Mississippi Designates Firearm & Ammunition Industry ‘Essential’ During COVID-19
Manufacturers, Retailers, Distributors May Continue Operating

Gov. Tate Reeves recently signed Executive Order No. 1463 in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, and as part of that order, deems certain businesses as “Essential Businesses,” allowing them to continue operations. NSSF®  is pleased to report that “firearm and ammunition manufacturers and retailers” have been included in the list of “Essential Businesses.” The Order also includes “suppliers and distributors.” See the full Executive Order here.
We thank Gov. Reeves for labeling firearm and ammunition manufacturers and retailers as an essential service, allowing local law enforcement and individuals to continue to obtain the necessary firearms, ammunition, accessories and safety-related items. During times of emergency, self-protection and protection of loved ones is vital. 
NSSF urges all members to comply with the requirements of the Executive Order, closely follow CDC guidelines, practice social distancing, and take precautions to protect the health of their employees and customers. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide further updates as they become available.
