Lipsey’s $25,000 Donation Inspires Matching Contribution to NSSF’s Protect Liberty PAC

Davidson’s CEO Bryan Tucker: "Supporting NSSF’s Protect Liberty PAC is Vital to Ensuring our Liberties and Freedoms are Safeguarded.”

The NSSF’s Protect Liberty Political Action Committee (Protect Liberty PAC) received a significant contribution from Davidson’s, Inc., owner Bryan Tucker that will be utilized to support the election of candidates who are dedicated to preserving and protecting liberty, freedom and the constitutional rights of all Americans, especially our Second Amendment rights. Mr. Tucker’s generous personal contribution of $25,000 matches previous $25,000 donations from Lipsey’s and the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW). These donations will boost Protect Liberty PAC’s efforts ahead of the November 2024 election to ensure the election of candidates who will fight to protect our Constitutional rights – especially the Second Amendment which is under attack by the Biden Administration – and put a stop to the far left’s “woke” political agenda that threatens our liberties.

“With only five months before Election Day 2024 – and less time before voters can begin casting their ballots – the time is now for the firearm and ammunition industry and gun owners to stand strong and proud to fight for our sacred Constitutional freedoms and liberties, including the Second Amendment, that are under attack by those who wish to destroy our rights and see our industry crushed. Bryan Tucker is making a big statement by standing with us to ensure Protect Liberty PAC our industry has the resources necessary to fight back. We are extremely grateful for Mr. Tucker’s generosity and belief in Protect Liberty PAC’s mission,” said Lawrence G. Keane, Protect Liberty PAC’s Treasurer. “Protect Liberty PAC is gaining momentum at the right time as Election Day draws near. We hope more businesses in the firearm, ammunition, hunting, recreational and shooting sports industry and concerned gun owners will stand with Bryan and others who have contributed so far in supporting Protect Liberty PAC.”

“It’s easy to imagine what could happen to our industry and our livelihoods if certain elected officials were left unchecked to trample on the Second Amendment and crush the very industry that provides for its exercise by law-abiding Americans. As the owner of Davidson’s, Inc., I am happy to match the generous contributions of Lipsey’s Owner and Chairwoman Laurie Aronson and the NASGW to Protect Liberty PAC and I encourage my fellow industry members and individual gun owners to do the same at this critical time,” stated Bryan Tucker. “Supporting NSSF’s Protect Liberty PAC is vital to ensuring our liberties and freedoms are safeguarded.”
