Defending firearms retailers.

NSSF is speaking out on behalf of a firearms retailer, who also happens to be a Baltimore County policeman, in response to a new department rule that bars officers from outside work involving sale of firearms. A department spokesman said, "We don't want our police officers doing things that could besmirch the reputation of our organization." In a letter to the department. NSSF's Lawrence G. Keane wrote, "The notion that employment ... in a federally licensed retail firearm store could besmirch the reputation of anyone, including the Baltimore County Police Department, is highly insulting and damages the reputation of the honest, law-abiding men and women who are employed in our industry." The rule was made after a criminal used a legally sold gun. The local police union is suing to challenge the rule.--Courtesy NSSF
