Nationwide shutdowns from the pandemic in 2020 have challenged the Friends of NRA, a 100-percent grassroots fundraising effort benefitting the shooting sports, but organizers have found ways to keep the momentum going.
I recently received an invitation from my local public school district to attend a “safety forum.” It wasn’t going to cover the variety of health-and-safety issues relevant to kids today—opioid abuse, underage drinking, reckless driving, online bullying, physical violence and sexual assault or harassment.
As your NRA president, I encourage you to join us next month from April 16 to 19 at the 149th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Nashville, Tenn.
Our NRA programs designed to protect our children of all ages.
NRA is fully engaged every day protecting and fighting for our freedom. As we fight those battles, thanks to your support, it is easy to lose sight of all the NRA is also doing for gun safety (actual gun safety, not how anti-gunners use the term).
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to school security. In an effort to better equip law enforcement, security personnel and school systems in their pursuit of safer schools and communities, the NRA School Shield (NSS) program was launched in December 2012 with a singular mission—to protect our children.
