Help Spread The Truth and Promote Activism

Friday, May 13, 2005


Identify "Second Amendment Activist Centers"

Here in the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division, we are fond of talking about the need to "hunt where the ducks are" by utilizing the "natural resources" of the pro-gun community (gun shops, shooting ranges, gun & hunting clubs, and gun shows) to spread the word about gun-related issues.
 
In an effort to formalize this ongoing endeavor, we are seeking your assistance in identifying Second Amendment Activist Centers that will assist in distributing legislative and election-related materials to NRA members and gun owners.  Of course, it makes sense to focus on our natural resources, but any business willing to assist in this critical educational campaign is welcome to become an Activist Center.  Here's what we are asking you to do:
 
Determine which venues in your area would be suitable to serve as an Activist Center and contact them to see if they would be willing to participate in this program.  These Centers will provide NRA members and gun owners with NRA buttons, Fact Sheets on legislation and issues, volunteer sign-up forms, voter registration materials, and, in election years, information on grassroots activities and events.  Also, we are encouraging all Second Amendment Activist Centers that are able to do so, to make a computer terminal with Internet access available to their patrons so they may access our website-- www.NRAILA.org --and e-mail their lawmakers, on-the-spot, utilizing our site's "Write Your Representatives" and other features (specifically, the "Help Save America's Firearms Industry" section). 
 
Specific dates will be determined where individuals may go to the Activist Centers to pick up their materials for their personal use and to distribute to others, and NRA-ILA will alert its members and supporters to these dates and venues.  Thus, an additional incentive for a business to become a Second Amendment Activist Center, is that, not only will NRA-ILA work to inform area NRA members and gun owners of the dates to pick up materials, but we will also promote all Second Amendment Activist Centers via e-mail, on our website, in the NRA-ILA Grassroots Alert, and through our monthly newsletter, "Freedom's Voice."  So in addition to helping us disseminate critically-important information, NRA-ILA will also promote these establishments to our members and supporters which may increase business for them!
 
Please reach out to area businesses whom you think would be good candidates to serve as  Second Amendment Activist Centers, and if they will agree to serve in this capacity.  If so, either call (800) 392-8683 and ask to speak to your state's Grassroots Coordinator, or have someone from the potential Activist Center do so him/herself.  If you are the owner/manager of an establishment that wants to participate in this program, please call the aforementioned number and ask to speak directly to your state's Grassroots Coordinator.
 
As legislation to end reckless, predatory lawsuits against the gun industry prepares to be voted on (H.R. 800/S. 397), and as the 2006 elections approach, this project will pay huge dividends not only for gun owners, but for area retail businesses as well!
