As the Founders Intended
At the National Association for Gun Rights, not only do we work tirelessly to defend against attacks on our Second Amendment Freedoms, but we work to advance true firearms freedom in the form of Constitutional Carry legislation.
Constitutional Carry is the simple idea that law-abiding people shouldn’t be forced to get a government permission slip to exercise their right to self-defense. No one should be treated like a criminal simply for wishing to carry a firearm in defense of themselves or their family.
NAGR strongly believes that Constitutional Carry is the way our founders intended for citizens to exercise their constitutionally protected right to bear arms. NAGR has helped propose Constitutional Carry legislation in dozens of states, and was instrumental in passing Constitutional Carry in both Kansas and Maine in 2015.
Support Constitutional Carry in your state today.
National Association for Gun Rights members have already won stunning victories throughout the first half of 2016. Here are the major highlights:
March, 2016 – Constitutional Carry passes in West Virginia, thanks to NAGR members who pushed the bill through the legislature and led the charge for an override vote in the House and Senate after anti-gun Governor Ear Ray Tomblin vetoed the bill.
March, 2016 – Constitutional Carry passes in Idaho due to overwhelming support from gun owners in the state, leading to a vast majority of state legislators voting in favor of the bill. NAGR members did the heavy lifting in forcing Governor Otter to sign with bill over his own loud objections.
April, 2016 – Constitutional Carry passes in Mississippi, and is signed into law by Governor Phil Byrant, despite a year of anti-gun efforts from gun rights opponents in the Legislature. NAGR members singlehandedly held these anti-gun politicians accountable through the 2015 state Elections, and forced the bill through with strong majorities.
July, 2016 – Following the terrorist attack in Orlando, FL, the anti-gun crowd in Washington, D.C. pushed 6 separate anti-gun amendments in the U.S. Senate. The National Association for Gun Rights singlehandedly led the fight, delivering more than 300,000 petitions and tens of thousands of phone calls and emails. If passed, these anti-gun measures would have stripped law-abiding gun owners of their right to bear arms without due process. After a week of intense floor battles, all 6 anti-gun measures were defeated.
At the same time, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced he was moving forward with anti-gun H.R. 5611, which again would have stripped Americans of their Constitutional rights without due process. NAGR delivered over 500,000 petitions, over 15,000 phone calls and a flood of email and other grassroots pressure, literally shutting down the Capitol communications system at times. Once again, the anti-gun crowd was forced to retreat, as members of Congress did an aboutface and ran from the bill.
Despite these victories, the anti-gun crowd, led by the likes of Hillary Clinton and anti-gun billionaire playboy Michael Bloomberg, is pushing harder than ever for sweeping gun control measures.
Bloomberg and his allies are already pushing their radical agenda in states all across the union, where they’re gearing up for the fast-approaching legislative season.
And in Washington, D.C., the anti-gun crowd and the left-leaning media are clamoring for heavy restrictions. Thanks to this all-out attack, gun control will almost certainly be the topic of discussion when Congress return from the Summer Recess.
Gun owners must be ready to meet this anti-gun tsunami head on.
