NEWTOWN, Conn. – NSSF®, the trade association for the firearm industry, is pleased to announce that Davidson’s, Inc., a leading firearm wholesale distributor, has contributed $50,000 to NSSF’s #GUNVOTE® voter registration, education and mobilization campaign.
“Americans have seen during 2020 just how critical the Second Amendment is for law-abiding citizens to be able to purchase firearms to protect themselves, their loved ones and their property,” said Davidson’s President and CEO Bryan Tucker. “We’ve not seen a threat to the future of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms like we face on November 3rd and it’s why Davidson’s is proud to make this commitment to NSSF’s #GUNVOTE campaign. More than 5 million Americans will head to the polls with a new knowledge of what it means to be a firearm owner and the impact future policies will have on that freedom. #GUNVOTE ensures those rights aren’t risked at the ballot box.”
“The firearm and ammunition industry is fortunate to have a leader like Bryan Tucker whose dedication to protecting the Second Amendment and ensuring the growth and success of our industry is unquestioned,” stated Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “With their generous contribution to NSSF’s #GUNVOTE campaign, Davidson’s is going above and beyond to assist NSSF in registering, educating and activating voters ahead of November’s election. Davidson’s substantial contribution is vital now more than ever and is to be commended.”
Election Day is less than 50 days away when tens of millions of voters, including more than 5 million first-time gun buyers, will head to the polls to cast their ballot in the most consequential election for the Second Amendment.
#GUNVOTE is a campaign by the NSSF to encourage America’s gun owners, target shooters and hunters to register to vote, to become educated on where the candidates stand on the Second Amendment and, on election day, not to risk their rights and #GUNVOTE. The campaign’s website provides links to help voters register and find their polling place. NSSF strongly encourages all industry members to download the #GUNVOTE button to use on their websites and social media.
