Please read this carefully. We have never needed your help more than we need it now!

Dear Friend,

Last year, in a historic decision, the U.S. Supreme Court clearly proclaimed that the Second Amendment is an individual right.

Not a collective right. Not a right of the "militia." A right of each American citizen.

You might think that would have ended the debate, but it didn't. Even after this decision, local governments around the country pretended that the protection of individual Second Amendment rights applied only to the federal government, not to the states or cities.

This is one reason why cities like Cleveland and Chicago continue to infringe individual rights with draconian gun bans and unreasonable regulations aimed squarely at law-abiding citizens.

As is so often the case, the only way to fight against such unconstitutional behavior is to file a lawsuit and win.

That's why now, a little more than one year later, America's highest court has again taken up a Second Amendment case.

This time they seek to answer the question: Do states and cities have to honor the Second Amendment rights of citizens?

The answer is obvious to you and me. The right of free speech is honored everywhere. The right of religious freedom knows no state boundaries. Every city honors the right to be free of unreasonable search and seizure.

Every right affirmed by the Constitution is accepted in every municipality and in all 50 states without question. So why would the Second Amendment be any different?

Such a simple concept appears to be beyond the understanding of some in this country.

So we plan to participate in another Supreme Court case that we hope will answer this question once and for all and force every state and local government to acknowledge the Second Amendment as the clear and inalienable right that the Founding Fathers intended.

Our part in this case is the same as it was last year. To research, write, print, and submit an official amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court. This brief will lay out an argument to inform and persuade the justices.

We were successful last year. And we hope to be successful this year.

But the task is daunting. The timeline is short. The costs are high. And our Foundation simply doesn't have the money to proceed.

In short, we need to raise $30,000 within 7 weeks to pay for high-level legal research, trips to Washingon D.C. for Ken Hanson (our legal council), special and expensive printing of the brief, and more.

(UPDATE: We've raised $25,000 so far. We need $5,000 in the next 5 days to meet our goal!)

Can you help? We need it. And we need it immediately.
