Savethe2a.org was founded by two concerned NRA Members after the tumultuous members meeting at the NRA annual donvention this past spring.
The organization is advocating for specific reforms at the NRA to help it recover from the internal crisis it is currently facing after years of dysfunction. Save The Second was successful in collecting enough voting member signatures on a petition to add a vote on a bylaw change to create mandatory attendance for directors at future board meetings. Leaders of the organization are also working with NRA directors to work for other reforms.
Save The Second was planning to attend this week’s board meetings in Alaska, but has pivoted with the organization to the new meeting location in northern Virginia.
The NRA Board meetings will take place this week at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport hotel in Herndon, Virginia. Any NRA member can attend committee meetings on Thursday and Friday as well as the primary board meeting in Saturday morning, September 14.
Here’s the hotel address:
Hilton Washington Dulles Airport
13869 Park Center Rd.
Herndon, VA 20171
“While I am skeptical of the NRA’s explanation for the venue change, I am excited that more NRA Members will now be able to attend on Saturday morning,” said Rob Pincus, Save the Second board member.
“We will be there to represent concerned American Gun Owners, and we encourage any current NRA member to show up at 7:30 AM to be heard themselves.
“We are also hoping that those concerned about the organization and creating a stronger, more effective NRA for the future will join us Friday from 6pm to 8pm evening at the host hotel to discuss these issues,” Pincus said.
