ABOUT US

Our Mission Statement

WHAT DO WE DO?

San Diego County Gun Owners (SDCGO) is a political organization that focuses on expanding and restoring Second Amendment rights within San Diego County. SDCGO was formed due to an aggressive and successful legislation and regulatory effort to significantly limit or eliminate the firearms industry and the general ownership and use of firearms and the firearms industry in California at the municipal, county, and state level. SDCGO’s solution is a local, non-partisan, volunteer group with full-time staff that does four things to get the right people elected on local San Diego councils and boards:

  • Second Amendment Advocacy at the city/county level
  • Second Amendment Community Organizing
  • Political Fundraising
  • Working with the local gun industry on the first 3

HOW DO WE DO IT?

SDCGO is dedicated to preserving and restoring San Diego citizens’ gun rights. SDCGO has developed a strong, permanent infrastructure that focuses on changing the face of gun ownership by working with and through volunteers with regard to local and state level activism and outreach. Since its beginning in 2015, SDCGO has made a profound influence and advancement on policies protecting the Second Amendment throughout San Diego County.

SDCGO provides a calendar of activist events and recreational shooting events on our website and through a weekly email and the opportunity to get together with a variety of other activists at our monthly organizational meetings.

Our members are active in their neighborhood community and joined SDCGO to leverage their efforts together as an influential, effective Second Amendment rights organization.

WHO DO WE REPRESENT?

San Diego County Gun Owners consists of San Diego's shooting enthusiasts, Second Amendment supporters, people who own guns for defensive reasons or sport, firearms dealers and firearms accessory dealers, and elected officials who want to restore and protect the right to keep and the right to bear arms in California.

WHAT DO WE ADD TO SAN DIEGO?

We bring a Second Amendment focus to local San Diego politics that did not exist. SDCGO is the permanent infrastructure to improve candidate bench strength and precinct operations and a meaningful way for gun owners to get involved in politics. SDCGO will increase voter turn-out by giving guidance and hope to single-issue, Second Amendment voters.

Together We Will Win.
