GunFreedomRadio EP195 The Ameri-CAN Series: Gun Rights Matter with Alan Gottlieb
We are doing a series called Ameri-CAN. Talking about the CAN-DO spirit that is part of our American DNA. So much about our lives has been turned upside down by this Corona Virus / Covid-19, and we have been hearing a lot about what we CAN’T do and where we CAN’T go, but our guests during this series are going to talk to us about their area of expertise and all of the ways we still CAN learn and grow, train, connect, and expand our freedoms in ways we maybe haven’t thought about before.
Our guest today is Alan Gottlieb. (Technical difficulties prevented us from having Alan on camera, but the sound is clear and strong.) Alan is the Founder of the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF). The SAF is dedicated to promoting a better understanding about our Constitutional heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Alan is also the author or co-author of numerous books including “Things You Can Do to Defend Your Gun Rights” and “Assault on Weapons: The Campaign to Eliminate Your Guns”.
1) The SAF is one of the leading front-line organizations that is daily in court somewhere across the nation defending our legal rights to keep and bear arms. You have been busier than ever during this Covid Season, Alan, as we have seen Governors, Mayors, and even City Managers attempt to prevent citizens from owning guns and ammo. Tell us about a few of the battles the SAF has engaged in just since Covid-19 became a news item?
2) What would you say to the millions of brand new first time gun owners who have made the important decision to purchase the tool / the firearm that you work so hard to help them continue to legally own?
3) If more people were personally connected to and had actually read our US Constitution, I know your job would be easier. A lot of, possibly well-meaning, but really bad laws would never even have been written, much less voted into existence. How can people begin to be proactive and be personally involved in the work that you and your organization do?
4) Each year the SAF organizes a huge event, the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC), that brings thought-leaders together for an entire weekend to discuss our Rights, current laws, and challenges on the horizon. Tell us about this event?
