Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid recently met with National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) Vice President and General Counsel Larry Keane as well as Walker English from Las Vegas-based Arsenal, Inc, to discuss important issues to sportsmen and women in Nevada and around the country.
“As a gun owner, I understand the special place sports shooting and hunting have in our heritage, which is why I brought the world’s largest shooting range facility to Clark County,” said Reid. “I thank the National Shooting Sports Foundation for their continued advocacy on behalf of Nevada’s sportsmen and women and look forward to working with them to ensure that commonsense laws are in place to defend the constitutional rights of gun owners.”
“Senator Reid has always been a stalwart supporter of America’s firearms industry” said NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Lawrence G. Keane. “We were pleased to have an opportunity to meet with Sen. Reid and discuss the key issues affecting our industry, including safeguarding the rights of sportsmen to continue to use traditional ammunition and improving the ability of U.S. manufacturers and distributors to compete in an increasingly global economy by modernizing the U.S. export control system, a system that currently impedes business. Sen. Reid clearly understands the importance of these issues to our industry, sportsmen throughout the United States and our national economy and we are thankful for his steadfast support.”
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 6,000 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers.
