The Road Ahead: A Statement from FPC Founder and President Brandon Combs

Firearms Policy Coalition - Thu, 07/28/2022 - 18:07

After a landmark win at the Supreme Court, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on FPC and our path forward. We are more excited than ever about the future of FPC and how we are working to focus on the most important things in this post-Bruen world.
