We at Browning are believers in the rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America. And we believe that the Second Amendment to the Constitution has special importance to us, to you our customers and to all freedom loving Americans. The framers of the constitution were wise and far-sighted men who laid down a plan that would protect America and its citizens through the ages ahead. A dear price had been paid to assure unprecedented freedom for the citizens of the United States of America. Today, these rights -- guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution -- are under attack like never before in history.

Coordinating closely with the NSSF and in cooperation with the NRA, Browning is working on many levels to promote the guaranteed rights of Americans. Since the days of our founder, John Moses Browning, we have been a key provider of firearms and firearms related products for Americans to be used for sporting, hunting and self protection, and to ensure the cause of freedom around the world. 

Browning and its employees are working hard at many levels to help preserve our rights. As a voting board member of the NSSF, Browning is deeply involved -- along with a coalition of major NSSF member companies -- in efforts with the congress, states and elected officials on virtually every front to turn the anti-gun tide. Our cooperation with members of the NSSF is on a nearly a constant basis, coordinating our efforts on many fronts. We are bound together with other NSSF members in a common goal and with specific, unified efforts.

Most importantly, we appreciate the efforts of you and countless other Browning customers engaged in the cause. We encourage all those who love the Browning brand and believe in the cause to stand fast, and to support us in our efforts.

What can you do? Call or write your legislators right now! Click the link above to go to the NSSF tools for contacting those elected officials who are making the decisions. Make sure your voice is heard by those who are bound to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America." Many other efforts are underway by other firearms-related companies. We encourage you to support industry efforts as you see fit.

Ultimately this fight will not be won by corporations but by individuals like you all across America. If you haven't already, join the NRA. Get involved now.

Make your voice heard.
Make it heard effectively.
Make a difference.



 Make Your Voice Heard through NSSF Legislative Action Center

NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Through its online Legislative Action Center, the National Shooting Sports Foundation offers a convenient way for supporters of the Second Amendment to urge their legislators to oppose severely restrictive firearms bills that have been introduced in the U.S. Congress and in many states.

NSSF's Legislative Action Centeris the industry's one-stop hub for finding contact information for federal and state legislators, learning about newly introduced firearms legislation and taking action--sending a letter or making a phone call to lawmakers. Visitors can use both the Research State and Federal Legislationand Industry-Relevant Federal Legislationtools for tracking alarming efforts to restrict ownership and use of semiautomatic rifles and ammunition.

Restrictive gun-control legislation has been introduced throughout the country, including in the U.S. Congress and in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota and New Jersey. Other states are expected to follow suit. New York has already hastily passed new anti-gun laws, the severe impacts of which are only just being realized. In response, firearms owners are turning out by the thousands at state hearings, but just as important is letting legislators know by letter or phone call that these proposed bills are misguided, unwarranted and an assault on Second Amendment rights.

NSSF's Legislative Action Center provides a core letter, which can be expanded and personalized, that urges legislators to not waste time and public resources on reinstating failed gun-control measures, such as the so-called "assault weapons ban." For a decade, the ban restricted the sale of semiautomatic rifles and limited magazine capacity to 10 rounds, but according to a U.S. Department of Justice study, the ban did not reduce crime. And since the ban expired in 2004, violent crime has declined.

Legislators are urged to focus instead on effective solutions that will reduce the criminal misuse of firearms by enforcing existing gun laws, improving the background check database and preventing access to firearms by unauthorized persons, including children, at-risk individuals and prohibited persons.

Use the NSSF Legislative Action Center to call or write your federal and state legislators today and urge them to protect your right to own and use the firearms of your choice for target shooting, hunting, personal and home protection and collecting.
