Stay Away From The Libertarians!

Remso W. Martinez’s new book “Stay Away From the Libertarians” is an Amazon bestseller, and certainly worth a read!

“Why do people hate libertarians? One part of America calls them soulless robber barons who want to stick children back in factories and the other part thinks they are drugged up anarchists. Who are they? And why have regular Americans been told to avoid libertarians and their ideas? Remso W. Martinez debunks the myths, misconceptions, and outright lies thrown at libertarians ranging from the idea that votes can be stolen to the radical notion that you own yourself. From personal stories to ignored history, Remso lays out the facts and asks the reader if these dastardly libertarians are as much of a threat as the mainstream media and establishment politicians make them seem.”

Indiana Youth Shooting Sports Foundation

This week, we’re pleased to award the Indiana Youth Shooting Sports Foundation or IYSSF as our community organization of the week.

“Indiana Youth Shooting Sports Foundation (IYSSF) is a Not-For-Profit corporation established to introduce and support New Shooters in the various disciplines of Shooting Sports in Indiana. Particular focus is on youth shooting sports. Support is provided to qualifying organizations/agencies in the form of monetary grants for specific programs and/or projects.

The IYSSF Board of Directors consists of officers and Directors of the Indiana State Rifle and Pistol Association as well as other Community Leaders active in the Shooting Sports.

As many know, finances and the expense of shooting are a barrier of entry to the sport, especially for young people. Traditionally, a youth shooter would have to have been sponsored by an adult to shoot even on an occasional basis let alone become proficient and become a competitor or even an avid shooter. The result of this is that it is quite rare especially in the shotgun sports to see young people out on a sporting clays course or trap field.

The implications of this are ominous for the sport and the right to keep and bear arms. As the diehard baby boomer shooters and their parents give way to the X and Y generation, the number of gun enthusiasts and sportsmen is seen by many to be lagging in the effort of handing off the trustee-ship of the sport.

That’s what led to the creation of this 501 (c) (3) organizatiooon. These days, they spend their time educating the youth on proper shooting technique and gun safety, and providing quality sport shooting opportunities for those who may not otherwise have them.
