Other big news from the NRA Annual Meetings 2018 held in Dallas, Texas:

On the opening day of the Meetings, Thursday, May 3, 2018 Springfield Armory released a statement saying it will severe ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods:

GENESEO, IL, (05/03/18) – Springfield Armory is severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring a group for anti-Second Amendment lobbying.

This latest action follows Dick’s Sporting Goods’ decision to remove and destroy all modern sporting rifles (MSR) from their inventory. In addition, they have denied Second Amendment rights to Americans under the age of 21. We at Springfield Armory believe that all law abiding American citizens of adult age are guaranteed this sacred right under our Constitution.

It is clear where Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, stand on the Second Amendment, and we want to be clear about our message in response. Their position runs counter to what we stand for as a company. At Springfield Armory, we believe in the right and principles fought for and secured by American patriots and our founding forefathers, without question. We will not accept Dick’s Sporting Goods’ continued attempts to deny Second Amendment freedoms to our fellow Americans.

New NRA President:

Lt. Colonel Oliver North, USMC (Ret.) was appointed the new president of the NRA by the Board of Directors after Pete Brownell stepped down from the position on the morning of Tuesday, May 8, 2018. NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre said, “This is the most exciting news for our members since Charlton Heston became President of our Association.”

Largest Attendance on Record:

This year’s meeting was the largest attendance on record. 87,154 people visited the Meetings over three days.
