NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearm industry trade association, welcomes and fully supports U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) introduction of S. 2449[3], the Federal Firearms Licensee Protection Act. The legislation would strengthen and enhance criminal penalties for thefts of firearms from federally licensed firearm retailers (FFLs). This legislation is a clear message to those violent criminals engaging in criminal activities that target firearm retailers for theft and robberies that community safety is a national priority. This bill helps provide for safer communities, assists law enforcement and protects the livelihoods of firearm retailers.

“Criminals targeting firearm retailers to steal guns are on notice. Congress will not tolerate criminals who victimize these lawful businesses to further prey upon and threaten communities,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “Senator Graham has been a staunch advocate of holding criminals accountable for their misdeeds and protecting firearm retailers. This legislation does both and is the sort of bill our nation needs to make our communities safer. We thank Senator Graham and the 20 senators who joined to bring this much-needed legislation that tells criminals that Congress and the firearm industry will hold those committing crime responsible for their reprehensible actions.”
