In addition to our own research Second Amendment Check has decided it is worth sharing the work of others.  Therefore, we are sharing the NRA-ILA’s lists of:

“Anti-Gun National Organizations”

“Anti-Gun Corporations/Corporate”

“Anti-Gun Publication and Media Outlets”

“Anti-Gun Individuals & Celebrities”

At Second Amendment Check we always attempt to source our material in our quest to provide objective and credible information.  Again, these lists have been compiled by the NRA-ILA, whom we recognize as a credible source of information.  Having said that, the exact criteria for making it onto the list are unclear, and the claims of being “Anti-Gun” have not been independently verified or validated by Second Amendment Check.

Also, after having had these lists published on their public website for many months, they have been removed after receiving some recent attention in the alternative media.  As noted in the Feb 11, 2013 update in this this Huffington Post article, the NRA-ILA has quietly removed the list from their website, but it can still be found in a web archive from January.  The reason for the removal of this list is not yet known.  Speculation suggests that the NRA ILA didn’t want to call unwanted attention to itself, or perhaps that it is reassessing or updating that list.  Second Amendment Check will attempt to get to the bottom of this mysterious disappearance.

NRA ILA List of Anti’s:


The following organizations have lent monetary, grassroots or some other type of direct support to anti-gun organizations. In many instances, these organizations lent their name in support of specific campaigns to pass anti-gun legislation such as the March 1995 HCI “Campaign to Protect Sane Gun Laws.” Many of these organizations were listed as “Campaign Partners,” for having pledged to fight any efforts to repeal the Brady Act and the Clinton “assault weapons” ban. All have officially endorsed anti-gun positions.

  1. It is absolutely true when compared with our peer countries. I’ve already posted that data.


  2. Doctors kill more people than people with firearms. 250,000 deaths attributed to doctors every year. But losers like Larry think we need to pay more attention to law-abiding citizens who use firearms to protect themselves and their families.


  3. People with guns kill people. That’s practically the only way people kill people. There are no longer any compelling reasons for people to have guns so let’s remove the guns and far fewer people will be killed. Very simple.


    • Yeah, that’s real simple. Except for the fact that you cannot completely eradicate firearms from society. Look at every other nation that has enacted strict gun control. They STILL have gun violence. The only difference is, their citizens can’t defend themselves. Even Japan, with the single most “obedient” population in the world, and the strongest gun control, still has gun violence.

      And let’s say we could eradicate firearms. Do you really think that would stop people from using other weapons? How people died by the sword, bow, and spear before firearms were invented?

      Face it. Your problem isn’t with guns; it’s with people. The only way to prevent people from killing other people is to kill all the people.

      It’s an unsolvable problem. Get over it.


      • “It’s an unsolvable problem. Get over it” That’s not entirely true, if the trachers at columbine had firearms, how many people wouldn’t have died? The best way to stop a criminal with a gun is to meet their 9mm with a 10 gauge.


        • Yes, it is true. The problem I’m referring to (which I made clear in my comment) is the problem of humans killing other humans. Their is no solution that does not involve destruction of the species.


        • I love science. I wouldn’t worry to much about anti gun owners. According to evolution. They will simply die off from stupidity before they can organize to ban weapons. Or during the confiscations period they would become target practice and eventually extinct.


      • He can’t because he is too emotionally connected to the idea proffered by his sources of sacred, cows, movie actors.


    • The day my rights are taken away is the day I become a killer and a criminal like our for father’s did. I will dare to fight back. No one is taking shit from me without a fight. Good training is important they train well too.


      • I have seen no more perfect evidence than your response that we need more gun laws. Thank you for showing us all that as a gun owner you are a danger to society.


        • That’s the problem with your “logic”. You think a reference to the war that won our country its freedom is evidence that we shouldn’t be allowed to have guns.

          You really should move to Britain if you want to be told how to live your life.


        • sounded like fair warning not to go there in reality


        • Be careful Larry, there you go again with emotional explosions. You just might become a target to be extinguished


    • What an ignorant statement. Firearms are already outlawed for the 99.9% of people using them in crimes. But you feel free to go throw yours off the end of a pier if it will help you sleep better knowing there is one less gun in America. While you’re out there, please toss all of your knives, baseball bats and car in also as they cause more injuries and deaths than guns do.


    • It seems that you’re more sympathetic to the lives of criminals than the lives of innocent citizens, Larry. Why is that? Why is it that you fail to admit that people use firearms every day to protect themselves and their families? Why is it the lives that matter to you most are the ones who are killing other people unjustifiably?

      Face it, Larry. You’re just afraid of guns, because you’ve never been exposed to them. You’re a candy-ass with no intention of ever maturing.


    • Gun owners don’t get the real risk. You are NOT safer with your gun, because your 3 or 4 year old will kill you by accident, or you will kill your own children thinking they are intruders. You are all way overconfident in your abilities to respond to a theoretical intruder or some situation. Guns have no place in densely packed urban areas, where innocents will be killed by someone acting in “self defense” who isn’t trained. Guns should be outlawed in favor of Tasers and pepper spray.


      • You’re an idiot. In any situation the average citizen could find themselves threatened in, a gun, at worst, evens the odds. At best it places you in a position of vast advantage. Ask a cop what he’d rather have if faced with someone who is armed with a firearm. Would he rather have a Taser and/or pepper spray, or would he rather have a firearm? Ten out of ten cops will say they’d rather have a gun.

        You morons continually try to justify your fear of an inanimate object by vilifying those who use them for perfectly benign reasons, while at the same time doing your very best to keep that unreasonable and irrational fear alive and well in those just as ignorant as yourselves.

        Oh, and you’re high as a kite if you think Hillary’s going to be president. But thanks for confirming your dissociative disorder for everyone to see.


      • Gunsfornone: Your logic is really flawed, seriously. You are making strawman statements. I highly recommend that you take some time and honestly research firearms history and philosophy. “They who willingly give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty or safety”. Also. “youth ages, immaturity is outgrown, ignorance can be educated, drunkenness sobered, but stupid lasts for ever.” (Aristophanes). I figure these sayings fit you rather properly because you refuse to think for yourself rather than follow the cows.
        Many anti-gunners pee all over themselves about automatic firearms and dance and jump proclaiming there were no automatic weapons during the revolution. Gunsfornone. This is about one of the most illiterate and ignorant statements an anti-gunner can make even for Silverster Stallone (a mush head) “Girandoni invented the first automatic firing rifle in 1779, and Lewis and Clark used it on their expedition. It was effective at 125 yards at 800psi. That eliminates the argument about the possession of owning semi-automatic rifles, despite the fact you can own an automatic. Educate yourself before you blow your brains out.


    • I’m with you 100% Larry. With Scalia 6 ft under and Hillary about to be elected, we will soon have individual gun ownership rights revoked, and we will revert to gun ownership under control of organized militias, as the Second Amendment intended, not any fool customer of WalMart


      • Do you even know what a organized militia is? Obviously not you blithering idiot. Go read your history and peruse Blacks Law Dicitionary on what a Militia is.


    • Now that is a slick comment Larry. A perfect example of pure opinion without an iota of cognitive thought or logical reasoning behind it. Your remark is purely emotional, just the way you purchase things in your life, an emotional response. Dare to even reason what the second amendment is about. All anti-second amendment individuals think with their emotions and especially many actors. If they seriously held these views they would reject making movies which in involves violence with guns or any instrument. Many of you refuse to apply a bit of research to understand the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and our history. I would love to go on with a logical, reasoned and common sense approach to this issue, but it would be useless against individuals who can only think emotionally. I hope you never have to face a bad situation wherein a firearm would save your life and life of your loved ones.


    • No part of that statement is true. The majority of people with guns do NOT kill people. And if we should remove everything that can be used to kill people, than we must remove all knives, rocks, bricks, rope, fire, hands, bridges, water, cliffs, cars, bats, crow bars, axes, arrows, logs, and all other hard or sharp objects.


  4. Having a second amendment is the key word. I have. Another key word is civilized. That only exist because of our second amendment freedom comes with that as well. Another thing anti American idiots should look at a map of the United States of shootings that were not suicide. Then open a map of Americans by ethnic groups it will show most gun violence is in African Americans ethnic locations the most I wonder if they know that they kill each other out of rash anger and greed. The facts are guns don’t kill people do. Another fact is ethnic groups different and location on violence in general. Guns aren’t even the most used weapon to kill.


  5. There is a difference between ISIS and freedom-loving Americans, a trained person with a decent 30-06 rifle will be beter than a local law enforcement with .45 acp. I have been taught gun safety and responsible usage for when our government is so liberal and controling we have to stand up to protect our loved ones. Those shootings refered to at the top are almost guaranteed not a person defending his/her family from harm or to protect their Constitutional rights. Organizations that stand up for not only the ability to own firearms, but responsible use of the firearms, like the NRA stand out, and still, people consider people who belive in our rights akin to terror groups.
    Yeah, this has all been said
    Yes, I know
    I just was casting my vote


  6. NRA and the 2nd amendment are allowing the killing of innocent Americans, over 320,000 in 10 years, and keeping the USA from joining the CIVILIZED part of the world.

    NRA and the 2nd amendment has found a way to get American citizens exterminated that are are 100 times more effective than ISIS and Al Qaeda combined.

    USA has one(1) mass shooting per day, civilized countries with strict gun laws has on an average one(1) mass shooting per decade.

    USA has 10 times as many gun related death than the average civilized country with strict gun laws.

    Only uncivilized, unintelligent, uncaring, uninformed, uneducated, un……… individuals can not make the connection between the insane number of killings and the proliferation of guns/weapons.


    • If guns kill people, how does anyone get out of gun shows alive?
      Guns don’t kill people, criminals kill people, if we ban guns, I guess our gun crime will stop… OH WAIT, remind me again about how criminals follow laws!
      We need guns to protect our rights in an anti-gun nation, and protect our family’s lives.
      In these times, it’s more honorable to be killed than to protect yourself.
      Taking away guns only stops the moral people, not school shooters, not terrorists, not hitmen, not snipers, only good-hearted people who are now only protected by a generally competent, but 20 minutes away police force.


  7. They should be shot by a firing squad or hanged.


  8. Roger l. Roark

    Hi my name is Roger I’m a firm believer in the constitution all of them.I feel if anyone who dose not believe in constitution are tyrants and should be forced to leave our country.


    • NRA and the 2nd amendment are allowing the killing of innocent Americans, over 320,000 in 10 years, and keeping the USA from joining the CIVILIZED part of the world.

      • Homicide per 100 people in the U.S. is actually much lower than many countries that have less gun ownership per 100 people than the U.S. If your statement was true, the U.S. would have the highest homicide rate per 100 people, but that is blatantly not true.


  9. You don’t seem to know what per capita means.


    • YOU don’t seem to know what it means. Let me clear that up for you…

      Per capita – for each person; in relation to people taken individually.

      By this definition, you lump gun owners and non-gun owners into the same group. In comparison, you use a country where roughly half the population owns guns against countries where less than 5% of the population own guns.

      What this amounts to is you and your ilk claiming that gun owners are the problem, but then refusing to acknowledge the statistics that point to gun owners alone and the crime rate per gun owner.

      Conclusion? Neither the number of guns nor the number of gun owners is correlative to gun crime statistics.

      Consider yourself educated.


  10. Because they want to destroy the constitution and they can’t do it if we are armed to the teeth and train hard for a fight.


  11. Thanks for sharing the facts and calling out the NRA for what it is: self-serving minority that has no regard for human life. It’s just embarrassing that it even exists…what an ugly blemish on our otherwise beautiful country.


    • You are under the desperate illusion that guns kill people. if guns kill people, how does anyone get out of gun shows alive? The NRA gives moral citizens more liberties, more gun restrictions take those away. But, I mean, more laws would stop criminals from killing right? HA! No, remind me just how well criminals follow laws


      • Yes, gun ownership is a big problem and gun laws are very effective. That has been proven by all of our peer countries. Just keep your head in the sand while sensibility prevails.


    • What facts? There hasn’t been any facts from you two.


  12. NRA and the 2nd amendment are allowing the killing of innocent Americans, over 320,000 in 10 years, and keeping the USA from joining the CIVILIZED part of the world.

    • Only short sighted, sheltered, naive, individuals can advocate for a weapons ban. Only unintelligent, uncaring, uninformed, unrealistic, underacheivers can continue an argument based on nothing more than personal opinion when there are obvious facts that have yet to be responded too. This is called ignorance. In this thread…I believe we have everything on the table here. Yet the anti-gunners just look at one ill-conceived notion taking up the small space on their side of the table and ignore everything else on the table. Besides your facts are wrong regarding mass murders unless you are counting just one country that happens to be Norway…which has a substantially lower population and a very comparable amount of geography.


  13. Everyone just ignore Larry he is a Troll sent by libtards and has common core beliefs and is severely retarded.


    • Thanks Donald for helping everyone on this blog understand your valuable perspective.

      Now…if anyone out there is ready to learn how things really work and what is actually going to happen I am happy to help you understand that.


      • Larry. I get that you disagree with 75% of the things people are saying in this forum, but do you really have to be such a condescending narcissist to everybody?

        You have it in your head that an all out ban of guns would reduce gun violence.

        I’m not going to say that is true or false.

        But what I have said repeatedly, and will say again is that it will NOT eliminate it completely. There will still be illegal arms in circulation.

        Now I personally think there will be a slight decrease in gun violence, if guns are banned. However… the keyword is “slight” and the slight decrease in gun violence will pale in comparison to the “enormous” amount of typically law abiding citizens and taxpayers who will eventually be thrown in jail for illegal gun possession… not to mention the enormity of the civil war that will undoubtedly be triggered, and how long this “slight” decrease in gun violence will take to have a positive effect after many lives are lost during the riots and resulting public disarray.

        Another fact to note is how much crime will multiply (burglaries, thefts, organized crime, etc) when anything can be done using an illegal gun in the 10-15 minutes minimum that it takes for law enforcement to arrive. (You have absolutely failed to consider and even ignored the usefulness of armed intimidation against criminals, and even refuted the concept by burdening the person who brought it up with the need for documented proof…(Did you even think about it?)

        Now, I’ve sat back and watched you criticize the ideas of others for the last few months on this forum. I’ve even argued back and forth with you a bit, myself.

        So why don’t you step up and take a turn. Convince me.
        How will we all be safe everyday if we don’t have armed protection like guns?

        What will be the solution to the lag response time of law enforcement?

        What will stop armed criminal militia’s, foreign and domestic, from sweeping through inadequately protected jurisdictions?

        Where will the money come from to employ more law enforcement officials when we are in debt from our Medical and Defense budget alone?

        If we are invaded by another country like Russia, how will we defend our homeland in inadequately protected jurisdictions during the extremely relaxed response time of the US armed forces ( September 11, 2001 would be a great example of our “response time” since air traffic controllers noted the rogue airliners 2-3 hours before impact)

        How will I defend my children from psychopath shooters who illegally carry guns, while I wait for the police to arrive?

        And lastly…. Why do you want me, a grown man with self-respect and pride, to be reduced to hiding in a closet while somebody is trying to harm my loved ones?

        Answer some questions for once, sir.

          • 500,000 to 2.5 million lives are saved every year by defensive gun uses.

            Compare that to your 32,000 a year (which includes suicides and those criminals shot by the police in the line of duty).

            Look at any other country (except maybe Japan) and count the number of people who legally have firearms. Now find that same number from the US. Then compare those numbers to the numbers of gun deaths in each country. End result is, the US has far fewer gun deaths per gun owner than ony other country in the world.

            Can you explain this? Perhaps you can explain why it is that people like you never admit these facts. You insist upon using fallacious math and numbers to push an agenda that is false once all of the lies are exposed. Why do you lie? Why do you incite fear? Why do you want people to be defenseless?

          • Here is the actual ranking that Bill Whittle references:


            Where does the USA rank among our peer countries? Last. By far. Our per capita murder rate Is more than four times higher than these countries that have stronger gun laws that ours: Australia, UK, France, Netherlands, Austria, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan…the list goes on.

            Thanks Bill for citing statistics that overwhelmingly justify stronger gun laws.

          • Larry is still using fallacious statistics to “prove” his points. Take the number of gun owners in any country, then find the number of gun murders in that country. You’ll find that the US has the lowest gun crime rates per gun owner in the world. This is the fact that Larry and his ilk won’t admit to. It’s the reason they insist upon using their incorrect math – the facts do not support their position.

      • What would happen? What your claiming to be a prophet? your full of crap moron.

  14. It is a right. Not a privilege. A privilege can be taken away a right can not. Gun ownership in the United States will not be removed from American people. Only libtards think that’s possible or Hillary Clinton. Common core people who want to abolish the constitution won’t win. Have you ever heard of an unarmed person taking away a gun from anyone? Good luck. I will dare state this fact it is impossible for anyone to ever take away the right to bare arms in America with a law of any kind. Not even deadly force would be able to take away gun rights in America because they would run out of idiots.


  15. Paul Colapietro

    So Larry; What are you going to do when Trump becomes President??? Are you going to say “I’ll move out of this country” like a few of your kind already said. What we legal Gun owners say Bye Bye to you and all others. Trump is winning left and right by a landslide.


  16. Ha! Do you really like those two things? Watch us.


  17. Uninteresting rant. Gun possession is no more a right than bomb ownership. It is a legal privilege that we common sense citizens can and will remove eventually. Get used to the idea or you will just be progressively angrier person.


    • Paul Colapietro

      When guns are taken away is the same day freedom of speech will be taken away. Guess what neither will be taken away.


    • THE 2ND AMENDMENT IS ONE RIGHT UNDER THE CONSTITUTION FOR THE LAWFUL CITIZEN TO OWN AND CARRY A GUN. How is this a PRIVILEGE? Getting a driver’s license is a privilege, not a right. YOU MUST BE A CHILD. go back to sleep, kiddie.


      • Larry knows this already he is a Troll senthey by Bloomberg and his cronies. Larry is the problem with Americas education system common core standards take away common sense and call it common sense. These libtards have no idea what’s really going on the sheeple creation system is making sheeple so fast.


    • Hey, Larry. Have you been watching/reading the news lately? Have you taken notice of the things happening in DC? How about the rest of the country?

      Gun control is being bum-rushed out with little to no ceremony. More and more people are buying firearms and carrying them for self defense. State after state is passing constitutional carry laws, allowing people to exercise their right to keep and bear arms without hindrance for the first time in decades. Colleges are allowing concealed carry by their students.

      And crime is dropping everywhere! Even in big cities, crime is (at the worst) staying at the same level it was last year.

      Don’t these facts just make you want to pull your hair out? I mean, where’s a good mass shooting when you just need to feel like you’re right? A mall with 20 or 30 dead would be perfect, wouldn’t it, Larry? Just got to have some more bodies to gloat over and beat the drum, driving the fear into the ignorant.

      “Damn those little bastard called “facts”! If it wasn’t for them, I would be right!” Right, Larry?


  18. What pisses me off is the second amendment is a right not a privilege and some asshole makes a movie or remarks to teach our younger kids that gun rights can be taken away and some unconstitutional law can take away your rights. Well I always say it’s still in my hand and all isn’t lost. I will not obey any unconstitutional laws or any law that infringes on any of my rights. Only an idiot blames the tools used to kill and not the persons who did the kilking. On one has the right to take away my right to defend myself but they do have the right to make me defend myself and kill them . The rich assholes should be boycotted in all americans homes stop supporting these anti American culture freaks they have already banned god and jesus and free speech if they get the second amendment then everyone else will be a slave. It’s a fact everything you do will be used to convince everyone your crazy and should have a gun. Or you’re a terrorist for wanting one. The masses ate sheeple and they listen to the master TV and what TV says goes.


  19. The actors on this list include many who make their millions by acting in violent movies that portray and promote violence, much of the time, with the use of guns. Many of the others, actors, politicians, etc. either carry guns or have armed guards to protect them. They are hypocrites and other things that I don’t need to mention, you all know what they are. “Guns for me, but not for you,” is their message. They are elite, the mere peons who supply them with their money do not have a right to own a gun.


    • I agree with you! If you are anti-gun then don’t do a movie wielding a gun to make millions. It not only makes you look like a hypocrite but and idiot for not standing your ground on what it is you’re against! If I was a vegetarian I would be eating a burger in a fast food commercial!!! Protect our Second Amendment rights!!!! I will always own and carry until the day I die!


  20. Glad to see the list. There are a few disappointments on here.. I will be sure to adjust my movie, music & other business accordingly.


  21. I would rather to be able to defend myself and not have to, than have to and not be able to. A no brainer the way I see it.


  22. I am a former state trooper who took an oath to defend the us constitution. I believe everyone has the right to defend themselves as well as their families. There are 15 known terrorist cells that practice their tactics here in the US today. I tell people the police cannot protect you 7×24. They maybe 20-50 minutes away?? Therefore you are on your own until they arrive. However owning and using a firearm is a big responsibility. You need to know how to safely use one. It is a tool just as a power saw, kitchen knife, etc. I have seen more deaths by automobiles than firearms in 12 years of my career as a law enforcement officer. It is an ever changing world and we need to act rationally and consider the risks of todays society. There are “wolves” at the gate (home invasions, terrorists, etc.). Stay smart and stay safe.
