NRA-ILA’s Chris W. Cox

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox issued the following statement this week:

“The National Rifle Association is disappointed that the bipartisan Sportsmen’s bill has fallen victim to Sen. Harry Reid’s political agenda.  By refusing to allow a reasonable amendment process, Sen. Reid effectively killed this legislation – a bill with substantive measures that would have enriched America’s hunting and sporting heritage.

“On behalf of our 5 million members, we would like to thank Sens. Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, and John Cornyn for their leadership and efforts to allow the Senate to consider important amendments that would have strengthened the legislation, such as Sen. Roger Wicker’s amendment that would have opened up millions of acres of public lands administered by the Army Corps of Engineers to lawful firearms use.

The NRA remains committed to advancing the interests of America’s law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen.”
