What NRA Does For Hunters At The Annual Meeting

April 17, 2012

St. Louis, Missouri – Headlined by NRA President David Keene and Executive Director of General Operations Kayne Robinson, this weekend’s seminar covering “What NRA Does for Hunters” took place on Saturday at America’s Center Convention Complex. Sponsored by Cabela’s, the 3 p.m. roundtable covered everything from the mounting influence of animal rights’ groups on hunting to the falling accessing public hunting lands.

“It’s a big country, there’s a lot of urbanization, and people are destroying places to hunt, places to shoot in preparation for hunting,” said Robinson, “They create mountains of regulation that the average person is unwilling to put up with.”

Moderated by NRAHunterHuntersRights.org Manager Editor J.R. Robbins, the panel of experts was filled out by ILA Director of Conservation, Wildlife and Natural Resources Susan Recce, Range Services Specialist John Joines, ILA Hunting Policy Manager Darren La Sorte and Hunter Services Manager Bob Davis. Each shared a tale of warning with the crowd.

“If young people don’t get involved in the shooting sports early, then they’re not going to be involved later,” Keene explained. “If we allow the opportunities for people to hunt, to involve themselves in the shooting sports to diminish to a great enough degree, we will have to reduce the Second Amendment to the scratchings on an old parchment.”
