Ingrid Centurion, Candidate for US Congress SC-01 attends the gun show held at the Exchange Park Fairgrounds and hosted by Mike Kent and Associates. "We must never surrender our freedoms to the government. Only after all our guns have been banned, all our words have been censored, all our history has been erased, all our freed
om has been taken, would they finally understand why we fight so hard to protect our right to keep and bear arms." said Ingrid Centurion, retired US Army Combat Veteran who is running for US Congress SC-01. Centurion became an NRA member this weekend, the America's preeminent gun rights organization, made up nearly five million members. Together, we fight and win the toughest battles for the Second Amendment, while offering the best educational programs in the country. This was a sold out show with over 320 tables and a variety of vendors from across the country. People drove in from North and West of the state to view the small arms, antique rifles, ammunition, targets, apparel and safety equipment. The NRA's presence sat outside the building signing up hundreds of new members and the Friends of the NRA held a drawing sponsored by Allied Arms. The friends of the NRA provide voluntary education to our youth which decreases accidents and increases safety awareness. The NRA firearm safety programs are conducted by nearly 116,000 NRA Certified Instructors and Range Safety Officers nationwide, reaching over one million program participants annually. Youngsters learn firearm safety in NRA programs offered through civic groups such as the Boy Scouts, the Jaycees, and the American Legion.
