Check back here often as we announce new functionality in the site and new sections, as well as any important announcements about our organization.
Our New Member Forum Is Now Open
We are proud to announce a new addition to our website and community, a brand spanking new forum. We feel this new forum can help us grow a sense of community and allow each other to reach out for help with issues in an easy fashion.
While things are looking good for firearm owners at the federal level there are many state legislatures poised to attack your constitutional rights and fighting them requires aligned voices. Support will also be needed at the federal level to help repeal Draconian laws that regulate suppressors and to attempt to make carry permits honored like drivers licenses.
This forum is also the next step in growing the organization and appointing state coordinators that can help bring a more intimate knowledge of issues within their state. It is also part of our ultimate goal of helping small pro-gun organizations band together to create a larger base to fight back against any challenge that may arise.
The forum also has other areas, it's not all activism. There is a classifieds section, firearms discussion section and even an off topic area. Creating a community needs more than 'just business'.
We would love to see you come in and post a few things. Yes we know right now it's pretty much a 'blank slate' (there are starter threads and posts) but we need to start somewhere. It's like that first person to get out on the dance floor but with your help we can get this thing going.
To make it a bit more interesting we have decided to open up a contest that will run through January 30th 2017. There will be 6 categories members can vote on with prizes for the top picks and the runner ups. The categories for the contest are:
Most helpful - firearms related
Most helpful - legislation related
Most knowledgeable - firearms related
Most knowledgeable - legislation related
And of course we have to have a funniest poster category.
Top winners will receive an AMGOA coffee mug and a 1 year supporting membership (if the winner is already a supporting member another year will be added).
Runner ups in all categories will receive a 6 month supporting membership.
So come on in, don't be shy, say hello, post a few topics that are important to you and help us get going!

Proposed Legislation Comments System Change
We have changed our commenting system on proposed state and federal legislation to the disgus system so that anyone with a Disgus, Facebook, Google+ or Twitter account can now add comments.
This also means the old Facebook only comments are gone. We regret that but feel this new system allows more people to get in on the conversations.

Issue With Legislation Being Resolved
Today, October 3rd we had an issue with the company that provides our legislation updates and pulled bills that should not have come in. Because of the issue we have had to remove everything that came in today.
If you received a notice of new bills for your state or the federal government please ignore it.
We are sorry for the issue and working to resolve it before the next import.

We deeply regret the down time we experienced Feb. 18th. It appears a server tech didn't pay attention to what needed to be done and took the site down for almost 3 hours. This will NOT happen again.
We have talked to 'upper management and these kinds of problem will NOT reappear.

FFL & Gun Show Review System Added To Site
We have completed two new sections that allow members to add reviews for both FFL dealers and gun shows that you may have done business with. Everyone can read the reviews but only members can leave them.
To review an FFL you simply search for them from our FFL Locator page and under their information you will see a link that says 'review this FFL'
To review a gun show simply find the show in question from our gun show search page and click on the link below the show details that say 'review this show'. The date of the show is irrelevant - the reviews are based off of a promoter doing a show at a specific venue and will 'follow' the show to future dates.

Alternate Prize Added To Contest
It has come to our attention that the Gen 4 Glock can not be owned in California unless it is altered to single shot mode. We were not aware of this so in an effort to make it fair for everyone in every state if the Gen 4 Glock is not legal to own in your state we will provide an alternate Glock of equal or lesser value that is legal to own in the winner's state.
Please see the updated contest page for details
