U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The NSSF, the trade association for the firearm industry, is proud to share the Presidential Message on National Shooting Sports Month 2020, in which President Donald Trump commemorates “…our Constitutional right to bear arms by celebrating America’s cherished past time of recreational and competitive shooting sports.” National Shooting Sports Month was developed by NSSF to celebrate, share, and invite newcomers and grow participation in the shooting sports.

The Presidential Message recognizes America’s “rich history of fostering responsible gun ownership.” President Trump notes in his message the shooting sports’ history of community events early in the nation’s growth, bringing communities and families together. Those competitions grew and gave rise to 19th-century sharpshooters, including Pawnee Bill and Annie Oakley celebrating shooting skills and a national pioneering character.

The White House message, issued during a time of record-setting firearm sales, encourages Americans to participate in the shooting sports, practice safe firearm storage and handling and seek proper instruction.

President Trump reiterated his commitment to preserving and safeguarding America’s Second Amendment rights and individual liberties.

“Since my first day in office, I have made clear that my Administration will always protect and defend the Second Amendment,” President Trump wrote in his message. “We will continue to oppose those individuals and policies that attempt to tread on this essential and cherished liberty.”

The President also encouraged all Americans to share their valued shooting sports traditions with others.

“NSSF is honored President Trump recognizes and celebrates the shooting sports with all law-abiding Americans,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF President and Chief Executive Officer. “The firearm industry is proud of the safe and responsible example of today’s gun owners who participate in these cherished traditions and the vital role they play in teaching and reinforcing the safe and responsible ownership of firearms.”

If Trump was so committed to “preserving and safeguarding America’s Second Amendment rights and individual liberties” then he wouldn’t have: *supported the first AWB and said he would be open to another. *supported the TAPS Act and advocated for red flag laws. *called for a ban on silencers. *unconstitutionally banned a firearm accessory. *signed gun control into law with the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018. *called for increasing the age to purchase arms. *called for a ban on 3D printing of arms. If the NSSF supported the 2A then they wouldn’t support a politician who’s done more to violate 2A… Read more »

Yes, Barr is anti-gun. Barr stated after his nomination that he would make red flag enforcement a top priority after hearing Trump’s advocacy of them. He also defended the murderers at Ruby Ridge and Waco. Thats just one example. Trump also nominated Chuck Canterbury to head the ATF. This scumbag is so anti-gun that his nomination was rescinded after outcry from some republican senators.

@Stag – Sad part is that NSSF knows. They are just hedging bets given the alternative. In politics one rarely gets what they want – but it is important to limit how far off we end up. Remember Trump’s opponent openly says he wishes to destroy the companies who make up NSSF. Beating that does not require being a strong supporter, only not being a strong opponent.

Sad – very sad!!!

They can’t help but not tell the truth:

“Buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities. Biden will also institute a program to buy back weapons of war currently on our streets. This will give individuals who now possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act.”

No, those individuals will have a third choice.

How many defunded police officers does it take to confiscate.. err “by back” so called assault weapons that they never owned in the first place…?
Answer.. roughly 70% won’t participate.

Biden’s crew obviously doesn’t know what the criteria is to “make a straw purchase.”

From their campaign info: “Straw purchasers” buy a firearm on behalf of an individual who cannot pass a background check.”
