NSSF PRAISES SENATE’S 2019 RANGE BILL NSSF has thrown its support behind S. 94, the Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act of 2019 in the U.S Senate. Often called the “Range Bill,” the bipartisan bill was authored by Sens. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.V.) and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), along with eight other original co-sponsors. The legislation has received wide bipartisan support before but has never advanced to the president.
