NRA Grant Helps Equip Texas Sheriff’s Department

Laredo County and Webb County in Texas are the recent recipients of a law enforcement grant awarded by the NRA Foundation. The monies enabled the sheriff’s office to purchase two AR-15 rifles for deputies.

"This is a great way to equip our personnel and further ensure the safety for our officers while they are out safeguarding our community," Sheriff Martin Cuellar told the Laredo Morning Times. Cuellar also extended his appreciation to the local and national Friends of NRA chapters for their assistance in helping to secure the grant.

The NRA Foundation is America’s leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports—awarding nearly $335 million in grant funding since 1990. Learn more at NRAFoundation.org.
