With businesses being forced to close in different parts of the Country that are deemed ‘non-essential’ during this pandemic, many in the firearms industry have been shut down, while many others worry if they’ll be next.

Workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors, and shooting ranges.
