Newark, New Jersey - The Second Annual Essex County Friends of NRA Banquet was held last night at Mayfair Farms in West Orange, New Jersey. Judging from the smiles in the crowd and the exhaustion of the staff, the event was a tremendous success. Breaking last year's attendance record of three hundred and seventy-one, local organizers estimated that this year's number broke the four hundred barrier ... but we're still waiting for final numbers. With skee ball and dart throws along with silent and live auctions, all were in high spirits and ready to peel open their wallets for the benefit of the local and national programs of the NRA.
