Gottlieb Alan Merril ( 1947-)

For over 20 years, Alan Gottlieb has played a central role in the campaign for recognition of a constitutional right of individuals to keep and bear arms and has worked vigorously to defeat measures that would impose more stringent gun control. Before entering a career as a gun rights advocate, Gottlieb served in the Army National Guard, entering as a private in 1968 and leaving as a Specialist Fourth Class in 1974. In 1971, he received a B.S. from the University of Tennessee. A political conservative, Gottlieb served as the national director of Young Americans for Freedom in 1971-72 and has been the national treasurer of the American Conservative Union. In 1974, Gottlieb established the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) to proclaim his interpretation of the Second Amendment and to serve as a source of information for individuals with the same goal. At the same time, Gottlieb founded the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), the research and education affiliate of CCRKBA.

Gottlieb has authored or co-authored several books dealing with the rights of gun owners, including The Gun Owner's Political Action Manual ( 1976); The Rights of Gun Owners ( 1981); The Gun Grabbers ( 1986); Gun Rights Fact Book ( 1988); Things You Can Do to Defend Your Gun Rights ( 1993) and More Things You Can Do to Defend Your Gun Rights ( 1995), both co-authored with David Kopel; and Guns for Women ( 1988), co-authored with George Flynn. Much of Gottlieb's publications offer practical advice to those who want to further the gun rights cause. For instance, Things You Can Do to Defend Your Gun Rights contains information about ways to influence government, including registering to vote, writing letters to elected officials, circulating petitions, visiting public officials personally, working for political candidates who take pro-gun rights stands, and testifying at public hearings. He gives advice on ways to gain publicity for the gun rights movement.
