    SNIP

    Little Chute, Wisconsin - -(AmmoLand.com)- We were able to donate $680.00 in gift certificates to Save a Lot for fresh food. In addition to that, we collected hundreds of pounds of non-perishable food items for those in need.

    A big thanks goes to Joe, the owner of the Save-a-Lot store in Little Chute, WI who kindly allowed us to use his facility for the food drive. We also thank the Fox Valley Metro Police Department for responding to us when we informed them of the event prior to the event.

    They were completely professional and supportive of us exercising our rights. They didn’t have any concerns, and wished us luck for a fun, safe, and successful event.

    That's pretty damn cool. I hope it can serve as a blueprint for more of the same.

    Do you think it would be better suited or not, if it were not held in a grocery store?

    Some trifling sorts might bicker that it is a conflict of interest, and might discourage 'gift card' type giving from other stores. I don't hold that view, but you know, people......

    This is a great type of event to hold - high publicity, low cost

    And for a good cause! That's class.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
