NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has officially received United Nations special consultative status.
The formal vote by the Economic and Social Council this month was preceded by our application’s approval by the Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) earlier this year and is the result of a full year of meetings and lobbying to have our application accepted.
With this status, National Shooting Sports Foundation will have access to not only the Economic and Social Council, but also its many subsidiary bodies, the various human rights mechanisms of the UN ad-hoc processes on small arms, and special events organized by the President of the General Assembly.
