Amazon Affiliates, Donations, And Other Such Stuff
Amazon changed its policy regarding collecting sales tax for the state of North Carolina at the beginning of February. As a result, North Carolinians are now able to participate in the Amazon Affiliates program and I decided that it was about time I joined. If you look on the right side of the blog, you will see the Amazon widget with a list of recommended books. They are all related to either gun rights or self-defense.
I am changing my policy on what to do with the commissions earned on these affiliate sites. When I first put up the LuckyGunner banner, I decided to donate all the commissions to the Second Amendment Foundation. I continued that policy when I added the Balloon Goes Up store widget.
I am going to expand the list of organizations getting these commissions. While SAF will still get some of the money, I'd like include other 501(c)(3) organizations that work for gun rights in the mix. Some organizations that I'm thinking of including are the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund, the Crime Prevention Research Center, and some of the state level groups working for gun rights.
If you know of a state or local level gun rights group that I should include in the mix, please feel free to suggest it in the comments section. The only requirement is that it have 501(c)(3) status.
