NRA donates $50,000 to the Harrisburg, PA Police Department

Fairfax, Virginia – Last year's Great American Outdoor Show was a smash hit for sportsmen in the Mid-Atlantic. After a successful boycott of the 2013 show when its previous owners tried limiting attendees' Second Amendment rights, the new NRA-run Great American Outdoor Show restored outdoor enthusiasts' confidence in one of Harrisburg, PA's treasured annual events.

The city of Harrisburg was such a great host, and it's police department such a great help, that the National Rifle Association wanted to give something back to the community as a way of saying thanks. As a result, we're pleased to announce the donation of $50,000 (from the NRA Foundation) to the Harrisburg, PA Police Department for the purchase of a fully equipped Police Cruiser.

Starting small to see how the program would be received, the 2014 program offered one-time college scholarships to eligible graduating high school seniors in Pennsylvania. Applicants were required to have at least a 2.5 GPA and to write a short essay on the Second Amendment and how the shooting sports have contributed to their personal development. Scholarship hopefuls also needed to provide a copy of their college's letter of acceptance and a letter of reference from a school administrator, advisor, teacher, or coach.

From the Pennsylvania Game Commission - ARE PREDATORS HURTING OUR DEER HERD?

The coyote is surrounded by mystery. It’s inhabited some parts of the state since the 1930s, but it’s a relative newcomer in others. Game Commission biologists are finding indications the coyote population is increasing in some areas of the state, yet even those who log endless hours in the Pennsylvania outdoors might go their lives without seeing one in the wild.
