New Jersey –-(Ammoland.com)- The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) is in the process of enhancing its leadership structure to better organize for the political and legislative battles that lie ahead.
In an effort to be better prepared to reach out into every county and election district in the state we have decided to recruit individuals who are motivated to oversee operations in their specific local areas and are willing establish a two-way communication channel with our Activism Coordinator.
Since we fully understand that most people have full-time jobs, family and other responsibilities, we are looking for individuals who can help us to efficiently organize area member and supporter volunteers.
Think of this as a division of a labor of love. We all want the same result, an end to senseless regulations that interfere with the lawful use of firearms that do nothing whatsoever to deter crime. We also wish to eliminate the obstacles to the right to carry handguns for personal defense and the protection of our loved ones as they do in the majority of other states. Area coordinators will be the primary point of contact for those volunteers willing to contribute a portion of their time to accomplish this mission. In this way we can minimize the time commitments of everyone concerned.
At present we have what I believe is a very good “central nervous system” in our Leadership Team. What we lack is an effective “peripheral nervous system” that can reach out and communicate directly with our members and supporters where they live. The monthly meetings are great, but we will be able to magnify our effectiveness EXPONENTIALLY once we have this structure in place. We will also be able to disseminate information faster and more reliably *AND* hear back from our members quickly when there is something we need to respond to in their geographic location.
To this end, I have asked member Corey Mulholland to act as the Activism Coordinator. His primary responsibilities will be to help us build the necessary structure to make this effort a reality, and to be the primary point of contact for the Leadership Team. The Area Coordinators will report to Corey and he will provide them with the resources they need to do their job. As a Marine and a Financial Adviser, Corey is well-equipped to handle this responsibility for the Society. I truly appreciate his willingness to take on this critical task.
The job of the Area Coordinators will be to work with Corey so that he can help to recruit and organize the volunteers in your local area. When there is a need to mobilize, Corey will work with the Area Coordinators to provide the information and resources necessary to coordinate the activities of the local volunteers. The Area Coordinators will also communicate the concerns of the volunteers in their area back to Corey so that together, we can find a solution.
If you are interested in becoming an Area Coordinator or if you need additional information, please contact Corey at [email protected] Please understand that since this is a completely new endeavor, the details will most likely evolve as we move forward. Like most start-ups, you will have an opportunity to help shape the direction of this program. I am very confident that the future members of the Leadership Team will develop from positions such as these.
I apologize for the length of this important post. Thank you for giving it your attention.Very Sincerely, Frank Jack Fiamingo
President – NJ2AS

The April monthly meeting of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society will be held on Wednesday, April 30, 7:30PM at the VFW in Kenilworth, NJ
Rich Pezzullo is running in the primary for the Republican nomination to run against Cory Booker to represent NJ in the United States Senate. He will make a brief presentation introducing himself to our members and supporters. I believe it is notable to mention that Rich was the candidate who joined us in Connecticut for the recent Gun Rights Rally there.
Candidate for United States Congress, Dave Larsen will be the featured speaker. This is an opportunity to hear his views on the subjects that are important to our members and supporters and to the community at large. Dave has always been a supporter of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
A regular meeting will follow these presentations. We will discuss our experience at the Connecticut Rally and update you on the latest information on what to expect here in New Jersey.
All are invited to attend. Please bring shooting buddies, friends and family. There is no cost to attend our meetings, however since we are a non-profit Society and depend on contributions from our member supporters, donations are always greatly appreciated
