The article provides some insights into the activities of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in the United States, citing how it has protected the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms. The NRA has introduced legislation to allow hunting on Sundays in states that prohibit it. It is also involved in reducing the minimum hunting age in states like Wisconsin, and is supporting No Net hunting Loss legislation in several states, which will require them to compensate for closhing state land to hunting by opening other state land.
