The Fight is On!
Wednesday, President Obama nominated Merrick Garland to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left behind Justice Antonin Scalia. Make no mistake – Justice Garland is no friend of our 2nd Amendment rights. In fact, the Washington Times reports that Garland has a “very liberal view on gun rights”, and Media Matters says it is quite likely Garland will vote to reverse Justice Scalia’s landmark case, D.C. v. Heller. There has never been a more important and uncertain time for the 2nd Amendment, and 2AO needs your support now more than ever.
What You Can Do
- Sign our petition. If you haven’t done so already, sign the America’s Amendment for All petition. Your name will be added to the growing list of patriots who support the 2nd Amendment. Copies of the signed petition will be delivered to our elected officials, telling them we put on notice any elected official or business that seeks to limit, alter, infringe the 2nd Amendment by discriminatory practices.
- Tell your friends about 2AO. Share this post with everyone you know and encourage them to take a stand by joining 2AO.
- Call your Senators and Members of Congress. Tell them you do not support any Supreme Court nominee that does not steadfastly support our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
- Support the 2AO Bus Tour. On May 31st, a team of trainers and educators from 2AO and A Girl & A Gun will board our bus and start out on the first leg of our 2016 bus tour. The 2AO Bus Tour will travel through 14 states, making stops in over 20 major cities, and is designed to spread the word of how important our 2nd Amendment right is, to introduce the shooting sports to historically under-represented groups, and to educate those who question the necessity of the 2nd Amendment. Consider making a donation to get the 2AO Bus tour rolling. Any amount will make a huge difference in our campaign to support the 2nd Amendment.
Yes, the fight is on and we must stand firm! If Merrick Garland is confirmed, it will swing the balance of the Supreme Court for generations to come and forever change our 2nd Amendment rights. Now is the time to make your voice heard. Please stand with the hundreds of thousands of 2AO members and take action!
