If you think getting Citizens Of America's PRO-SELF DEFENSE, PRO-FIREARM
RADIO and PRINT ads out to the national public is a WASTE OF TIME, then you
disagree with every product manufacturer, every service company, every political
party, and every non-profit organization in the world.
In other words you are WRONG -- because advertising WORKS, whether its
toothpaste or fundamental philosophical issues.
And you're wrong at a critical time -- with ELECTIONS coming up.
OUR GOAL -- OUR METHODS
COA intends to radically change the public perception of guns and gun control
laws. How? The same way our enemies have changed this nation, politically
speaking, from pro-gun to anti-gun -- by utilizing the MASS COMMUNICATIONS
On the surface, COA ads are about the right to own and carry guns, but their
underlying message is about our natural right to self-defense, the impossibility
of 24-hour government crime protection, the empowerment of criminals by
disarming citizens, and about politicians elevating themselves above the people
they were elected to serve. These issues get under EVERYONE'S skin.

YOU WANTED IT, AND HERE IT IS
Heard this from a gun owner before? "We have all the facts, the
Constitution, and all the statistics on our side but the public never hears
them! If only the NRA would stop preaching to the choir and get a pro-gun
message out to the public, the political debate would change."
We heard it -- and said it -- too. So a group of dedicated activists founded
Citizens Of America for this very purpose.
COA created strong, emotional, and factual radio and print ads that hit the
gut and tell the TRUTH about how gun control endangers the public, especially
women. About how politicians hypocritically expect you to disarm while they are
protected 24 hours a day. About how criminals LOVE gun control.
We think the ads are VERY effective. OTHERS AGREE: pro-gun, pro-self-defense
radio station managers run them for free in many places. Volunteers across the
country are raising funds and running them locally. COA officers have been
interviewed dozens of times on talk shows about the organization and our ads

WHAT WE THOUGHT
Here's what COA founders thought: There are an estimated 80 million gun
owners in America. If every one of them contributed just $1 a year we'd have
least $80 million to run these ads across the country. In fact, if only one in a
HUNDRED gun owners contributed a single dollar a year, we would have $800,000 to
get the ads out.
But we've had to make do with less than a TENTH of that so far. Why? Because
most gun owners who donate to the pro-Second Amendment cause send $35 to the NRA
and figure they're done for the year.
Consider this comparison: the executive vice president of the NRA -- ALONE --
is paid more money IN FOUR MONTHS than COA has raised -- and put to work, HARD
-- in nearly a year.
WHAT WE'VE DONE, WHAT WE CAN DO
In the ten months since we formed COA, this money has been used to produce
and run our ads in 42 states on over 300 radio stations, and tens of thousands
of our print ads have been distributed.
We don't waste it begging politicians to uphold the Constitution, we don't
give it to politicians who have voted against our rights because they're the
lesser of two definite evils, and we don't waste it sending out hundreds of tons
of fundraising mail which asks for more money to send out a hundred more tons of
