The BSSC and the NSRA are asking their members to write to their MEPs as a matter of urgency to make them aware of the far-reaching impact of the draft Weapons Directive currently being pushed through by the European Commission. This directive is being hurried through in the aftermath of the Brussels bombings, but seeks sweeping restrictions on the legal ownership and use of firearms throughout Europe that will not affect the illegal use of firearms in crime or terrorism. 

Obituaries correctedThe Association would like to offer a sincere apology to the families of both Fred Jennings and Frederick Cook for the mistaken use of a photograph in the obituary section of the Spring 2016 edition of On Target, the NSRA’s quarterly magazine. The photograph in the obituary of Frederick Cook is actually a photograph of Fred Jennings. Both Blaze Publishing and the NSRA are extremely sorry that this unfortunate mistake has been made.

We are concerned that due to recent e-mail problems, combined with the delayed mailing of the December Rifleman magazine, some of you may have missed seeing the entry forms for Summer Competitions. In some cases (in particular the 50/50 League), our entries seem to have reduced from last year. The absolute deadline for receiving entries for any of the Summer 2016 competitions has been extended to WEDNESDAY 24th FEBRUARY.
