Fraternal Order of Police Backs NSSF Bills

The Fraternal Order of Police—the nation's largest police association, with more than 325,000 members—authored letters of support for both the U.S. House of Representa-tives and U.S. Senate versions of the Federal Firearms Licensee Protection Act of 2017. The two bills, H.R. 3790 and S. 1854, would strengthen criminal penalties for theft of firearms from Federal Firearms Licensees and impose mandatory minimum sentences. This legislation would help deter criminals from becoming repeat offenders and send a strong message to criminals engaged in this nefarious activity. The legislation would serve to strengthen NSSF's Operation Secure Store initiative, designed to reduce thefts at firearms retailers.
