Dear Governor Baker,
I am Paul Johnson President of the Plymouth County League of Sportsmen. Our organization represents more than 18,000 sportsmen and women in Plymouth County and surrounding areas.
As we celebrate Patriots Day, we remind our elected officials of their responsibility to protect our civil rights during the current health emergency.
Sportsmen and women of our organization are concerned about your administrations perceived indifference to our rights, concerns and issues. We feel disenfranchised by recent actions closing our range and retailers. We request you work with Gun Owners Action League to rectify the discrimination that our community faces in the Commonwealth.
We request the following specific actions to address our civil rights concerns.
• Issue an emergency order extending all firearms licenses
• Re-classify firearms retailers as “essential” entities.
• Work with Gun Owners Action League to establish health related guidelines for ranges during the shutdown.
• Reactivate State Police safety training subject to reasonable protocols for health concerns.
• Require local licensing authorities to process new applications for firearms licensing subject to reasonable health related guidelines.
Finally, we ask that you seek common ground with Gun Owners Action League and stop working against the interests of the sporting community. You’ve worked hard to burnish your image as a politician that seeks common ground and civility. We have thus far not benefitted from those policies and hope that this will not be the case moving forward.
Paul Johnson

Rep Vieira and Senator Gobi Letter Supporting Range Openings

Rep David Vieira and senator Ann Gobi have written a letter on behalf of the Sportsmen’s Caucus asking the Baker Administration to “ask for your consideration in amending the Administration’s “COVID-19: Essential Services” designation to include firearm retailers and public shooting range facilities.”

In a state where discrimination of sportsmen and women has become commonplace it’s uplifting to have politicians step up to the plate and support us.

Please join with the Plymouth County League in thanking them for their efforts. Most importantly if you live in their district thank them with your vote and a campaign contribution.
