About Us

The 2nd Amendment Patriots is a grassroots gun rights activists group that started in January of 1999. It's a very informal organization of local residents and family members who enjoy firearms.

Out of frustration over ever-increasing gun control and continual erosion of fundamental Constitutional guaranteed Liberties and Freedoms, this group of people has become extremely politically active at local, state and federal levels.

The 2nd Amendment Patriots were featured in the NRA Rifleman magazine, (September, 1999 issue p.25) complete with picture, for entering a float in the Evansville, Indiana. Freedom Festival parade that year to bring attention to the sport of guns and gun ownership.

Besides participating in parades this group has also celebrated the Bill Of Rights Day in a big way drawing media attention from TV, Radio and Print. The purpose is to fan the flames of interest in preserving our Constitution and Bill Of Rights.

Especially active politically, over the years this group of ordinary citizens working together united have been influential in changing state gun laws in Indiana, repealing a gun law and introducing pro gun legislation.

Some of our members themselves have run for office both on the local and state level.

Over the years we have had elected officials and candidates for office (governor, senator, representative, sheriff and all offices in between including federal) attend our meetings to establish our position on the Right To Keep and Bear Arms.

The NRA/ILA awarded the 2nd Amendment Patriots with the Grassroots Organization of the Year 2000.

Being featured in different gun publications over the years has allowed others, by virtue of e-mail, around the Country to join us and STAY UNITED and now with this web site our hope it to continue to inspire others to guard against those threats that seek to destroy our Bill Of Rights.

Our meetings are at 6 PM at the West Side Sportsman's Club. The West Side Sportsman’s Club is located on the west side of Evansville about 2 1⁄2 miles north of the W. Lloyd Expressway (SR62) at 1000 N. Peerless Road (just North of the railroad tracks). We meet the last Saturday of every month.

We do not charge membership dues.
