July 24, 2016 (Alpine) -- Assemblyman Brian Jones (R-Santee) will be hosting the 6th Annual 2nd Amendment Awareness event at the Lemon Grove Rod & Gun Club in Alpine on Saturday, October 1st, 2016. This event is open to the general public, and can accommodate first-time shooters or experienced marksmen.

“I am excited to once again be holding this wonderful event, which not only serves as a reminder of how important our 2nd Amendment is, but also provides individuals with an opportunity to learn how to safely operate a firearm for lawful purposes,” said Jones. “Every year, I interact with somebody who is attending this event as a first-time shooter because they want to learn how to defend themselves or their family.“In addition, I will also be providing an overview of the new gun control legislation that was recently signed by the Governor and how it will impact our ability to exercise our 2nd Amendment right,” concluded Jones.

Experienced instructors will be on hand to help individuals learn how to safely handle and shoot various kinds of firearms. Participants will have the opportunity to shoot handguns, rifles, shotguns, provided for use by the Lemon Grove Rod & Gun Club.  All firearms brought to the range by their registered owner must be unloaded and stored until inspected by a Firearms Safety Officer onsite.
