Outreach and Volunteer Opportunities
To affect change nationally, we must first start locally. Ignorance and sensationalism has caused senseless attacks on the recreational sport shooting community. Legislation and ordinances such as Massachusetts proposed Bill H-3476 can hurt the community by infringing on liberties while not addressing the real issue: safe and responsible behavior. Education is the most effective and least negatively impactive option in bringing a solution to the table, locally and nationally. But the RSSA needs more lights in this darkness to help guide us to a more safe and responsible community, a more aware public, and a more informed governing body of elected officials. We are a community of passionate and skilled individuals and the RSSA needs your help. Please volunteer your time to better the industry for everyone.
Currently looking for active volunteer members throughout the United States.
