At a recent meeting of Alabama Gun Rights/Alabama Open Carry; we were introduced to Ladies for the Second Amendment (Facebook). Ladies-for-the-Second Amendment is a grassroots movement founded by Amanda Cassebaum-Chase of Montgomery, Alabama, Marla Stratton of Florida, and Morgan Shuta Barton. These diligent defenders of the Second Amendment consider it more of a close knit Facebook friend page. Here Second Amendment minded women (and men) can get informed and mobilize grassroots responses to anti-self defense gun control measures.
Amanda states that she was raised on a farm and grew up shooting/hunting with her father and brothers. She was taught to shoot responsibly from the age of 7. Her father was in the U.S. Navy for 8 years which gave her a deep respect for the military, our nation, and the rights we enjoy. God bless her and all she does for the Constitution.
Their decision to form Ladies-for-the-Second Amendment came about following the knee jerk, anti-freedom reactions of liberals to the Newtown shootings. The malicious efforts of out of touch progressive elitists to demonize firearms owners and trample the Constitution was their driving motivation. They currently sit at 600 plus and growing members including Alabama Secretary of State Beth Chapman.
Their noble efforts to preserve our freedom have been recognized by U.S. Senator Ted Cruz. Great job ladies; keep on keeping on in the fight for what is right. Thank you for standing firm on the Second Amendment and the right to self defense afforded us by our Creator and written down by our Founders.
The decision to form Ladies-for-the-Second Amendment came about as a the knee jerk reaction to the Newtown shooting. The efforts of out of touch elitists like President Obama, Senator Dianne Feinstein, etc…..to trample over the Second Amendment rights of the law abiding was their driving force. Thank you for all you do.
The Ladies-for-the-Second Amendment aren’t looking for fame. They want to awaken the sleeping giant that is the American people to the all out liberal assault on their rights and the very Constitution itself. They are striving to preserve the Constitution for future generations.
These noble ladies stand as a shining example against the foot in mouth disease rhetoric of Sen. Feinstein. Her press conferences claimed women were somehow too inept or irresponsible to use firearms for self defense. Senator Feinstein must be completely unaware of the brave women who wear the uniform of our Armed Forces.
She should come down from her her Ivory Tower from time to time to see how things operate in the real world. These women consider it degrading and insulting that these liberal mouthpieces suggest civilized women “urinate” on themselves as a defense against rape and assault.
The Ladies of Ladies-for-the-Second Amendment are competent citizens who own and responsibly use firearms. They will no longer remain silent as their God given right to defend themselves and their their loved ones are threatened. They are highly educated and motivated women who know how to shoot, enjoy shooting, know their rights, and dare to stand up to any who threaten their rights.
Though started by ladies they accept men who want to add their voices to their efforts. Their membership is currently 50/50 men and women. They are a Christian based organization but welcome any who want to exercise their First to protect their Second. Anyone who refuses to stand idly by while the rights of 99.8% law abiding are violated because of the actions of a miniscule minority of felons.
“A group of ladies who collectively and collaboratively agree to support and defend the Constitution-specifically, the 2nd Amendment right. We believe our Second Amendment is currently in jeopardy. Therefore, as our Constitution has protected and defended u s for over 200 years, she needs our help defending her today.”
Please note that our original “Founding Mothers” represent each state in the Southeast. But we are hoping to grow by representing all 50 states. Our mutual interest and goals of this group is to protect ourselves, our families, and our country, if needed.
Each founding member is a well-educated and independent female with a common goal of protecting our right to bear arms. Several founding members do not own guns – it’s the principle of the matter.
Also we are mothers, wives, employees, patriotic Americans, law abiding citizens, and most importantly – we are Christians!
God bless the USA!
All citizens male and female are encouraged to add your voices to this grassroots effort to secure the Second Amendment from the misguided liberal assault. Do not sit idly by as your freedoms wane away. Speak out now for tomorrow may be too late. Join with Ladies for the Second Amendment and make some noise. Thank you Ladies for all you do…keep up the great job.
