USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- These pro-gun websites need the support of gun owners to exist. Without us, they would not be able to survive. Each one does an immeasurable amount of good in preserving our rights. Please visit each one and subscribe to their email lists as it is the only way they can keep in touch with you and not have big-tech shadowban them out of view.
Crime Prevention Research Center: www.crimeresearch.org
Anti-gunners hate this group with a passion that alone is a reason to support them. The only tool we have is facts, and I’ll be honest. I use his data for a lot of my articles.
When you hear that the U.S. has the most mass shooting and that we are a crazed gun culture, the proof that this is a lie comes from Dr. John Lott. (The U.S. ranks 11th in mass shooting among industrialized nations and 64th overall, here is the link.)
The Second Amendment Foundation: www.saf.org
The Heller and McDonald rulings from the SCOTUS were initiated and driven by the 2nd Amendment Foundation. On a national level, these guys are the top dog. They don’t really lobby or do community activism, but they do smack the anti-gunners in court, and they’re the best there are.
The list of legal cases they’re involved in their list of wins dwarfs almost every other pro-gun group.
The Friends of the NRA: www.friendsofnra.org
A true grassroots organization, and insulated from the much of the politics of the NRA itself the FNRA is the charity arm of the NRA.
I chair the Los Padres chapter in Ventura County. So from personal experience, here is what the FNRA funds. The Boy Scouts, JROTC, and Women on Target.. etc.
The FNRA’s goal is to grow the shooting sports and bring new people into the sport of shooting.
In other words, the FRNA invests in our future.
Most important, the allocation of monies for the grants is done on a local basis; and the FNRA ranks as having one of the lowest ratios of operating cost to grant allocation. (more money is spent on grants than most any other charity.)
So pick an event and attend (4 million other people have) or join the 13,000 volunteers that make these events possible.

There are a lot of groups you can belong to; some are little more than websites, others nothing but scams that drain funds from the groups that actually do the work. These four, however, will make a difference. Get involved with any of these groups, and you too will help make a difference.
Every one of the leading Democrat presidential candidates has called for gun bans and confiscation. The time to get involved is now. A small effort today equals the preservation of our rights tomorrow.
