We want to hear about organizations that deserve to be recognized, so if you know of a community organization that you believe is doing excellent work on behalf of the broader firearms community that you’d like to see recognized, drop us a line!

We’ve got a great one for you this week!

North Carolina Firearms Coalition

This week, we’re pleased to award the North Carolina Firearms Coalition as our community organization of the week.

Recognized as North Carolina’s ONLY No Compromise Second Amendment Organization, they are dedicated to defending and advancing the Second Amendment rights of all law abiding citizens in the state of North Carolina.

They’re passionate about gun rights, and believe that for far too politicians in North Carolina have campaigned as being pro-gun at election time only to do little or nothing to advance gun rights once safely in office in Raleigh.

In order to achieve their mission,The North Carolina Firearms Coalition creates petitions, stays up to date with the latest information in politics to support candidates whose values align, and even help support bills and laws that their members would benefit from. They also offer up detailed information about North Carolina’s gun laws so all citizens can stay up to date. Further more, they’re in a tight knit community of fellow gun rights organizations, offering mutual support and advancing gun rights well outside their local communities.

Needless to say, that no matter what views anyone holds, political action is a community affair, and helping all citizens have a voice through organization, information sharing, and more is certainly worthy of recognition.
