Dissed By Guinness, 1000-Man Shoot Recognized By World Record Academy

posted on December 7, 2016

On Nov. 14, 1,000 pro-Second Amendment advocates gathered in Phoenix, Ariz., for the 1000-Man Shoot. Their goal was to break the record for greatest number of people to simultaneously fire two shots, and, after distributing the .22-caliber Henry Golden Boy Silver rifles and lining up the participants, the event went off seamlessly. 

Due to the organizers’ meticulous documentation, NRA and event sponsor Henry Rifles believed that Guinness would add the event to its Book of World Records. But in a shocking statement from the organization, the group claimed that since they don’t “monitor mass participation records that … increase the danger posed to the general public or environment,” the record wouldn’t be recognized. 

Luckily, however, not every record-keeping organization is biased against the safe practice of the Second Amendment. The World Record Academy, launched in 2007 as the world’s first major competitor of Guinness World Records, has added the event to its massive database of records—ensuring that both participants and sponsors would be granted their rightful place in the record books.
