About Martin Giudice

I am a lifetime member of the NRA. Born in Chicago and raised in Wheaton, Illinois, I am blessed to be a loving father, husband, brother, avid outdoorsman and champion of the private sector. I believe in Judeo-Christian principles, individual liberty, self-reliance, and personal accountability. With over 30 years successful experience in the private business sector and most recently having served as the Director of a Small Business Development Center, I have first hand knowledge as to how government over reach is stifling America. The same forces threatening the 2nd Amendment are at work in throttling if not destroying our economy. The recognition that urgent and major change is needed in our country’s direction and strong desire to help fellow Americans succeed became my passion. As a founder of The Amendment LLC, I hope and pray to be a force for that end! A graduate of Western Illinois University, my wife Laurie and I reside in Forest, Virginia and have three grown children.
