1 Gun Manufacturer PUNCHES Back At Anti-2A Politicians

Anti-2A politicians desperately want to push the narrative that the problem with gun violence is anything else but their failed policies. Their favorite targets, of course, are the guns themselves, legal gun owners, and gun manufacturers. Never mind what the facts really say.

Now, though, one major firearms manufacturer has clearly had enough, and they issued a statement which takes to task the absolute nonsense that anti-2A politicians keep pushing.

That manufacturer is Smith & Wesson, and the following is from their press release:

Amid an unprecedented and unjustified attack on the firearm industry, Smith & Wesson Brands, Inc.
President & CEO Mark Smith responded Monday with the following statement:

“A number of politicians and their lobbying partners in the media have recently sought to disparage Smith &
Wesson. Some have had the audacity to suggest that after they have vilified, undermined and defunded law
enforcement for years, supported prosecutors who refuse to hold criminals accountable for their actions,
overseen the decay of our country’s mental health infrastructure, and generally promoted a culture of
lawlessness, Smith & Wesson and other firearm manufacturers are somehow responsible for the crime
wave that has predictably resulted from these destructive policies. But they are the ones to blame for the
surge in violence and lawlessness, and they seek to avoid any responsibility for the crisis of violence they
have created by attempting to shift the blame to Smith & Wesson, other firearm manufacturers and lawabiding gun owners.

It is no surprise that the cities suffering most from violent crime are the very same cities that have promoted
irresponsible, soft-on-crime policies that often treat criminals as victims and victims as criminals. Many of
these same cities also maintain the strictest gun laws in the nation. But rather than confront the failure of
their policies, certain politicians have sought more laws restricting the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding
citizens, while simultaneously continuing to undermine our institutions of law and order. And to suppress the
truth, some now seek to prohibit firearm manufacturers and supporters of the 2nd Amendment from
advertising products in a manner designed to remind law-abiding citizens that they have a Constitutional
right to bear arms in defense of themselves and their families.

To be clear, a Smith & Wesson firearm has never broken into a home; a Smith & Wesson firearm has never
assaulted a woman out for a late-night run in the city; a Smith & Wesson firearm has never carjacked an
unsuspecting driver stopped at a traffic light.

Instead, Smith & Wesson provides these citizens with the means to protect themselves and their families.

Smith just nailed it with this statement. Guns, gun manufacturers, and legal firearms owners are not the problem and are not the causes of gun violence in America. And the fact that gun violence is highest where gun control is strictest in America makes that abundantly clear.

You and I know that, and it’s good to see a member of the firearms community (and not just gun owners) taking a stand for the truth.

  1. Good for S&W the ccp will not like your post. Hunter was paid a lot from them. Look out for more to come your way. I would like to add >> I have had S&W in the past and believe it or not a one of them ever Shot anybody.

    • I have owned many S&W’s and now I am happy that did.Its about time the Gun Manufacturers stand up to the anti-gunner.I wholeheartedly agree with what the CEO of Smith Wesson had to say and im so glad he set them straight where the problem really lies.

  2. Right on Smith and Wesson! You are 100% correct with each and every sentence in this statement! When will the Court System simply enforce the laws already on the books?

  3. That’s pretty plain and simple,for a simple mind, to understand. We will never give up our only defense, to the criminals running lose, and terrorizing the common folk,american citizen.

  4. Thank you Smith and Wesson. I search the courts every day for criminal cases, and I have never heard of one single gun pulling its own trigger. I agree with the statement that when guns are outlawed, I will become an outlaw. My 2nd amendment rights give me the right to own and possess a firearm legally and I intend to do so. Thanks again S&W.

  5. So right. A gun has never been able to commit a crime. This was a well written article nailing blame where it should be and emphasizing the legal and Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Thank you S & W!

    • This is why I hate the fact that even pro 2nd people and publications keep using the term “gun violence”. The correct term is “violence with a gun” or “violent criminal with a gun”.Every time I see or hear the “gun violence” term I correct the idiots that use it.
      Over the years I have had a number of guns, none of them has EVER attacked anyone.

  6. Finally!!! The Americans finally pushing back on these commies…If we don’t stand up to be counted and heard, we will lose everything. Was president trump perfect??? No, but he stood up for the citizens unashamedly and fought pretty much a one man war against every vile group of liars. Be fearless and support the constitution and those willing to defend it…

  7. The problem is there are NO INTELLIGENT COMMON SENSE PEOPLE INTHE RAT PARTY NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF RADICAL CHILD MOLESTERS THINK THEIR SO SMART WHEN TRUTH BE KNOWN THEIR TRULY JUST RADICAL IDIOTS THAT DONT HAVE A CLUE ABOUT GUNS TO BEGIN WITH IF YOU DONT KNOW SHUT UP

  8. Just know this . If we are pushed into a corner (and I think we are almost there ) you are in for a huge fight .

    • You are so right Gary. None of the S&W’s I own had ever pulled it’s own trigger. And when the government comes after us I will be like a Wolverine; I am not giving up my guns.

    • Yes Sir , Very Well Said ‼️‼️‼️
      That’s What I’m Talking About ‼️
      Good Job Smith & Wesson, and I own
      a FEW ‼️‼️

  10. I’ve sent many emails to Tillis, our senator in NC, that a bill be sponsored calling for a nation wide program of billboards stating this: “Get Armed and Trained – You are Your First Responder … Keep and Bear!”

  11. I have owned many S&W in the last 50 some years starting with a model 25 (45 LC) Al through my years in VN they never failed me then and today they have done same I would like to see other firearm’s company do the same

  12. I have owned guns for years my favorite pistol is the S&W 357 magnum revolver, patrolman special. Some friends of my wife were at my house for dinner and he asked me if I owned guns? When I said yes multiple ones, his wife just had a fit saying how guns kill! I took a pistol and set it on my table and told her now lets see if it jumps up and shoots someone? It never did and I think she was disappointed.

  13. IF laws truly COULD make a felon NOT carry a firearm (or ANY weapon) in committing a crime, then does it not follow that there would be NO armed felonies? A PLETHORA of laws “regulating firearms” also doesn’t seem to cause much reduction of these crimes! There are only two ways legislators can help:
    1. Make ‘using a firearm (or, again ANY weapon!) in commission of a felony or assault have a DEATH sentence! This might not stop these crimes entirely, but at least there would then be fewer criminals doing so!
    2. Repeal all the onerous laws which contravene the 2nd Amendment, and allow all non-felon citizens to carry whatever weapon they wish, AGAIN with the stipulation of using, even BRANDISHING, a weapon having grave consequences! (This latter is probably ALREADY some law!)

    Tell me if I have made an incorrect statement!

    • I would like to add something.
      Change the laws so that a person protecting life and property has the right to use deadly force against the criminal.
      No one should have their weapons confisticated for protecting their property like the one couple did or be charged for self defense.
      Considering the news, it appears that the laws against felons carrying guns don’t work worth a damn, why bother eith them?

  14. I write about what’s really happening and you walk around it.
    Communism is coming and can only be stopped with guns. For the gun grabbers are the filth and stench and liars.
