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."

AN ANTEDOTE FOR THE NRA’S POISONING, PART I

We need to withstand a LOT to push the fight and ensure the future of a better, stronger, and more honest NRA. Some of the things we hear are kind of bitter. Some of our heroes are showing a darker side. But if we just accept the status quo, we allow this poison to continue to slowly kill the NRA. But, if we take in the little, bitter pills, small doses at a time, we’ll emerge stronger, as will our Association.

#76IN76, HAMMER AND YOU

I am afraid that the destruction of the NRA would give us no other choice but to move on, to other organizations which fight for our second amendment rights. Loads already have, unfortunately. Nice to see Hammer try to unify those disenfranchised members, right? The destruction of the NRA is something none of us at Save the Second wish to happen. Just the opposite, Save the Second’s very creation on June 2nd, 2019 was meant to correct and strengthen our NRA.

THREATS AND INTIMIDATION FROM NRA LEADERSHIP

These issues involving threats and intimidation are running rampant there, according to sources on the inside. It has paralyzed many and kept them from acting publicly. It’s time the NRA members know this, and can act accordingly themselves.

WHY AM I WITH SAVE THE SECOND

I am totally angered and disgusted at the direction that OUR Association’s executive “leadership” has gone, and I both value and respect the too few Board Members who have stood with integrity and courage to speak out against the current LaPierre regime and their utter contempt for the call for transparency and truthfulness.

WHAT ON EARTH IS GOING ON IN THE NRA?!

The bottom line is that the NRA cannot be accountable by being unaccountable. Those that would insult us as either being “Bloomberg” or playing into the hands of Bloomberg, such as Tom King did, are sitting on the sideline with their heads in the sand while our NRA is being destroyed.
