Our guest today is Dave Kopp. Dave is the co-founder and President of the Arizona Citizens Defense League and the AzCDL Foundation. Dave is an East Coast transplant, a former computer programmer and a family man. Dave spends his time restoring and protecting the right to keep and bear arms through legislative lobbying. He is a strong voice protecting Arizonans against anti-rights groups and legislation that seek to limit our freedoms. 1) In political philosophy, the phrase “consent of the governed” refers to the idea that a government's legitimacy and moral right to use state power is justified and lawful only when consented to by the people or society over which that political power is exercised. Is our “consent” merely the vote we used to “hire” our Representatives? So, after they are in office they get to do whatever they want? 2) In AZ you head up two important organizations. Both the AzCDL and the Foundation. How are these two organizations similar and how are they different? 3) Does the AzCDL also have a Political Action arm? 4) Every year the AzCDL holds a Membership Meeting. Last year I was honored to help with the “digital” portion of the meeting by moderating a panel on Zoom. What are the plans this year? And do you have to be a member to attend?

Arizona Citizens Defense League and the AzCDL Foundation.

Dave is an East Coast transplant, a former computer programmer and a family man. Dave spends his time restoring and protecting the right to keep and bear arms through legislative lobbying. He is a strong voice protecting Arizonans against anti-rights groups and legislation that seek to limit our freedoms.

Dave works closely with the legislature to get strong pro-rights bills written and passed into law, while stopping freedom restricting bills, earning Arizona the reputation for being the friendliest state for gun owners. Significant amongst AzCDL’s many successes was the 2010 “Constitutional Carry” bill, restoring the ability of law-abiding adult citizens to carry openly or concealed without government permission. Dave is passionate about the work he does and is a sought-after speaker and knowledgeable resource in the firearms community.

One of his favorite quotes explains why Dave is a dedicated and driven champion for Arizona firearm owners: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”– Edmund Burke

The AzCDL is where grassroots activists take a stand, working at the Arizona legislature, to get strong pro-rights bills written and passed into law, while stopping bad bills.
