What the NRA Does For Hunters

by J. Scott Olmsted | American Hunter  |  published on October 24, 2014

The Institute for Legislative Action (ILA), established in 1975, is the lobbying arm of the NRA. It is committed to preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. When restrictive “gun control” is proposed at the local, state or federal level, NRA members and supporters are contacted via ILA grassroots efforts and respond with individual letters, faxes, emails and calls to their elected representatives to make their views known. As the political arm of the NRA, ILA has a long history of protecting hunting by sponsoring legislation and referenda promoting hunting opportunities and stopping anti-hunting laws and regulations.

The NRA is the premier leader in hunter/shooting education. In 1949, for instance, the NRA developed the first national hunter safety course. Since 1985, the organization has trained more than 1.6 million young hunters through the Youth Hunter Education Challenge. Online: YHEC.NRA.org.

The NRA’s 114,000 certified marksmanship instructors annually train more than 750,000 beginners in the basic shooting skills necessary for hunting success. Online: NRAInstructors.org.
