The Institute for Legislative Action

As the lobbying arm of NRA, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is dedicated to any issue affecting firearms ownership and use. ILA works to defeat restrictive gun control legislation, to pass pro-gun reform legislation, and to educate the public about the facts concerning gun ownership.

We the People undersigned here, do hereby declare our solemn commitment to our unalienable individual rights, as bestowed by our Creator as the birthright of all free people, as set down by America’s Founding Fathers in the Bill of Rights, and as enshrined by the Framers in the Constitution of the United States of America:

Freedom of speech. Freedom of religion. Freedom of assembly. Freedom to petition our government for redress of grievances. The right to privacy and security in our persons, houses, papers and effects. The right to trial by jury. And all the individual freedoms set down in the Bill of Rights – which were won and are now guaranteed by Americans’ first freedom: the Second Amendment right of the people to keep and bear arms to defend themselves, their families, their nation and their freedom.

To secure these rights, we hereby put our duly elected representatives on notice that through our voices, through our votes and through every lawful means necessary to defend them, we will STAND AND FIGHT.
