NSSF Teams up With ATF to Offer Reward for Stolen Guns


After Tickfaw Guns on U.S. Highway 51 in New Orleans, LA was broken into April 8th, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives New Orleans Field Division are receiving help from a source sure to send liberal gun grabbers into shock.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation.

Investigators said the burglary was reported around 2AM on April 8 after burglars forced their way inside and stole numerous firearms from the business before fleeing, according to ATF New Orleans.

Now, the ATF and NSSF are offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the burglars of Tickfaw Guns. The reward is in addition to the $1,000 already offered by Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa.

I hope people see how much character the NSSF is showing here. By ponying up cash to help the ATF catch gun thieves and recover stolen weapons, the National Shooting Sports Foundation is proving once again they put their priorities over profit.

The official news release reads:

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) New Orleans Field Division is offering a reward, along with the National Sports Shooting Foundation (NSSF), for a total reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the burglary and theft of firearms from a federal firearms licensee (FFL).  The FFL, Tickfaw Auction Company, a/k/a “Tickfaw Guns,” is located at 49035 U.S.-51, Tickfaw, LA.  This reward is in addition to the previous reward announced by Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa of up to $1,000.
