BELLEVUE, WA – Nationally-recognized gun rights leader Alan Gottlieb is among several Second Amendment advocates named to the Trump campaign’s “Gun Owners for Trump” advisory panel, the Bellevue, Washington-based activist confirmed.

Gottlieb is chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, a grassroots Second Amendment advocacy organization with some 650,000 members and supporters across the country. He also founded the Second Amendment Foundation and serves as its executive vice president. SAF is a non-profit organization specializing in Second Amendment education and litigation.

The Gun Owners for Trump advisory board includes several well-known names in the firearms community including Olympic gold medalist Kim Rhode, plus Ronnie Barrett, CEO of Barrett Firearms; Rick Ector, CEO at the Firearms Academy of Detroit; Amy Robbins, CEO at Alexo Athletica and TV host; Lanny Barnes, American biathlete; retired Army Sgt. Major Kyle Lamb; Shooting competitor and instructor Gabby Franco; Eye on the Target radio host Amanda Suffecool; author and motivational speaker Marsha Petrie Sue; Neil Hogue, with Hogue Knives and firearms accessories, along with Matthew Gomez, Thibault Bowman, Mia Rhode, Barbara Rumpel, Esther Schneider, Beth Walker and Linda Walker.

“I’m delighted to serve on this important panel along with so many other devoted Second Amendment advocates,” Gottlieb said. “We’ve had time to examine Democrat Joe Biden’s extremist gun control plan—which he didn’t even mention during his acceptance speech—and it is truly alarming how his party is willing to turn a constitutional right into a tightly-regulated government controlled privilege.

“Donald Trump, on the other hand, has fulfilled one of his most important campaign pledges to America’s 100 million gun owners,” he continued. “The president has been filling federal court vacancies with experienced, constitutional judges who understand the Second Amendment means what it says.”

Gun Owners for Trump, according to its website, “will unite gun rights advocates in our mission to protect and defend our Second Amendment rights as enumerated by the Constitution of the United States.”

“With the election just over two months away,” Gottlieb said, “we’re going to work vigorously to see President Trump re-elected to a second term so he may finish the job he started, not only making America great again, but making the Second Amendment great again in the process.”
