Rock Island Auction Freedom Challenge Will Help Fund NRA-ILA

posted on July 16, 2016

Rock Island Auction Company, an Illinois firearms auction house, has launched the "Rock Island Auction Freedom Challenge," an online fundraising campaign aimed at raising money to support the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action's efforts to preserve Second Amendment rights. RIAC pledged to match up to $1 million in donations raised through the online video campaign.

“If you have a gun, and you want to continue to own it legally, then this challenge is for you,” said RIA Chief Executive Officer Patrick Hogan. “It doesn't matter if you go hunting, target shoot, want to protect yourself or your family, are a member of an at-risk group, are a sport shooter or are a collector. We want your donation, and we will match it. If every person who owned a gun donated just one dollar, the impact would be enormous.”

Second Amendment supporters who accept the challenge will record a video of themselves challenging their friends and family to take the challenge, stating why they are participating in the challenge and then posting to their own social media pages. Donations can be made at www.RIAFreedomChallenge.com. It is not necessary to receive a challenge to participate.
