NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), held last week in Washington, D.C., is the go-to gathering for those interested in conservative causes.
The presence there of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) with its anti-hunting agenda made little sense — except that HSUS works to hide its true political nature under the guise of being a funder of animal shelters.
In fact, this group sends next to nothing to local shelters. So when the watchdog group Humane Watch pointed this out to CPAC management, supported by NSSF, action was taken and HSUS was shown the door.
NSSF frequently faces off against HSUS on issues from traditional ammunition bans to bear hunting practices.
Separately, we are quite happy to have provided sponsorship support to CPAC.
