Larson commented on the announcement, “President John Adams observed that America is a nation of laws, not of men. But America’s laws mean very little if not enforced. Every day, almost a million men and women put on a uniform, a badge and a gun to do just that. They put their lives and their reputations on the line to keep us safe. Law enforcement has come under attack lately, from politicians, activists and assassins.  I think ‘Blue Lives’ matter and they come in every color and gender. When law enforcement comes under attack, Americans who believe in the law should stand up and come to their defense.”

“We are extremely excited about hosting this event and letting Law Enforcement Officers know that there are many people who truly support them and sincerely appreciate the job they do each day,” remarked Bruce Collins, KXL Operations Manager.
