U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Independence Day. The 4th of July. This holiday represents FREEDOM. This has to be the most important and symbolic holiday for gun owners. It represents a time when our forefathers were tired of being stripped of their civil and religious liberties so they did something about it.
These heroes fought for the freedom we cherish today and many of them lost their lives doing so. Days like the 4th of July remind us at The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) what we work so hard for, what we work tirelessly to protect. We believe the founders of this great nation, who formed our 2nd Amendment, would be proud of our efforts to protect it!
SAF lawsuits have overturned anti-gun laws in dozens of major cities and battleground states. Threats of SAF lawsuits have removed well over 350 anti-gun-rights laws across the country as well as stopping hundreds more from being enacted.
Please make an Independence Day donation today to help the Second Amendment Foundation continue to challenge anti-gun laws across the United States. We could be fighting for your gun rights in your state next!
SAF has over 20 open legal cases focused on protecting the 2nd Amendment. These cases are being challenged in cities and states all across our United States. These cases are not won quickly; they tend to get drawn out into long, expensive battles.
SAF’s record of legal victories on behalf of the right to keep and bear arms has set the bar for all current and future firearms civil rights litigation.
It is important for us to inform all of our members of what the Second Amendment Foundation is involved in so you know where your generous donations do end up. We are so grateful for your commitment to protecting our Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
Our most recent victory occurred when the Supreme Court of the United States declined to review an important SAF case involving firearms rights for individuals convicted of certain non-violent misdemeanor crimes.
The decision allows an earlier favorable ruling for SAF by the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Pennsylvania to stand. In the case of Binderup v. the U.S. Attorney General, the appeals court ruled that individuals convicted of certain non-serious misdemeanor crimes do not lose their fundamental rights under the Second Amendment for life.
We cannot allow government to simply deny constitutionally-delineated rights on such flimsy grounds. While SAF’s goal is winning firearms freedom one lawsuit at a time, this time we won two!
Together, we can preserve the Constitutional rights our Founding Fathers intended our people to have forever.
Thank you. I know I can count on you.
