Based in Colorado, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners is Colorado's largest state-based gun lobby. It is a group solely dedicated to the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Our strategy is simple: don't give an inch.
Rather than blindly pursuing public opinion, RMGO uses a well-developed, comprehensive, no-compromise strategy for victory (to read a bit about that strategy, click here).
Our Mission is simple: defend the right to keep and bear arms from all of its enemies, and advance those God-given rights by educating the people of Colorado and urging them to action in the public policy process.

Local & National Media Presence
The staff at RMGO regularly defend your rights on local and national news programs, radio talk shows and through the print media.
While other institutional gun lobbies work to force gun owners to jump through hoops and hurdles for their self defense, RMGO sets a higher standard: the law should recognize law-abiding citizens' rights and not build databases to track gun owners. RMGO has forced lawmakers to recognize the true standard for concealed carry: the Vermont/Alaska law. Vermont—and more recently, Alaska—citizens are allowed to carry concealed firearms without a permit, avoiding the “big-brother-may-I” of a permit system. Citizens who wish to carry in other states can still obtain a concealed weapons permit, but true self defense freedom should be our goal.

Rather than pass “good gun control” or work to compromise our rights to attain a “seat at the table,” RMGO forces politicians to take a stand, either with gun owners or against us. RMGO uses grassroots activism, rather than coddling politicians, to protect our constitutional rights. (To read about our strategy, click here)
Though nearly impossible to define, it is obvious that “assault weapons” are constitutionally protected under the Second Amendment, just as laser printers are protected under the First. Our founding fathers wrote the Second Amendment to protect weapons used by private citizens that are equivalent to the arms of a standing army's infantryman. Since the media has portrayed these firearms as evil, few politicians wish to be forced into actively standing up for your right to own a so-called “assault weapon”. RMGO is firmly committed to protecting your right to own these and other firearms—including .50-caliber rifles—and repealing laws which regulate and restrict their purchase and ownership.
