Rock Island Auction Company will serve as the official auction house for the Firearms For Freedom program of the National Rifle Association of America (NRA). Under the NRA Firearms For Freedom program, donated guns are auctioned off for the benefit of the National Rifle Association of America, a 501 (c)(4) non-profit, and its four 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit affiliates: The NRA Foundation, The NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund, The NRA Special Contribution Fund (NRA Whittington Center) and the Freedom Action Foundation Fund.
Whether the donations are big or small, they are used to support Second Amendment liberties through these agencies. “We are proud the NRA recognizes our track record in offering collector firearms to the marketplace,” RIAC President Kevin Hogan said. “We handle significant collections and small consignments, treating them with equal respect. I know we will do the same with the NRA Firearms For Freedom donations.”
Firearms donated to the NRA Firearms For Freedom will be a regular feature in RIAC’s approximately 18 annual auctions. Rock Island Auction Company reported $121 million in auction sales in 2021, the highest annual sales in the company’s history, so is well-positioned to support and augment NRA Firearms For Freedom as the program’s official auction partner.
