Who are we, and what are we doing?


Save The Second is a 501(c)4 non-profit dedicated to the preservation, promotion, and expansion of the Second Amendment. We were founded by two NRA members – Anthony Garcia (President) and Ron Carter (Vice-President) who were tired of watching the NRA fall apart, and decided to do something to save it.

Our vision is to save the Second Amendment by strengthening the National Rifle Association. We hope to grow the NRA’s membership, improve its public image, and secure the NRA’s long-term ability to carry out its stated purpose of protecting our “individual rights of self-preservation and defense of family, person, and property,” as provided in Article II, Section 1 of the NRA Bylaws.

Find out more about how we plan to do that by reviewing our 5 Goals and taking a look through the rest of our site.

From Rob Pincus:

“Some people have forgotten that many of us have been fighting for changes at the NRA before the need became obvious to the majority of the gun community last spring.

Posted @withregram • Blue Alpha Gear Throwback to a year ago when we made page 3 of the Wall Street Journal by canceling our NRAAM booth reservation and donating the money to @gunpolicy along with our boothmates @cole.tac.

We're still hoping to see the NRA fix itself.”

Take the lessons learned from that Hi Point contest: share it with your friends, share it with your families, share it with your neighbors, share it with your coworkers, share it with your USPSAs, share it with your clubs, share it in your groups, share it with your YouTubers, share it in your podcasts, share it on your AR15coms, share it in your chans, share it with your meme pages, tell every single NRA member that you possibly can to contact their NRA directors. This is our opportunity to wield the power you have. We can change our NRA. 76 in 76.

You don’t save a sinking ship by standing around and crying about a hole in the hull or mentioning other boats that you FEEL are more seaworthy.

Please, use this information to politely, and responsibly, share your concerns with your NRA directors. We desperately need an NRA that is strong, effective, efficient, relevant and accountable to its members.

Calling All American Gun Owners

We must not be afraid of the truth, not matter how damaging it might be in the short term. Covering it up or ignoring it will only make it worse. As STS Board Member Rob Pincus said to the assembled voting members in Indianapolis, we need to ask these questions, get the answers and then “…deal with the fallout from that honestly and openly, so that we can get on with the business of defending our Second Amendment Rights…”

Why the Concern?

John Cushman was personally endorsed by the leadership of the NRA during many campaigns over the past several years. He was specifically chosen to run against outside Adam Kraut in the 2017 and 2018 Elections for the 76th Seat on the Board. His comments were echoed by many other members of the NRA “Old Guard” during the Members Meeting, including at least two past Presidents (Hammer and Porter).

My First Rodeo

I spoke. I mentioned the ERPO that had been ratified in Colorado and asked why the NRA did not assist. I mentioned these concerns being so dear to me that I did not want to leave Indianapolis until these issues were addressed. If going into executive session at the members meeting meant accountability for the “crisis” Oliver North spoke of, then by all means, do what it takes! I concluded my arguments by saying that “this may be my first rodeo but it won’t be the last. There must be accountability at the NRA.”

Freedom to Dissent

Will I follow your efforts blindly, slavishly, without question, just because many of the NRA’s leaders have held their positions of power for longer than I’ve been alive? No, I will not.
