Support the NRA and the shooting sports at Friends of NRA dinners in Illinois, New York, Texas and more

Friends of NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - Here are the next batch of upcoming Friends of NRA banquets across the country courtesy of Nicole McMahon, NRA Event Marketing and Communications Manager.

We're in the final stretch of this year's banquet season. A little over 150 dinners remain of the more than 1,100 Friends of NRA held annually throughout the United States. None of these events would have been possible without the hard work of our dedicated volunteers. All money raised at banquets goes right back into supporting the shooting sports - half into national programs and half into local and state programs where the banquet was held.

To attend an event in your neighborhood, check the Friends of NRA website for a list of upcoming events in your state. Bookmark that page while you're at it because next year's events will begin popping up soon.

Arizona business says contribution is "important to all of us at the core of the current debate on gun control"

Youth Ambassador Breanna Lincoski with Eddie Eagle.Tuscon, Arizona Late last year, NRA's Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program reached an important milestone; 26 million kids. That's 26 million pre-k through 3rd graders who sang along and learned Eddie's lifesaving message of "Stop! Don't Touch! Leave the Area. Tell an Adult."

Thanks to that message, along with the coloring books, DVDs and other instructional items that come along with it, America's accidental firearm fatality rates have fallen steadily for decades.

The program centers around the Eddie Eagle mascot costume. Available to law enforcement agencies only, the costume captures the children's attention and draws them in. Problem is that the costume isn't cheap.
