As Americans prepare their wallets to hunt for the best shopping deals by national retailers on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it's important to remember the little guys. Small Business Saturday, recognized between the two massive shopping "holidays" on Saturday November 28, encourages us to not forget about the small, local businesses run by members of our communities and the great services the provide.
For Second Amendment supporters, gun stores and shooting ranges are two types of small businesses that we definitely don't want to see disappear. With more than 50,000 firearm retailers and over 25,000 shooting ranges in the United States, these industries area a significant presence among our country's small businesses.
That's why it's important to get out and show your support not just year-round, but especially this Small Business Saturday for the national attention it brings.
Need help finding gun stores and ranges near you? The NRA Business Alliance is a great way to discover gun stores and other amazing small businesses who support the NRA in your area and Find NRA Near You is an excellent resource to find local shooting ranges and other NRA programs.
These businesses are vital to continuing out country's rich shooting heritage and letting us enjoy our Second Amendment rights and we can all do our part to show appreciation this Small Business Saturday between shopping for our new TVs, clothes, and the latest gadgets.
