From Texas Public Radio:
One of Gov. Greg Abbott’s initiatives for reducing school shootings and promoting gun safety taps into an unlikely source: the gun industry. The governor’s office has provided a $1 million grant to a Newtown, Connecticut-based advocacy group to promote their gun storage education program throughout Texas.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade association for the firearms industry, was created to promote, protect and preserve hunting and shooting sports. But another part of the group’s mission has been writing gun-safety and gun-instruction standards, which is one of the reasons why Abbott selected the group to promote their Kids Safe gun storage program.
