To Keep & Bear Freedom: 150 Years of NRA
NRA has produced a hardbound, collectible book chronicling its 150-year history.


With 158 pages, this retrospective examines the turning points, personalities and anecdotes that defined the NRA's critical role in defending the freedom that makes our nation the greatest in history.

To Keep & Bear Freedom covers NRA’s contributions from teaching hundreds of thousands of Americans to shoot during World War II to developing the nation’s first hunter education curriculum, championing competitive shooting and creating world-leading firearm safety programs. As pressure for restrictive gun control has ratcheted up in recent decades, the NRA has taken up the challenge of defending lawful gun ownership.

“To Keep & Bear Freedom is the culmination of much hard work and initiative,” said Executive Director of NRA Publications Doug Hamlin. “The objective was simple—to share with our members and Second Amendment supporters the rich history of the National Rifle Association of America. The book looks back on our founding in 1871 through our current status as America's largest and most effective voice for individual freedom in the United States.”

Price is $29.95, plus shipping. To Keep & Bear Freedom is available from NRAStore.com or call 866-672-2020.
