NEWTOWN, Conn --( The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry, is airing a radio ad thanking Arkansas Sens. Mark Pryor and John Boozman for voting to protect the Second Amendment rights of Arkansans.

Titled “Standing Strong,” the ad is now airing on stations throughout Arkansas. The ad comes on the heels of New York City’s anti-gun, billionaire mayor, Michael Bloomberg, running ads attacking Sen. Pryor. The Bloomberg ads have already been the target of widespread criticism from state political leaders, and NSSF is adding its voice to help counter Bloomberg by pointing out that Pryor and Boozman not only protected Arkansans’ Second Amendment rights, but also protected thousands of firearms and ammunition industry jobs held by Arkansans. Approximately 1,100 people in the state are directly employed by firearms and ammunition manufacturers.

“Sens. Pryor and Boozman stood up to protect the rights of Arkansas gun owners and the enormous contribution our industry makes to the Arkansas economy,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel. “While big money, out-of-state special interests are attacking Sen. Pryor, it is important he knows that the law-abiding gun owners, firearms retailers and manufacturers of Arkansas have his back.”

Listen to the ad here.

The text of the ad follows:

Our Senators Mark Pryor and John Boozman have been standing strong for Arkansas. They both recently voted to protect our Second Amendment rights. But now, New York City’s billionaire Mayor Mike Bloomberg is paying for ads that attack Mark Pryor because he stood up for the rights of gun owners in the Razorback State.

He’s under attack from gun-control groups, but he knows that we need to fix the National Instant Background Check System. Mark Pryor knows that the Senate bill would not have prevented the Newtown tragedy, or any others. He knows we can do better for our kids and he knows to listen to us, not Bloomberg.

We are the 1,100 employees of Arkansas’ gun industry, from companies like Remington, Walther Arms and Bresser. We thank Senators Pryor and Boozman for listening to us, and not the out of state protesters and their attack ads.

Thank you, Senators Pryor and Boozman. Call them at 202-224-3121 to say thanks yourself.
