U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- NSSF, the trade association for the firearm industry, was honored to be present at the White House as President Donald Trump signed into law the Great American Outdoors Act, H.R. 1957. This historic federal law is among the most meaningful legislative measures for sportsmen conservationists ever.

“This is a proud moment for the firearm industry which supported this legislation to see it passed into law by the Trump administration which has kept the promise that public lands and waters belong to all of America’s sportsmen and women,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF President and Chief Executive Officer. “The Great American Outdoors Act is bold in its scope and historic in the guarantee that public lands and waters will be accessible to America’s conservation-minded hunters and recreational target shooters. Outdoorsmen and women are the greatest stewards of our natural resources of wildlife, natural habitats, and conservation-minded traditions that pass along the benefit of the preservation of public lands access for all. This law enables current and future generations of Americans to enjoy and preserve our national outdoor heritage.”

The Great American Outdoors Act delivers on the promise of sustained wildlife conservation, public land hunting and recreational shooting for current and future generations of outdoorsmen and women. The law was conceived with bipartisan support and ensures full, dedicated funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). It addresses the maintenance backlog of public lands and water projects across the United States. Those projects include wildlife habitat conservation, road and trail repairs and increased recreational access to our public lands and waters.

It is the height of stupidity for anyone in a group such as this not to be wearing a mask. It is not necessary to look at the act of masking as an imposition on your freedom by the government. You can view the wearing of a mask as a decision made by a free man acting to protect himself and his fellow citizens from a disease which can cause death to himself and his fellow citizens. It is the exact same decision we make every day we choose to go armed to protect ourselves from aggressors. Look at a… Read more »

I would and did view it as a choice, for every free man to make. After looking into the efficacy of them, I choose not to, as a free man. Once the DICTATE was handed down, that I must wear one things changed. It then became my DUTY as a free man to resist tyranny, and not bow to an illegal and unconstitutional dictate. They have no right to issue said decree as We The People never gave them the power to state what must be worn. Whats next yellow stars and armbands, not for me. To borrow from a… Read more »

Ahhh.. a reply that brings to mind The Star-Spangled Banner
O thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation.
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust.’
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

So you’ll be wearing a mask forever, right, since at any time you may have any number of communicable diseases. I wonder how many people you’ve murdered over the years by not wearing a mask during cold and flu season. How many people with compromised immune systems have you transmitted your diseases to?

Don’t forget that OTHERS must wear the mask also! That is the important part. Getting the sheep used to be being oppressed. Whether or not masks are effective is irrelevant to the agenda.

Let us also not forget that unless it is a N95 or higher quality it’s useless. Pulling a turtle neck up over your face and looking like a dick isn’t protecting anyone. Walking around with some piece is shit material over your face “to have your identity muted “ isn’t helping anything. Just adding to the “controlled population “ virtue signaling 101.
Count me out.

Why couldn’t this act have a hearing protection clause to it? It would also make sense in the interest of protecting the great outdoors to encourage quieter firearms.

I can actually answer that for you. President Trump has a belief that silencers are evil and used for bad. He in fact was going to enact a law against them just like the bumpstocks until his son stepped in. Apparently his son actually knows and understands what they are and do and didn’t want to see American companies hurt. So while he is no longer actively looking to take them he is not “for” them either. So now the question remains of how do you change that in the short amount of time given? Even IF there is another… Read more »
