ALGC members Nick and Ray traveled to the Vortex Optics Headquarters in Wisconsin earlier this year to participate in a Vortex Nation Podcast. The invitation came when Nick responded to some misinformation in another Vortex Nation Podcast. They loaded up the car and headed north. This is a long podcast but well worth watching.

The Landmark Auto Group surprised the local firearms community a few months ago when "No Firearms" signs appeared in the windows of their dealerships.
ALGC members (along with many local 2nd Amendment supporters and the Guns Save Life organization) challenged the infringement of our Constitutional rights by this long-time local retailer. A meeting with Landmark Group CEO Sean Grant clarified the appearance of the signs. The signs were a reaction to loaded, unattended firearms being left in vehicles that were dropped off for service at the Landmark dealerships. It was never the intention to infringe rights, but rather an unfortunate consequence.
Mr. Grant was sympathetic to the impact of the signs on the local firearms community and has chosen to remove them from the dealerships. New dealership policies will be implemented to manage the unattended firearms situation. It has been confirmed that the signs have been removed from the Landmark dealerships. Thank you to Mr. Grant and to everyone in the firearms community that worked so hard to restore our rights.
