NSSF Honors Law Enforcement with $100,000 Donation


NSSF honored the nation’s fallen law enforcement by contributing $100,000 to the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Foundation. The donation, which coincides with Police Week and the National Peace Officer’s Memorial Service, was presented to FOP President Chuck Canterbury at the Police Chief’s breakfast on Saturday by NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Lawrence G. Keane.

“Members of the firearms industry are proud to stand with America’s brave men and women in blue who everyday put their lives on the line to help secure our freedom and keep us safe from harm,” said Keane.

Law enforcement represents a rapidly growing and increasingly important market segment for the firearms industry.   In just a few short years the law enforcement segment of SHOT Show has grown to represent 27 percent of the show’s exhibit space, making the SHOT Show the largest law enforcement show in the United States.
