Frank Fiamingo, founder of NJ Second Amendment Society will be speak at our February 23 major fundraising event this year. ?Fiamingo admits he did not grow up with guns and didn’t care much about them until his brother in Florida taught him the sport at age 61. ? Until then, Frank was also too busy building up two businesses and raising a family to care much about politics. ? ?Only in his 60’s did Fiamingo realize that this was a big mistake, and that our kids and grandkids will never have the liberty or prosperity we enjoyed most of our lives unless we get very active in politics right now. ? Date: ?February 23. ?Place: ?Carisbrooke Inn, ?Beach Block Little Rock Ave., Ventnor, NJ ? ?Limited seating fundraising breakfast with Frank Fiamingo at 11 A.M. is $250 per person. ?
