JAN-28-2020 – The 2020 NRA Board of Directors Voting Guide and Recommendations are here!

Read all about them, and find a link to the in depth (over two hours!) discussion regarding all candidates here.

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.

With the results of the election in, the question of voting tabulation comes to mind. How is it that a man, Frank Tait, received many bullet votes yet came in last? So peculiar to me. We'll be discussing that on the podcast soon.

So many new gun owners are joining the fold and will be looking for a strong national organization to defend their natural rights.

We must show up to the member's meeting in September to help make sure the National Rifle Association is up to the task.

If you want to have a chance of saving this organization then you need to be at the members meeting in September.

Looks like we will finally know the results of the 2020 NRA BoD election just after Independence Day as they resumed counting ballots (or were supposed to) today.

“Dear NRA Board members, Executive Council members, and Board candidates:

As you know, tabulation of the NRA’s mail ballot election results has been significantly delayed due to business closures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. During that time, we’ve been in touch with our vendors regularly about the status of our count, and about the measures they’ve put in place to protect the integrity of our process.

Today, I’m pleased to announce that ballot processing will resume on Monday, June 22. Barring any further unforeseen circumstances, we expect to be able to share the results with candidates and the board on approximately July 10.

As always, the formal announcement pursuant to the Bylaws will take place at the Annual Meeting of Members in Springfield, Missouri on September 5. Newly elected members will begin their terms upon the adjournment of the Members’ Meeting, and will be sworn in at the Board meeting that same afternoon.

We appreciate your patience, and look forward to sharing the results in a few weeks.


John Frazer
Secretary and General Counsel
National Rifle Association of America....”

#76in76 Round Two Update

Today we are on day twelve of our campaign designed to give you the tools to contact all of your NRA Board of Directors. In these past twelve days, we've seen some big news. First, the internal strife has produced yet another director, Dan Boren, to resign. Yesterday we found out that over $2 million dollars were spent on off-the-books travel for Wayne LaPierre (and there's some very shady things associated with that).

Someone is Lying and it Doesn’t Matter

At this point, it doesn’t matter anymore. As members of the NRA who desperately want to see the NRA strong, relevant, effective and accountable this can only mean that our NRA leadership was at best derelict in its duty. At worst they are terribly corrupt.
