Press Releases from National Association for Gun Rights

Washington D.C. – Late last week, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Representative Steve King (R-IA) introduced companion bills to remove suppressors, or “silencers,” from federal regulation. The Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act of 2017 (SHUSH Act), introduced as S. 1505 and H.R. 3139, further deregulates suppressors by completely removing them from all federal regulation – going further than the Hearing Protection Act.

“Sen. Lee and Rep. King are champions for gun rights, and their joint legislation displays their dedication to restoring the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding Americans,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Most in Congress who support silencer freedom want full deregulation, and that’s exactly what Lee and King are doing with S. 1505 and H.R. 3139.”

Pierre, SD – Today, Governor Dennis Daugaard bowed to gun control interests and vetoed House Bill 1072, the South Dakota Constitutional Carry bill.

Now is the time for local residents to mobilize and stand up for their Second Amendment rights.”

The South Dakota Legislature is expected to vote on an override of Governor Daugaard’s veto in the next couple weeks.

Windsor, CO – Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights, released the following statement following the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.

 

“The confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court is a huge win for gun owners. After the tragic passing of Justice Scalia, Judge Gorsuch shows promise.

Windsor, CO – President Trump signing House Joint Resolution 40, otherwise known as a full repeal of the “Social Security Gun Ban” on Tuesday, marks the beginning of the end of the Obama gun control era, and a big victory for the National Association for Gun Rights whose members led the opposition to the Obama rule.

“We’re very pleased President Trump made history by signing this landmark Joint Resolution to undo part of Barack Obama’s gun control legacy,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Repealing the Social Security Gun Ban is a great first step to undoing the damage done to our Second Amendment rights.”

Columbia, SC – Yesterday, State Representative Jonathon Hill filed Constitutional Carry, a bill that would remove the requirement to obtain a government-issued permit in order to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense in South Carolina.

“The National Association for Gun Rights has been working closely with progun State Representative Jonathon Hill on this landmark legislation,” stated NAGR President Dudley Brown. “If passed, South Carolina would be the eleventh state to remove this government mandate once and for all.”

Under current law, concealed carrying a firearm in South Carolina does require a permit, and open carry is illegal. Constitutional Carry would not remove the existing permit process for those who seek reciprocity with neighboring states; however, it would remove the requirement to obtain the permit when carrying openly or concealed in South Carolina.

These petitions, collected over the previous weekend, were signed by individual National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters, urging President Trump to immediately take action by fulfilling his pro-gun promises and undoing the great harm the Obama Administration inflicted on law-abiding gun owners.
