I CAN'T understand with a group as larger as ours we only have 3.6 % of the vote or 2392 votes and spread the word to all of your shooting and non-shooting friends to help.

Use the link to vote and help NYSPRA receive money to fight the NY UNSAFE.

Brady vs. Lucky Gunner

The Brady Center recently organized a lawsuit against us. Their stated goal was to put us out of business, and we believe, to outlaw the sale of ammunition online by judicial decree. After several months of spending our own money defending the lawsuit, it was dismissed and the judge awarded us $111,971.10 as a partial reimbursement for our legal fees.
We're a small team of hardworking people, and we took the Brady Center's assault against us and the 2nd Amendment very seriously. So far, we've spent more than $150,000 of our own money to hire the best attorneys we could find. Our goal was to protect our livelihood and to protect the 2nd Amendment rights of Americans to responsibly buy and sell ammunition online.
We believe this lawsuit was just one step in the direction of sidestepping Congress and outlawing the sale of ammunition online. As stated by the judge in his ruling:
"It is apparent that this case was filed to pursue the political purposes of the Brady Center and, given the failure to present any cognizable legal claim, bringing these defendants [Lucky Gunner] into the Colorado court... appears to be more of an opportunity to propagandize the public and stigmatize the defendants than to obtain a court order."
The Brady Center predictably appealed the judge's ruling and we are prepared to continue defending your rights and ours. While it is not yet clear when the $111,971.10 fee reimbursement will be paid, we are going to donate 100% of what is recovered to groups that support and defend the 2nd Amendment. We will fight to recover these funds from the Brady Center and to hold the Brady Center responsible for yet another frivolous lawsuit.
Please tell us where you want the recovered fees to go by voting in the form below. A number of organizations were added per shooter requests on June 23. We will end the voting on August 1, 2015. Once we have recovered the fees, we'll cut checks to each organization receiving votes on a percentage basis. In other words, if "Organization A" gets 5% of the vote, it will receive 5% of whatever is recovered.
Thank you for your continued support and interest in protecting 2nd Amendment rights. As we were very recently reminded, these rights are under constant assault and the stakes are high

Couldn't get 50 people on a bus either, multiple times...
I can't speak for everyone, but i know that sometimes it's difficult to get a day off in the middle of the week when al if these rallies happen... But you're right, the smaller the turnout and everyone feeling like their count doesn't matter is sickening!

NYSRPA?

The folks that congratulated RINOs for supporting writing a memo not to enforce the part of the SAFE Act until they can do it and acting as if it was a huge victory?
Those people you want me to donate too?

Did it before.
Not doing it again until they show me something other than RINO worship.

Before i give them another dime I'll send money to Steve McLaughlin's campaign.

A lot of people on here wanted their money to go to the 2nd Amendment Foundation, an organization that has some results to show for their donors efforts. .

I think they should spend the money on a counterclaim for emotional damage and suffering at the hands of the Bradys for filing a frivolus lawsuit. It looks like all they got so far is partial court costs. Other notable causes I'd like them to consider are suing NY Governor Andrew Cuomo for placing unfounded prohibitions on lawful interstate commerce, and I know Michael Bloomberg must have done SOMETHING illegal when he sent his goons interstate to straw purchase guns.
