Stand and Fight California

For decades, NRA has stood together with our state association, the California Rifle & Pistol Association (CRPA) and fought for our right to keep and bear arms in the state capital, in the courts, and in city halls across the state.

All of us who cherish freedom recognize that California’s political environment has grown more hostile to the Second Amendment in recent years.   But we won’t back down.  With all of us fighting against the tide, we can restore our firearms freedom. It will not happen overnight, but working together, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish.
