Smith & Wesson CEO James Debney said, "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."

Executive Director of NRA-ILA Chris W. Cox said the NRA greatly appreciates Smith & Wesson's generosity and leadership in helping defend Second Amendment freedoms. "This gift will help us educate millions of Americans about the importance of protecting their constitutional rights now and in the future." The NRA Institute for Legislative Action is responsible for the NRA's legislative, legal and political efforts.
