What should and should not go into a newsletter

1844 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  sshotshell
Our club has a newsletter that goes out by Email to each member every month. It was suggested that a section offering firearms for sale, by members to members, be included in the future issues. A few members questioned if the club would incur some type of liability in doing so. Does anyone out there have any knowledge,experience,advice or opinion on this matter?

I am the secretary for our club, and will include a classified if a member request such in our newsletter. I do put that information in a seperate paragraph titled Classified Ad. I am certainly not an attorney, but don't beleive there would be any difference between our newsletter and the local newspaper as far as liability goes. Larry Lockhart Town and Country Gun Club

The State Association (ASTA) here in Arizona will list guns for members on the States site, so I can't imagine there would be legal recourse in doing so ...

My Home club does this as well on thier monthly news letters. They have a classified for guns as well. Its free to club members. I would contact your insurance carrier for your club and ask them if they think where would be a problem if you include a classified in your newsletter. Break=em all. Jeff

Keep some of those kinds of Craig's List Personals out of the newsletter. Don't post anything about long lost Cobra sportscars or Vincent motorcycles in a barn. Tell me about the latter first. Then you should be ok IMO.
