FAIRFAX, VA – The National Rifle Association (NRA) is pleased to release the latest documentary for the NRA Life of Duty online network, presented by Brownells.
This Patriot Profiles video, brought to you by Smith & Wesson, shares the compelling story of Lt. John Nores, a warden with the California Department of Fish and Game, and others within the multi-agency team at war with drug cartels over illegal cultivation sites.
RECLAMATION is a documentary about those engaged in a constant fight to thwart the reckless abandon of violent and evil criminals: those engaged in the drug trade who’ll stop at nothing to establish and protect their illegal growing operations. Hidden almost in plain sight some 450 miles inside America’s southern border, these growers poison people, wildlife, the land, and pristine waterways in the pursuit of their cartel cultivations. In so doing, they risk the lives of the fragile ecosystems of communities they infiltrate. This is not a battle against marijuana but a war against those at war with Mother Nature and mankind.
RECLAMATION follows the California Department of Fish and Game, the sworn deputies of the Santa Clara Sheriff’s Office, and other law enforcement entities assigned to a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional team established to fight this growing problem. Lt. Nores says, “Nothing in 20 years of service to Fish and Game has been more fulfilling than these last 10 years on the Marijuana Eradication Team or MET.”
From observation to interdiction, eradication to restoration, these professionals take the fight directly to those engaged in illegal “grow operations.” Their story of service and sacrifice will inspire you as you learn the truth behind their fight for terra firma. Eye-opening and utterly compelling, this Patriot Profiles documentary will shock you with the stark realities of this escalating problem and provide a front-row seat to the violence that surrounds these sites which operate mere feet from schools, gated communities, and citizens going about their daily lives. “Stories like this define the heart of America itself – our national strength, valor and sacrifice for freedom and justice and Smith & Wesson is proud to help tell these stories,” says Paul Pluff, Director of Marketing Services for Smith & Wesson.
