APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Strange Bedfellows?

Tuesday, January 20, 2004

The gun-ban group Americans for Gun Safety (AGS) last week announced that they had reached an agreement with Sports Authority retail sporting goods outlets to distribute AGS materials in company stores.

AGS may be desperate to attract publicity to their failing cause, but their announcement was met with surprise by the officials at Sports Authority responsible for the sale of firearms and ammunition. These officials later reported to industry contacts that any agreement reached with AGS was made by the previous management of Sports Authority and is no longer operative. However, at this time, NRA-ILA has not received a specific disavowal of the AGS announcement.

Rest assured that NRA-ILA will keep you apprised of any developments in this evolving story.
