Our chairman has asked if the following can be circulated to our membership:
“As a member of the HBSA we just had notification of a petition being circulated online on Change UK, by some shooters who are trying to get planning permission for a range at Eskdalemuir in Scotland. Apparently a small group of locals have organised a global petition against, and 13,000 anti-shooters have signed up.
The petition wording is self-explanatory, but I ask if our members would consider signing the supporting petition”.
Please support this petition if you can, and encourage other shooting friends to do so, and spread the word. Who knows when we might want similar support from the wider rifle shooting fraternity?
