BELLEVUE, WA – Silencer Shop of Austin, Texas has joined the Second Amendment Foundation’s “Corporate Sponsorship Program” as a Gold Level supporter for 2021.

“It’s a great honor for us to have Silencer Shop’s support,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “The enthusiasm for our work from Silencer Shop CEO Dave Matheny is very gratifying, and I’m taking this opportunity to thank him publicly for his generous support. We look forward to working with him this year and in the years ahead.”

“The Second Amendment Foundation has played a critical role in protecting our firearm rights – and Silencer Shop is proud to be a partner and supporter of this effort,” Silencer Shop CEO Matheny stated.

Considering all that has happened since January, Gottlieb noted that the entire firearms community from consumers to manufacturers is facing a daunting challenge. He vowed that SAF will be continuing in its leading role as a defender of the Second Amendment through education and litigation across the nation as it has done for more than four decades.

“SAF has been in the front line trenches, fighting legal battles all over the map,” Gottlieb observed. “We’ve been able to achieve some significant legal victories, and the support we’ve received from our corporate sponsors has played a huge role in making it possible.

“We’re facing a new administration that has already announced what it calls ‘initial actions’ and battle lines are being clearly drawn,” he added. “The support we are receiving from corporate sponsors including the Silencer Shop cannot be over-stated. We are at a critical moment, and Dave Matheny and his crew are right there with us, and for that we will be forever grateful.”

SAF has been challenging restrictive gun control laws in state and federal courts for more than 40 years. The landmark 2010 Supreme Court case of McDonald v. City of Chicago that nullified Chicago’s 30-year-old handgun ban and incorporated the Second Amendment to the states via the 14th Amendment was a SAF case.
