Fairfax, Va.  -(Ammoland.com)- – The National Rifle Association is pleased to announce the donation of $50,000 (from the NRA Foundation) to the Harrisburg, PA Police Department for the purchase of a fully equipped Police Cruiser.

A special check presentation will take place Thursday at 11:00am at the Hoffman Ford dealership on Jonestown Road in Harrisburg.

“The people of Central Pennsylvania were very supportive this February when the NRA launched the Great American Outdoor Show,” said NRA General Operations Executive Director Kyle Weaver. “This is our way of thanking the community for welcoming us to the neighborhood.”

NRA's Great American Outdoor Show brought top-tier manufacturers and retailers to the show along with popular outdoor celebrities, hunting and fishing seminars, an NRA Country Concert and The NRA Foundation's festive fundraising activities. This important donation to the Harrisburg Police Department is part of NRA's long history of supporting law enforcement, gun safety programs and other activities that promote the outdoor lifestyle through The NRA Foundation.

The Great American Outdoor Show celebrates the outdoor traditions treasured by millions of Americans and their families in a 650,000 square foot exhibit space that will feature nearly 1,100 exhibitors, including shooting manufacturers, outfitters, boats, RVs, hunting and fishing retailers, and much more. Starting February 7th and running through the 15th, the NRA expects nearly 200,000 people to enjoy the Great American experience next year.

    More proof of how anti-liberty the NRA is. They’re financing the very thugs that will take our guns!

    Stereotype much? Do you live in Harrisburg? Do you know how the department works/ chooses to operate? Do you know any of their LEOs? Do you have any idea of how they handle citizen complaints? Do you know what the concealed carry process is there? Have you seen *anything* at all from this particular PD to validate your claim?
