Fight For Your Rights: How To Advocate For The Second Amendment


Like most gun owners, you’re probably passionate about freedom, especially your Second Amendment rights. Well, what if we told you there was more you could do than just gripe about it with your buddies down at the gun range? 

You can and you probably want to. However, knowing how to get involved with the Second Amendment movement can be daunting. There’s more you can do to be involved than just cutting an annual check to the NRA. In fact, doing that is just about the least you can do to defend your Second Amendment rights. 

Some people have time and other people have money. However, regardless of which you have to spare, the first step is knowing where you can get involved. 

The Second Amendment Guarantees The Rest

The Second Amendment is the most important part of the Bill of Rights. Why? Because the Second Amendment is the one that guarantees the rest. 

Think about it: Even if you just carry for personal defense, you’re guaranteeing your right to life, liberty, and property. And, well, if you own firearms because you want to be prepared for a tyrannical crackdown on your rights… you definitely own weapons because you’re looking to secure your rights.

This often gets lost in the discussion of defending your Second Amendment rights: Why are you looking to defend your Second Amendment rights? It’s not simply for their own sake. It’s because you believe they are a fundamental cornerstone of freedom.

Constant Threats To The Second Amendment

You probably don’t need to be told that the Second Amendment is under attack. Even with the Republicans in control of the House of Representatives, the Gun Grabber in Chief is always talking about banning so-called “assault rifles,” outlawing “high capacity magazines” and looking to make universal background checks and registration the law of the land. 

One thing is certain, no matter who is in office, we have to worry about the federal and state governments coming after our most fundamental rights. This is a very visceral application of the old adage that “the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.” 

So how can you defend your most fundamental freedom?

Organizations (Other Than The NRA) Fighting For Your Rights

We’re going to assume that you already know about the NRA. We’re not disparaging them in any way, but many people feel that their money is spent somewhere else. Whether you decide to throw more money at the NRA or spread it around to some slightly more obscure organizations, you should at least know what the lay of the land is:

  • Gun Owners of America: The GOA is a slightly more hardline version of the NRA… which is probably music to your ears. They do a lot of the same kind of work as the NRA, but they have a lot stronger stance against any and all anti-gun legislation. If you like the NRA< but think they’re too moderate, the GOA is for you.
  • Firearms Policy Coalition: The FPC has much the same stance as the GOA – all firearms laws are an infringement on your Second Amendment Rights. However, their work is more centered around litigation than legislation. Best of all, when they get an injunction against a gun-grabbing ruling or law, your membership makes you part of that injunction. 
  • Second Amendment Foundation: The Second Amendment Foundation is likewise focused on litigation, but their work is a little “smaller” and “quieter.” While the FPC spends its time litigating big sexy laws like pistol braces, the SAF is much more focused on the smaller strokes of the law. If you want your money to go to less sexy, but incredibly important work, this is a good place for your time and money. 

How You Can Get Involved

It goes without saying each of these organizations is in need of money. So if you have money, they’re definitely going to put that to good use.

If you have more time than money, you should reach out and see where you can volunteer. You can also raise awareness about these lesser-known organizations among your friends, encouraging them to spend their money supporting them. Finally, all of these organizations send out action alerts, which are opportunities for you to get directly involved with whatever mass campaigns they have going on.
It’s important for every gun owner who believes in the Second Amendment to get involved in whatever capacity they’re able to. We hope that our short list gives you some kind of idea of how you want to get involved in defending America’s first freedom.

2nd Amendment

Forces of Freedom Push Back Against National Red Flag Laws


The upcoming visit of Vice President Kamala Harris to Florida isn’t just a routine affair; it’s a strategic move to promote yet another assault on our constitutional rights by the Biden administration. The so-called National Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) Resource Center, presented as a tool to prevent violence, is actually a thinly veiled attack on the Second Amendment. Let’s delve into why conservative voices and Republicans are vehemently opposing this Orwellian initiative.

A Closer Look at ERPOs: A Conservative Stand for Freedom

Under the guise of preventing harm, ERPOs grant authorities the power to strip individuals of their firearms based on vague and subjective criteria. Modeled after domestic violence protection orders, these laws trample on the rights of law-abiding citizens, eroding the very foundation of our freedoms.

Erosion of Due Process: A Fundamental Concern for Conservatives

At the heart of conservative values lies a steadfast commitment to due process and the rule of law. ERPOs flagrantly disregard these principles, allowing for the seizure of firearms based on mere allegations, often without the opportunity for the accused to defend themselves in court. This erosion of due process sets a dangerous precedent that conservatives cannot abide by.

Targeting Law-Abiding Citizens: Conservative Opposition

Despite claims of targeting individuals deemed a threat, ERPOs have the potential to be weaponized against law-abiding citizens. By exploiting vague criteria and subjective judgments, authorities can effectively disarm individuals without just cause, infringing upon their constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Conservatives recognize this blatant overreach and refuse to stand idly by as their rights are trampled upon.

A Federal Overreach: Conservative Concerns

Conservatives staunchly oppose the creation of the National ERPO Resource Center as a blatant overreach of federal authority. This centralized bureaucracy threatens to undermine the sovereignty of states and the rights of their citizens. Conservatives believe in the principles of limited government and federalism, and they refuse to allow the federal government to dictate firearm policies that should be left to the states and local communities.

Resistance from the Right: Conservative Leaders Speak Out

Republican leaders have been at the forefront of the opposition to this Orwellian initiative. Voices like Reps. Thomas Massie and Marjorie Taylor Greene have sounded the alarm, urging Americans to resist this assault on their freedoms. Conservatives across the country are uniting to defend the Second Amendment and push back against the Biden administration’s agenda.

Conservatives understand that the true path to safety lies not in surrendering our rights but in upholding the principles of liberty and justice for all. The Biden administration’s relentless pursuit of gun control measures is an affront to these principles, and conservatives will continue to stand united against any encroachment on our freedoms. It’s time to reaffirm our commitment to the Constitution and reject any attempts to erode our Second Amendment rights.

Federal Judge Rules Second Amendment Protects Gun Rights of Illegals


In a groundbreaking decision, U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman of Illinois has ruled that the Constitution extends Second Amendment protections to illegal aliens who enter the United States illegally. The ruling comes in response to a case involving defendant Heriberto Carbajal-Flores, challenging a federal prohibition on illegal aliens owning firearms.

Constitutional Protection for Second Amendment Rights

Judge Coleman’s ruling, delivered on Friday, asserts that while there exists a federal ban on illegal immigrants possessing firearms, this prohibition is unconstitutional as applied to Carbajal-Flores. Despite the federal law being deemed “facially constitutional,” the court found that there is no historical basis for firearm regulation that justifies denying Second Amendment rights to noncitizens who have not been convicted of violent crimes.

Judge Coleman stated that the statute violates the Second Amendment. Consequently, the court granted Carbajal-Flores’ motion to dismiss the charges against him.

Legal Precedent and Constitutional Interpretation

In reaching her decision, Judge Coleman referenced the landmark Supreme Court ruling on Second Amendment rights, emphasizing the absence of a historical tradition allowing the government to deprive noncitizens of their constitutional right to bear arms. This interpretation underscores the fundamental principle that the Second Amendment applies not only to citizens but also to noncitizens residing within the United States.

Implications and Future Proceedings

The ruling by Judge Coleman carries significant implications for the legal landscape surrounding gun rights and immigration. By affirming that the Second Amendment protects the rights of non-citizens, the decision challenges existing federal laws and sets a precedent for future cases involving similar circumstances.

Moving forward, the decision is likely to spark debates and legal challenges regarding the intersection of immigration status and constitutional rights. As the case progresses, it will be closely monitored by legal experts, advocacy groups, and policymakers alike, shaping the ongoing discourse on gun rights and immigration policies in the United States.


Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman’s ruling represents a significant development in the ongoing debate over Second Amendment rights and immigration laws. By affirming that noncitizens, including those who enter the country illegally, are entitled to constitutional protections, the decision highlights the importance of upholding fundamental rights regardless of citizenship status. As the legal proceedings continue, the implications of this ruling will reverberate throughout the legal and political spheres, shaping future policies and interpretations concerning gun rights and immigration in the United States.

South Carolina Embraces Permitless Carry: Strengthening Second Amendment Rights


In a resounding affirmation of Second Amendment principles, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster has signed permitless carry into law, making it the second Republican-led state in as many days to adopt constitutional carry gun laws.

Governor McMaster’s Stance on Permitless Carry

Governor McMaster hailed the new legislation as a crucial step towards enhancing public safety and ensuring that law enforcement agencies possess the necessary tools to combat illegal gun use and possession by criminals. Speaking on the significance of the law, Governor McMaster emphasized its role in enabling law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges to keep career violent offenders behind bars, thereby safeguarding innocent South Carolinians from harm.

The NRA-Backed Bill: Key Provisions


Backed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), the permitless carry bill allows eligible citizens aged 18 and older to carry a firearm in public without the need to obtain approval and a permit from the government. This legislation represents a significant departure from the previous regulatory framework, which required individuals to undergo a permitting process before carrying a firearm in public spaces.

Bolstering Public Safety

Proponents of permitless carry argue that it enhances public safety by empowering law-abiding citizens to exercise their inherent right to self-defense without bureaucratic impediments. By removing the requirement for a government-issued permit, permitless carry ensures that individuals can protect themselves and their loved ones promptly in critical situations.

Legislative Approval and Support


The bill garnered substantial support in both chambers of the South Carolina legislature, with the state Senate passing the legislation in a 28-18 vote and the state House approving it with a vote of 86-33. This bipartisan support underscores the broad consensus among lawmakers regarding the importance of upholding Second Amendment rights and promoting individual freedoms.

Addressing Concerns and Misconceptions

Critics of permitless carry have raised concerns regarding potential risks associated with expanded firearm access. However, proponents assert that responsible firearm ownership, coupled with stringent penalties for criminal misuse, mitigates these concerns and promotes a safer environment for all citizens.

South Carolina’s embrace of permitless carry represents a significant victory for proponents of Second Amendment rights and individual liberties. By enacting legislation that empowers law-abiding citizens to exercise their inherent right to bear arms, South Carolina reinforces its commitment to upholding the principles enshrined in the United States Constitution. As the national discourse on gun laws continues to evolve, the passage of permitless carry in South Carolina serves as a beacon of hope for those who champion individual freedoms and the preservation of constitutional rights.
