From the Second Amendment Foundation . . .
The Second Amendment Foundation has launched a nationwide outreach effort to remind America’s gun owners that “Gun Rights Depend On You,” while urging them to “Demand the Courts Protect the 2A.”
The message is already appearing online at the Washington Times, Breitbart, TownHall, Newsmax, BearingArms and Drudge, according to SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb.
“This campaign will reach more than 8.3 million people,” Gottlieb estimated. “It would be a significant step forward in our ongoing outreach effort to educate gun owners that the defense of their constitutional right to keep and bear arms ultimately rests in their hands.
“The campaign urges people to support the Second Amendment Foundation’s case currently in front of the Supreme Court to overturn Maryland’s ban on many semi-automatic firearms,” he said. “This case would also impact many bans on firearms in other states as well.
“Right now,” he continued, “we have more than 30 active court cases challenging various gun control laws on Second Amendment grounds, in several states, including California, Washington, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. It is our intention to raise public awareness and grab the attention of various courts so these cases don’t end up gathering dust in some perpetual state of ‘pending’ action.”
The platforms where SAF’s message is now appearing are viewed daily by millions of people, and they can be entirely different audiences at each publication or website. Gottlieb says this puts SAF’s call to action in front of a widely diverse cross section of the public. Go here to support this important SAF effort.
“The Second Amendment Foundation has been on the cutting edge of gun rights litigation since our Supreme Court victory in McDonald v. City of Chicago in 2010,” Gottlieb said. “We fully intend to continue our education and litigation efforts wherever and whenever the opportunity and/or necessity arises. Defending the right to keep and bear arms is a full-time job, and we want our important legal work to advance.”
