Save the Second is a coalition of Second Amendment supporters working to strengthen the National Rifle Association from the inside. We are NRA members, prospective members, and former members with grave concerns about the recent reports of gross mismanagement and the slow response from NRA leadership. In order to remain relevant, effective, and strong, the NRA needs drastic reforms. Given the leadership’s apparent aversion to change, the rank-and-file members must speak up and be heard to keep the NRA from fading into obscurity. We will do whatever it takes to Save the Second Amendment by saving the NRA from itself. 

The Five Goals

Let's fix it.

There are hundreds if not thousands of ideas being advanced for how best to help the NRA weather its current storms. Many of those ideas have lots of merit, but we’ve decided to focus our attention on five specific goals for the near term. We think these five goals are the most realistic and have the best chance of furthering our mission and vision.  Click the links below to learn more.


Smaller Board

Our Board of Directors should be lean, efficient, and focused on quality over quantity.


Term Limits

Fresh perspectives and new ideas are just as important as seniority and tenure.



No more service in absentia. We want our elected leaders to show up and govern.


Member Engagement

We encourage members to get involved, cast informed votes, and hold their elected leaders accountable.


Exclusive 2A Focus

The NRA’s focus should be gun-related education, recreation, and advocacy. Let’s get back on track.

Don't let the NRA fade into obscurity.

If the NRA is to endure, its members must take action, now. We can't afford to idle while the leadership insists that everything is okay. The NRA clearly faces serious challenges, including many of its own making. Together, we can breathe new life into the National Rifle Association and save the Second Amendment.
