“I was little … shocked at this recent report that came out about two weeks ago by the Violence Policy Center, which was basically criticizing the National Shooting Sports Foundation and criticizing me and other advocates for talking about Asian outreach in the firearms community. And the Violence Policy Center—it’s a gun control organization, right, that publishes quote unquote, studies as if …they know what they’re talking about. But what was what was shocking is, you know, they’re criticizing the gun industry for reaching out to the Asian American population, and they’re accusing me and others of leveraging fear, right, that the pandemic, has brought and scaring Asian Americans into buying guns—which is the furthest thing from the truth. And quite frankly, it’s insulting and borderline racist.” — Chris Cheng, Top Shot Season 4 champion and competitive shooter
