LAS VEGAS – The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) -- the trade association for the firearms industry -- have announced a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from the 2nd Amendment Gun Shop Federal Firearm Licensee (FFL).
ATF is offering a reward in the amount of $5,000, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total reward of $10,000.
