After President Donald Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court of the United States, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) announced their “strong support” for Kavanaugh and urged a speedy confirmation.

NSSF published a statement from their senior vice president and general counsel Larry Keane, who said, “We are pleased to lend our support to President Trump’s nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and urge the Senate to approve his nomination before the next term begins on the first Monday in October.”

Keane continued, “We are confident that Judge Kavanaugh will serve our nation with distinction as an Associate Justice of our nation’s highest court and that he will make decisions that will serve to protect the Second Amendment and other Constitutionally guaranteed rights of law-abiding Americans.”

NSSF is the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, and related industries. They sponsor the annual SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor, Trade) Show, which is held in Las Vegas each January.
