Citizens Association for Responsible Gun Ownership – Who We Are

CARGO Rockwall (Citizens Association for Responsible Gun Ownership) serves to educate citizens on pertinent law, self defense techniques, gun safety practices, firearm proficiency and liability.

In accord with the First Amendment, we are a peaceable assembly of civil people who speak on the matter of Constitutional authority, laws, executive orders and regulations that affect the ownership and use of firearms.

Assault Style

Recent threats to infringe on our rights havecharged the atmosphere among our people – those who understand and appreciate the Second Amendment and those who don’t. Unlike contemporary news broadcasts where people talk over one another, we do not. Ours is a civil gathering. We respect those with whom we disagree and we treat them civiliy, regardless the way they treat us.

At every meeting there will be one or more law enforcement officers. Why? They are not there to watch us or intimidate us, they are there by invitation. The objective is to use them as valuable resources and to forge mutual respect between citizen and law enforcement.

Meeting will go fast. I suggest you arrive 15 to 20 minutes before meetings start to get your dinner and find the best seat in the house. Our host, Soulman’s Bar-B-Que welcomes us and provides an enclosed meeting room at no charge to the group, but the owner does requre that each person in attendance purchase from the establishment – this is how they keep the lights on.

If you are a current Concealed Handgun License (CHL) holder, your concealed weapon is welcome – keep it concealed. At no time will we expose a loaded concealed handgun in our meetings.

In all following meetings we invite you to bring weapons to educate one another. All weapons to be displayed must come encased and unloaded. A volunteer will assist you at the door to double check weapons for safety. I suggest you first get your food, find a seat, then retrieve your weapons for display.

Expect to meet local CHL instructors and take advantage of their unique qualifications. We’ll also be hearing from insurance agents on how to protect us from lawsuits.

Never before in all our nation’s history have we been at such peril of loss of our precious inalienable rights. Let’s all work together to preserve liberty for our children and grandchildren.

Speaking of children and grandchildren, CARGO is a family affair. It naturally follows that profanity will not be tolerated. Make this a family dinner affair for your family.

Volunteers – Think about what you may feel is your ‘calling’. We need safety officers to check weapons, greeters to welcome visitors, someone to register attendees to assure they get on the mailing list and know how to follow our activities.

We need a firing range affiliation. Let’s find something reasonably nearby that can provide us economical memberships to encourage maintenance of proficiency.

  1. Is there a membership involved here? Son has been member of NRA…Not pleased with latest issues involving same…Understand your organization far more civilized…Hm. Is there a membership involved? Would like to know…

    1. We are citizens who exercise our First Amendment Right to Assembly. There are no membership dues since we are citizens serving citizens. Because we have no dues or treasury, the we don’t seek permission from the IRS, either.

      We meet every second Thursday inside the private meeting room of Soulman’s Bar-B-Que in Rockwall, Texas. Presentations and discussions begin promptly at 6 PM and close promptly at 7 PM.

      Come a little before 6 to go through the serving line and to find a good seat in the private dining room.
