In what can only be described as a blatant display of hypocrisy, two gun ban groups have started a petition to deny a federal grant for Project Childsafe, a gun safety program operated by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).
This year, for the first time since Barack Obama’s 2008 election, the NSSF has won a U.S. Department of Justice grant, in the amount of $2.4 million dollars for Project Childsafe. According to NSSF’s website, this program is “committed to promoting firearms safety among firearms owners through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm safety kits.”
As gun owners, we are all dedicated to safe firearm usage, and NRA is the leading provider of firearms safety training in the world. With tens of thousands of trainers and instructors, NRA provides the curriculum and guidelines that allow millions of Americans to learn how to use and store firearms safely.
NSSF is also dedicated to firearm safety. In cooperation with their industry partners, including manufacturers, distributors and dealers, the group promotes numerous programs and materials on safe gun ownership. Project Childsafe is just one of the programs that NSSF sponsors, and it is operated in partnership with law enforcement departments throughout the United States.
