NEWTOWN, Conn. — In Connecticut, the birthplace of the modern firearms industry, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) this week launched radio ads to encourage citizens to contact members of the General Assembly to urge lawmakers to focus on measures that would truly be effective in preventing future criminal misuse of firearms and not punish law-biding gun owners and the companies based in the Constitution State.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of more than 8,000 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers.
