National African American Gun Association Convention is Coming, Aug 14th-16th 2020

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- This week we Officially announced the date of the national convention for the National African American Gun Association in August of 2020.  It will be from August 14th thru the 16th. More info on the location to follow in future updates.

This is an important step for our organization. The goal of the convention is to become better and celebrate our past year. It will address where we started, where we are, and more importantly where we are going.

It will also provide members an opportunity to discuss various aspects of our organization, attend Firearm Strategy sessions, award those who have been instrumental in our development, have some fun ( yes we can have fun ), and allow us to strengthen our bonds with each other as African American members of NAAGA.  This is a natural process in our growth and maturation as an organization. Being able to come together will strengthen us and renew our spirit.

I believe that shooting a gun is the same regardless of your race but what is dramatically different for African Americans is what happens to us before we buy a gun and after we buy a gun. That reality is the reason why this organization came into existence. We provide an Afrocentric view of owning a Firearm for our community and will continue to do so with no apologies. So, let’s get ready and I will see everyone in August of 2020.

And don’t forget to bring your Firearm because we will have some time at the range with some shooting contests between Chapters and members.


National African American Gun Association

About National African American Gun Association (NAAGA):

We are a civil rights organization focused on self preservation of our community through armed protection and community building. The National African American Gun Association provides a network for all African American firearm owners, gun clubs and outdoor enthusiasts.

Our organization should be celebrated by our fellow 2A advocates, not questioned. We promote 2A advocacy in communities where the education around the topic and participation in the right to bear arms has been lacking. This knowledge and exercising of our inalienable rights only makes us stronger as a 2A community. Why would anyone want to discourage that? Say and do what you want, however, recognize that we all have an obligation to take care of our families, community and country! Regardless of how anyone feels we will persist! *** Our team will be front & center at the Convention… Read more »

Old Vet, your comment reminds me of the late ’70s when I was working in the oil fields in Oklahoma. There was an area north of the Cimarron River called “the bottoms.” It was mostly sand and not as good for growing wheat as other areas. As a result the White settlers took the better areas and that left the Bottoms for non-whites. Fast forward in time and I would be working on an oil well in the Bottoms and occasionally these old Black men would come out nearby in their old pickups with their greyhounds and shotguns and hunt… Read more »

@OV, I would label you “OFF THE HOOK” And everyone else who never owned, and whose ancestors never owned slave also off the hook. So why go to the entity that ended slavery (and indentured servitude), at all? If one is to apply todays moral, ethical, and legal standards to people from the past, then maybe one should look to those that offended todays moral, ethical, and legal standards for payment. And to whom is this debt owed? Would it not be to the slaves rather than someone who never was a slave or indentured servitude or relative to a… Read more »

I am amazed every time an article about NAAGA is posted in Ammoland there is always an onslaught of attack about the name, but I never see those same jokers commenting about “Jew for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership” of Pink Pistols or any Second Amendment Woman organizations. It seem anything associated with Black or African bring out your deep rooted hatred. Guess what no one is looking for your approval.

It is pathetic if you ask me. Afro Centric organizational titles are beacons, like “Martin Luther King Blvd.” Something to be given a wide berth. Saturday I shot a USPSA match, with 75 competitors, and there were whites, blacks, native American, Hispanics, oriental, male, female, young and old. The organization is about shooting and everyone who can abide the rules may come and enjoy the fun. It’s a pity that some blacks can’t stop being divisive. It does them no good in the end.

To the critics who seem more focused on the organization’s name and not its mission. The National African American Gun Association doesn’t discriminate membership. There are members who are not Black or African-American. I for one am looking forward to the convention and the opportunity to meet my fellow NAAGA members.

Yes we will keep right on tossing salt on YOUR wound while ours is healing. Yes we are being separatists because half of YOU bastards can’t be trusted. Those of you who mean well look just like those of you who are devils. So the safest thing for us to do is to withdraw from systems as a whole and be totally self-sufficient and independent. We don’t need or want you and that just burns you up. Get over yourself

So, we all look alike to you? Where have I heard that before? Hmmm. Let me help you out. What you are doing is what the shrinks call “projection.”
“Projection is a form of defense in which unwanted feelings are displaced onto another person, where they then appear as a threat from the external world. A common form of projection occurs when an individual, threatened by his own angry feelings, accuses another of harboring the same feelings.”
Like I said: pathetic.

African Americans have a drastically different relationship with firearms and the Second Amendment, and this organization was born from that experience. We exist to represent and highlight an often under-served and ignored demographic in the broader gun and Second Amendment community.  To be quite frank, anyone else’s perception of the name or acronym, the objectives and mission, the logo or anything else does not matter. We have no problem working with anyone else to achieve common goals, and to that end NAAG is ready and willing to go to the wall to protect our right to keep and bear arms… Read more »

Its funny people are so quick to call others snowflakes, but at the same time lose their head when a group(who is literally fighting the same fight)has a name they dont like. Do these same people have an issue with Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, the Pink Pistols(Gay gun rights group)or The Well Armed Woman?
We are witnessing the destruction of a fundamental right and you want to cry about a name?

The hypocrisy of some of your protestations is laughable. When’s the last time you’ve been ‘up in arms’ against exclusively Anglo groups (think boards of directors or executive officers of most corporations in this country)? Your one-for-all and all-for-one speeches carry so little weight when they are solely OUTGOING messages. Practice what you preach!

Anyone who oppose your organization, opposes all desiring to be viably free human beings. We, that is us who will prevent the disarming of our citizens need more like believing organizations to increase and become stronger.

Jack. You just alienated the majority of America by labeling yourself by race and not nationality. This is not 1865 and those of us living today had nothing to do with that era. Learn from the mistakes of history and do not repeat them. Unification of one people one nation will carry us a lot further that splinter groups holding grudges from decades past.. There are elements in this nation that would like to see a civil unrest and race bait issues of the constitution..

Dan, isn’t NAAGA then doing the same, since it is identifying by race, not nationality. What is an Afro-American, if not self-identifying by “race”. I suspect a Libyan, Egyptian, Moroccan, or other person of non-sub-Saharan Africa, would also not be welcome. Interestingly, it’s okay to lump every non-Sub-Saharan into one category, but that isn’t bigoted? Jack is correct, the organization should be inclusive. I would be supportive, to, but clearly I would not be allowed to be part of their organization due to lack of melanin and other physical characteristics, that makes the organization racist. As to John Cutter’s bigoted… Read more »

I agree Dave. But I wonder if Louis would react with such comradeship and collectivism if a group of White Americans formed for instance, a ‘National White American Gun association’ Would that be racist? Would he be ‘offended’?
“worry more about supporting one another than acronyms or PC” sounds good. A little late for that statement though. Why name the association with such a name so as to automatically alienate others? Which it does. I do agree that we should all have the same goal as our forefathers. And not just pertaining to the 2nd.

Ron, et al. The left pseudo-liberals for their self-serving agendas use minority race groups as political pawns. The more minority pro-firearm rights organizations proving they will not be pawns, the better. The titles of their groups should reflect that.

We differ from our forefathers in all men being equal, to all people being equal. We all in order to free and equal need equalizers.

Maybe as a collective gun community we should worry more about supporting one another than acronyms or political correctness. While we are taking shots at organizations trying to do “something” Bloomberg, Giffords, Mom’s, and Every Town are galvanizing their support. “We must live together as brothers or die together as fools.”

Jack, which place of birth are you referring to? Being as I was a newborn, I can’t say I “know” my place of birth. I do know where I was told I was born, and my birth certificate states such, also. As to these racist organizations stating we need to back them, so as to be all as one, creating another group, specifically only allowing certain citizens to be allowed to be part of it, solely on the physical characteristics of the citizen is racist. There is no other way to view it. And stating it is to promote that… Read more »
