At Ruger, our motto is “Arms Makers for Responsible Citizens®.”
It is not just a slogan; it is genuine recognition that millions of law-abiding
citizens use our firearms safely and responsibly every day. We are mechanics,
doctors, teachers, police officers, firemen, nurses, factory workers
and every other occupation you can name. We are a vast and too-often silent
majority… and our rights are under attack.
Given the forces assembling against us, merely relying upon lobbying efforts
is insufficient. Law-abiding firearms owners must stand up and be heard.
This affects all of us, so we cannot stand idly by and rely upon others to
fight on our behalf. Too much is at stake.

More: Many elected officials have been looking for an opportunity to
curtail our gun rights and think they can win now if they move quickly while
emotions are high. In Washington D.C. and in state legislatures across the
country, anti-gun forces are gathering and conspiring in an effort to pass
bad legislation that goes beyond anything we have ever seen. At least one
legislature is discussing making public the identity of all pistol permit
holders, treatment typically reserved for convicted sex offenders.
Reality seems to be lost on these folks. Cities like Washington D.C. and
Chicago, with some of the strictest gun laws on the books, are hotbeds of
violent crime. Nationally, violent crime involving firearms has declined since the expiration of the Federal “assault weapons ban,” while
lawful ownership of firearms has increased. More lawful gun ownership, less crime.
To help your voice be heard, we have set up this special service on our website.
By clicking on the Take Action Now!
link, you can contact your legislators.
Please act now, before it’s too late.
