The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, has proudly announced that Smith & Wesson has joined the NSSF’s #GUNVOTE Chairman’s Club with a $500,000 contribution to the association’s critical voter registration and education campaign. This is the largest contribution the #GUNVOTE campaign has received to date!
Last week’s stunning announcement by Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healy was a major blow to gun rights and the Second Amendment rights of Massachusetts’ citizens. If allowed to stand, it could spread like plague to other pro gun control states. Here is a quick synopsis of what happened and the plans and organizations looking to take legal action to right this wrong.
The fight for the Second Amendment is in full swing. It is time to see who will step up and take a stand both on the political front and supporting pro Second Amendment groups. One manufacturer, that has jumped in with both feet, is O.F. Mossberg & Sons.
The Washington Post recently awarded three Pinocchios to President Obama’s claim, “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than to get his hands on a computer or even a book.” and called it an, “Exaggerated claim based in no real statistics, which does nothing but distract the public.” The National Shooting Sports Foundation’s (NSSF), Larry Keane, also offered the following:
The facts are on our side! Not that politicians are always known for following the facts, nor are the anti gunners, but The Shooter’s Log has them compliments of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and now you do too.

We all love free guns and gear. We can also all get behind spreading the message of gun safety. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has brought the two together to give you an extra incentive to promote a positive message. Here is the release and link from the NSSF.
Hearing Tomorrow on Stringent Measures
Amendment 1 has been filed on HB1016 Safety Tech, which would create the Gun Dealer Licensing Act, one of the most onerous assaults on gun rights seen in Illinois in years.

NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Larry Keane was a guest on the nationally syndicated America Now with Meghan McCain program last week. The topic was authorized-user technology “smart guns” and the Obama administration’s recent executive actions to potentially involve law enforcement and the Department of Defense in the acquisition of firearms equipped with this nascent technology.
Last week, The Shooter’s Log, reported on gun control groups’ attempts to sue retailers and manufacturers. In this week’s outrage, gun control groups are upping the ante by blaming criminal activity on law-abiding firearm dealers under the guise of “responsible business practices.”
The White House has not released the report as of the writing of this post, but The Shooter’s Log want to put this on your radar (before it become news). Several states have laws already on the books simply waiting for the technology to be considered viable.
If someone were to enter your home with the intent to do harm to you or your family, having a gun by the bedside and reacting just won’t cut it—you need good judgment, too. Clint Smith, president and director of Thunder Ranch Training Center suggests that to stay safe you need a plan and plenty of practice. There are no “do-overs.”
Recently, The Shooter’s Log joined the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) in urging support for the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act. Congress received an overwhelming response and responded with a favorable bipartisan vote. Here’s the official response from the NSSF.

Also, as the firearms industry’s trade association, the NSSF is working day in and day out to promote, protect, and preserve our industry and our sports. In furtherance of that effort, the NSSF is asking for your help.
If the firearms industry was to pick a single lawmaker to honor, would you be surprised he or she was from Texas? U.S. Rep. John A. Culbertson (R-TX) is a fighter on the front lines of the battle for the Second Amendment.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit today overturned a federal district court decision that had upheld the 2013 State of Maryland Firearm Safety Act as constitutional under intermediate scrutiny review.
