Our “Gun Shop Table Top” program is one of our most effective ways to reach out to current and new members. Volunteering is fun and easy! We provide all the materials you need, and all you have to do is show up. You would be passing out literature about the organization, signing up people for our mailing list, and sharing information about membership. This is an incredibly valuable way to give back to the Second Amendment community and support Orange County Gun Owners!
We are currently looking to grow our Table Top Opportunities throughout Orange County as well. If you know of or own a local 2A friendly business that would host our Table Tops on the weekends please send the information to [email protected]
You can sign up for shifts for this & other events here:
Would you like our postcards or our Executive Director’s business cards to hand out in the community to your friends, neighbors, and fellow Orange County residents to tell them more about OCGO? You can pick some up at our Monthly Meetings, Table Tops, or other events.
If you can’t make events, please email [email protected], & we can mail some to you as well!
Ready to get your CCW but don’t know how to begin? We can help!
Join us for our next CCW Seminar August 22nd at 7PM via Zoom/Facebook Live.
Members! Would you like to be listed on our website as Second Amendment Supporting Business?
OCGO is in the process of adding a Business Directory to our website that will include/feature local businesses that support our Second Amendment Rights! If you are interested in listing your business on the page and possibly providing a discount to fellow OCGO members(optional) please email us at [email protected] to discuss further!
It’s Election Season! Do you have any local candidates you want us to endorse or are you a candidate?
Endorsing candidates is an important part of the political process and is a big step towards Orange County Gun Owners’ goal of electing only people who respect our Second Amendment rights.
For OCGO, every day is election season and the next election is always right around the corner. OCGO is a unique political organization because we focus entirely on local Second Amendment issues. Because we are unique, it is important to understand the specifics of who, how, and why we endorse.
OCGO endorses only county and city level candidates. We do not endorse state or federal candidates because other organizations do a great job already and we do not want to duplicate efforts. We only endorse candidates for City Council, School Board, County Board of Supervisors, Sheriff, and other local boards like water, fire, etc.
OCGO’s Criteria for Endorsements:
The candidate’s stance on the Second Amendment and Second Amendment issues. Does the candidate oppose gun bans, ammunition registration, and accessory bans? Does the candidate support issuing carry permits for the purpose of self-defense? And will the candidate do more than just say they support the Second Amendment? We want to support people who will actively work to protect and restore our Second Amendment rights.
The viability of the candidate’s campaign. By endorsing a candidate, we are asking our members and supporters to donate money and time to their campaign. Our endorsement is not just a voting guide. We will not ask our members to give time and money to a candidate who does not have the proper infrastructure in place to win or has not done enough to raise the money needed to get their message to voters.
The candidate’s character. Even if a candidate is pro-Second Amendment and has a viable campaign, if they have done something that is serious and verifiable to prove they do not have the character to hold public office, we will not endorse. How can we trust a candidate to do the right thing on the Second Amendment if they cannot do the right thing personally or professionally?
If you have a favorite local candidate or are a candidate, please contact us or email [email protected] We want to make sure candidates get our questionnaire and meet with each candidate. Once a candidate is endorsed, OCGO will encourage our members to volunteer for and donate to endorsed candidates. OCGO spends money on behalf of our endorsed candidates to make sure their voters vote for them.

Blog: Where’s Alec? – The rules for the rich and famous are often different than the rules for others.
Where’s Alec? In October 2021 in New Mexico while filming the movie Rust, Alec Baldwin shot and killed one coworker and wounded another. His action was almost certainly unintentional, but the result was the same, one person dead, one person wounded. I first wrote about the incident here.
