  • The Passing of James D. Surdo Jr.

    It is with much sadness I can report that Jimmy Surdo has passed away.

    Jimmy was a fixture at Westside Range, as well as in the gun community in New York City’s five boroughs.

    Jimmy was the force behind the Chelsea Gun Club as well as a resource and advocate for lawful gun ownership in the City.

    During the course of his life he wore many hats. From Law Enforcement to civilian gun advocate to family man. But the one hat I shall always remember was the one of “friend”.

    My condolences to the family that he leaves behind.

    Details of his funeral arrangements as well as instructions on how to send flowers or have a tree planted in Jimmy’s memory can be found here.

  • Wayne LaPierre | We Will Never Waver

    NRA Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Wayne LaPierre vows that when it comes to the Second Amendment and the due process principles upon which our nation stands, the National Rifle Association will never, ever waver. The NRA will stand clearly and proudly for the absolute protection of the entire bill of rights, LaPierre promises, and will reject any proposal that fails to respect the ultimate authority of every law-abiding American’s individual freedom.The NRA chief also calls for the tens of millions of law-abiding, freedom-loving patriots to stand up and strengthen the NRA’s voice at this time of great need. Now is the time, says LaPierre, for all of us to join together in defense of the principles that make America the greatest nation on earth.
