Are You a Gun-Friendly Lawyer?
By Keith Jones

GRNC lawyer referral service


GRNC is often asked for the names of lawyers friendly to gun ownership to assist members in legal difficulties.  We are certainly aware -- as many of you are -- that there are a number of attorneys who believe in the Second Amendment and quite a few of them are fellow gun owners.  The trick, of course, when trouble arises is finding one of them.  No one likes the idea of entrusting their gun owning future to a barrister who is hostile to this most important right.

With this in mind, GRNC is putting out a call for attorneys who wish to be included in the GRNC Lawyer Referral Service. This service will be free and administered at the sole discretion of GRNC. Inclusion will result from agreement between GRNC and the individual and removal will result from the decision of either party.
