Locate "Second Amendment Activist Centers"

Saturday, June 18, 2005

In previous issues of the Grassroots Alert, you've read about a new campaign we have launched to identify Second Amendment Activist Centers--area businesses that will assist in distributing legislative and election-related materials to NRA members and gun owners.

The response thus far has been great, as to date, we've already identified some 22 Activist Centers.  The proprietors of these establishments have been contacted, have been advised of their role, and are stocked with materials.  To find out if there is an Activist Center near you, please visit http://www.nraila.org/ActionCenter/ActivistCenters.aspx  or call the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-8683.  If there is an Activist Center near you, please stop by to pick up materials for your own personal use and for distribution throughout the pro-Second Amendment community.

Of course, we are constantly looking to grow our network of Second Amendment Activist Centers and are counting on you to assist.  Here is a reminder of what is involved in this endeavor:

* 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.  Obvious places to solicit would include (but aren't limited to) gun shops, gun & hunting clubs, and shooting ranges.  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.  (Individuals will also be free to stop by the Centers at their leisure to retrieve items.)  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 ask 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 or 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!

Please visit http://www.nraila.org/ActionCenter/ActivistCenters.aspx or call the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-8683 today to find out if there is a Second Amendment Activist Center near you!
