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.

Looks like the Brewer defense isn’t having much progress.

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....”

On Wayne LaPierre And His Removal

Suppose that LaPierre resigned today. What would happen? You see, all of the persons who condone and abet Wayne LaPierre would still remain and they are responsible for installing the next CEO/VP. The “swamp” would still remain. Suppose that I benefited financially from LaPierre’s leadership and wanted to maintain my (undisclosed to Florida regulators) $270,000 annual paycheck thanks to him, I would desperately need to install a Wayne LaPierre 2.0!

Pay No Attention To That Man Behind The Curtain

If in fact the finances of the NRA are questionable, wouldn’t the NRA President, Ms. Meadows, have an obligation to tell the board the true financial status of NRA? I think the most reasonable conclusion one could assume is that Ms Meadows does in fact have that obligation. If that is the case, then there is also the question: Is there a legal penalty for lying to the Board of Directors who have been elected by the NRA members to run the organization?

Reckless NRA Financial Practices And Sketchy Internal Loans

Was it a coup attempt by Ack-Mc to install a replacement that would continue their sweetheart deal for another couple of decades? It might turn out to be as simple as the PR Firm that had the most inside of inside tracks into what has really been going on in Fairfax realizing that the association simply wasn’t going to be able to pay them for much longer.
