The news has been filled with stories of big box chain stores, Wal-Mart, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and others, declaring they will no longer sell “assault-style” rifles. They have also declared they will not sell any firearm or ammunition to a person under the age of 21. If you’re between the ages of 18 and 21, you might be asking yourself how can I exercise my Second Amendment legal right to purchase a long gun? Or, if you’re a stringent supporter of the Second Amendment you may not want to support companies who don’t support the Second Amendment and are asking yourself what can I do? The answer to both questions is simple— support your local gun store.
Small Businesses: The Heartbeat of America
Small businesses, such as your local gun stores have been the heart of the American economy since the colonial days. Local gunsmiths during the American Revolution were a vital part in providing the Colonial Army firearms to be able to win independence from the British. With the second amendment under attack, it is more important than ever to support your local gun store.
U.S. & Texas LawShield is proud to be able to partner with many local gun stores across the country. These partners make up a large portion of our 2A Member Perks.
