BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)-The Second Amendment Foundation (“SAF”), a pioneer and national leader in defense of the right to keep and bear arms, today announced that attorney and experienced Second Amendment litigator Adam Kraut has been named as its Executive Director.

Kraut brings almost a decade of experience as a litigator and educator in the Second Amendment realm. Kraut has represented individuals, companies, and institutional plaintiffs throughout his career in state and federal litigation and regulatory matters.

In addition to his legal background, Kraut draws management experience from his time in the non-profit world, where he was responsible for overseeing the programmatic functions of a liberty-based non-profit, which concentrated on Second Amendment issues. He also managed a federal firearms licensee. Kraut comes with a variety of media experience, having written for publications such as Recoil magazine, Recoil Web, and other online publications, writing and hosting a YouTube series, hosting and appearing as a guest on multiple podcasts, and appearing on television.

“We’re delighted to have Adam coming aboard at a time when our legal activities are greatly expanding,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “He brings a wealth of experience to the position, at a critical time when we are challenging an array of restrictive gun control laws that clearly have restrained peaceable, law-abiding citizens while accomplishing nothing in the effort to reduce violent crime.

“Adam has been a SAF Life Member since 2013,” Gottlieb added. “He has a keen understanding of our mission, our history and our effort to win firearms freedom, one lawsuit at a time. We are proud to bring him aboard to fill an important role as we ramp up our fight to restore and expand the Second Amendment as the cornerstone of our Constitution.”

“I’m eager to continue SAF’s legacy of innovation and excellence in the legal, educational, and public arenas,” Kraut said. “For the better part of half a century Alan has built SAF into an organization which took a unique vision and made it reality. I look forward to working closely with him to shepherd the organization forward. We will continue to create the foundation for the next series of cases we hope to take to the Supreme Court to ensure the right to keep and bear arms is restored to its original meaning. At the same time, we will work to guarantee SAF’s longevity by bringing the next generation of gun owners into the fold.”

Yeah that’s the outfit that makes the ‘Honey Badger’. I’m gonna guess he owns one of those.


good choice, right there.


Damn Man why doesn’t the guy run for the President of the USA ? Get in a position where he could make some real changes.


Actually he might just be doing that. It’s extremely rare, with my feeble memory I can recall only one time in our history has a person who has never been elected to any political office ran and won the election, President Donald J. Trump.

This gentleman may be doing it the usual way, working his way there. If Alan Gottlieb says this guy is the real deal, I trust he is.


Welcome aboard! You’re sorely needed in these trenches.


Trenches! I refuse. It’s only four star quarters for us wing wipers. By the way, do tell the sommelier that last night’s wine pairing absolutely clashed with the rack of lamb.

I heard, but do not know if it is true, that the the Air Force Academy graduation exam contains a question concerning the proper spelling of the word sommelier. I dunno … I could be wrong!


Lol. Did you know that when we deploy for combat operations that if there are no provisioning to take our sommeliers with us then we get to claim it as a hardship tour? With a bit of wrangling then you can also negotiate for full per diem…

Wild Bill

You just have to embrace the suck, and carry on. lol.
