Your help is needed!

Dear MSSA Friends,

MSSA needs money to support your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

I HATE asking for money.  But this is an election year and there are Montana political battles that must be fought, and won, IF we can afford the fight.  Foremost, there will be the expense to explain LR-130 to the voting public.  Then, there will be the race for Governor, for Attorney General, and for seats in the Montana Legislature.

If Montana hopes to avoid the debacle unfolding in Virginia, the Montana Shooting Sports Association (MSSA) MUST be involved in all of these important races.  That takes money.  That’s up to you.  There are no sugar daddies out there to drop big bucks on MSSA.  Just you.

A lot of pro-gun entities beg for money with every email they send.  I don’t like that, so I don’t do it.  But, I wouldn’t be a good leader for MSSA if I didn’t bite the bullet and send you this pitch for a donation for MSSA’s political effort.

Yes, MSSA has been highly successful.  Because of that, gun laws are good in Montana.  You don’t feel threatened – at least not this week.  But, the threats to your RKBA are just around the corner, when the Legislature meets a year from now.  There WILL be bills introduced for a universal background check, for a red flag law, and other restrictions on your rights.  The only thing standing between you and the loss of your gun rights in Montana is MSSA.

We need to make sure we get a governor elected who will sign our pro-gun bills, and legislators elected who will kill the anti-gun bills.  Again, that takes money.

MSSA can only spend money on political stuff from its Political Action Committee (PAC), an entity separate from our nonprofit MSSA corporation.  So, if you will make a donation for MSSA’s political efforts, it must be made to our PAC, the “Montana Shooting Sports Association Political Committee” (or MSSA-PC for short).

So, a check may be made to MSSA-PC and mailed to:

MSSA-PC
P.O. Box 4924
Missoula, Montana 59806

Here are the rules:  If you donate over $200 in any year, we must report your name, address, occupation, and employer to the Federal Elections Commission.  So, if your check is for more than $200, please include that information.  There is no limit to the amount MSSA can accept from an individual, we just need the information to properly report the donor to the FEC.

We REALLY need to build the treasury for our PAC, and we need your donation to do that!  Please send us the most generous donation you can, or even something every month for the next six to nine months.

Thanks so much for your help in defending your freedoms.

Best wishes,

Gary Marbut, President
