America's First Freedom - April 2015 - 34

Let's all join in to make May 2015 the
month when thousands of Americans
learn to shoot. Simply by taking a new shooter to
the range, you can share your know-how and at
the same time help NRA grow and get stronger.

Make NRA Stronger by
Helping New Shooters

M

embers have always been the primary
source of nra's strength. The collective
nra'
power of millions united to preserve
American freedom has proven to be a remarkable force.
Now we must put that force to work in tackling a new
challenge brought about by a phenomenal surge in the
number of Americans who have recently decided to become
gun owners.
With the nra Mentor Program set for
May 2015, America's st Freedom readers will
have a chance to make their Association
even stronger simply by going to the
shooting range. At the same time you
can enter the Mentor Sweepstakes for
the chance at valuable gift cards from
Bass Pro Shops and the nrastore.
Organized by nra Publications and
sponsored by sig Sauer and Magpul
Industries, the nra Mentor Program
is an easy way to help nra grow and
get stronger. During the entire month
of May, we're encouraging all 5 million
nra members to take beginning
shooters to the range. Over the past
five years, about 40 million Americans
purchased their first guns. Quite
likely every one of us knows some
of them from work, church, clubs,
the neighborhood or even our own
families. And while they enter into gun
ownership with the best intentions,
newcomers can often find themselves
intimidated about what to do next. For
a person who's never had the benefit
of an informed mentor, basic practices
like transporting and storing a gun,
purchasing the correct ammo, loading,

handling, shooting and more, can pose
serious roadblocks. In worst-case outcomes,
uncertainty causes some to put away their
new guns without ever firing them.
Fortunately, there is no shortage of
potential mentors, not if we all step
up. Along with encouraging budding
shooters to enroll with local nra
Certified Instructors for expert training,
mentors can provide actual places to
shoot that are safe and welcoming, help
new shooters understand firearms safety,
handling and range protocol, and help
them locate nearby ranges.
The attached Guide for New Shooters
provides useful info about range rules,
gun safety, shooting tips, gun cleaning
and storage. It was created for new
shooters, and will be a valuable tool for
mentors, one that you can ultimately
pass along to those you've helped. Please
identify new shooters who can benefit
from your attention and use this free
booklet to help them get started.
And please speak with those you help
about how nra protects our rights and
works in many ways to support shooting
sports and train new shooters. Encourage
them to become nra members by using

the handy application form contained in
the guide.
The facing page explains everything
you need to know about the Mentor
Sweepstakes, including how to view
official rules and how to enter. Set
up to reward mentors and other
program participants, the Sweepstakes
allows winners to choose their own
merchandise by redeeming valuable
gift cards from Bass Pro Shops and
the nrastore. Winners are sure to find
all sorts of great gear from these two
sources known for catering to shooters
and gun owners. Everyone is urged to
sign up for the Mentor Program and
enter the Sweepstakes today!
Consider how much stronger nra
can be as our mentoring reaches
out to new shooters throughout
the nation. Tens, or hundreds of
thousands, perhaps even 1 million
new members, can have a huge
positive impact on nra's continued
ability to fight for our rights. This
past November, candidates backed
by nra won about 90 percent of their
races, and with our help, pro-gun
majorities in both houses of Congress
were strengthened. Great as that is, we
can't afford to lose ground in the 2016
elections when we must return a
pro-gun President to the White House. 
With so much at stake, we need to
urge every gun owner to join nra.  
Taking responsibility through
the Mentor Program is a great way
to show your community and the
entire nation that nra cares, that our
commitment to teaching firearms
safety and shooting skills remains as
strong as it was when the Association
was founded for this very purpose
in 1871. Don't miss out! Devoting a
few hours to helping new shooters
and nra will stand as one of your
best days ever at
the range.
