The Second Amendment Foundation Group Joins Larger International Movement

March 22, 2010 by  

The Second Amendment Foundation group joins larger international movement The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) has announced that it is now part of a new international organization whose goal is the protection of firearms rights for private citizens.

Named the International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR), the organization met last week in Nuremberg, Germany and brought together gun rights activists from several countries, including Sweden, Norway, Germany, the UK, Canada, Italy and the United States under the banner of Liberty and Security.

“Self-defense is a human right that is not just limited to citizens of the United States thanks to our Second Amendment,” said Alan Gottlieb, SAF executive vice president who also serves as an IAPCAR director.

“This is an important ‘first step’ in regaining much lost ground, and putting the brakes on an international movement to strip private citizens of the means to protect their most cherished right, that of self-defense,” he added.

SAF representatives have also expressed encouragement that after the Germany meeting, groups from countries such as the Philippines, Switzerland, Belgium, Argentina, Finland, India, Israel, Greece, South Africa and Australia are also interested in joining.
