SCOPE remains dedicated to protecting your civil rights. While the federal court decision was not entirely as the firearm community would have liked, it is very important to remember that the decision was from a single judge - just as what happened in the Heller and McDonald cases that made their way to the United States Supreme Court. Also, court decisions can be legislatively overruled as well. IT IS EXCEEDINGLY IMPORTANT FOR EACH OF YOU TO REMAIN IN THIS FIGHT. ENLIST YOUR FRIENDS, GET INVOLVED, AND REMEMBER THAT THE POWER TO VOTE IS THE MOST POWERFUL TOOL WE HAVE. SCOPE AND ALL OF WHOM ARE CONCERNED FOR CIVIL RIGHTS NEED YOU.
