Two national gun rights organizations are mobilizing to fight back against threats from the Joe Biden administration and Capitol Hill Democrats to impose extremist gun control measures in the wake of two tragic shootings that would not have been prevented by any of the restrictions now being proposed.
The Second Amendment Foundation and its sister organization, the grassroots Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms announced today they are amping up their respective national TV campaigns next week on more than 20 national networks. The 60-second messages will appear on Fox News, One America News Network, Dish TV, Inspiration Channel, Fox Business, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, The Weather Channel, Headline News, Bloomberg, BBC America, Destination America, Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel, SYFY, TLC, TruTV, DirecTV, Sportsman Channel and the Outdoor Channel.
“Between the two organizations, their messages will be aired a record 87 times next week,” said SAF founder Alan Gottlieb, who serves as the group’s executive vice president, and also chairs the CCRKBA.
“The nation has witnessed two awful incidents over the past ten days, and now the nation’s law-abiding gun owners are being threatened with new restrictions by Biden and his anti-gun Democrat allies in Congress for crimes they didn’t commit. Both murderers passed background checks, which proves gun control is not the answer.
This is the moment to make our stand. NOW.
Today, our movement is stronger than the gun lobby. They are weak. We are potent.
Finally, a President and a Congress that supports gun reform.
No more Newtowns. No more Parklands. No more Boulders.
Now – we make our stand.

“Both suspects are facing multiple murder charges,” he added, “and they will be held responsible for those crimes if they are convicted. But American gun owners are tired of being penalized for things they didn’t do, and our TV campaigns are mobilizing them to fight back. We are not going to stand by while Biden and his gun-grabbing cronies dismantle the Second Amendment. They’re pushing and we’re pushing back.
“These national TV campaign efforts will reach between 17 million and 20 million Americans, some multiple times,” Gottlieb estimated.
Gun owners can find out about each effort via text messaging, Gottlieb said.
