NRA's David Keene and Kayne Robinson during the Hunters Rights seminar at the NRA Convention

St. Louis, Missouri - Headlined by NRA President David Keene and Executive Director of General Operations Kayne Robinson, this weekend's seminar covering “What NRA Does for Hunters” took place on Saturday at the America's Center Convention Complex. Sponsored by Cabela's, the 3 p.m. round table covered everything from the mounting influence of animal rights’ groups on hunting to the falling accessing public hunting lands.

"It's a big country, there's a lot of urbanization, and people are destroying places to hunt, places to shoot in preparation for hunting," said Robinson, "They create mountains of regulation that the average person is unwilling to put up with."


St. Louis, Missouri - NRA's Meeting of Members opened this morning inside the Edward Jones — home of the National Football League's St. Louis Rams.

J.R. Robbins has been working on the front lines of hunting for decades.

That's why he is the perfect choice to head up the “What NRA Does for Hunters” seminar at the 2012 Annual Meetings and Exhibits next week in St. Louis.

Sponsored by Cabela's, J.R. will be joined by NRA President David Keene, General Operations Executive Director Kayne Robinson, NRA-ILA Hunting Policy Manager Darren La Sorte and others to take another look at issues such as:

Norma USA opens ammo operations in America

Norma Ammunition CEO Torbjörn Lindskog and NRA's Kayne Robinson at SHOT Show 2012Las Vegas, Nevada - I’ll be the first to admit that I know very little about about guns. If there’s a question about a particular firearm, either I’ll place a call to the boys over in the NRA National Firearms Museum or run over to the NRA Publications office down the hall. And Brinkman, yes, sometimes I’ll ask NRAblog’s Kerrin Brinkman too. But when it comes to ammunition, the first place I go for the info is NRA General Operations Executive Director Kayne Robinson.

Whether you’re target shooting, varmint hunting or heading out for an African safari, Kayne can tell you exactly what ammo you’re going to need. That’s why I went to him when we started talking about writing a post on Norma USA.
