Just in time for Christmas holiday gift-giving, the San Diego County Gun Owners PAC (SDCGO), a political action committee promoting Second Amendment rights in San Diego County, is hosting an online auction through Nov. 20 of more than 50 items, including firearms and ammo. The items can be reviewed and instructions about bidding are available at www.sdcgo.org/auction. The auction is open to the public.
SDCGO said proceeds from the auction will benefit its advocacy efforts to support pro-gun elected officials who will defend the fundamental right to self defense for law-abiding citizens and stand strong in support of the Second Amendment. The PAC also said proceeds also will help provide services and resources for SDCGO volunteers involved in local-level activism.
The auction items were previously donated by SDCGO members for a silent auction that was planned to be part of SDCGO’s 2020 Second Amendment Celebration Dinner, which was cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Available auction items include a Remington shotgun, Colt Frontier single-action revolver, 1,000 9mm rounds, a dove hunting trip to Uruguay and a full day of firearms training for four people. Other items include vacation getaways to Mexico and the Caribbean. A variety of sports, music and movie memorabilia is available, including a Lebron James autographed jersey, Shaquille O’Neal autographed Reebok shoe (size 22) and Patrick Mahomes autographed helmet, as well as a Tom Petty autographed guitar, Rolling Stones tour poster and autographed movie posters.
Additional auction items are expected to be added throughout the month, according to Michael Schwartz, executive director, SDCGO.
“We’re grateful to our members for their support and theirs generous donations of auction items that are available to the general public,” said Schwartz. “Auction proceeds will help our efforts to restore and preserve our Constitutional Second Amendment rights. Activism, outreach and electing the right leaders is the only way to protect our rights in California, oppose an extremist gun-control agenda and make a difference because together we will win.”
Founded in 2015, the San Diego County Gun Owners is a registered political action committee (FPPC ID #1379388) and advocacy organization focused on organizing the gun industry and community and protecting the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment right to bear arms. With a membership of about 2,500 individuals, the PAC provides news and information on new gun laws and Second Amendment advocacy. Its sponsored events include gun safety classes, small gun shows, sporting clay shoots, social gatherings and pistol, rifle and shotgun experiences taught by professional instructors. SDCGO features a diverse and inclusive membership with representatives the LGBT, Latino, African American, Asian and Pacific Islander communities. While every U.S. state has a Second Amendment PAC, along with several nationwide gun rights PACs, the SDCGO is believed to be the America’s first, strictly local, countywide Second Amendment advocacy organization.
