    Most significantly, Cassidy was in regular communication with NRA about recreational shooting policy on federal lands. Almost immediately after joining DOI in October 2017, for instance, Cassidy reached out to Susan Recce, director of the NRA’s Conservation, Wildlife and Natural Resources program, asking her to weigh in on an interior department plan to limit recreational shooting at the Sonoran Desert national monument in Arizona, a plan the NRA was keenly interested in.
    In the case of the Sonoran Desert national monument, the NRA got what it wanted. In March 2018, the department signed its final plan, which aligned almost perfectly with the NRA’s request, leaving roughly 90% of the monument open to recreational shooting.
    You gotta love the spin in this article. When I hear National Monument I think of a building, a fort or a statue. This makes it sound like the NRA wanted to allow shooting next to the Statue of Liberty.

    Turns out the Sonoran Desert "monument" is 496,400 acres (775 square miles).

    Can't let 'em shoot up the place. They might hit a protected specie of scorpion.
    Legislating to prevent people's acts is fantasy

    I wonder if Democrats, Socialists, or liberals, in general, do the same thing? How can we find out?
    Haha. That's pretty much what I got out of the portion I read - people with connections get things that people without connections couldn't get.

    Life. It's not fair.
    GROUP SHOOT was last SAT. You missed it. Watch for the NEXT one! (link)
