About Us

 

Great Lakes Gun Rights is organized as a 501(c)(4) non-profit, non-partisan grassroots citizen organization made up of gun owners and lovers of liberty.

We do not endorse, support, or oppose any candidate for political office. We do not call for the election or defeat of any candidate for political office.

Instead, Great Lakes Gun Rights seeks to inform gun owners, voters, and liberty activists in Michigan on their candidate’s positions on firearms issues.

The goal is to hold politicians accountable and achieve maximum liberty for an individual to defend himself, his family, and his property without having to ask government for permission to do so.

By signing petitions, postcards, letters, sending emails, faxes, making phone calls, personally visiting your state legislators, and contributing, together we can take back our individual liberty to defend ourselves from the government licensing system that exists today.

We invite all of Michigan, and anyone else, who believes in freedom, liberty, and private property to join Great Lakes Gun Rights.

In addition to his work with GLGR, he is the Director of Field Operations for the National Association for Gun Rights. In this role, Brenden has been instrumental in the passage of Constitutional Carry in well over a dozen states.
