"The state's largest gun control group, CeaseFirePA, is getting a $350,000 grant to strengthen its advocacy efforts statewide.
The Chicago-based Joyce Foundation is granting the organization the money over two years to aid its bid to build a statewide, grass-roots response to gun violence, CeaseFirePA's executive director Joe Grace said."
"We are extremely pleased to be partnering with the NRA on this special project Mini-14 to support the Institute for Legislative Action," said Ruger President Stephen L. Sanetti. "It is very important that we, as an industry and as individuals, support the efforts of the ILA as they work to protect our Second Amendment rights. A portion of the sales from each rifle will go to the NRA-ILA to support their ongoing efforts. This project is also made possible through the support of Hogue Stocks, one of our key vendors, and through our distributors."
The Ruger® Mini-14® series of rifles has been extremely popular since first introduced in 1974. Long considered simple, rugged, and reliable, these rifles have proven so popular around the woods, farm, and ranch that they earned the nickname "Ranch Rifle," which is the name Ruger now uses to describe all Mini-14 rifles that come from the factory with integral scope mounting features.
Patented Hogue® OverMolded™ stocks are constructed by molding a super strong and rigid fiberglass reinforced insert or "skeleton" that precisely fits the firearms action. The stocks are then OverMolded with an exclusive rubber compound. This provides the ultimate in shooting comfort, is non-slip in adverse weather and creates a super quiet finish while walking in wooded or brushy country.
Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the legislative arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is committed to preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
$350,000 should support more broken gun buying programs. The good old boys will keep buying new guns. Nothing new here. The government could pass out ammo instead of checks.
