The battle for “The Right to Bear Arms” needs your help. Here’s how you can help in Defending the Second Amendment
If you’re reading this; chances are you’re a gun owner or interested in becoming one and you are concerned about your safety, your right to keep and bear arms and if this right will be there for your children’s children.
You’ve hear the saying “The squeaky wheel gets the oil”, right? Well, this is how you can help others make their voices louder so we can protect our God given rights, including the Right to KEEP and bear arms! Won’t you help and take some action?
I’m guessing you love this country, and having the right to defend yourself, your property and your life, right? The Second Amendment is for everyone, but not everyone wants you to have freedom. It’s under attack.
As we celebrate some major events this week, Martin Luther King day (who spoke about our founding principals “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” and the hope that we “live in a nation where …we won’t be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”).
We’ve all seen a lot of stuff lately that we never thought c/would – especially, here in the Land of the Free – America. We are only free if we defend our founding principals.
Our First and Second Amendments are well, the most important – they support all the others.
Let us remember we’re all in this together. We should come together and become the glue ourselves in supporting these organizations who back us and the right to choose how we defend our lives, property, and loved ones.
Here’s some great organizations you can join forces with to create a louder voice for defending our Second Amendment.
- National Shooting Sports Foundation This is the Firearm industry trade association and who sponsors the coveted “Shot Show” trade show every year where the newest gear, firearms and accessory items are on display for the first time to the members for the industry.
- The Second Amendment Foundation is “dedicated to promoting a better understanding about our Constitutional heritage to privately own and possess firearms.” They are involved in many legal case across the US defending the right to bear arms.
- Gun Owners of America fights for our Second Amendment. They’re “non-profit lobbying organization formed in 1976 to preserve and defend the Second Amendment rights of gun owners. GOA sees firearms ownership as a freedom issue.”
- Firearms Policy Coalition to take back our Constitution and rights
- National Association of Gun Rights is one of the fastest growing gun rights group
DC Project Women for Gun Rights
ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) does great work on humanity, religious freedoms, abortion issues and many others.
And on the state level look for these great organizations lobbying for gun rights:
Arizona Citizens Defense League
Georgia Carry lobbies for better gun rights in Georgia
Virginia Citizens Defense League
Let’s all do our part in calling our representatives and making our voices heard. The old saying “the squeaky wheel gets the oil” can’t be truer than the times we’re living in. We must make some noise or the risk of our great nation and the values we treasure will be a memory.

To my elected Representative,
The purpose of the Second Amendment is to secure our ability to oppose enemies foreign and domestic, a guarantee against disorder and tyranny. The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.’
A citizen’s right to keep and bear arms for personal defense unconnected with service in a militia has been reaffirmed in the U.S. Supreme Court decision (District of Columbia, et al. v Heller, 2008). The Court Justice Scalia wrote in the majority opinion: “The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.”
Throughout history, disarming the populace has always preceded tyrants’ accession of power. Hitler, Stalin, and Mao all disarmed their citizens prior to installing their murderous regimes. At the beginning of our own nation’s revolution, one of the first moves made by the British government was an attempt to disarm our citizens. When our Founding Fathers ensured that the 2nd Amendment was made a part of our Constitution, they were not just wasting ink. They were acting to ensure our present security was never forcibly endangered by tyrants, foreign or domestic.
But, is the problem really guns? It is important that we recognize that this is not a gun control problem; it is a complex sociological problem often resulting in malice and evil intent of the individual(s) choosing to use a tool such as a firearm to inflict harm and damage. Did we outlaw cars to combat drunk driving? Focus must be clear on the individual’s action and behavior; not the tool.
Consider domestic violence victims where the firearm is a great equalizer. The choice to defend oneself with a firearm is guaranteed by the Second Amendment. Every victim is alone in an attack. How long before help arrives, if it arrives at all or in a timely manner? The victimized individual should be able to defend themselves by whatever means possible.
This is our country; these are our rights. You swore to uphold them and defend The Constitution of the United States of America and I hired you to represent me. I urge you to support and vote for all Pro Second Amendment bill and object to any bill that infringes on these rights.
You’re serious about your safety. I know firsthand the frustration of concealing a firearm. Incognito Wear IX has Made in America clothing that solves “how to” dress so that others can’t tell (or see) the firearm or it’s imprint. We’re here to make it easy to conceal a firearm and dress attractively so no one knows (you’re armed and will defend your life).
I want you to “Never be a victim because of style”. Don’t let fashion keep you from being armed.
