NRA grant helps Weiser gun club make key improvements
Weiser — Realities come from a dream.
Jay Border, Joe Baker and Scott Real had a dream of having a warm clubhouse with restrooms and running water at the Weiser Trap and Skeet Club. Now, that dream is a reality, thanks to the National Rifle Association and the Friends of the NRA.
“Every year, the Friends of the NRA, part of the NRA Foundation, holds a banquet for the shooting program. The money from the banquet goes towards shooting programs,” Border said. “Half of the money stays in Idaho, and half of the money goes to fund the national programs.”
Friends of the NRA is the non-profit arm of the foundation, while the NRA is the political arm. The political part goes to Washington D.C. to lobby and provides information to the nation about what it is doing. Friends of the NRA is the shoulder for the Refuse to be a Victim and Eddie Eagle, which provides information to schools about guns and shooting.
“The Friends provided a submission of a grant request, and it was reviewed by our grant review commission, and that’s who decides if our application is denied or approved,” Border said. “Our grant was approved, and we received $13,000 to put ADA accessible bathrooms in our brand new club house.”
