NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- NSSF and Connecticut-based firearms manufacturers were back in Hartford this week to answer questions from the Legislative Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety.

NSSF, along with Colt’s Manufacturing Co., Smith & Wesson, Stag Arms, Mossberg, Ruger, Cabela’s, Ammunition Storage Components and Savage Sports Corp. attended the 90-minute public hearing and also spoke one-on-one with several media outlets, resulting in several articles.

In addition, Cabela’s personnel at the company’s East Hartford store this week demonstrated for several legislators how the National Instant Criminal Background Check system (NICS) works to qualify firearms purchases.

Connecticut is considering a range of gun-control measures. NSSF and the industry are working both publicly and behind-the-scenes to ensure its side of the story is heard by educating legislators about the industry’s products, economic impact and its ongoing and extensive firearms safety efforts, including Project ChildSafe, which has provided more than 35 million firearm safety kits to gun owners nationwide and Don’t Lie for the Other Guy, the anti-straw purchasing retailer education and public information program run in association with ATF.
