Brownells, Inc. has a strong and well-established presence worldwide, and this could help the new President of the National Rifle Association of America to better understand the challenges that freedom-loving gun owners are facing worldwide.

Observers and gun rights supporters worldwide acknowledge that, should gun rights be destroyed everywhere else in the world, the United States would be under siege and the defense of Second Amendment rights would become desperate.

While by statute the National Rifle Association can not intervene on any matters outside the United States, many hope that the NRA may want to partially change this course by forming partnerships with gun rights advocacy groups in other Countries in order to form a common front that could help counter the onslaught that anti-gun groups, organized on an international level, are carrying on against gun rights all through the world in a well-coordinated manned.

At the end of April, a delegation of Firearms United was invited to visit the 2017 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Atlanta, enjoying VIP status, thanks to the auspices of NRA Board member Timothy Knight.
