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.

This series, which just launched this week, is probably going to be the most thorough presentation of the NRA Crisis over the last year (and what lead to it).

The NRA September Board Meeting Nutshell

At the conclusion of his speech Wayne appointed Jason Ouimet to be the new head of NRA-ILA. However, he didn’t realize the board had to vote in Jason Ouimet so with a quick correction by Cotton the board was on to a vote which essentially approve LaPierre’s will.

1 In 5 Million: A Member Attends Day 1 Of The NRA Board Meetings

Yesterday, Save The Second Board Member Rob Pincus attended the NRA Board Meeting… for about 15 minutes. Unfortunately, he was the only 1 of 5 Million NRA Members that showed up to try to learn the truth about what was going on inside the NRA Board and to lobby for Reform inside the troubled organization. Ostensibly, the NRA Board Meetings, including the committee meetings that occur the days before the main events, are open to The Members. In practice, the NRA does not encourage Members to participate, nor do they make it easy.

Dear Mrs Hammer

Now, it is reported that you have taken out illegal loans thanks to your nonprofit, Unified Sportsmen of Florida, at a super low interest so that you could buy and refinance real estate. We know that our NRA has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to your nonprofit, including $270,000 in 2018. Is this where our member dues and charitable donations are going? To help purchase and refinancing your personal real estate, Mrs Hammer?
