FIREARMS INDUSTRY COMPLIANCE CONFERENCE REGISTRATION OPEN The 2019 Firearms Industry Compliance Conference takes place May 6 – 8 at the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. This annual conference delves deep into ATF compliance and technology that affect the operations of today’s shooting sports business owners. Seating is limited, register today.

SEEKING FIX NICS REPORT CARD Sen. Cornyn (R-Texas) is asking Attorney General Barr for information on why some federal agencies are lagging in implementing the Fix NICS Act to improve the reporting of prohibiting criminal and adjudicated mental health records to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Checks System (NICS). The legislation passed by bipartisan majorities in Congress and signed by President Trump last year was modeled on NSSF’s initiative of the same name.

Other NSSF Articles:


  • The U.S. House last week passed H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Universal Background Checks Act. Opposed by NSSF, the measure would require a background check through a federal firearms licensee for all private firearms transfers.
  • The “Charleston Loophole” bill, H.R. 1222, to extend the background check delay period from the current three days to 10 days also passed the U.S. House last week. NSSF opposes this legislation.
  • The Natural Resources Management Act now goes to President Trump to sign. The legislation will fund purchases of easements for hunters and recreational shooters to access isolated pockets of public land.


  • Just as marksmanship skills can dull without trigger time, so can leadership and management skills. What can you do to raise the level of your game as a business leader, and stay on top of it?

  • In a column in The Federalist  and on NRA TV’s Cam & Company, the NSSF’s Mark Oliva discusses why retired military generals advocating gun restrictions is cause for concern.
  • The FBI’s Preliminary Semiannual Uniform Crime Report shows decreases in violent crime rates in the first half of 2018 compared to January-June 2017.
