Freedom is fleeting without the means to protect it. That is the lesson that so many in European nations have learned the hard way, finding themselves helpless at the hands of predatory criminals and terrorists. In America, we will never sign away our right to self-defense. The NRA Foundation educates to instill in future generations a respect and understanding of this freedom that guarantees all the others. We are Freedom’s Safest Place.
The National Rifle Association is America's longest-standing civil rights organization. Together with our more than five million members, we're proud defenders of history's patriots and diligent protectors of the Second Amendment.
