BY HAWAII REPORTER STAFF – The Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms awarded Hawaii Reporter editor Malia Zimmerman its top journalism award at its recent conference in San Francisco, CA.

The two-day conference held September 24 and 25 brought together nearly 500 people from around the country to hear from well-known authors, scholars, activists, attorneys and journalists on the Second Amendment.


Alan Gottlieb, head of both organizations, presented the award to Zimmerman at an awards luncheon, saying it is rare to find a member of the media that covers issues surrounding the Second Amendment fairly, thoroughly and accurately.

Women & Gun Magazine also featured Zimmerman in its October 1 publication in a two-page news report.

For background: The Second Amendment Foundation is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms.

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations.
