Supporting the Second Amendment is similar to supporting any other cause. The main components are making your voice heard and sharing your passions. These organizations and actions are great and easy ways to make sure your freedoms are here to stay.

1. Join the NRA
As the oldest gun-rights advocacy group in the country, the NRA is the strongest and best chance we have to protect the Second Amendment. Tirelessly devoting its resources to training, education, lobbying and legislation, joining the NRA or making a donation to NRA-ILA is the fastest way to make a difference in the fight to preserve our right to bear arms. Recently, the NRA backed a Supreme Court case challenging New York’s restrictive carry laws and petitioned the Supreme Court to strike California’s magazine ban. Make your voice matter by supporting the only organization that has been championing firearm safety and competency since 1871. You can join our community of NRA Women here.

2. NSSF’s +ONE Movement
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) implemented a Let’s Go Shooting initiative designed to introduce more people to the shooting sports. By bringing a friend to the range, you’re not just showing them the excitement and comradery that comes with competitive shooting, you could be giving them the gift of personal safety and recruiting a new gun rights advocate. The +ONE Movement encourages recreational shooters to share their passions with others and create a strong shooting sports community to last generations. Take the pledge here.

3. Write Letters
Letters are a great way to show your congressmen and representative what you really care about: the Second Amendment. It’s a physical piece of evidence that shows those in power that you’re dissatisfied with their votes. Letters also take effort, even if it’s not a lot, which shows your recipient that the personal and specific contents of your letter is something you care enough about to find a piece of paper, politely pose your issues, put it in a stamped envelope and stick it in the mailbox. If you need more convincing, inspiration or even ready-made templates courtesy of the NRA’s Institute of Legislative Action (ILA), read Save the 2A: Go Grandmacore!

4. Take a Class
Proactive firearms training is fundamental to strengthening our cause. The more educated and responsible gun owners, the better. Whether it’s an NRA basic pistol, rifle or shotgun course, self-defense scenario training or a concealed-carry class, professional training will connect you to likeminded individuals, make you a stronger advocate and improve your skills. Continuous training is one of the proudest accomplishments a firearm enthusiast can achieve. Never stop learning, challenging yourself and connecting with other gun owners.
