Fairfax, Virginia - The second round of snow to fall upon the DC Metro area has left everything in a tizzy. Reagan and Dulles airports are canceling flights and plowing snow, the federal government is shut down (without the aid of their usual shenanigans), and a good deal of underage boys and girls are enjoyed a second day off from school. Another victim of the second snow fall is the NRA.
"The National Firearms Museum is officially closed," said NRA Museums Director Jim Supica. "We usually only shut down the museum once a year, for Christmas, but today's conditions have forced us to add a second day to that list."
Also falling into the not open for business category are the NRA Cafe and the NRA Headquarters Range.
Though a few private sessions are currently underway, classes scheduled for later this afternoon at the range, including NRA Personal Protection Inside the Home, NRA Defensive Pistol, Utah CCW, One-on-One Instruction, and the First Steps Pistol Course, have been cancelled.
According to the National Weather Service, snow is expected to tapper off later this afternoon with nothing but sunny skies (albeit freezing temperatures) through Friday. That means all aspects of the NRA will be back up and running first thing tomorrow.
Until then, stay inside, stay warm and keep your powder dry.
