NSSF Fires Back at Rep. Moran


In a recent article in The Hill (“GOP amendment strips funding for new gun-sale requirements,” July 13, 2011), Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) said that the attempt by some in Congress to strip funding for ATF’s new long gun reporting requirements was akin to a “virtual wholesale slaughter.” Rep. Moran went on to say that, “The NRA is so afraid that the people who are really funding the NRA, the gun manufacturers, might lose some sales that we’re willing to sacrifice the lives of these people that are casualties of this gun war. And we’re promoting it. We’re enabling … that slaughter to continue.”

In response to this attack, NSSF sent the following letter to Rep. Moran.
