(Photo: Servando Miramontes)In previous years the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) National Police Shooting Competition (NPSC) included events with names like "Head Shots Only," in which the event’s course description contends that police officers need to practice shooting directly at people’s heads.
Courses like this are only one of the many reasons why, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, activists and family members of police shootings victims call the annual NPSC the "killer cop contest."
The competition is set to begin September 15 at Shooting Range Park in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The contest brings together more than 500 officers from various law enforcement agencies across the country to judge who’s best at using lethal weapons. A similar regional shooting competition has already begun.
