Your NRA is pleased to announce that the legendary gun manufacturer, Smith & Wesson, has recently donated an amazing $1 million gift to the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA). The NRA Institute for Legislative Action, which is responsible for the NRA’s legislative, legal and political efforts, also educates Americans on the importance of their Second Amendment Freedoms and hunting heritage. So it's only natural that Smith & Wesson, one of America's iconic gun manufacturers, would support NRA-ILA in its efforts. This incredible gift was presented at the 2015 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, and is the latest in a series of gifts from Smith & Wesson to a variety of NRA entities.
Said Smith & Wesson CEO James Debney, “At Smith & Wesson we are honored to be part of an American heritage that goes back 163 years and is rooted in the fabric and the freedoms of our country. Our customers have loyally supported our products, while the NRA has loyally defended the Second Amendment. We are proud to play our part by doing all we can to support the NRA-ILA and its efforts to preserve the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms.”
“We greatly appreciate Smith & Wesson’s generosity and leadership in helping defend our Second Amendment freedoms,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA-ILA. “This gift will help us educate millions of Americans about the importance of protecting their constitutional rights now and in the future.”
