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. Not necessary. This is just too simple an issue


  2. It is official. You don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. Next time you make a broad statement like “A lot more people are killed by gun carrying citizens than criminals…” Back it up with proof. Where did your “statistics” come from? Post a link here so you can prove your point if there is any real validity to it.

    You used to amuse me with your blatant discrimination and pathetic hate speech. Now it just saddens me. Please, post more name calling hate speech like you did on Saturday so you can clearly prove my point. Small minds resort to name calling when they have no better argument or debate to offer. There are no statistics to validate any of the comments you have left here. I’m open to looking at any statistics you come up with that would support your point of view if you can produce some valid ones. Otherwise I will again await your next vitriolic spewing of non-facts and uneducated speculation on the topic of guns and gun ownership.


  3. Wow…you watch too many action movies. None of your scenarios are worth consideration. We’ll take guns from criminals too…this is a long-term play that would take many years to accomplish but we can do it if we choose to. A lot more people are killed by gun carrying citizens than criminals, and many are killed by accident. There’s no sensible reason for our citizens to have guns and ammo in our homes.


  4. Thanks for the clarification…but the differences are not important. They all need to go.


    • Okay, now let’s take this another step, you want to take guns away from law abiding citizens, so then, only the police and criminals (and the military which is against the law – Posse Comitatus Act – to be used against civilians) and the National Guard (which varies from state to state, but is usually a fairly small number) left with guns.Seeing how the police and National Guard are around 1% of our society, and the criminal element is around 10-20% depending on location (the larger in big cities).
      Who do you think will protect those without guns?? Ask a criminal sometime what he fears… it’s not the police, there aren’t aren’t enough to effect what he does, it’s the armed civilians that help keep him at bay…
      So, we do you little social experiment, the gangs run rampant, and take over the cities, killing the police and a lot of their inhabitants… (and yes, probably you) will it have been worth it?? Then also that little factor, What was the ONE reason Japan did not even attempt to attack the main land US during WW2?? I’ll give you minute, get a History Book… Because there would be an armed civilian behind every blade of grass…
      You want to take that security away also?? China and Russia would LOVE it !!
      The armed population of the US is the largest standing army in the world…
      But then, who cares?? I mean you’ve thought all this through and don’t care what the outcome is anyway… Haven’t you??


  5. It’s astonishing that you NRA folks can’t understand the difference between acting and actually murdering people with assault rifles.


    • Actually it’s more amazing to me that you are on here mentioning “and actually murdering people with assault rifles” without knowing the definition of an assault rifle. There have been almost ZERO deaths in the history of the US (murders) outside of gangland executions (machine guns), that have used “Assault rifles”.
      They are just semi-auto rifles like any other, only they are black… are you just prejudiced or something??
      For future reference so you don’t continue in your ignorance, “Assault Rifles” are military rifles for the most that have “select fire” capabilities that allows them to fire a rate of bullets that is MORE THAN ONE, for every trigger pull. Every gun used in all these publicized events are only semi-auto’s, one trigger pull, one bullet… sorry to disappoint you.


  6. Seriously?


  7. You’re just upset about the Supreme Court ruling. Another win over backwoods inbred gun toting bible thumping NRA members. It’s just a matter of time before we take your guns away.


  8. I wish you made some good points to comment on. But none.


  9. Wow you really brainwashed aren’t you. There isn’t any rational argument for gun support, just misguided selfishness. There’s nothing to study needed…it’s just so obvious to everyone but the NRA sheep. You act like gun ownership is some sort of fundamental right. It’s just a hobby with a lethal weapon. Simple. Do away with them.


    • Actually, I think you just broke the idiotic/ignorant/stupidity trifecta with that one Larry…
      Let’s start at the top…
      #1 WE are brainwashed because we aren’t sheep and will willingly give up our right to defend ourselves and our property from those that would take it… interesting concept, but you are definitely wrong on that one… (you might want to check a mirror for the one brainwashed here).
      #2 “There isn’t any rational argument for gun support, just misguided selfishness.” Really? Tell that to those around the world who gave up their guns then were killed… (but you don’t want to bring that part up do you?)… What about hunting? Sport shooting? Wow, there are three RATIONAL arguments for pretty much anybody with common sense (and I haven’t even hit the 2A because it’s coming).
      #3 ” There’s nothing to study needed” did we miss school that day they were teaching English??
      #4 “it’s just so obvious to everyone but the NRA sheep.” Once again, did you miss math day at school, or are you incapable of using the internet?? The NRA has a little over 5 million members. there over 150 million gun owners in the United States, guns outnumber people in every state in the union… maybe it’s not just those silly NRA people??
      #5 “You act like gun ownership is some sort of fundamental right.” Well, yes it is, common sense and even the very laws of nature make it a right to defend oneself, life, family and property from those that would take it with any means necessary… the “tools” used to do that have evolved through time to equal those that would take those things from us. It would be silly to try to defend oneself against an attacker with a gun with a knife, a stick, or a rock. And then there is Second Amendment that DOES give us that right.
      #6 “It’s just a hobby with a lethal weapon.” I’m not sure this can even be addressed it’s so ignorant and stupid.
      #7 “Simple. Do away with them.” I have a much better idea, and it’s actually so filled with common sense I’m sure it will fly right over your head… If you don’t want to own a gun, DON’T… That way people like you that are incapable of helping themselves, or others will let those that are do their job without interruption from people like you. Problem fixed…


    • Sir, with every post you add to this string you prove unequivocally that YOU are the epitome of the brainwashed sheeple. Enjoy life in your gilded bubble and keep amusing me with your poorly constructed rhetoric. I can’t wait to read what pathetic non-response you come up with next. I look forward to the comic relief.


    • I am a former Police Officer with members of the Aryan Brotherhood looking for me. Now that I’m no longer a Police Officer I have to abide by conceal carry laws.


  10. I’m just one of the many who will take your guns away eventually.

    Funny, this thread seems to have gotten pretty quiet after the South Carolina mass gun murders. He used birthday gift money to buy a glock…see how easy you made that for him?


    • Well said.


    • Well, to be honest YOU won’t take my guns away, because you don’t have the balls or the spine to do it.
      You’ll send someone else. What, pray tell, will you tell his fatherless children to convince them they now live in a better world?


    • There are two conflicting stories about how he acquired the weapon he used. Both stories published by separate media outlets. Neither has been proven accurate yet but both rampant with hearsay. Perhaps both scenarios should be discussed rather than simply latching on to the one that supports your own rhetoric. Either way you look at it the discussion should center around the pathetic mental health programs in this country and how to keep guns away from the ones who intend to do harm rather than those who intend to defend themselves from those who would do harm. But then it is obvious that you are only here to ruffle feathers and incite discontent. Seems like the politicking is reminiscent of the divide and conquer philosophy.

      Before you spew inaccuracies you should perhaps research your facts regarding gun violence in this country and where that violence regularly occurs. You will have to actually research it rather than depending on media outlets to feed it to you. They only report what is sensational and attention grabbing while completely disregarding the lives lost daily in the cities and states with the tightest gun control laws. Argue with those victim’s families how “gun-control” saved the lives of their loved ones. Careful though, you might hear something you don’t like. Facts that might just counter your obviously media driven commentary.

      If you aren’t comfortable with the freedoms this country offers it’s citizens then I’m sure there are many other countries out there that would happily accept you as a citizen.

      …and I can’t wait for your vitriolic verbal lashing. Par for the course I’m sure.


    • You do realize that gun owners will not give up their guns willingly? Idiot….


  11. 1SG Dan Smith

    Reading the list of those who use weapons in movies to turn a buck but want to ban ours how pathetic greed is. If they do ban guns what kind of movies will they make then??


    • Dan I agree, and Liam Neeson who is now an American citizen is in favor or British style gun control was left off the list.


  12. Some people just have no clue what it is to be American. Taking away rights from people that were granted to them as part of the creation of this country is completely un-American. If you don’t believe in owning a gun do not own a gun, but don’t try to take away guns from people who do. Next you will want to take away bibles from people who believe in god because you do not believe… Completely un-American! As a side note, I do not believe in god, I do believe in abortion, gay marriage and the Constitution of the United States of America. I can also honestly say that I’d rather be killed with a gun than a knife, hammer, rock or baseball bat.


    • You’re a homo


      • William,
        BRILLIANT !! Of all the witty retorts you could have possibly come up with, with all of those crafty comebacks available, with all that knowledge in your brain to prove your point, I am glad to (but not amazed) to see that response. It tells volumes about you.


    • Correction – they are not rights GRANTED at the time the country was founded – they are unalienable natural rights which the bill of rights is designed to PROTECT – you have the rights regardless, the bill of rights is ordering the government to not infringe them and thereby provides a mechanism for the courts to keep illegal laws from restricting them


    • Wes that’s just not in the anti-gun mentality. I am a gun owner and a concealed carry permit holder, I agree if you don’t want to own a gun don’t own a gun I am okay with that. Not all but a large percentage of people that don’t like guns do not want anyone to have them.


  13. MOLON LABE!!


  14. You don’t sound like someone who should be anywhere near a gun. Thanks for making my point so eloquently.


    I am a 40% VA rated Combat Veteran of ( 2005-2006 )Operation Iraqi Freedom.
    I am awaiting another VA claim from Jul 2012
    I have a CCW permit.
    I have been working for KRoger co as a Butcher, for Over 28 yrs. I have been Demoted 2 times due to my Physical injuries, I am no longer able to do the job I did before I went to Iraq.
    I believe my Problems Started after my Mgr told Me to “TAKE that SH$T off your hat!!! THAT SH$T is an OIF Combat Veteran ribbons and a USA Flag pin and my Wounded Warrior Project Alumni pin!!!
    I asked him to Apologize and he said “NO” I went to His boss and She said “ITS JUST A FLAG and PINS”
    I was recently transferred to a new location because my supervisor (of 3 months time) had a problem with me confronting him on referring to me as a PATHETIC CRIPPLE and being LAZY, I also came to the aide of some part-time employee’s.
    I have been at the previous location since 2008 with 2 different supervisor’s and 3 different store manager’s with NO PROBLEMS.
    I am at the new location less than 3 weeks and I am terminated for being a Verbal Threat to Customer’s ,Management staff & Fellow employee’s! I talked about a video game called Assassins’ Creed, I also was overheard asking a fellow hunting enthusiast “I like to go to the shooting range (in the winter because I cant ride my Motorcycle) after a bad day at work, would you like to join me?”
    I am asking for some help in Who to contact. They are treating me like I am going to SNAP from a PERCEIVED PTSD!!!
    The KRoger co wants ALL of my MILITARY, VA and Private Medical records.
    Do you have any ideas? Do you know of ANY JAG (Ret) officers that might be able to HELP ME?
    This ALL took place on 22 FEB 2014.
    I went through mediation in DEC 2014 with the UFCW Union and the KRoger co. I was portrayed as a Bat@#$% Crazy person that would SNAP & KILL these 2 people, ALL their relatives, and neighbors, do to the PERCEIVED PTSD!
    Well I guess the Kurt Busch Family NOW KNOW’S What My family has been going Through!!!
    I have been informed the KRoger co has RETALIATED by Demoting a few of My Supporters!
    Thanks for your time.

    Scott “FireBall”


  16. Look at all these hypocrite actors and some aren’t even US citizens.

    I’m so glad my favorite actors are not on this list. It’d be a real shame to stop supporting their careers.


    • Cypress unfortunately I like a few of the actors and musicians on the list, if fact I came looking for a list (not necessarily this list) of actors that support gun control.


  17. You REALLY need an edit button on this page. Get one please!


  18. There is no God and we will take your silly guns away eventually. Get used to the idea.


    • You will not you athiest.


    • I keep wondering how if you outlaw guns, who will come take them from those that have them??
      Are you proposing that a tyrannical government comes and by force takes the guns of law abiding citizens, probably starting a civil war, and killing millions and millions of people??
      And that is your proposal to stop the killing of around 50 innocent people each year by guns??
      Please, quick, do the math, how does the killing of millions of innocent law abiding citizens reduce that number?? it seems to me that would take thousands and thousands of years for your idea to be anything but the worst “fix” ever in the history of the world.
      You make OUR case why liberals are lunatics…


    • If there isn’t a God, why do liberals keep bringing Him up?

      I bet you’re a card carrying member of the Church of Global Warming and you hashtag AllLivesMatter while simultaneously hash tagging #abortion.

      You fascist liberals are in dire need of a real platform…other than spreading lies and hating on a God you don’t believe in.


    • Fuck off and die larry


    • You will never be able to take guns away from criminals..that is one of the reasons why law abiding Americans have the right to bear arms.Do your research and see what has happened historically when you disarm the public…horrific events including genocide…I guess you would like to see your government have absolute control.


    • hahahaha boy do you have a lot to learn!


  19. Larry you have socialist vakues, we the people have God given right and to live free is one of them. You and the rest of the far left have NO RIGHT telling honest hard working people that they cant own guns.


  20. Man Larry, I’m happy you’re not king. And BTW, you can have my gun when you pry it from my cold dead hands!


  21. Yes, born near Oakland. Go A’s!


  22. Incorrect. Rights are what a society decides they are. We in the USA agree on a lot of rights that we are proud of and that’s great. But it is a constantly evolving set of rights and we have a political process to change them as needed as we evolve as people. We all have a say in that through our votes. I have traveled to more than 75 countries and I have basic respect for people in all of them…we’re not that much different really. I consider this country home and am happy to live here because we can change things like gun laws when we need to…like now.


    • So, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness are just a gift ? Freedom of speech, unreasonable search and seizure, taken your possessions without due process, those things are all okay to you??And only because you allow them??
      You have some messed up thinking man…


    • Just interested, you say “I consider this country home”, are you a US citizen? Where were you raised??


  23. Okay, I missed a few comments here, but caught yours Larry, “Who do you think “them” is? It is us…the voting citizens and there is nothing to stop us from taking rights away as it should be.”
    Who you think gives you rights?? Rights aren’t given by people… they are inherent to them, you can’t take them away, you can enslave people… and imprison them, and take their rights away, but then they are no longer free… others control their lives, that is the world you want? Where others run your life? Then please, go to a country that lives like that, and see how fast you return… (if they let you)…


  24. Who do you think “them” is? It is us…the voting citizens and there is nothing to stop us from taking rights away as it should be.


  25. They don’t have them because we don’t allow them to…as we should do for guns.


    • You are obviously a liberal which tells me your opinion is not one that has
      any worth discussing. You can try but will definitely lose any anti-gun argument
      here or at the national level. So enjoy the stench of defeat. I am know I am!
      Also, Freud said that those who fear weapons are developmentally immature.
      That definitely describes you and ALL the other liberals.
