NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- The National Shooting Sports Foundation today expressed disappointment with the results of last evening's procedural vote in the U.S. Senate that has delayed action on the Sportsmen's Act of 2012 (S.3525).

But NSSF pledges to continue working in a bipartisan fashion, along with a coalition of more than 45 other leading sportsmen's and conservation groups, to advance the historic package of bills before the adjournment of the 112th Congress.

“It is clear there is broad bipartisan support for the policies contained in the Sportsmen's Act, which contains our industry's top legislative priorities” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel.

“While we are disappointed by Monday's procedural vote, we will continue to work in a bipartisan manner to address budgetary concerns raised by senators in time to ensure a vote on the Sportsmen's Act before the end of the lame-duck session.”

    And what about some sort of a comment about who exactly shot down this biggest bill to help hunters and recreational shooters to come down the pike in a long time.

    Gee was there some sort of party line vote?

    Did one party mess over the NRA big time?

    Was this Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama?

    This is why Ammo Land is no longer on my favorites bar. Some good articles, but politically little children.
