We are affiliated with the National African American Gun Association. We are here to promote a positive Chapter for the 2nd Amendment and the Black Community. We accept membership from all walks of life, skin color, and background if that member supports the organization’s agenda and goals.
The goal of the 761st Gun Club is to have every African American in the Chicago-land area introduced to firearm use for self-defense, competitive shooting, and outdoor recreational activities. We are a civil Rights Organization focused on self-preservation of our Community through armed protection and community building. We are not a political group nor endorse any political party, but we do hold our elected officials accountable. We believe that the 2nd Amendment alone is Pro-Black.
