15 Ways To Fight For Our Second Amendment Rights
15 Ways To Fight For Our Second Amendment Rights
By Chris Chumita
The fight to keep our Second Amendment rights has had some impressive victories lately. In the past few years, we have seen more states begin to allow citizens to carry concealed firearms, the repeal of the “Clinton Assault Rifle Ban,” and the recent passage of the “Lawful Commerce In Arms Act.”
Despite these victories, now is not the time for us to become complacent about our Second Amendment rights. In fact, it is under attack in ways that we have only feared. For example, we have seen the passage of an “Assault Rifle Ban” in Columbus, Ohio, a voter approved gun ban in San Francisco, and the confiscation of firearms from law abiding citizens during a natural disaster in Louisiana.
Now, more than ever, we have to fight to protect out Second Amendment rights. Below are 15 easy things that you can do to help. You do not have to do all 15 to join the fight, but if everyone could just do one of them, it would help gun owners everywhere.

During the past year I've done 9 of the 15. I need to join more organizations, other than the NRA.

I can afford to support five of those and I do but I still don't understand why I have to pay for my SA rights... The SA is a right not a pay as you go plan.
