MICHAEL HAMMOND, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA When campaigning, Donald Trump said he would respect and honor the Second Amendment. Instead, he continues to push ahead on bump stock regulations which would turn 500,000 gun owners into felons.  And the regulations would arguably do the same for the millions of Americans who...
TIM MACY, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA You probably heard the news: House Speaker Paul Ryan will be stepping down from Congress this year. And that means that commitments are being made right now to decide who the next Speaker will be -- assuming that Republicans win retain the House this November. That's...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA You have been lied to. Republican Congressmen who swore they were on our side, caved to the pressure of their far-left colleagues and passed gun control. Now there are calls to repeal the Second Amendment, even by a former United States Supreme Court Justice. Responsible gun owners...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA Concealed carry reciprocity may be dead -- forever -- if some in the House and Senate Republican leadership have their way. That’s why I need you to call your Representative immediately. It is imperative that thousands upon thousands of gun owners call to explain that a...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA Let me be perfectly clear, any compromise on our Second Amendment freedoms is an infringement we cannot support. “House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was optimistic Thursday that the Republican-controlled Congress can pass comprehensive gun legislation…” –L.A. Times 3/1/18 “Chuck Schumer calls for improved background checks and other reforms to...
SECOND AMENDMENT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA Lewis G. Carroll said it first: "First the execution; then the trial." On Wednesday, Donald Trump echoed that sentiment when he said: "Take the guns first; go through due process later." Well, that's not exactly the way due process is supposed to work. But Trump made these...
SECOND AMENDMENT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA Last year the House successfully passed a concealed carry reciprocity bill to protect gun owners’ Second Amendment rights from anti-gun state governments. Unfortunately, that bill had gun control legislation attached to it. And now anti-gun politicians in the Senate are blocking any action on concealed...
MICHAEL HAMMOND, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA The Senate held its first hearings Wednesday on the most serious gun control threat in over a decade. The bill is the Cornyn-Schumer-Feinstein-Blumenthal-Murphy legislation, S. 2135.  And it would bribe the states and force federal agencies to send every possible eligible name to the national...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA This is the big week. It looks like at long last, the House will finally vote on a concealed carry reciprocity bill, H.R. 38, which includes protections for residents of Constitutional Carry states. The expected vote could come Wednesday or Thursday. If the Constitutional Carry reciprocity bill...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA I just sent a letter to President Trump. The Las Vegas shooting has spawned a feeding frenzy among the political left. And in response, some Republicans are asking the President to use the ATF to impose gun control. This is the reason that I wrote...
JORDAN STEIN, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA It's an amazing thing. A Muslim radical used a Home Depot truck to kill eight people in New York City on Tuesday. But the Mayor of the city and the Governor of the state just couldn't resist efforts to call for more gun control at a news...
TIM MACY, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA I spoke with pro-gun Senator Ted Cruz over the weekend. He told me that he and other pro-gun Senators, like Mike Lee of Utah, were expecting Democrats to offer anti-gun amendments to the budget bill. But they were flabbergasted when the gun grabbers in the...
SECOND AMENDMENT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA This is becoming painful to watch. House Speaker Paul Ryan is now asking -- begging, really -- the Trump administration to unilaterally impose gun control restrictions. And there is virtually no conceivable way that these restrictions will fall short of eventually regulating or banning your detachable...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA Everyone at Gun Owners of America was extremely troubled and saddened to see the tragic and terrifying report of the shooting in Las Vegas. GOA and all our employees send the sincerest prayers for the victims, their families, and all involved in this heartbreaking incident. At...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA Republican Senator Rand Paul (KY) is gearing up for one last chance at repealing a pernicious gun control law. And he needs our help. I'm talking about the anti-gun provisions of ObamaCare, which Democrats rammed through in 2010. Senator Rand Paul's office has told me that he...
JORDAN STEIN, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA As you know, Gun Owners of America strongly opposes all types of gun control -- including the National Firearms Act and the NICS background check system. And now there's a bill that will deal a major blow to both of those ugly marks on the...
LARRY PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA It's an inconvenient truth -- for the Left. But when we celebrate the independence of our great country tomorrow -- the greatest, most powerful, and, generally speaking, the most beneficent nation in the history of the Earth -- what we are celebrating is the use of guns...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA Great news! The concealed carry reciprocity bill (H.R. 38) has just reached 200 backers in Congress. With 199 cosponsors, plus chief sponsor Richard Hudson (R-NC), support for the bill has reached an almost unprecedented level of support. GOA will continue working to get more cosponsors.  And we...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA No doubt you’ve heard the sad news today -- the tragic shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, which is just 20 minutes from our offices here at Gun Owners of America. Several people were shot and wounded, one of them being House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. There...
GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA, JOHN VELLECO A year ago, amending the provisions of the overbearing and unconstitutional National Firearms Act would have been considered “a long shot.” And yet, here we are.  A free-standing bill to remove suppressors from the act -- dubbed the “Hearing Protection Act” -- has 146 cosponsors,...
LIBERTY ALERTS, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to again take up a "repeal and replace" bill for the anti-gun ObamaCare law.   The Washington Examiner recently reported that, "Key negotiators are working on a new proposal to repeal and replace ObamaCare, led by Rep. Mark Meadows,...
GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA, ERICH PRATT I was in a congressional office recently with several members of GOA’s staff. We had been walking the halls of Congress, introducing Shaneen Allen to several congressional offices. Shaneen is the Philadelphia mom who was incarcerated for over 40 days -- all because her Pennsylvania carry...
