CRPA

CALIFORNIA RIFLE AND PISTOL ASSOCIATION

Founded way back in 1875, the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) is an organization of sportsmen dedicated to the preservation of our American heritage. In this age of constant political attacks on the rights of law-abiding citizens to own and use firearms for legitimate purposes, the CRPA is the state organization dedicated to protecting firearm freedoms and promoting shooting sports solely in the State of California.

CRPA’s lobbyist in Sacramento fights adverse firearms legislation and advances laws that will protect your rights.

CRPA’s Counsel for Litigation and Local Affairs files appropriate litigation against the state or cities that pass unconstitutional or illegal ill-conceived gun control laws, monitors local legislative efforts, and mobilizes CRPA’s resources to oppose those efforts as necessary.

CRPA’s bimonthly publication, The Firing Line and website keeps its members abreast of current legislative and shooting news, as well as offering a public forum so members can express their views in print.

Though the CRPA is the official state association of the National Rifle Association, the CRPA is a stand alone California non-profit corporation, independently controlled by its own Board of Directors. CRPA’s members include: law enforcement officers, prosecutors, professionals, firearm experts, the general public, and loving parents.

Historically, the CRPA has played an important role in promoting the shooting sports by conducting state championship matches for adults and young shooters, teaching firearms safety, and supporting state teams to the national championships each year.
