Ben Dorr serves on the Board of Directors for the American Firearms Association and is a political activist with over 10 years of experience ranging from local to statewide electoral politics and focusing on legislative action through the power of mobilized grassroots gun owners.
In 2015, Ben and his wife moved to Minnesota to head up operations as the the Political Director for Minnesota Gun Rights, fighting in the state legislature to stop radical gun control and advance pro-gun legislation, in a time when gun owners were being stabbed in the back by local “pro-gun” organizations.
Over the last several years Ben has been extremely active in Minnesota politics, working with gun owners to stop city-wide gun bans in places like Savage and Bloomington, organizing pro-gun rallies with thousands of gun owners and putting pressure on the legislature to stand and fight for the Second Amendment.
Under Ben’s leadership, Minnesota Gun Rights turned into a massive fighting force in state politics with their members and supporters stopping EVERY Bloomberg backed gun-control bill in the Minnesota Legislature and booting out many Bloomberg endorsed candidates at election time, flipping the Minnesota Senate Majority in 2016.
In 2018, Ben coordinated efforts in nearby Wisconsin and now directs operations for the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition, assisting in their efforts to stop Red Flag Gun Seizures in Madison.
Ben has also consulted on messaging and communication with Ohio Gun Owners, the Missouri Firearms Coalition, Iowa Gun Owners and Wyoming Gun Owners, assisting in the passage of Stand-Your-Ground law in MO, IA and WY.
Ben is proud to fight tooth and nail alongside his brothers, gun owners in Minnesota and across America in an uncompromising battle to defend and advance our God-given Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
Ben, his wife Anna and their two boys reside in Northfield, MN and he loves history on the birth of America, gun rights, hunting and feels right at home behind the sticks of a Case 580 Super N backhoe.
