Press Releases from National Association for Gun Rights

Washington D.C. – Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights responded to the gun control legislation introduced by Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Chris Murphy (D-CT).

“The surrender-monkey Republicans are not only caving to anti-gun Democrats, but working hand-in-hand with them. This bill introduced by Senators Cornyn and Murphy aims to establish a gun control super-database – expanding the Brady-NICS gun owner registry, denying even more Americans of their due process rights.

Washington D.C. – The National Association for Gun Rights is urging members of Congress to withhold their signatures from an anti-gun letter that is currently being circulated by Congressman Adam Kinzinger and Senator Dean Heller -- in concert with the NRA -- that calls for banning “bump stocks.”

 

The proposal outlined in the letter will not prevent future crimes or mass shootings, and will only lead to more federal destruction of constitutional rights.

Washington D.C. – The National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) today said it will oppose Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s bill to ban "bump stocks."

 

"We’re very concerned with the move to start more federal regulations on accessories, which would have serious repercussions throughout the rest of federal gun law," said NAGR President Dudley Brown. "The whole accessory ban argument is a red herring to get politicians -- especially weak-kneed Republicans -- to agree to ban something, anything and then see how much the anti-gunners can get.

Washington D.C. – Late last week, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Representative Steve King (R-IA) introduced companion bills to remove suppressors, or “silencers,” from federal regulation. The Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act of 2017 (SHUSH Act), introduced as S. 1505 and H.R. 3139, further deregulates suppressors by completely removing them from all federal regulation – going further than the Hearing Protection Act.

“Sen. Lee and Rep. King are champions for gun rights, and their joint legislation displays their dedication to restoring the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding Americans,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Most in Congress who support silencer freedom want full deregulation, and that’s exactly what Lee and King are doing with S. 1505 and H.R. 3139.”
