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.

“What’s changed is that our worst fear is confirmed,” Brewer said Monday. “That privileged materials are in the hands of people with whom the NRA is adverse, who are likely to turn them over to the attorney general, pursuant to a process that looks to us as if it was a gateway to obtain privileged communications—privileges that are owned by the NRA.”

Marion Hammer is at it again. Defending LaPierre as if he were a deity.

Informed Response to Jaundiced Opinion RE: 'Uncertain Future Lies Ahead for NRA'
Let me be clear. I write this not to urge or convince you to sing Wayne LaPierre's praises -- although you should. Or, to discourage anyone from applying for his job.

The NRA does not have a succession plan for CEO Wayne LaPierre. This is poor planning. It results from WLP's paranoia and the Board of Directors' inaction.

A fantastic article written a few days ago by Jeff Knox.

What we really need is a challenger for WLP. Someone who can rally the members and directors and defeat him for the good of the association.

What do you think? Who do you think could do it?

"These figures, not previously reported, are the first time that LaPierre has put a figure to how much the ongoing legal battles have cost the organization. For context, the NRA and its affiliates raised more than $412 million and spent more than $423 million in 2018, the last year for which there is public reporting."

#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.
