The firearms industry is committed to the safe, legal, and responsible ownership and use of firearms, and works on a daily basis to stop their criminal misuse. As an industry we take seriously our responsibility to be a leading voice in the national conversation, to promote responsible actions among legal gun owners, to help prevent accidents and to help keep guns out of the wrong hands. All of those actions make our homes, neighborhoods and communities safer.
We share the concerns of all Americans, and we are working toward real solutions that help create safer communities. We are proud of our history of leadership in creating real solutions. We are taking action, and the firearms industry has developed genuine solutions that protect our communities while respecting the legal rights of gun owners.
No one wants to stop the criminal and tragic misuse of our products more than we do.That’s why the firearms industry has led with initiatives to improve security at retail stores and prevent thefts, strengthen the background check system, deter illegal purchases and promote secure storage to help prevent accidents, thefts and misuse.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation® launched its REAL SOLUTIONS® initiatives to promote responsible actions among lawful gun owners, promote firearms safety and responsibility, promote proper and responsible use, storage and ownership of firearms and to reduce criminal access to and misuse of firearms and firearms accidents. The REAL SOLUTIONS. SAFER COMMUNITIES.® program was launched to educate the public about these initiatives.
