SilencerCo Joins NSSF’s #GUNVOTE President’s Club with $100,000 Contribution
NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that SilencerCo has joined #GUNVOTE’s President’s Club, contributing $100,000 in support of the association’s critical voter registration and education campaign.
Based in West Valley City, Utah, the six-year-old SilencerCo has made its presence in the industry known through its dedication to the cutting-edge technology behind the silencers it produces, its reputation for providing superb customer service to the legions of consumers who purchase them, and to the educational resources it provides both retailers and the general public regarding the science of sound suppression in firearms. SilencerCo produces a variety of high-quality silencers that accommodate shotguns, pistols, rifles and rimfire firearms.
“I think it speaks volumes that a company as young as SilencerCo has made such a mark on this industry in such a short time, and that the people behind it not only recognize just what’s at stake in the November elections, but that it takes the same dedication they’ve put into their company to make a difference at the polls and preserve our history, our industry and our individual Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms,” said Lawrence Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “We are very thankful to have this contribution to #GUNVOTE from them.”
“We intend to be a part of this industry for many years to come, but without the support of every American firearms owner at the polls in November, my business, those of my colleagues, and the ability for all of us and the American public to exercise our Second Amendment rights could disappear with the stroke of a presidential pen,” said Joshua Waldron, SilencerCo CEO. “NSSF’s #GUNVOTE campaign is the one place we believe we can make a difference in these elections, and we are proud to support it.”
NSSF’s #GUNVOTE is a voter registration and education campaign platform for use by firearms industry manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, range and media members, as well as the pro-Second Amendment consumer. #GUNVOTE—gunvote.org—provides vital information on the hundreds of pro-gun and anti-gun candidates up for election in 2016, as well links to polling places and voter registration, election news, voter education video resources and more. Industry members are strongly encouraged to download the #GUNVOTE button for their websites and social media use and order #GUNVOTE decals for distribution to family, friends and customers.
