VSSA and the Media
With the recent U.S. Supreme Court Decisions in Heller vs. District of Columbia and McDonald vs. Chicago, there is a renewed interest in gun laws at the state and local level.
As the Official State Association of the NRA, the Virginia Shooting Sports Association (VSSA) is a key informational source for media professionals reporting on issues related to gun rights, hunting, and the shooting sports. The VSSA legislative team are leaders in protecting the rights of law abiding gun owners and are available to talk with, and welcomes the media's inquiry about state and local firearms issues. Please direct all media inquiries to:
