Davidson’s Inc. Owner Donates $25,000 To Protect Liberty PAC

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. 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.

“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.

Protect Liberty PAC is a federally registered “super PAC” founded in 2023 by NSSF.  Protect Liberty PAC is an independent-expenditure-only political committee and can accept unlimited personal and corporate contributions from companies in or outside of the industry, so long as they do not have federal contracts. Protect Liberty PAC will expressly advocate for the election or defeat of specific candidates and that advocacy will be completely independent of any candidate or political party.
