The Company Contrast Navigating the Non-Profits – Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America {Issue: Life, 2nd Amendment}

Each week 2ndVote takes a look at popular companies or organizations that either score well or score poorly.  We then try to provide alternatives that better align with the 2ndVote values. We’ve now expanded into nonprofits. This series is called The Company Contrast – Navigating the Non-Profits, and the charitable organizations we will be focusing on this week are Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (2.33) and Gun Owners of America (3.28).

As a subsidiary of Everytown for Gun Safety, Moms Demand Action is one of the leading gun-control advocacy nonprofit organizations in the country and is entirely bankrolled by Michael Bloomberg. In fact, Bloomberg’s network of gun control cronies funded over 130 different organizations across the country to the tune of $5,000 each for their “March for Our Lives” campaign. That totals out to nearly three-quarters of a million dollars, all dedicated to stripping Americans of their 2nd Amendment rights. What’s worse, is that a portion of that money went to a local chapter of Planned Parenthood that participated in the campaign. For these transgressions, Moms Demand Action receives the lowest possible scores on Life and 2nd Amendment.

Fortunately, there are organizations out there like Gun Owners of America who exist solely to take a stand for our rights. Founded by Senator H.L. Richardson in 1976, Gun Owners of America was started as a direct response to what many felt to be a lackluster effort by the NRA to take a no-compromise stance on gun control legislation. Nowadays, GOA continues its mission with that same philosophy, contesting that gun control of any kind is strictly unconstitutional. Through several of their subsidiary organizations, GOA funds efforts to spread education and awareness about firearms and the 2nd Amendment, as well as legal aid for law-abiding citizens in 2nd Amendment-related cases. They even advocate for instituting English as the official language of the United States. For these reasons, GOA receives top scores on the 2nd Amendment and a respectable score on Border Security/Immigration.
