Looks like a step in the right direction...

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has launched a public awareness campaign to inform Washington, D.C., residents—particularly those now considering purchasing a handgun—about the many educational resources it makes available to firearms owners. The campaign follows the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision (Washington, D.C., et. al. vs. Heller) reaffirming the Second Amendment as an individual right and ruling the district’s ban on handguns unconstitutional.

The campaign includes full-page advertisements appearing today in the district’s major newspapers—The Washington Post, The Washington Times and The Hill—along with shooting seminars in the metro area, available free of charge, to D.C. residents.

The newspaper ads introduce NSSF as the voice of the firearms industry and encourage D.C. residents to learn more about programs that promote firearm training, safety and proper storage. The ad’s headline reads: “The Supreme Court has upheld your 2nd Amendment rights. Exercise them safely and responsibly.â€
