An NBC Sports reporter mistook profane anti-Biden chants at a NASCAR race as “Let’s Go, Brandon!”
A South Carolina firearms company is selling an AR-15 lower receiver inscribed with the slogan.
Florida- and Utah-based firearms companies are selling “Let’s Go, Brandon” magazines.
Multiple firearms companies throughout the country are manufacturing and selling AR-15 parts and magazines inscribed with the anti-Biden phrase, “Let’s Go, Brandon,” NBC News reported.
The phrase originated at Talladega Superspeedway on October 2 following NASCAR driver Brandon Brown’s first win during the league’s Xfinity Series. An NBC Sports reporter was interviewing Brown while the crowd was chanting “F-ck Joe Biden” in the stands, which she mistakenly heard as “Let’s Go, Brandon.”
Palmetto State Armory, an American firearms company that operates retail locations in South Carolina and Georgia, took inspiration from the popularized phrase and started marketing an AR-15 “LETSGO-15” lower receiver with selective fire capabilities: “‘F-CK!’ (safe), ‘JOE!’ (fire), ‘BIDEN!’ (full-auto).”
Lower receivers, which must be manufactured with serial numbers and sold by licensed firearms dealers under federal law, contain the trigger control group, hammer and firing mechanism, and mounting points for the upper receiver, according to the Department of Justice.
Several visitors to the site left comments asking if the company would be manufacturing the product for other automatic rifle platforms so that they could purchase one. One customer left a review of the lower receiver praising Palmetto State Armory for knowing the phrase that they said “more than half of America” is chanting.
Other firearms companies based in Utah and Florida – Culper Precision and My Southern Tactical – are marketing AR-15 magazines with “Let’s Go Brandon” graphics, NBC News reported. Magazines are ammunition storage and feeding devices that can be attached to a firearm.
