The Liberty First Foundation and Religion of Arms fully believe that the Second Amendment is a protection of a natural right that everyone has. This right of self-protection does not see race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, wealth, status or anything else.

We all have this natural right and we all deserve to have this right protected from any that wish to deprive us of this right.
