NSSF's GUNVOTE Initiative
In the 2010 congressional election, some 46.2 percent of women and 45 percent of men 18 and over reported voting, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Gun owners tend to be more active at the polls than this average, but the point is there is a lot of room for improvement. "More gun owners need to vote," said NSSF President Steve Sanetti. "It's critical that they do, and that they consider closely what candidates are saying, or not saying, about our firearms freedoms."
Voting in each year's elections is a process that begins by making sure to register, then becoming educated about the candidates running for office and discussing choices with family and friends so that they understand the importance of voting to protect America's firearms freedoms. The final step, of course, is going to the polls.Next election, get out and #gunvote.
