Blog: The “Industry Lobby” Fallacy
by: Sam Lichtman
In the ongoing culture war over the right to keep and bear arms, we often hear accusations of astroturfing and complaints over the pervasive power of lobbyists in Washington. Using insults and slander to deflect legitimate criticism, anti-gunners like to accuse activists on our side of being bought and paid for by the firearm industry itself. We often hear cries that the industry is inherently evil, placing profits over safety, and that anyone advocating for the Second Amendment must therefore be a heartless monster motivated by greed. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.
Everyone likes an underdog, so it’s only natural that members of the civilian disarmament complex would want to portray themselves as scrappy underdogs. It’s a hilarious irony that a group of people whose acknowledged goal is to restrict other people’s rights feels themselves to be freedom fighters rising up against the tyranny of… freedom-loving civil libertarians who just want to be left alone? Yeah right. A big part of their messaging is the “industry lobby” fallacy, a theory which suggests that pro-2A politicians and the hated NRA are all in the pocket of the firearm industry, which supposedly benefits from sales driven by mass paranoia. To support this theory, anti-gunners point to waves of panic buying during periods of civil unrest and political uncertainty and accuse the pro-2A side of wanting to stoke more of the same just to make more money. What makes the “industry lobby” theory fallacious is that not only is it easily disprovable, but that even if it were true, it would still make no sense. In other words, it’s false in multiple independent ways.

Do you love firearms and sharing your knowledge with other ladies? Have you wanted to volunteer more but are not sure where to go? NotMeCA is currently looking for additional ladies to volunteer their time and continue helping other women who come to us looking for help with their firearms journey.
Join NotMeCA Program Director Desi Bergman and learn what the role of an Ambassador consists of and how you can help. Hear from current Ambassadors and why they volunteer their time for NotMeCA.
The #NotMeIE program is a mentor/mentee referral service run by women for women to help them:
Obtain firearms training
Get assistance in choosing and purchasing a firearm
Obtain a CCW
How does the program work?
A potential client can fill out the application for service on our website. Once received, the project manager reviews the application and assigns the client to an Ambassador. An Ambassador then contacts the client to begin the process of walking them through whatever their firearm needs are. After the client has been successfully helped, their case is closed, and the Ambassador is given a new client to work with. Some of our Ambassadors are also NRA certified trainers. They are very knowledgeable in all aspects of firearms training and purchasing. IEGO also offers an online CCW seminar once a month. Check the IEGO website for upcoming dates. If you are an experienced gun owner and are interested in becoming an Ambassador for the #NotMeIE program please reach out to Karla at firstname.lastname@example.org
