NSSF Donates to Newtown Community Virus First Responders

NSSF Donate Blood
The NSSF is donating to first responders dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic.

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- It’s often the times of hardship and great difficulty that reveal through admirable actions the true character of a community. One of those times is now.

Across every corner of America during the current coronavirus pandemic, neighbors are stepping forward to help neighbors less fortunate. The evening news is filled with stories of countless examples of people going above and beyond to ensure friends and family, and complete strangers alike, are making it through these especially challenging times. NSSF is joining this fight.

Firearm manufacturers are retooling facilities to make hand sanitizer, medical face masks, and gowns and other personal protective equipment. Hunters are opening their stocked-full freezers to help the neighbor down the street with a hearty meal. NSSF is assisting those in our community who are meeting the virus at the frontlines and battling it head-on.

Indispensable Heroes
The NSSF, the trade association for the firearm industry, donated $25,000 to three of Newtown’s organizations helping neighbors, friends, and family near one of the hardest hit regions by the COVID-19 pandemic. NSSF gave $10,000 to Newtown’s Emergency Management Office for protective equipment for area first responders, which includes the Volunteer Ambulance Association, the Newtown Police Department and the town’s five fire departments. NSSF also gave $10,000 to the Bethel Visiting Nurse Association to ensure vulnerable citizens of Bethel, Brookfield, Danbury, Newtown, New Fairfield, Redding, Ridgefield, and Southbury receive at-home health services needed during this difficult time. Lastly, an additional $5,000 was donated to Danbury Regional Hospice to support the campaign for critical protective equipment for caregivers.

NSSF holds deep respect and gratitude for frontline responders supporting residents in need and keeping communities safe. Assisting one another, however possible, is what is needed to overcome the serious health threats posed by the coronavirus.

Giving Life Through a Different Kind of Donation
Monetary donations aren’t enough. NSSF staff is literally rolling up their sleeves to help out and is challenging the rest of the industry to join in to support the American Red Cross.

The entire firearm industry can come together through the ARC’s “Blood Donor” mobile app to have an impact in a different way. Available through the app is a “Gun Owners Care” team. Donors can join there, search for nearby blood drives, coordinate with a buddy and donate together, track totals and even encourage others in the industry, across all 9,000-plus member companies, to do the same.

NSSF’s donations are just a small part of the effort to ease the burdens of those battling the pandemic. This is what community is about and the firearm industry has led in times of crisis before. Together, we’ll be alongside those who need us to lead again.

@Good thing that they kept that a secret!

It’s what I call an “open secret”. It’s no secret, it’s right in their ‘holy’ book. Ask a Rabbi, they won’t even bother to deny it. But they have ways of keeping things low key.
In the case of the Talmud, no printed English translations exist. That how they keep it little known. Because one needs to either speak Yiddish, or else get it from someone online who does.

Just as I keep saying there is a big difference between the Ashenazi jews and the Seppardic jews. It’s the difference between the Tora and the Talmud, Yiddish vs Hebrew, etc. The difference between those who SAY they are Jews, but are actually liars.
Goebbels, like Adolf Schlicklgruber and the rest of his cabinet, were Ashkenazi Jews. The German Socialist Worker’s Party didn’t come to be known as NAZIs for no reason! 🙂

@Knute, You will have to explain a little more when you have time. Please.

@Knute, I have been unclear. My apologies. Can we start with the big difference between the Ashenazi jews and the Seppardic jews, instead?

Ahh. A clear, specific, question. The very best form of correct! Seppardic jews are the ones often called “traditional” or “orthodox”. The ones that dress in black, have large beards, and, if they speak another language other than their native tongue, will often speak Hebrew. Ashkenazis are the ones that wear suits, have large noses with high foreheads, prefer Yiddish to Hebrew, and have a linage going back to Khazaria, which was the dominant Empire in Southern Russia from 512AD to its fall in1016, with a Capital called Itil (or Atil) at the mouth of the Volga River as it… Read more »

@Knute, Interesting.

That is why the different language. Yiddish is Khazarian.
We know this because there are still mountain tribes of Khazars in the high Caucasus Mountains that did not flee to Eastern Europe when Khazaria fell circa 1018AD. These still speak the old tongue, and its the same as modern day Yiddish, just under a different name.

And then add this: “A compendium of conversations of Hitler from 1941 through 1944 entitled Hitler’s Table Talk does not contain the word “Nazi” either.[17] In speeches by Hermann Göring, he never uses the term “Nazi.”” -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazism
Wikipedia goes to great lengths to avoid saying that “nazi” was a nickname given to the National Socialist German Workers’ Party by its detractors that noted that all of the top leaders were of Ashkenazi descent.
