Action Alert: Don't Let the Media and Gun Control Activists Blame You for the Actions of Criminals -- Contact Your Lawmakers Today!
Rather than address our broken mental health system, our inability to provide proper school security, or numerous failings by law enforcement and others to identify a clearly dangerous individual, all solutions that NRA supports, gun control activists want to blame the NRA, its members, and America’s 120 million law-abiding gun owners. Make no mistake, the NRA will not let the media elites get away with blaming its members and the gun-owning public for the acts of a single deranged person or the culture of inaction that allowed him to operate unchecked.  The NRA is resolved to stand up to whatever forces seek to erode our freedom. Stand with us. Together, we are freedom’s last, best chance.
