California: Thank You from the NRA Here is what your Contributions Made Possible in 2014
As we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, the NRA would like to thank its members and donors for their valuable contributions this year. Without your continued support, the NRA would not be able to do what they do in the fight for your Second Amendment rights. The NRA, its lobbyists, and its lawyers have been heavily involved in a number of important legal and legislative battles, both in California and across the country, that are aimed at protecting, restoring, and expanding the gun rights of Californians. Here is a summary of some of the more significant efforts your contributions made possible in 2014. The NRA graciously thanks you for your support! If you would still like to contribute to these efforts, you can donate to the NRA Legal Action Project today!
