More Big #GUNVOTE Contributions to NSSF from Magpul, Federal, Benelli and Others

With less than a month to go before the election, the NSSF’s #GUNVOTE push is picking up steam. Tens of millions of voters, including more than five million first-time gun buyers will head to the polls November 3 and cast votes that could decide the fate of gun rights in this country for the next generation or more.

Recognizing the importance of the outcome of the vote, more familiar industry names have written big checks in recent weeks to help the industry’s trade association get out the message to gun owners. They include:

Magpul – $100,000
Federal/CCI/Speer – $100,000
Bushnell – $25,000
Benelli – $100,000
Davidson’s – $50,000
Browning/FN – $50,000

Control of both the Senate and the White House are at stake and the ostensible top of the Democrat ticket, Joe Biden, says if he’s elected, he wants to:

  • Ban the manufacture and sale of “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines
  • Hold a national “buyback” for “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines
  • Regulate “assault weapons” that aren’t turned in to the government like machine guns under the National Firearms Act
  • Limit the purchase of firearms to one per month
  • Enact a universal background check law
  • Ban the sale of guns, ammunition, and parts via the internet
  • Ban gun sales to anyone convicted of a misdemeanor “hate crime”
  • Extend the limit for FBI background check decisions from three days to ten days (a de facto national waiting period)
  • Incent all states to enact red flag confiscation laws
  • Incent all states to create gun licensing requirements like the Illinois Firearms Owner ID card system
  • Repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act

If Biden wins and Democrats take control of the Senate, he’ll get the chance to sign many of the above measures into law.

As the NSSF describes their #GUNVOTE effort:

#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.

    All the above is true. Still, re-electing Trump is the far greater threat to Liberty. I mean, no matter what Biden attempts, “Will Not Comply” will be the universal response.

    Curiously enough, that standard response will also be needed if Trump wins, Authoritarian Tyrant Anti-Gun Wannabe that he is.

    So better hope Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed (seems likely so far) and that she is the final vote needed to apply Strict Scrutiny to gun rights cases. And if she is, keep The Federalist Society in mind for a Presidential Gold Medal of Freedom for the next time an actual conservative (big or small “C”) Republican wins a turn in the White House.

      No, there is no way that Biden is less of a threat to liberty than Trump. Please don’t make that mistake.

      You can say “I will not comply” all you want, but when Biden shuts down the sale of Firearms, Ammunition, and Firearms parts on the Internet, you’ll be left standing high and dry with whatever stash you managed to stockpile, and it won’t last forever. If you don’t consume it all, your children or grandchildren will.

      Don’t be like the Democrats and privileged elite who say “I’ve got mine”. Your neighbor, like him or not, is as important as you are.

        enuf supports the Lincoln Project. You can see yourself by clicking on his name.

        ‘Never Trumpers’ should be thinking about what happens IF Creepy Uncle Joe Biden wins.

        Conservative, middle America might not embrace them as the saviors of the Republican Party.

        I believe this guy is a founding member of the Lincoln Project.

        ……..Republican consultant John Weaver–Weaver and his firm, The Network Companies, LLC, inked a deal on April 29 with TENEX, a U.S. arm of state-owned Russian uranium company Rosatom……

        Of course after this story broke he backed out…only because he had been found out. Talk about Russian influence and being traitorous

        EDIT: Now enuf’s name clicks to Biden’s website asking for money.

        1. avatar enuf says:

          Click it now, I have a few different places I link to.

          For example, the death toll in Trump’s miserable failure to lead in the catastrophe of a global pandemic is just shy of 217,000 dead Americans.

          WAY TO GO TRUMP!!!

        2. avatar LarryinTX says:

          Enuf, WTF have *YOU* done to save all our lives? Just run your mouth again and again, right? Sticking to idiotic criticism, not good enough to carry Trump’s boots.

      2. avatar enuf says:

        Hilarious. Biden is not some sort of all powerful wizard. Legislation would be needed, and that is a minefield. Next comes the Supreme court, which for us is about to be far less the wishy-washy place it had recently become.

        I do not like the choice I must make but Trump is far worse than an abject failure. He has improved the standing of our greatest enemies, encouraged the worst elements of our own society, insulted countless American military personnel and their families, spread disease in his own house (also, it’s our house!) and the death toll of his incompetence now stands at 217,000 with predictions running as high as 400,000 by the end of the year.

        And that’s only the shortest form description of his non-stop and unrelenting failures.

        Oh yes, we now know that he is hundreds of millions of dollars in debt to foreign banks and nations with no hope of being able to pay. And it is personal debt, not corporate debt.

        We have never seen an American President this incompetent, this compromised, this open to foreign influence. It’s a god damned horror story.

        And you want me to worry about Biden?

        Not.Going.To.Happen.

        1. avatar Mike V says:

          I hold little confidence in the court.

          A Biden win also makes it more likely that they flip the senate, so your minefield gets a little easier to navigate.

        2. avatar Mike V says:

          And to be clear the choice you don’t like to make is that you have or will vote for Biden?

    2. avatar So tired of the never Trumpers says:

      Enuf, you remind me of a Christian Scientist with appendicitis.

        Don’t feed the troll…voting straight R. Some lying so-called gun owner’s are pushing for Jo Jorgensen(how Slick Willy never got close to 50% of the vote-3rd party azzhole!). It cost Bush 41 the presidency…

        1. avatar The Crimson Pirate says:

          Lying to us all and then being flippant about it cost the elder Bush the presidency. A lot of us just didn’t bother to vote in 1992 or pulled the lever for a 3rd party because None Of The Above was not an option on the ballot.

          If I thought Jorgenson had a snowballs chance in hell of winning this election, I’d probably back her. She certainly is a more ardent supporter of freedom than Trump is. But she doesn’t have a chance and Trump is the least anti freedom of the two options that are available. So Trump it is. Maybe we’ll have better choices in 2024. If Trump wins and the USA survives. It sure won’t if Biden gets in.

      It’s amazing how one man has broken you because he is not “presidential “ enough.

  2. avatar FormerParatrooper says:

    A vote for Biden is a placeholder vote. He has wanted to be President for a long time and never made it past the primary. He only got this far because the rest of the field was worse, and the only competition was Bernie. Bernie should have been the top of the Democratic ticket both of the elections but the Democratic Party cheated him out of it. Yet Bernie remains in thier flick because his minions have infiltrated the Democratic Party.

    IF elected, Biden will not be able to fulfill his obligations to the office. At first he would be a figure head neutered by Kamala and the facists of the Communist Party and once he has fulfilled Beijings needs he will be cast aside. He may die in his sleep, his dementia may worsen and the 25th Amendment Nancy is touting is not for Trump, but for Biden.

    Trump has his faults, he is a big meanie on Twitter, says things unfiltered and talks like many Queens contractors I have worked for. Don’t like him because he is mean? Here is a lollipop, go sit in the corner awhile.

    Bumpstocks? Sacrificial lamb, it didn’t go over well and did create animosity among his base. He learned from it. Biden, actually Harris, would not care if there was animosity, they want everything and no holes barred.

    Violence will occur November 3rd. As sure as I breathe, I know there will be violence. It does not matter who is elected, by how many votes electoral college or popularly.

    You will either vote for Trump, and hope for keeping a Republic, or for Harris and the end of our Country. You choose. Remember there are many who have bled for us who’s sacrifice you can honor or disregard.

      Once a Paratrooper, Always a Paratrooper,

      You have it exactly. We elect Trump, or we elect the CCP.

      Support for Trump is wide and deep.

      A black couple, walking down our block, was pointing at our Trump signs. At first, they did not see me sitting on my porch. When they did, the guy pointed to one of our Trump signs and said “That man has to be re-elected”. We all spent the next 40 minutes talking about the threats to this country and how Trump is our best hope.

      An Arabic-speaking man at the park stopped us because of the Trump pin on my Stetson. He asked if he could walk with us. For the next 20 minutes he talked to us about how Coptic Christian’s and US Syrians are almost universally pro-Trump. He also said the Lebonese community here in the Lehigh Vally is solidly pro-Trump.

      Last weekend, we joined Drag the Interstate. More than a hundred cars festooned with Trump and USA flags and signs patrolling Pennsylvania highways.

      Last weekend and today, flag-waving on both sides of local roads, hundreds of Trumpers, probably thousands more who sounded their car horns, gave thumbs-up, or shouted their support for Trump.

      Nothing. NOTHING like that for Harris (or Biden).

      The only hope for the Dems is MASSIVE fraud.

        Same here in Texas.
        The yard sign ratio of Trump/Pence vs sleepy joe/sticky hoe is easily 30 to 1.

      2. avatar Anymouse says:

        Nobody is pro-Biden. He’s not Left enough for the Lefties, or Green enough for the Greenies. He was picked as a sacrificial candidate when Trump looked like an unstoppable juggernaut before the Covid shutdown nuked the economy. People will vote for him because they’re voting against Trump. There is a lot of love and support for Trump, and people will be voting FOR him. I’m still not a fan, but he’ll get my vote to stop court packing, 2A destruction, killing the economy in the name of New Green Deal, subordination to Iran, China, and other socialist, Communist, or autocratic countries, and all the other BS the Dems are promising that will destroy the country.

  3. avatar Rusty - Molon Labe - Chains says:

    I have always voted in person. My wife and I started taking our daughter when she was old enough to understand what was going on. Now that she is old enough to vote herself she meets us at our house and we go to vote as a family. Teaching your kids about the duty and importance of voting is as vital to their future as teaching them the safe handling of firearms.

  4. avatar James Campbell says:

    Glad to see some of the $s my sons and I spent on Magpul products going toward the cause.
    The three of us have purchased over 10 dozen GenM3 high capacity mags, and 8 drum mags in 2020, and that’s just for our AR-10s, AR-15s, and a NATO spec Steyr AUG.
    Those Magpul 5.56 and 7.62 drums have all performed awesomely. I even left one fully loaded for over 6 months in the safe before shooting it empty, fed the ammo perfectly.

    1. avatar Vince says:

      Biden and Harris have both, individually, stated their intention to pass the gun control they want by executive order if they can’t get congress to do so. So, saying he isn’t done all powerful wizard isn’t quite honest. Since Obama set a precedent of passing law by executive order, we will be facing that risk from now on, unless the Supreme Court would rule it in constitutional.

      Saying you will not comply means nothing at all. Governments use police and even military to enforce compliance. If you fail to comply, you will be arrested.

      1. avatar LarryinTX says:

        If they pass unconstitutional orders by executive decree, I will ignore them by executive order. Wasn’t that easy? And I don’t expect anyone will step up to enforce them, either. But don’t worry, Joe won’t even notice! And no, I won’t be arrested. Killed, maybe, but not arrested. Even then, how do you think anyone would come looking for me? No registry in TX, hell I live on a lake, boating accidents are very common, what makes you think any enforcement whatsoever will occur? If I was getting paid to do such, I’d salute and say “Yes, sir!”, then go home for a nap.

  5. avatar Thomas Jefferson says:

    They forget to list the following that is indirectly related: defund the police, set violent criminals free, jail Patriots, jail people who use a gun in self-defense, gun confiscation for traffic offenses. Riots, lockdowns, No small gun businesses, Zero dollar jail bails for the left, make antifa the protected thought to be a protected organization. Joe will say its evolved into something he believes in now.
    And on another note.
    Mandatory drag queen story hour, Mandatory worship of gays on sundays. And no church for you bible thumpers out there. And anything you buy must be made in China so joe gets a cut.
