NSSF Opens Washington, D.C. Office

We could say “It’s about time”… but let’s just praise the NSSF for taking this important step. We need more strong voices in Washington arguing on behalf of gun owners, and promoting the interests of those who craft, sell, and maintain accurate firearms.

On September 10, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, opened its new office in The Hall of the States Building on Capitol Hill.

“We are the voice of the firearms and ammunition industry. The challenges we face as well as the positive opportunities that lie ahead require an enhanced and sustained presence in our nation’s capital,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “We are adding professional staff to our Washington-based Government Relations office in order to better serve our members in our mission to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports.”
