The National Education Association (NEA) is no stranger to getting involved in promoting anti-gun positions. In 2000, this teachers’ union promoted a petition drive that called on Congress to enact numerous laws restricting our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. This year, the NEA outlines its support of gun control in the questionnaire it sends to candidates seeking office at the federal level. The group asks candidates if they agree with NEA’s support of attacks on gun shows, gun lock mandates, mandatory storage laws that would hold law-abiding gun owners criminally responsible if their firearms are stolen and used in crimes, and added restrictions on certain semi-automatic firearms.
If you are interested in contacting NEA to encourage it to remain focused on labor issues, rather than get involved with promoting attacks on the Second Amendment, you can reach the union at:
Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the "lobbying" arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
