The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) "originated as an ad hoc committee of the Young Americans for Freedom. It has been in independent operation since 1971. CCRKBA believes 'in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution upholding the right of the people to keep and bear arms; that firearms registration does not and cannot solve the problems of rising crime in our streets, and that registration leads to the eventual confiscation of firearms; that a mandatory sentence on conviction of a felony involving the use of a firearm is a deterrent to crime'; and 'that the disarming of individual law-abiding citizens will result in the loss of individual freedoms.' CCRKBA employs one full-time lobbyist in Washington, D.C.

"The Citizens Committee has a political action committee--Right to Keep and Bear Arms Political Victory Fund--which supports state and federal pro-gun candidates. Unlike the NRA, CCRKBA also involves itself in other issues besides firearms-related issues." [1]
