Brownells Launches National Day to Celebrate 2nd Amendment

GRINNELL, Iowa - Brownells invites liberty-minded people across America to Celebrate. Advocate. Join™. in the freedoms guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights during the Inaugural National 2nd Amendment Day presented by Brownells on 2-22-2022.

“The spirit of this event is to designate a day that we, as a nation, recognize, celebrate and do our part to secure one of the most important rights guaranteed by our Constitution – the right to keep and bear arms,” said Pete Brownell, Chairman of the Board. “Many states celebrate the 2nd Amendment independently, and that’s a great thing. This event, which we hope continues to grow in size, scale and scope, is aimed at bringing all freedom-loving Americans together on one day – 2/22 – this year and every year going forward to show support for our beloved 2nd Amendment.”


On 2-22-2022, Brownells will celebrate the Second Amendment by partnering with select gun ranges – both in Iowa and across the country – to host National 2nd Amendment Day range sessions. The range sessions will include Brownells-paid range time and food for those who sign up and wish to attend.

To find a participating range, visit the Inaugural National 2nd Amendment Day website and RSVP to guarantee a range slot.

Brownells encourages 2A supporters unable to attend a participating range to shoot at a range near them, or work on building a gun at home, and post photos of their own 2A celebrations on social media with the hashtag #2ADay to show their support.

To help celebrate the 2nd Amendment, Brownells is providing an opportunity for its employees to shoot at its Iowa range location.


Brownells encourages all gun owners to advocate for the 2nd Amendment by contacting their state and federal lawmakers to weigh in on their support for gun rights. The National 2nd Amendment Day webpage will include tips on how to go about contacting legislators and how to most effectively communicate with them.

To do its part, Brownells will welcome its state and federal legislators to participate in shooting at its Iowa range location.


The third element of the Inaugural National 2nd Amendment Day is a calling on gun owners to join a national and/or state-level gun rights organization. Brownells will promote Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC), Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), and the American Suppressor Association (ASA) on its website. Brownells will also feature a clickable map of the United States visitors can use to find a state-level organization to join.

In the spirit of joining, Brownells will purchase FPC memberships for its employees, and donate $22,222 each to FPC, SAF, the ASA, and the Iowa Firearms Coalition.
