Default Guns & Money Intro and Purpose

The 'Guns & Money” forum has been created in an effort to help the public understand the truth behind organizational funding and spending. The purpose of this forum is simple, transparency and access. CGN is gathering information from multiple sources, but we ask you to help CGN obtain and share information about the groups listed here too. This forum includes information for both pro-Second Amendment organizations and for anti-Second Amendment gun control groups. It is important for donors to understand how the money is being used. Remember the saying “follow the money?”

This forum will have three sections.

SECTION ONE is RESOURCES section that will provide information on how to evaluate a non profit organization.

SECTION TWO has information about PRO 2A Groups.

If you're a member of a civil rights organization that says it is defending our Second Amendment rights you're going to be asked to give money to finance that fight. If you're a member of CGN or any other pro 2A discussion community you're going to hear claims about the various organizations that represent, or claim to represent, us and to fight for our rights. This forum allows you to make decisions on who and what to support by posting financial and other documents for each of the groups and through posting any analysis found on these groups and their activities. Information on best practices that should be followed by all groups will allow you to determine who is using your money most effectively.

SECTION THREE has information on ANTI 2A GROUPS

Information on the activities and spending of the anti-Second Amendment gun control groups is available too. Every day we hear about the big bad “gun lobby.” We all know that the gun control crowd is spending millions of dollars, but that never seems to be tracked thoroughly. Now all of those documents will be in one place with analysis on where that spending is going as it becomes available. This information will help in the public debate and headed into the next election cycle.

In either case, you as a gun owner, activist, donor or volunteer deserve to know about the finances of the various organizations working for us and arrayed against us. At least, as much as is legally made public and verified by documentation.

The two sub forums, 'Pro 2A' and 'Anti 2A' are primarily 'Read Only', there is limited posting of threads or replies unless new/current documentation is uploaded the moderator. This forum is open to all for the discussion of the data in the two sub-forums.

No organization that asks for your money should have any objection to you knowing as much as is legal about how that money is used.

Knowledge is power and we're more powerful when we know about who we're working with and against.

This is still a work in progress but as it is 70% complete and in light of the current claims about the NRA I felt taking it live is necessary.

As stated this forum is about transparency, data is data and facts are facts they favor no one and should be taken as they are.
