NSSF Shooting Sports Summit

Got this in the mail yesterday:

nssf shooting sports summit

Not much info on the NSSF site, only this:

The NSSF Shooting Sports Summit will be held June 23-25 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colo. At the summit, leaders in the shooting sports and related fields will come together to forge new strategies for the future of hunting and the shooting sports. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee will deliver the summit’s keynote address.

Has anyone ever been to the Shooting Sports Summit? My calendar is filling up rapidly (or, rather, my pocketbook is emptying out rapidly…) but I lived in the Springs for a while and am always looking for an excuse to get back there.

This was part of the Page Nine email from Alan Korwin:

Gun Sales Increasing

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Data released by the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) reported a total of 11,177,335 for 2007, up from 10,036,933 reported by NICS in 2006. After a state-level adjustment, background checks showed an increase of 4.1 percent from 2006 to 2007. The increase coincides with an uptick in excise taxes reported by firearms and ammunition manufacturers, another key economic indicator for the firearms industry.

Experts predict a massive burst of gun sales if a Democrat is elected president in November, on the understanding that Democrats will oppose Second Amendment freedoms as they typically do.

Page Nine has a blog, too. You can sign up for the newsletter. Good stuff.
