    Really it is inexpensive to just join all or most of them. As long as they are a liberal group acting like a gun rights group I'll join.

    Just recently joined the Firearms Policy Foundation and the James Madison Society.

    The best bang for your buck gun rights group is if every member of THR wrote a letter to their elected representatives and told them that we pay attention to second amendment issues and vote accordingly

    I belong to multiple 2nd Amendment support groups because I like to multiply my impact across the state and national governments. I have two to four organizations speaking for me, instead of just one. NRA is the most visible, and broadly known. GOA is the most hardcore. SAF is the most cost efficient. VCDL is the most effective and active in my former home state (commonwealth).

    Question: By renewing membership at SAF I somehow got on the list for Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CRKBA) in Belleview WA. Uh, who are they? anyone know anything about their history and activity?

    Really, yet another thread discussing the various merits of RKBA advocacy organizations!

    Same answer from me, if they are fighting for RKBA I support them!

    It is the tax deductible 501(c)(4) sister organization to the Second Amendment Foundation. NRA-ILA to the NRA

    Good people.
    The connection from SAF is Alan Gottlieb.
    You get great mileage from your state organisation. In my case TSRA.

    Another SAF work along with Calguns Foundation and Firearms Policy Coalition - https://www.saf.org/fed-judge-permanently-enjoins-riverside-countys-ccw-application-denials/

    (5/24/19) "BELLEVUE, WA – A senior U.S. District Court judge in California has issued a permanent injunction against the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s longstanding policy of 'dissuading, discouraging, and preventing non-United States citizens from applying for a CCW license,' in a lawsuit brought by the Second Amendment Foundation, Calguns Foundation and Firearms Policy Coalition.

    SAF, Calguns and FPC were joined by the Firearms Policy Foundation and Madison Society Foundation, and Arie Van Nieuwenhuyzen, a permanent resident alien who has lived in Riverside since 1983 and is a business owner there.

    The case is known as Van Nieuwenhuyzen, et al. v. Riverside, CA Sheriff Stanley Sniff, et al.

    Senior United States District Judge Dean D. Pregerson entered the order permanently enjoining Riverside County from having a policy and practice that prevented legal U.S. residents from exercising their right to apply for a carry license.

    'We’re delighted with the outcome of this case,' said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. 'This isn’t our first experience with such a policy, and we’re happy to have had good partners in this challenge. Mr. Van Nieuwenhuyzen has been a productive, law-abiding member of his community for decades, and there is no good reason to discourage or deny someone of his background and standing the ability to apply for a carry license.'

    'This coalition victory is important,' added Brandon Combs of the Firearms Policy Coalition, 'because it not only helps to restore access to the fundamental right to bear arms, it also sends a crystal-clear message to carry licensing authorities that the rights of the people can and will be enforced in our courts. Anyone who stands between the People and their rights is on notice.'"
