ADVOCACY

CRPA is your Second Amendment voice in the Sacramento capital, in regulatory agencies, and in local city halls across California to fight back against the politicians, elitists, and bureaucrats who would take away your right to keep or bear arms.

Grassroots

CRPA organizes local volunteers and grassroots activists to fight for the right to keep and bear arms through local engagement and Chapters.

Strategic Lawsuits That Win

CRPA fights back on your behalf the courts, fighting for your Second Amendment and hunting rights. Unlike some other groups, our lawsuits are strategic — successfully strengthening and defending the Second Amendment in California.

FAMILY FIREARMS SAFETY

CRPA sponsors hundreds of “fun shoots” and recreational shooting events annually. CRPA distributes educational and gun safety information materials at hundreds of gun shows and other events annually, contributing to the fact that gun accidents are at their lowest levels ever! CRPA trains gun owners in firearms safety, marksmanship, and tactical self-defense practices.

competitions

CRPA sanctions regional and state championship shooting competitions, and qualifies teams and individuals to compete in the national championships and Olympics. CRPA sponsors youth shooting activities such as the Jr. Olympics Training Camps, Junior State Championships and safety training.
