NSSF President Breaks Silence At Vegas Gun Show

The Newtown-based organization that represents America's gun manufacturers has been quiet since a gunman murdered 26 children and adults in school just down the road, but it seems that the group's president, Steve Sanetti, is getting ready to break that silence. Today, thousands of gun dealers and manufacturers are coming together in Las Vegas for the group's annual SHOT Show -- the industry's main convention -- and the president is set to address them. A copy of the president's remarks is already up on the group's website.

"The State of our industry is, in a word, misunderstood," he says.
