But We Can’t Do It Without You!
Big Changes Coming for Riverside County and San Bernardino County Gun Owners!
With a lot of careful thought and consideration we have decided that Riverside County Gun Owners and San Bernardino Gun Owners will merge to create Inland Empire Gun Owners or IEGO for short. Our official launch date will be Dec 1st, 2021 and our 1st event under this new name will be the 1st annual IEGO Christmas Party. The details of the Christmas Party will come out the first couple weeks of Nov and we are hoping for a great family event.
So what will IEGO look like? Some things will stay the same, such as the monthly Virtual CCW Seminars. Since San Bernardino and Riverside CCW requirements are different, we will still provide separate Seminars for each county every month just as we do now. We will also still Vet, Endorse, and promote Second Amendment friendly candidates at the local level, individually for each county.
Some of the things of course will be changing as we grow. Monthly Meetings will now be combined into a single meeting, rotating between the two counties. We are also looking at the logistics of Live Streaming the meetings for those who are unable to attend any in-person meetings. They will be able to join us, hear the latest news for IEGO and participate along with those who are in attendance.
Our Tabletops and Gun Show events will also be changing some. They will be open to both counties for volunteer opportunities. We will also have a Tabletop/Gun Show Lead, Mike Cooke will be the Lead for all of these outreach efforts. Mike along with his team of county specific Team Captains will run and organize all of our outreach efforts. Since our Inland Empire area will be so vast, we will be looking for additional team captains to grow our organization. If you are interested in being a team captain near your city or in either county please reach out to Mike Cooke and sign-up.
There are still a lot of logistics to workout for this merge and name change and more information will be coming out in the weeks to come, so keep an eye on your email, our social media pages and on the webpages for new and updated information . In the meantime, there are a couple of things I need for you to do, to help make this transition as smooth as possible for everyone.
1. If you are an RCGO member, Please login to REVV (our donation/membership system) and verify that all your information is up to date and accurate. You can do this by going to , clicking on the “Join Now” button, toward the bottom of the page there is a red button that says “Make a 1 time donation” click on that, and when prompted “login” from here your will be able to access your account and make any changes. This will not charge you again, it is just the way to login to the REVV system. The information we need verified or updated is Email address, phone number, house address (No PO Boxes are allowed due to CA campaign donation laws) and your Employer and job title (This is also required by the State of CA campaign laws) Please keep your employer and job title to your actual company name and job. If you are Retired, unemployed or a homemaker please just say that. Although we do get a laugh out of the very witty and creative descriptions that some have come up with, it does create additional work for our staff and we incur extra costs by having to take the time to call you for the accurate information, if we are unable to get the information in time, we have to file an amendment to our monthly tax filing, this also incurs an additional cost not only with our accounting office but with the tax board as well.
2. If you are an SBCGO member, I will be sending out individual instructions for each of you since they are different for our monthly members and our annual members, but in essence I will need you to go to the RCGO Join page and sign up again before your next payment is due. You can do this by going to and sign up under the Riverside County Gun Owners membership page. This will allow you to enter all your information into our payment/donation site (REVV). This database will be “re-named” Inland Empire Gun Owners come Dec 1st. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to roll over any payment information from one system to the other or merge the two separate systems to create a single system. The only way for us to create a single database is to have our SBCGO members re-enter their information in the current RCGO database and then rename it on Dec 1st.
3. If you currently receive our weekly newsletter emails from either RCGO and SBCGO, you will still receive these emails. If for some reason the emails stop coming, please reach out to us, using the email under the Contact Us tab on either webpage.
If you have any questions, comments and/or concerns please feel free to email me at
We will still be holding separate monthly meetings for the month of Oct. SBCGO’s Oct meeting will be held at Bass Pro Shops at Victoria Gardens, upstairs in the Trophy Room on Friday Oct 22. The meet, eat and greet will start at 6pm with the meeting starting at 6:30pm.
RCGOs meeting will be held Friday Oct 29th at American Preparedness Academy located at 19960 Winton St, Corona, CA 92881. The meet, eat and greet will start at 6pm and meeting will start at 6:30pm
Last but not least, If you are watching this and you are not yet a member, I encourage you to go to and sign up today. We have several membership levels starting for as little as $10 per mo or $100 per year. All of us here at Riverside and San Bernardino Gun Owners appreciate all of our Second Amendment brothers and sisters, it is time to join the fight to protect our Second Amendment rights. Together, We will Win!

Become an Ambassador Today!
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. Most 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 RCGO website for upcoming dates. 
Courage. Knowledge. Power.
Murrieta Police Chief Tony Conrad
Anti-Second Amendment!
Riverside County Gun Owners Warns Murrieta Residents to Avoid Getting CCWs From Murrieta Police Department!
Riverside County Gun Owners (RCGO), a political action committee (PAC) promoting Second Amendment rights, is warning all Murrieta residents to avoid applying for a Carry Concealed Weapon permit (CCW) through the Murrieta Police Department. Instead, applicants should utilize the CCW process through the Riverside County Sheriff’s Licensing Department.
“Murrieta was the first to start issuing CCWs under the previous sheriff. At the time, it took years to get a CCW, and we are grateful for their initiative,” said Michael Schwartz, on behalf of RCGO. “But a lot has changed, and Murrieta Police Chief Tony Conrad is frankly ripping off Murrieta residents by unnecessarily charging an additional $150 for every application.”
Unlike Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco, or any county in California, Chief Conrad requires that 100% of CCW applicants complete the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2) test before they are issued a CCW. The MMPI-2 does not test an applicant’s sanity, nor does the test make a determination on a person’s mental health condition. The MMPI-2 is most often used to pre-test law enforcement, fire, and public safety employees to see if the applicant’s personality is optimal for training and on-the-job performance in those specific fields. Under California CCW laws, there is no requirement by the state that a personality test be administered nor is there a requirement that citizens have the same personality as a police officer. 
“RCGO met with Chief Conrad to make a simple and reasonable request — bring your process into parity with Riverside County and the rest of California. Stop the 100% requirement and only use these personality tests on applicants as needed,” said Schwartz. “Chief Conrad refused to even consider our request and said he did not want to allow ‘certain personalities’ to have a CCW. Yet, he was unable to define which personalities he dislikes. He went on to admit that even though he has never denied a permit based on the test results, he would not consider removing what is essentially a $150 personality tax.”    
According to the Murrieta Police Department website, the MMPI-2 test is administered by two outside vendors and costs $150 per applicant. Chief Conrad went on record saying that he did not agree that the test is a personality test, but the name of the test and Chief Conrad’s subsequent statements contradict his claim.         
“Chief Conrad is requiring applicants to go through this personality test to see if he likes you enough to issue a CCW for self-protection, and he charges you $150 for the privilege,” Schwartz said. “Murietta’s city council clearly was working for the people of their city when they implemented their CCW program, but Chief Conrad does not appear to have their best interests in mind. It is fair to wonder whose best interest he does have in mind. I was surprised by Chief Conrad’s hardline stance, and now RCGO is not only concerned about a personality test being an unusual roadblock to your ability to defend yourself, but now I am wondering why that $150 fee is so important to him and his department. Regardless of the results of an investigation into those fees, nobody hired a police chief to judge an applicant’s personality. It is outrageous that he refuses to remove a test that is not required, that is not relevant to your ability to defend your life, and that he admitted isn’t used to deny applicants. Yet, it is required for 100% of CCW applicants. It needs to end.”
If you would like to voice your disapproval and call for an end to Chief Conrad’s personality test requirement for all applicants, please call him directly at (951) 461-6309 and send him an email at Despite how frustrated we all are, please be respectful and polite. 
Founded in 2019, Riverside County Gun Owners is a registered political action committee (FPPC #1419037) and advocacy organization focused on organizing the gun industry and community and protecting the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment right to bear arms.
