NRA Illinois Lobbyist Todd Vandermyde joins Cam Edwards at the 2011 SHOT Show at Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Vandermyde explains that this year, like others before, he brought Illinois legislators to this event so that they could become educated about the gun industry and the many jobs and economic benefits it creates. Illinois is home to many leading gun and gear manufacturers despite restrictive gun laws in the state, and many of the businesses belong to families or treat their many employees like family, making for some of the best jobs in the state during troublesome economic times.
