AUSTIN, TX (July 1, 2021) – Today, the Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced that Austin, Texas-based Silencer Shop®, the industry’s largest suppressor distributor, has joined FPC’s Constitution Alliance family as a Benefactor Member in support of FPC’s legal action and advocacy programs to defend and advance the right to keep and bear arms.
Through its contributions, Silencer Shop is supporting pro-rights legal action, advocacy, grassroots engagement, and educational initiatives across the nation, including FPC Law– the nation’s first and only full-scope public interest legal team focused exclusively on the right to keep and bear arms and adjacent rights.
“It’s more important than ever to stand with like-minded companies who are in support of our nation’s gun rights. The Firearms Policy Coalition is actively protecting and fighting for our constitutional liberties, and we are proud to be an advocate and supporter of FPC’s initiatives,” explained Dave Matheny, Silencer Shop Founder & CEO.
“We are honored that Silencer Shop, an incredibly innovative and consumer-driven member of our community, would step up to generously support our programs, allowing us to do more for the People and cause of liberty we serve,” said FPC President Brandon Combs. “On behalf of everyone at FPC, our members, and the People we fight for, I thank Dave Matheny and the extraordinary Silencer Shop team for their generosity and support of our work to defend and advance human liberty. FPC will proudly continue to Fight Forward for the People, liberty, and freedom.”
FPC Constitution Alliance Benefactor Members’ support and contributions are already making an impact. FPC recently announced that Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed the FPC-supported H.B. 1927 into law, enacting “constitutional carry” in the Lone Star State. FPC Law also recently made history by its challenge to California’s ban on so-called “assault weapons” (Miller v. Bonta) that resulted in a post-trial judgment and permanent injunction against the challenged regulations, the first such victory in United States history. And FPC is also preparing extensive briefing in a right-to-carry case at the Supreme Court, among many other efforts.
Organizations and industry partners who wish to learn more about becoming an FPC Constitution Alliance member are encouraged to contact Pierce Shields, FPC’s National Director of Advancement, at [email protected].
