Grassroots Gun Rights Groups Gain Momentum

By Alan Gottlieb

Considering that there are an estimated 80 million gun owners in the United States, view it should be no surprise that local organizations devoted to protecting and promoting gun rights – especially in the wake of the 2008 Heller ruling and the 2010 McDonald decision by the U.S. Supreme Court – have been springing up, view growing in numbers and gaining political clout.

As founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, treatment which brought the landmark case of McDonald v. City of Chicago to the high court with the cooperation of the Illinois State Rifle Association, I have witnessed this surge in gun rights interests with delight. Today, SAF is proudly involved in legal actions with several grassroots organizations, challenging onerous state and local gun laws.

For example, SAF is cooperating with Grass Roots North Carolina, a pro-gun-rights organization, in a challenge of North Carolina’s emergency powers statute that allows the governor or local officials to suspend Second Amendment rights outside of the home during a declared emergency. -[source]
