Indiana Seeks NRA’s Help In Training National Guard

posted on August 24, 2015

Multiple states have made the decision to arm members of the National Guard in the wake of the fatal attack in Chattanooga, Tenn., but so far Indiana is the only one to pile on a second good idea: Get NRA involved. While other states have relied on military or law-enforcement trainers, Indiana is receiving instruction free of charge from NRA instructors.

Predictably, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has already complained about Gov. Mike Pence’s choice to involve NRA, claiming that the group is “first and foremost” a “lobbying organization.” Any gun owner knows better: NRA is the nation’s primary provider of firearms training. We applaud Gov. Pence for his decision and are happy to see him calling attention to NRA's vital work in the areas of gun safety and education.
