Each year, the Newtown-based National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) organizes the gun industry’s “Shot Show.” Because they have no respect for gun violence survivors, the NSSF is conducting the event this year in Las Vegas, the site of the worst U.S. mass shooting in history.
The Las Vegas shooting occurred just three months ago, and it was enabled by the very loose gun laws that NSSF lobbies for. The shooting has traumatized many people in the Las Vegas area, including the victims and survivors of the attack on the Route 91 Harvest music festival.
This action alert is being posted on January 24, 2018, the day of the shooting at Marshall County High School in Kentucky, in which two students were killed, and 18 injured, by a 15 year-old student armed with a semiautomatic handgun.
It’s sickening to see NSSF promoting militarized firearms and accessories at the Shot Show so soon after a man used exactly such implements to inflict 600 casualties on Americans in just 10 minutes.
We must make it clear to the men who run the NSSF that we will not allow them to ignore the violence they are facilitating in this country.

Thank you for making it clear to NSSF they are not welcome in our communities. We know exactly what their lobbyists have done to facilitate shootings like the one in Las Vegas.
