NEWTOWN, Conn – -(Ammoland.com)- The National Shooting Sports Foundation’s 10th Annual Congressional Fly-In is scheduled to coincide with a truly landmark vote that will have long-term effects on the firearms and ammunition industry.

Larry Keane, senior vice president and general counsel, reports the confirmation vote for Judge Neil Gorsuch is anticipated to be held during the week of the Fly-In, April 4-5 2017.

During a conversation with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Keane was told “… the confirmation vote for Judge Gorsuch will happen the first week of April, right during our Fly-In. McConnell asked industry participants to come to D.C., to meet with senators to urge them to confirm Judge Gorusch.”

Gorsuch faces a 60-vote threshold to be confirmed by the Senate. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has threatened to use the filibuster to block a vote on Gorsuch.

If necessary, McConnell could invoke a “nuclear option,” which would call for reducing the votes needed for confirmation to a simple majority of 51 votes.
