Election Day 2016: The Firearms Industry’s Future is on the Ballot

The election is now less than 2 weeks away. While politicians say it all the time, this truly is the most important election in the history of our industry, and we need your help. NSSF president and CEO Steve Sanetti is calling on all members of our industry to join together, go to the polls armed with the facts and #GUNVOTE.

Hello. I’m Steve Sanetti, President of the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

We’ve all seen how this election has been unlike any other. And it’s tempting to just give up and sit it out, hoping for better days.

But the lawful commerce in firearms and the rights of your customers to enjoy the shooting sports are squarely at issue this year.

And this election is about far more than just the Presidential candidates. Control of both Houses of Congress, the Supreme Court, and all the important appointments and executive orders that the next President can make, are all at stake.

And your State and local elections can also affect your ability to enjoy your rights to manufacture, sell, own, and use firearms.

So please – don’t sit this one out. Your vote, and every vote, counts. Learn where all the candidates stand, talk to your family, your friends and your coworkers, and vote! This election is up to you, and America is counting on you!

Thank you.
