Welcome to the
Downstate New York Diasporans
Firearm Club


Our name was inspired by the term that defines any group that has been dispersed outside its traditional homeland, especially involuntarily, as Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade. We recognize our inherent connection to the “Motherland” as Black and Brown people who identify as Diasporans (Black, African-American, Caribbean, Latinx, AAPI, Indigenous, etc.) however we are open and accepting to people from all walks of life.


To create a more widely accepted “Firearms Lifestyle” amongst people of color (diasporans) that desire to be exposed to the world of firearms ownership for Home/Business/Self Defense, personal safety/survival and/or sport in a nurturing environment. We do this through engaging, educational, social and recreational activities, for emerging and seasoned firearm enthusiasts alike, to promote the upliftment of the collective.


The mission of the National African American Gun Association (NAAGA) is to establish a fellowship by educating on the rich legacy of gun ownership by African Americans, offering training that supports safe gun use for self defense and sportsmanship, and advocating for the inalienable right to self-defense for African Americans.
