Firearms as a Necessity in Newest SilencerCo “American Gun” Episode

Wednesday, September 15th, 2021

September 15, 2021 — West Valley City, UT — SilencerCo’s newly released “American Gun” episode spotlights a farmer from the small town of Ville Platte, Louisiana. In a campaign intended to prove the diversity of gun owners, “American Gun: The Farmer,” launched on September 15, 2021, reveals a unique point of view from someone who has been surrounded by firearms his entire life. 

Chase grew up working on the family farm and continues to run that same farm today. Firearms are an everyday necessity in order to maintain crops and run off pests. From overpopulating turtles that become a nuisance to raccoons that damage carefully placed crawfish traps, Chase requires a gun in order to make a living. This is a concept that many are unfamiliar with in the modern era. 

“Gun owners being portrayed in the media is kind of a weird feeling [to me] because you never saw it growing up here,” said Chase. “It’s getting to be a difficult thing being a gun owner today. We are starting to be viewed as something different than we were back then.” 

The “American Gun” series sets out to uncover different points of view surrounding firearms to contrast against what is commonly portrayed in the media. Contrary to the violence and hatred that is represented, there are a variety of important reasons why Americans exercise their second amendment right. For Chase, it was a tradition to grow up hunting, recreational shooting and controlling varmints with a firearm. 

“American Gun” videos will be released on a monthly basis and can be found on the SilencerCo YouTube and social media channels. For more information on the “American Gun” campaign, click here

SilencerCo’s Second Episode in  “American Gun” Campaign Features Custom Riflesmith

Thursday, August 12th, 2021

Campaign Demonstrates Diversity of Gun Owners Across America

August 11, 2021 — West Valley City, UT — SilencerCo released the second episode of their “American Gun” series on August 11, 2021, discussing the diversity of gun owners across America. “American Gun: The Riflesmith” features a custom riflesmith from Lousianna, Terry, whose main clientele include military and police officers. 

Vastly different from the single woman highlighted in the last American Gun episode who carries for personal protection, Terry is fueled by a passion for his craft. The contrast between these two videos illustrates the far-reaching effects of the second amendment, and how it applies to every American.

“When you put it into context of when it was written and when it was actually originated,” said Terry regarding the second amendment, “the reason that they put it in there wasn’t for deer hunting; it wasn’t for going and shooting pheasants or any of that kind of stuff; it wasn’t for recreational shooting; it was to protect ourselves from an overreaching government.” 

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), 8.4 million Americans became new gun owners during the year 2020 with an increase in sales from women and African Americans. “American Gun” sets out to uncover the many reasons behind why people own a firearm as well as highlight the diversity of the owners themselves. 

“Everything that we consider to be freedoms and liberties right now…” said Terry, “is standing firmly on the shoulders of the first and second amendment.” 

Videos will be released on a monthly basis and can be found on the SilencerCo YouTube and social media channels. For more information on the “American Gun” campaign, click here

Brownells Donates over $150,000 to Firearms Policy Foundation

Tuesday, July 20th, 2021

Brownells Donates more than $150,000 to Firearms Policy Foundation
GRINNELL, Iowa (July 20, 2021) –  Brownells donated more than $150,000 to the Firearms Policy Foundation, with money generated by the “Made in America” promotion at Brownells.com leading up to Independence Day.

The Firearms Policy Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization which helps fund the Firearms Policy Coalition, a 501(c)4 dedicated to defending the Constitution of the United States, especially the individual right to keep and bear arms.

The donation will help with the on-going struggle to restore and eventually expand constitutionally guaranteed Second Amendment rights for all Americans.

“I want to thank everyone who bought American to help save the 2nd Amendment,” said Brownells Chairman Pete Brownell.   “We all benefit from the great work of the Firearms Policy Coalition.”

“On behalf of the FPC team and our members, we are humbled and honored that Brownells and its amazing customers have so generously provided this significant funding for our critical pro-rights legal and education programs, including dozens of active lawsuits and new cases being prepared today,” said FPF Chairman and FPC President Brandon Combs. “Especially in this era where our rights are under attack at all levels, from the Biden administration to local governments like San Jose, California, every dollar counts and will go straight to the front lines in principled efforts to defend and expand individual liberty,”

The FPC has been involved in several recent high-profile Second Amendment court cases, including Miller v. Bonta which resulted in California’s ban on so-called “assault weapons” to be declared unconstitutional.

FPC also filed suit against Nevada’s recent ban on homebuilt firearms, and filed a brief in support of the right of all Americans to carry arms on their person in public.

SilencerCo’s “American Gun” Campaign Reveals Diversity of American Gun Owners

Wednesday, July 14th, 2021

July 14, 2021 — West Valley City, UT — SilencerCo is excited to launch “American Gun,” a series of videos featuring vastly different kinds of gun owners around America that will illustrate the commonality of firearms among people from all walks of life. The first video, “American Gun: The Realtor,” will be released, July 14th, 2021, with a series of videos to follow on a monthly basis. 

In the premier video, JoAnna, a single mother and real estate professional from North Carolina, tells SilencerCo why she carries concealed. As the youngest of 28 kids, she is the first entrepreneur and first girl in her family to own a gun. When a wave of rape incidents started occurring with real estate agents in her area, JoAnna decided it was time to learn how to protect herself. 

“Feeling the power that you have in your hand and what you can do with it is going to make you more of who you already are,” said JoAnna. “It’s not a weapon against someone, it’s protection for myself.”

In a time when conversations surrounding firearms are very contentious, SilencerCo has taken it upon themselves to illustrate the true story of the American gun owner. “American Gun” is an intimate look at the foundation of American Freedom, focusing on the right to bear arms and the vast diversity of people that exists among those who support the second amendment across this country. 

Each video in the American Gun series will showcase a different perspective from an individual who uses firearms in their daily lives. In order to force more authenticity and leave less room for error, SilencerCo used only film for the still shots included in this project. 

“Still photography in the modern day has become synonymous with deception, digital manipulations meant to appear grander than reality,” said Jace LeRoy, Photographer and Media Director at SilencerCo. “American Gun is all about the truthful depiction of the typical gun owner in America and capturing their images on film will give the audience a closer look into their lives in a way they are not used to seeing.”

These videos will be featured on SilencerCo’s YouTube channel and social media platforms. They are meant to be shared and re-shared, sparking an honest conversation surrounding firearms.

ASA x SOC-F Freedom Raffle

Friday, July 9th, 2021

The American Suppressor Association and Special Operations Care Fund have teamed up to present an amazing raffle featuring 10 prize packages valued at over $60,000 combined!

However, in my opinion, one item alone makes the rest of the prizes seem mundane. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a skateboard deck which was signed by every SOF Veteran who attended this year’s SOC-F Sporting Clays event.

Normally, these types of items are auctioned off for thousands of Dollars rather than included as prizes in raffles like this one. This time, you don’t have to be a rich guy with a fat roll of hundies in your pocket to take it home. The only advantage you have to win it (and the other prizes) is to buy more chances at the raffle. And even if you don’t win, you’re donating to two great nonprofit causes: helping America’s warriors and their families in times of need and preserving our civil right to own and use suppressors as part of the second amendment to the constitution.

Go check out the website for the rules and a look at all 10 prize packs.

A friend of ours sent this one in with a note:

It was a fitting morning to conduct some weapons maintenance, especially in light of the recent anti-2A rhetoric. Freedom is not free.
