Stand for the Second is a student led, student driven movement organizing walkouts at high schools across America on May 2, 2018, to stand for the Second Amendment.
Will you join us this week in supporting the work these students are doing?
First, if you have not done so already, please sign our petition supporting the Second Amendment. And be sure to share it with your friends and family on social media.
Next, please read our Stand for the Second webpage carefully and consider sharing with any high schoolers you know. It is not too late to register a new event, or to participate in an existing event.
Finally, please consider chipping in $22 to help us with our activities on the 2nd. Your generous donation will help us reach even more students, train more organizers, and help these liberty-minded students take a stand for our cherished Second Amendment. Your donation will help us pay for last-minute resources and provide training for students over the next few days.
On Capitol Hill, people are already wondering who will replace Ryan as speaker after he announced he wouldn’t seek reelection after this term. Congressman Jim Jordan from Ohio has begun to show interest in a run for speaker. He was the founding chairman of the House Freedom Caucus and he’s always fighting for conservative solutions, even when it is against his own party’s “leadership.” We’d like to encourage him to make a run, and we encourage you to sign our petition in support of Jim Jordan for Speaker.
Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund is proud to announce our endorsements of Patrick Morrisey for US Senate in West Virginia and Kevin Nicholson for US Senate in Wisconsin. We believe that these two men will be great conservative additions to the US Senate and we hope you’ll join us in helping both of them win their elections.
As you know, there’s a lot that needs to be fixed in Washington, DC, but one of the biggest obstacles we have is the US Senate. Oftentimes, legislation goes to the Senate to die or worse, it becomes much more liberal because of the razor thin, extremely moderate Republican majority.
This is a wonderful opportunity to improve our stock in the Senate and continue our mission of increasing personal freedom, economic freedom, and creating a debt-free future for our kids and grandkids.
We’ve launched our Social Media Minute Men. This will be an active group of social media warriors working to respond to the left’s heinous attacks on conservative voices. Sign up today!

Our friends at the Heritage Foundation have done extensive research on the relationship of guns in society, ways to improve safety in our schools, and some of the questions we should be asking to try to prevent these tragedies from happening in the future. We’re happy to pass these resources along to you and encourage you to visit their website at https://www.heritage.org/school-safety to read more information.
Facts and Figures:
- Firearms are used in self-defense hundreds of thousands of times each year in the United States.

- Over 90% of public mass shootings take place in “gun-free zones,” where civilians are not permitted to carry firearms. This statistic proves how ineffective liberal gun-control laws are.
