Fairfax, VA -( Governor Mike Pence recently directed the state’s military bases and training centers to beef up security in response to recent attacks in Tennessee.

With this order, he enlisted the National Rifle Association’s world-class training program and trainers. However, per usual, gun control advocates, like the Brady Campaign, placed politics above safety and the lives of our brave men and women. They criticized the Indiana Governor for recruiting the NRA to provide the good deed of offering free materials, training and facilities to the guardsmen.

Suggesting that we, the NRA, are “first and foremost” a “lobbying organization.”

If anyone has done their research or knows a little bit about the NRA, they would know that we were founded on the principles of marksmanship, and have continued till this day to teach firearm competency and safety to civilians through a network of over 120,000 certified instructors. No other organization in the world does more than the NRA to educate people on the safe and responsible use of firearms.

Not only do we instruct civilians, but we also instruct law enforcement. Over 65,000 Law Enforcement instructors have gone through our NRA training programs, and there are currently over 13,000 active instructors – specifically in law enforcement.

So to say the NRA has no credibility in training those in the armed forces is a fallacy. It’s pretty easy to identify those who have and haven’t done their research.

About the NRA-ILA:

Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    Unfortunate that Jim Brady was shot that day as well as President and police officer.

    When you are in public office that is part of the risk you take, just like an officer, trooper, deputy or even
    a fireman running into a burning building.

    Brady Bunch must be upset because they did not offer to train anyone.

    So the same people at Brady that have been telling us for years that only the police and the “militia” should have guns, are all upset that the “militia” is now getting training? That makes about as much sense as everything else that comes out of their lying pieholes.
