NRA Convention – Firearms Law Seminar

I am so excited to be in Louisville, Kentucky for the 19th Annual Firearms Law Seminar and the NRA convention. I’m in meetings today, but if you are at the convention tomorrow and see me, please stop me and say hello.

National Peace Officers Memorial Day

Today, May 15, is National Peace Officers Memorial Day, a day to “pay tribute to the law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and to voice our appreciation for all those who currently serve on the front lines of the battle against crime…”

According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, an officer is killed in the line of duty every 61 hours. In 2015, we lost 123 officers. This year, we have lost 36.

My heartfelt thanks, appreciation, and respect goes out to all of you who risk your lives to protect us. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones of those who gave all in service to others. May your sacrifice and bravery never be forgotten.

No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.   

John 15:13
