Gun Owners to Host Fundraiser in Citrus Heights

Gun Owners to Host Fundraiser in Citrus Heights

A statewide gun rights group has chosen the Citrus Heights Community Center for its April 25 crab feed, citing its growing numbers as a primary reason for the venue.

With an auction, gun raffle, and games planned — and $55 dollars a seat, or $800 for a table — the gun rights group is hoping to raise money to “Get out the vote” this election year, as well as gain some new members.

Boasting nearly 10,000 supporters on Facebook, the organization seeks to distinguish itself with a “no-compromise” approach to its lobbying efforts, drawing support from gun owners who say other groups are not strong enough on 2nd Amendment issues.
