  • Enter the raffle to shoot a real M249 S.A.W. (as in “squad automatic weapon”)



Or go to:


Guerilla Tactics for Gun Rights Warriors

After the GRNC board meets, from 1 to 1:30 PM, GRNC president Paul Valone will personally teach you some of the tools and tactics which we use to trounce anti-gun zealots. You will learn:

  • What motivates politicians, governmental bodies and corporations and how to make them do your bidding
  • Why you, as an honest person, are ill-prepared for the political process;
  • The three most common mistakes made by honest people who get involved in issues and, as an added bonus;
  • Mix and mingle with GRNC representatives will show you the ropes and prepare you to get involved!

(Seminar: $30 early bird. $40 after Feb. 8. Seminar open to GRNC members current on December 31, 2016. The fee is waived for GRNC Benefactor members, PRO RKBA Benefactor sponsors, and those who volunteer for the GRNC Legislative Action Team).


GRNC-PVF Benefit Match    

As you may have heard, liberal judges have decreed that some General Assembly districts must be redrawn and hold special 2017 elections. The GRNC Political Victory Fund, GRNC’s federally registered political action committee, will be slugging it out to elect pro-gun candidates in those races, meaning we need money in what would not normally be an election year. The 2017 GRNC-PVF Benefit Match will give you a chance to showcase your defensive handgun skills, win GRNC-branded merchandise, and most of all, elect pro-gun candidates

(Match: $25 early bird. $35 after Feb. 8.
1:30 to 4:00 PM).
Get Involved!
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
                                                         – Thomas Jefferson

Thanks to dedicated volunteers, GRNC and its mascot “Max” have stood guard over your gun rights since 1994. Now those volunteers need your help in the form of (speaking metaphorically) “new blood” – new volunteers for tasks such as the Legislative Action Team, alert writers, and our vitally important gun show outreach effort. In response to tyrants like Barack Obama and Michael Bloomberg, you’ve joined GRNC, sent email to politicians, and perhaps even supported pro-gun PACs and candidates. Maybe you’ve wanted to do more but didn’t know how. As always, GRNC is at your service. During the event, track down the nearest GRNC volunteer and let them know you’d like to pitch in. Volunteers will be happy to answer your questions or connect you with those who can.

As you know, GRNC is an all volunteer force. As such, we are looking for volunteers in a couple of areas:

    Experience in web development to include HTML, CSS & Java Scripting. If interested, contact GRNC President using the following contact form:
    Solid writing skills, ability to translate legal, political, technical and firearms jargon into layman's terms and make the public care about the issue. Ability to manipulate HTML style emails on the code level is a nice to have. If interested, please contact GRNC using this e-mail address:

If you have these skills, you can help the Second Amendment fight by enhancing and expanding GRNC’s presence, ensuring our message is received broadly in these modern times.

Don’t let your talents go to waste, as you could be the difference between gun-rights advancements and gun-rights losses.

Be the person who says, “I did something!” Instead of the person who says, “I should have done something.”
