Indoor shooting ranges are an essential part of America’s Second Amendment tradition. They provide a convenient and safe location for law-abiding citizens to train with and enjoy using firearms peacefully. But in the midst of a massive statewide gun control push, Virginians may soon lose the right to use them.
Virginia Delegate Dan Helmer has proposed new legislation that would outright ban the use of many indoor shooting ranges for civilians in the state. Only law enforcement and military personnel would be able to use governmental indoor shooting ranges.
Shooting at the range is fun. But they don’t belong in populated work places & few are located there. Look no further than @NRA HQs in Fairfax, where a worker was wounded in a negligent discharge, to see that office buildings and ranges don’t mix. https://t.co/Mg32UE0ir0

The legislation, HB 567, would require all indoor ranges with more than 50 employees in the state to either close or face exorbitant fines that would bankrupt them. The law carves out exemptions for law enforcement, while leaving armed civilians out of options when seeking to train with firearms safely and indoors.
Helmer claims that indoor shooting ranges represent a danger to the public, but there’s little to no reason to believe that they’re any more dangerous than outdoor shooting ranges, which are far less common than the former in many American states.
The National Rifle Association does have a well-stocked indoor shooting range at its headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, and it’s possible that Helmer is merely trying to incense the national gun rights
Scandalized Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has spearheaded a comprehensive attack on Virginian gun rights in recent months, and Helmer’s indoor range ban is merely one facet of the Democratic gun control push. Northam has proposed extensive red flag gun confiscation bans and rifle buybacks as part of the anti-gun package.
Many Second Amendment supporters throughout the commonwealth were disturbed when the governor requested funding for a gun confiscation task force in his fiscal year 2020 budget.
National Foundation for Gun Rights Pitched in $50K for Kyle Rittenhouse’s Legal Defense
They’re stepping up to the plate.
The National Foundation for Gun Rights (NFGR) announced on September 17, 2020 that they are providing $50,000 of aid to Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing various criminal charges after he defended himself and business owners from leftist agitators in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” declared Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.
Rittenhouse’s mother was thankful about receiving the donation. She stated, “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much – and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.”
NFGR’s funds will go towards the Kyle Rittenhouse trust fund that is being operated by his attorney, John Pierce. The funds will only be used according to the desires of Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother.
“We want Kyle to have the best defense possible,” remarked Brown. “If he were getting a fair shake from prosecutors, he would be home with his family right now instead of spending weeks in a jail without bail.”
According to video footage taken on the night of August 25th, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing an armed mob who were screaming, “Beat him up!” and “Get that dude!”
“The left is doing everything in their power to portray a 17-year-old kid as the villain,” stated Brown. “We believe Kyle acted legally and defended himself from a dangerous group of armed thugs whose clear intent was to cause permanent harm.”
The National Foundation for Gun Rights plans on continuing to back the Rittenhouse family until Kyle is able to receive justice for simply exercising his sacred right to self-defense.
NFGR is the legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights. Since its founding in 2000, NAGR has been one of the leading no compromise, Second Amendment organizations in the country.
Unlike most organizations, they’re willing to fight all unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal and state level. Second Amendment supporters can donate to NAGR and NFGR at the links below:
