Self Defense Focused
The goal of the National African American Gun Association is to have every African American introduced to firearm use for home protection, competitive shooting, and outdoor recreational activities.
The founder and President of the National African American Gun Association is Philip Smith, a graduate of the University of California at Davis. He is an African-American Gun enthusiast and community organizer. He founded and started NAAGA with the primary goal to expose, educate, and motivate as many African American men and women to go out and purchase a firearm for self defense and to take training on proper gun use. NAAGA was officially started and launched on February 28, 2015, in honor of Black History Month.
According to a 2014 Pew survey, 19 percent of African Americans said they owned a gun, up from 15 percent in 2013.
