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."

Breaking: A Fifth NRA Director Has Resigned

Mrs Golob’s resignation marks the fifth director to have resigned since May 30th, 2019. While board resignations are unprecedented in the organizations history, this is not the first time that directors have been removed. It was the first time that the NRA Institute for Legislative Action chief was suspended and later resigned. Since the myriad of lawsuits, investigations and allegations against the NRA and it’s CEO/VP have come to a head following the NRA Annual Meeting in April, all of the faces of the organization have changed dramatically, with the exception of CEO/VP Wayne LaPierre and his devote followers.

Real Answers To Direct Questions: Behind The Scenes Of A CBS Evening News Q&A

Adam Kraut Declines Seat On The NRA Board Of Directors… Here’s WHY

Further, I am not willing to put the NRA into a position where my new position and role in our community could even potentially create a conflict, or even a bad optical light that could be leveraged against it by the media and its enemies. Thus, I cannot in good conscience accept a position as an NRA director.

On Sheep In Sheepdog Clothing

Marion Hammer would not have the audacity to judge others, given that her attendance at Board meetings has been abysmal over the past 8 years, without the security of her “Hammertime for the 2A Haters” persona…and her hefty multi-year six figure compensation package that was just renewed.
