SOS! Save Our Sportsmen's Club!
I am creating this petition as a private citizen and member of the Los Alamos Sportsmen's Club.
As you may know, the US Department of Energy (DOE) grants a license to LASC on an annual basis. That license expires December 31, and recent communication from DOE, as reported by the Los Alamos Reporter's Facebook page, indicates the Club may be facing permanent closure with an order to cease operations and will include an order to vacate the property based on nebulous terms for a new annual license, which more than likely will be viewed as untenable.
The good news is that we may have a short period of time that can be used to gain public support to voice opposition to this untenable situation.
You might agree with me that LASC provides a robust, valuable and critical community-based outdoor sporting service and safe location for residents of Los Alamos to include a vast number of citizens in northern New Mexico.
LASC offers all residents of northern New Mexico a safe and structured environment for a variety of sporting endeavors to include a rifle range, archery facilities, an indoor range, specific areas for handgun use, competitive events for handgun, shotgun, and rifle aficionados, a variety of shotgun-related sporting disciplines, and a classroom facility as a location for imparting firearm safety training to members and the public.
In short, outside of the NRA's multi-million dollar facility in Raton, we proudly believe LASC is the finest such multi-faceted sporting facility north of Albuquerque. To lose such a valuable community asset would be tragic to the residents of not just Los Alamos, but to those of northern New Mexico as well.
I am asking for your help and support in communicating the devastating effect of possible LASC closure to public officials by signing this petition. You are also able to add comments along with your signature.
Thank you in advance, and please - stay safe...
UPDATE 12/19/21: Feel free to pass on this petition's link to family, friends, co-workers, politicians, etc.. The PR word should be spread as far and wide as possible. Also, note, this website may solicit you for a "donation" to support the site...donations aren't required, but if you feel a contribution is worthwhile I'm sure they'd appreciate it.
