Trump Interior Nominee Heads To Senate For Consideration

We told you a few weeks ago why President Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of the interior, Rep. Ryan Zinke, R-Mont., is an excellent choice to head the agency. Now gun owners have their opportunity to play an important part in making sure Zinke is confirmed.

A former Navy SEAL, Zinke is also a hunter and angler who understands the important role hunting and shooting sports play in the stewardship of the nation’s public lands. In fact, during a confirmation hearing last month, Zinke said: “It was on these lands that my father [taught me] to hunt and fish, and the Boy Scouts taught me the principles [of] environmental stewardship and the importance of public access.”

During his time in Congress, Zinke has also been a strong supporter of legislation that would greatly enhance hunting and shooting opportunities on America’s public lands.
