LGO's main contact point



press and writers

   While we are an ultimately fair organization, it is important to express that, in the era of social media, we see exposure through the mainstream media as something which is completely unnecessary. It is especially unnecessary relative to our own outreach, education, and publication goals. We have everything that we need, within our own organization, to publish information and create the levels of awareness that we desire. Liberal Gun Owners does not possess an adversarial attitude towards the media. However, as an organization, LGO is completely turned off by the loss of journalistic ethics and values in modern media. We are turned off by the loaded angles that we have seen in most of the current examples of reporting on the liberal gun ownership phenomenon. We will not be partaking in superficial treatments. We will not be signing-off on or agreeing to articles with any writer who comes to us, collects their bits, and then paints liberal gun ownership as some quirk, some reactionary process that started in January of 2017, some flash in the pan, or a novelty. None of those things are accurate and all of these things have already been published in less than a year's time.

   LGO supports fair, proper journalism. We don't mind criticism, when it's earned. What we do not support is schlock, superficial treatments, and propaganda-lite. Anyone interested in interviewing or writing a piece on LGO will have to make an effort to develop trust with us. If you don't have time for that, the time required for both sides to communicate and find a place where our two value systems meet, then don't waste your time. Any prospective writer will have to display to the organization that your goal is to create something of real value before even being seriously considered. We will not contribute to the angling and propaganda that is being created in the mainstream media right now.

   As such, interviews and articles will only be granted to writers who sign an agreement which stipulates that both Liberal Gun Owners and the writer / media company have sign-off/approval rights on the final edit of a piece. If you aren't willing to, or cannot offer that, don't bother contacting us. It is unfortunate that it has had to come to such a place, but right now, both sides of the media spectrum are adding to the country's division. Liberal Gun Owners will not engage in that.

Otherwise, are you a writer who understands what you just read? Do you understand why an organization would need to have such a policy? Want to work with us to create an accurate, truthful, integrity-filled piece?

Prospective LGO Members

   If you are a gun owner or if you are considering gun ownership, and you have philosophies and political views that lean left, then we want you to know that we have a secure and enjoyable place for you to discover or further develop your enthusiasm for firearms. This goes for independent minds, free-thinkers, and anyone who can put differences aside, and constructively engage in a community built upon passion and enjoyment. Yes, firearms are a social and political issue. Yes, in a separate forum, we engage in those discussions, respectfully and hardily. However, our primary purpose is not to proselytize for any aspect of gun politics. We all work on behalf of the Second Amendment in our own individual ways. The main purpose of LGO is to support people, who happen to be liberal, who also understand the enjoyment of firearms.  

   Some liberals are just at the stage where life, or the current political division in this country has stimulated a desire in them to further their approach to awareness and self-defense. This, of course, is a legitimate awakening in our eyes. We have room for that as well.

   At the end of the day, there is a point where the experienced liberal gun owner just wants to put aside the noise of the debates, and just enjoy talking guns with their buddies. This is the heart and soul of our organization - it will never change from this. Understanding this truth seems to be a sticking point with many liberals and leftists who have attempted to join our community. We are liberals, indeed. But it is no issue for us to understand that a person's politics can be relaxed, and holstered when it's time to unwind.

   For the record, in order to achieve the maturity and success that we have with LGO, we have had to engage, thoroughly, in denying entry to thousands of toxic conservatives. But almost equally, we have to police our own community and eject toxic leftists from our circle. Being an asshole is not something that stops at the right side of the political spectrum. It's an issue on both sides. Liberal Gun Owners is welcoming to mature and constructive people. We have suffered long at holding to the precept of absolute inclusion while we let politically manic leftists, and leftists with their own agenda, run roughshod all over our forum. Those days are over. If you are a decent person, and can comprehend and support support our mission and conduct rules in forum, then you will receive unending support for your experience with firearms.

If you are politically left, and any of the following things, you definitely should not knock on LGO's door:

  • Someone who believes themselves to hold the almighty definition of what it means to be liberal, and deems anyone outside of that definition as disingenuous.
  • Someone who has any manor of political or social crusade as their purpose for attempting to join.
  • Someone who looks at firearms or LGO as a way to engage in an extreme political revolution.
  • Someone who wants to join to espouse the precepts of Juche, Communism, Marxism.
  • Someone who wants to use LGO's forum as a place to achieve a goal relative to changes in gun laws. LGO is mainly for gun enthusiasm, and enjoyment. We have different views on the matter of law, and consistently exchange these views in order to offer information from different perspectives. It is completely unnecessary for us to have someone in the group, who has solely joined the group for the, "it's time we talk about taking gun control seriously..." sermonizing.
  • Someone who lives in their mom's house, or in a space that your parents help you pay for, and like to cover your face with a handkerchief at protests, and glorify the molotov cocktail, spray paint, dumpster fires, the hammer and sickle, or the image of Che Guevara's face. You know, shit like that.

   If you are sincere in your desire to join a community where open-minded and mature people talk about and enjoy gun ownership, then please come and check out our Facebook page. It is where the action is. There are two entry questions that you need to answer. If you pass muster, you will be allowed in. It's that simple.
