NSSF Will Match Reward for Stolen Firearms
As part of a national initiative to help curb the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) -- the trade association for the firearms industry -- has announced that it will match the reward issued by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in the June 16, theft of 15 handguns from the P&C Gold and Coin Exchange in Brodheadsville, PA.
The matching reward payment by the NSSF will be granted only following payment of the initial ATF reward, which is up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of those responsible for the crime.
"Our reward offer will assist ATF and local law enforcement in solving these heinous crimes against firearms retailers and lead to the recovery of stolen firearms before they can enter the illegal underground black market," said NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Lawrence G. Keane.
Anyone with information regarding the burglary at the P&C Gold and Coin Exchange (Brodheadsville, PA) should contact ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS or the Pennsylvania State Police Fern Ridge Barracks at 570-646-2271.
