Gun Owners Rights Group Funding


Tax-exempt second amendment focused organizations have become increasingly prevalent in recent years, as gun ownership and the debate surrounding gun rights continues to be a highly contested topic in the United States. These organizations, which are typically classified as 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) tax-exempt entities, engage in a range of activities aimed at advancing the interests of gun owners and promoting the second amendment. This can include lobbying efforts, political campaigning, educational initiatives, and community outreach programs.

First comparison is FPC, SAF & GOA:

Next comparison is FPC, CCRKBA, NASGW, SAF, GOA & NAGR:

While these organizations enjoy certain tax benefits, they are subject to regulations and reporting requirements set forth by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). As such, it is important for individuals and organizations involved in these activities to understand the legal and financial implications of tax-exempt status.
