Shameless commercial plug - I am an NRA Recruiter and get a commission for signing up new NRA members. But here's the deal: Our 2nd Amendment Rights Count On It...
We need your help! There is no doubt that the 2018 legislative session in the state of Colorado and the nation is going to be tough on gun rights. There is still yet a lot of work to do to save our rights and our future as gun owners. The new gun-friendly administration has been elected, but they are under fire and being attacked by those not friendly to our rights as citizens to defend ourselves. In fact, those wishing to take back power have even promised groups such as the "Brady Bunch" that they are will work on new gun control measures behind the scenes now and enact them once they are in power. And unfortunately, their newly emboldened base consists of some of the most anti-gun, anti-self-defense people in history.
But we have a strong ally: The hard work and dedication of the professionals at the National Rifle Association will ensure that we can take the fight against draconian and excessive gun control measures to those who don't want us to defend ourselves. Watch the short videos below about the NRA to learn more... Then JOIN TODAY, as we move forward in 2018 to ensure that all of us enjoy our RIGHTS for responsible gun ownership, self-defense.

The Second Amendment is second in importance only to the First!!! Indeed, it's the Second Amendment that allows the general population to defend all the rest of them from any attempt at tyranny.
"While the people have property, arms in their hands, and only a spark of noble spirit, the most corrupt Congress must be mad to form any project of tyranny."
Rev. Nicholas Collin, Fayetteville Gazette (N.C.), October 12, 1789
The following is a quote from James Madison sixteen (16) months before he introduced the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1789.
"Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of."
James Madison, The Federalist No. 48, February 1, 1788
I believe that our Second Amendment rights afford us as law-abiding citizens the ability to own firearms, and we should be able to use the tools that we see fit to protect ourselves, our families, and our property. The immortal and often debated meaning of the words of the Second Amendment "A well-regulated militia..." was intended to mean that all citizens have the right and responsibility to bear arms in protection of self, family, and country. "Well regulated" at the time, meant well trained and disciplined. We believe that the meaning and spirit of those words are just as relevant today. Our citizens should be well trained, but "...the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
