Gun Owners of California is the oldest pro-gun lobbying organization in the State. Sound crazy? Well, it's the truth. Our founder, Senator H.L. Richardson, ret., was on the board of the NRA in the 1970's when he asked them if they would have a problem with him starting a political action committee, to fight for the Second Amendment in the political arena. He did just that, and shortly thereafter, the NRA started NRA-ILA.
We are 37 years old and still fighting, still growing, and still determined.
We are a non-profit membership organization focused solely on the political arena. We raise money through membership donations and fundraising events throughout the year. We lobby at the State Capitol and we keep everything in the state. We keep our members up-to-date on current legislative attacks on their Second Amendment rights through quarterly newsletters and our website, while lobbying for their rights on a daily basis.
We are committed to being the hardest hitting, most effective, toughest fighting pro-gun organization in the state of California. We have a no-compromise approach when it comes to promoting your gun rights.
