if and when we reopen.
This is Texas. If we cannot shoot firearms on a very rural 112 acres, when state law clearly states in many different statues that we can, then case law will be established and gunranges everywhere will start to close.
Cities everywhere are watching our case to determine if they can violate the 2nd ammendment rights of gun ranges and their patrons everywhere.
Your assistance shows your support for landowner's rights, and well as the 2nd ammendment rights of citizens everywhere.
