NRA University

If we are going to make sure the next generation takes up the battle to protect our rights, we need to do some work educating them on the 2nd Amendment. Lord knows they don't get it in public schools.

Well, NRA-ILA's Grassroots Division has a program called NRA University to do just that. NRA-ILA is targeting college students with this innovative program that brings NRA staff to college campuses and conducts a one-day training session where participants learn the facts about the gun control debate and what they can do to promote the Second Amendment on and off campus.

Once such session was held on April 23rd at NRA HQ. A student from the The Catholic University of America in the D.C. area wrote this article in his student newspaper about how the session he attended opened his eyes to what the 2nd Amendment means. Here's what he said about the session:

Since this event I am proud to see both a renewed interest in the issue of 2nd Amendment civil rights on campus and a more visible show of support for gun rights here at CUA. You can hardly walk through the Pryz without bumping into someone wearing a NRA U t-shirt or grab lunch without hearing people talking (in some cases arguing) about the trip last weekend.

Sounds like the NRA-ILA Grassroots staff hit on a great idea when they created NRA-U.
