sai kicks off national students for self-defense tour

On Wednesday, September 5, Students for Self-Defense a project of the Second Amendment Institue, launched it's national college campus tour at West Chester University. 

Students for Self-Defense educates, recruits, and activates college students to overturn harmful and oppressive anti-self-defense policies on their college campus. 

In 2018, more than 50% of America's top 100 universities experienced extreme hikes in crime on campus. Yet these same universities continue to oppress and victimize their students through restrictive self-defense policies, such as pepper spray bans.

While West Chester University's S4SD chapter is thriving, the national organization still needs your help to continue the national tour, and bring an end to harmful policies. 

With the help of the Leadership Institute's Field Representative for Pennsylvania, Seven Surack, more than 120 WCU Rams signed up for their chapter of S4SD.

The tragic death of Mollie Tibbetts reminds us that we must continue to fight for self-defense rights.

As citizens must work to prevent such tragedies.

Mollie was a college student at the University of Iowa, residing in a state that does not allow her to carry a concealed weapon at the age of 20, and furthermore does not allow campus carry.

In a world that the radical left wants to continue to allow in illegal immigrants, like the one that murdered Mollie, and destroy our hardworking law enforcement, now more than ever we need to fight for our God-given right to self-defense.

The Second Amendment Institute extends its deepest condolences to Mollie Tibbetts's family and joins the nation in mourning.

sai joins patriot picket to defend 2a against march 4 our lives gun grabbers at nra hq

On Saturday, 8/4, your Second Amendment Institute joined Maryland's Patriot Picket, and took on the face of tyranny head on. March 4 Our Lives, a national gun-control organization funded by billionaire bullies Michael Bloomberg and George Soros, gathered at the NRA Headquarters in Fairfax, VA in protest against the NRA. Ironically, the building was completely empty. 

SAI and the Patriot Picket shined the light of freedom into the face of darkness by engaging freedom hating gun-grabbers. SAI President Tyler Yzaguirre and Board Member Dick Heller spoke to more than a dozen gun-control advocates in order to find out where the stood on the gun issue. The overwhelming majority of those who Tyler and Dick spoke to, said they want complete disarmament of law-abiding citizens. 

Fairfax County Police set up unconstitutional DMZ and free speech zones, and threatened to arrest those who crossed the border more than once after 12pm. 

Patriot Picket leader Jeff Hulbert was arrested in the DMZ zone, for exercising his Constitutional right to freedom of speech under the First Amendment. His court date is 8/28.

sai supports judge kavanaugh for u.s. supreme court

SAI stands with President Trump and his selection for nominee to the United States Supreme Court. Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a true defender of the Constitution and will protect our Second Amendment rights. 

His history of defending our Constitutional rights has been unmatched since Justice Antonin Scalia. 

Throughout his judicial career, Judge Kavanaugh has ruled on a number of Second Amendment-related cases during his time on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, which included a detailed account agreeing with Heller from D.C. v. Heller (2008).

In 2011, when Heller brought another challenge to the city involving the AR-15 ban, Kavanaugh dissented from the majority and agreed with Heller. “In my judgment, both D.C.’s ban on semi-automatic rifles and its gun registration requirement are unconstitutional under Heller.” 

"Brett Kavanaugh is the right man for the job. He’ll bring with him a much needed refresh button to an out-of-date system, with Justices who refuse to uphold the Constitution. Justice Scalia, who wrote the magnificent Heller decision, would be proud.” - Dick Heller
