Enthusiasm Abounds at Second Annual Second Amendment Youth Leadership Conference

On Saturday, May 21st, in conjunction with NRA’s Annual Meetings in Louisville, NRA-ILA’s Grassroots Division hosted the Second Amendment Youth Leadership Conference. Demonstrating the support for our rights among college students and millennials, attendance was double that of last year’s inaugural event!

After being greeted by NRA First Vice President Pete Brownell, who spoke about the importance of tomorrow’s leaders engaging today, attendees heard from members of ILA’s Grassroots Division staff, who provided them with important information on:

  • Framing the gun control debate
  • Current federal and state legislative issues
  • Campus activism
  • Grassroots programs for college students
  • Employment opportunities with NRA

No doubt, the highlight of the event was an impassioned and heartfelt story told by Kimberly Corban about a harrowing attack she endured in college while unarmed.  The students sat riveted as they saw the real-world consequences of disarming their peer group and rendering them helpless.  Kimberly’s courage in recounting her story put a real face on the importance of the Second Amendment and self-defense.

Following the presentations, attendees broke out into individual stations where they met one-on-one with Grassroots staff to further discuss and delve into the topics discussed during the event and earned NRA “swag”, like t-shirts, stickers, bags, hats, koozies and posters.  Throughout the event other items were raffled off, including tickets to that evening’s Toby Keith concert.

The event, largely comprised of millennials, was well-attended, well-received and demonstrated the enthusiasm and willingness of today’s college students to Stand and Fight with NRA this election season!

For those who were unable to attend this unique event in Louisville, we hope to see you at next year’s conference in Atlanta!
