November is right around the corner! Do you have any local candidates you want us to endorse or are you a candidate?
Endorsing candidates is an important part of the political process and is a big step towards Inland Empire Gun Owners goal of electing only people who respect our Second Amendment rights.
For IEGO, every day is election season and the next election is always right around the corner. IEGO is a unique political organization because we focus entirely on local Second Amendment issues. Because we are unique, it is important to understand the specifics of who, how, and why we endorse.
IEGO endorses only county and city level candidates. We do not endorse state or federal candidates because other organizations do a great job already and we do not want to duplicate efforts. We only endorse candidates for City Council, School Board, County Board of Supervisors, Sheriff, and other local boards like water, fire, etc.
IEGO’s Criteria for Endorsements:
1. The candidate’s stance on the Second Amendment and Second Amendment issues. Does the candidate oppose gun bans, ammunition registration, and accessory bans? Does the candidate support issuing carry permits for the purpose of self-defense? And will the candidate do more than just say they support the Second Amendment? We want to support people who will actively work to protect and restore our Second Amendment rights.
2. The viability of the candidate’s campaign. By endorsing a candidate, we are asking our members and supporters to donate money and time to their campaign. Our endorsement is not just a voting guide. We will not ask our members to give time and money to a candidate who does not have the proper infrastructure in place to win or has not done enough to raise the money needed to get their message to voters.
3. The candidate’s character. Even if a candidate is pro-Second Amendment and has a viable campaign, if they have done something that is serious and verifiable to prove they do not have the character to hold public office, we will not endorse. How can we trust a candidate to do the right thing on the Second Amendment if they cannot do the right thing personally or professionally?
If you have a favorite local candidate or are a candidate, please contact us or email us at [email protected] We want to make sure candidates get our questionnaire and meet with each candidate. Once a candidate is endorsed, IEGO will encourage our members to volunteer for and donate to endorsed candidates. IEGO spends money on behalf of our endorsed candidates to make sure their voters vote for them.
Blog: Meanwhile in California, SB-918 and Concealed Carry – Gavin Newsom and the Democrats effectively disarm and endanger Californians despite what the US Supreme Court says
By Joe Drammissi
SB-918 is the reaction of the Democrat supermajority in the California legislature and Governor Newsom to the recent US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) ruling in NYSRPA vs Bruen. In that SCOTUS opinion Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the following:
We too agree, and now hold, consistent with Heller and McDonald, that the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect an individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home.
This ruling forced the handful of backward states clinging to may-issue polices to concede that citizens do indeed have the basic right of self-protection when out in public and the Constitution protects their right to use firearms in that capacity. At least you would think that was the case.
Not in California. The government in California no longer considers laws or the rights of its citizens or even the opinion of the US Supreme Court relevant. We in California are no longer governed by elected representatives, we are ruled by tyrants.
The overwhelming majority of states in America recognize the Second Amendment rights of their citizens and encourage the exercise of those rights. Not so in California, even after the US Supreme Court reaffirmed those rights in the Bruen opinion.
The reaction of the tyrants in California was fine, we’ll issue CCW licenses to law-abiding citizens and they can carry anywhere it’s legally allowed, it just won’t be legally allowed anywhere. This will be accomplished through SB-918 when it is signed into law by the governor.
Cheryl Todd, Maria Juliana, and Mary Davis join the show to talk about the growing number of women taking charge of their own self-defense and standing up for themselves and their children.

In a knee-jerk response to NYSRPA v Bruen, California’s 2A legislature released SB 918, banning concealed carry from everywhere. Is this a cause for panic? Find out how Michael sees it and what you can do that’s effective to fight these new infringements.
Riding Shotgun with Charlie #150 Joe Drammissi Gun Owners Radio/San Diego County Gun Owners
Having a YouTube channel and a ‘road show’ is an adventure. In June, I went to California for the first time, particularly to San Diego. I was attending San Diego County Gun Owners (SDCGO) GunProm. Of course, while I was there, I filmed a few shows. One passenger was Joe Drammissi. He’s a co-host of Gun Owners Radio (GOR) and on the board of SDCGO. I was on GOR’s Magnum show/podcast (link here https://youtu.be/y900a8JZBfk ). I was also a guest on the show once with Amanda Suffecool (RSWC #009) talking about the Concealed Carry Fashion show at NRA 2021. But this trip was epic: We ended up doing a show in studio with my cohort, John Petrolino (RSWC #093).

Do you find yourself watching the local news or reading the newspaper, saying “Someone should do something!”?
The #NotMeIE program is a mentor/mentee referral service run by women for women to help them:
Obtain firearms training
Get assistance in choosing and purchasing a firearm
Obtain a CCW
How does the program work?
A potential client can fill out the application for service on our website. Once received, the project manager reviews the application and assigns the client to an Ambassador. An Ambassador then contacts the client to begin the process of walking them through whatever their firearm needs are. After the client has been successfully helped, their case is closed, and the Ambassador is given a new client to work with. Some of our Ambassadors are also NRA certified trainers. They are very knowledgeable in all aspects of firearms training and purchasing. IEGO also offers an online CCW seminar once a month. Check the IEGO website for upcoming dates. If you are an experienced gun owner and are interested in becoming an Ambassador for the #NotMeIE program please reach out to Karla at [email protected]
