AS THE BACKBONE AND LIFEBLOOD OF THE RIGHT TO CARRY IN CALIFORNIA, WE WANT YOU TO KNOW YOU HAVE A PARTNER IN GUN OWNERS OF CALIFORNIA. THE ONSLAUGHT ON OUR RIGHTS CONTINUES MORE VIGOROUSLY EACH YEAR — AND YOUR BUSINESS HAS BEEN A CHIEF TARGET
There are hundreds of thousands of new gun owners in California, and it’s imperative that we continue the fight to protect the Second Amendment from an informed and active platform. In case you aren’t aware of who we are and what we do, we have been fighting 24-7 for our rights for over 40 years - in the legislature, the election, and in the courts. We aren’t afraid of the tough work and the late nights at the Capitol – in fact, in the closing hours of session, GOC was instrumental in stopping last year’s SB 918, which would have limited our ability to carry a firearm to few places outside of our own homes. (Read about that night here.)
This defeat – as well as the sting of the Bruen decision are key reasons why the anti-gun Left is out to destroy your business – and that’s why GOC wants to network and serve as a resource, as you face questions from students on current laws, new regulations, and anything else that might come your way. Plus, we understand that your personal rights are not the only thing affected by the unconstitutional bills introduced each year, but your role as an instructor is at risk as well.
Will you consider joining Gun Owners of California in protecting our rights and growing the 2A community even larger in California?
We are committed to providing you with the information and resources that can benefit you and your students.
