Social Networking & New Media for the Second Amendment



Pittsburgh, PA --( The value of internet social networking and new media has exploded in recent years as more and more NRA members and gun owners are now using Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.

These online communities foster an important connection between their users, and allow distribution of user-generated content (like pictures, profiles, music, video, and text).

NRA-ILA has been a part of this social technology for some time now, with a presence on each of these sites. By actively participating in these new media venues, we are able to reach out to more potential members and supporters than ever before.

And now more than ever, politicians are also taking full advantage of these new political techniques in an effort to drum up more youth support heading into the 2012 elections.

Newt Gingrich tweeted from NRA’s 140th Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Pittsburgh: “What’s better than a royal wedding in London? Attending the @NRA Convention in Pittsburgh. I speak at 1:15 p.m.”

The current king of online social networking is Facebook. If you are not an NRA Facebook “fan” of NRA, please do what more than 1 million supporters have already done and join our Facebook group, “National Rifle Association of America (NRA) – Official Fan Page” at

YouTube is the current leader in online video sharing, where users can upload and share video clips on the website. Many political campaigns are also producing videos exclusively for YouTube, as it is essentially free to broadcast on the web compared to the exorbitant cost of traditional media buys.

NRA has its very own channel on YouTube, broadcasting videos, speeches, and all our latest ads. To view the NRA Channel on YouTube, please visit:

Finally, Twitter is the latest social phenomenon on which NRA-ILA has an ongoing presence. Twitter is a micro-blogging service that allows users to send regular, real-time text updates (known as “tweets”) to “followers” who have subscribed to them. To sign up to receive NRA-ILA “tweets,” please visit

If we are going to actively reach and recruit the future leaders of the pro-gun movement, we must take full advantage of these online social networking resources. By launching our profiles on these sites, the torch has been lit for the next generation, so please be sure to help us in promoting NRA and the Second Amendment by joining us on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter!

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen’s group. Four million members strong, NRA continues its mission to uphold Second Amendment rights and to advocate enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation’s leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the military. Visit:

    1. I’ll join NRA when they officially admit that their support of GCA68 and NFA34 were blunders, and when they begin work to get both of them repealed.

      Until then… they’re Not Relevant Anymore because they keep Negotiating Rights Away.
