MICHAEL HAMMOND, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA If you haven’t seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi, don’t worry, I’m not going to give away any spoilers! But it’s comical how close-to-real-life a Science Fiction movie can be.  And, how it can hold significant warnings for American gun owners. In The Last Jedi, two of the...
MICHAEL HAMMOND, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA I can't recall anything like this in recent memory. Some pro-gun supporters are clamoring for legislation that has the "who's who" of the anti-gun Democrat movement cosponsoring it. I'm talking about S. 2135, the anti-gun Fix NICS bill, where Democrat Senators Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer and...
ALEX MOREY, THEFIRE.ORG Hampshire College tells FIRE it will change its event-scheduling policies after it canceled an event by Second Amendment activist Antonia Okafor a mere two hours before it was scheduled to begin last Thursday evening  — and then scrambled to issue a late-night apology for the cancellation just hours later. But...
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 Yesterday, the House Rules Committee voted to combine the reciprocity and anti-gun "Fix NICS" bills (H.R. 38 and H.R. 4477). The combined bill now goes to the House floor, with votes scheduled for today. Because of the united push from gun control groups, the NRA and many House...
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 There's an old adage that says: “When you’ve dug yourself into a hole, stop digging.” Texas Senator John Cornyn -- the second most powerful Senator in Washington -- is a traditionally pro-gun friend who made a big mistake by sponsoring a bad gun control bill. But,...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA There was great news coming out of the House Judiciary Committee this week! By a 19-11 vote, the Constitutional Carry-friendly reciprocity legislation was voted out of the House committee and is now on its way to passage by the full House. This is H.R. 38, which...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA What a nightmare.  Our nation is still suffering the consequences of eight years of Obama gun control. During most of 2017, Gun Owners Foundation -- the legal arm of GOA -- has been working to defend Jeremy Kettler, a combat veteran, against criminal charges brought...
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...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA I have no where else to turn but to you. Anti-gun politicians in Washington are requesting President Trump use the ATF to impose immediate gun control in America. I’m calling on you and the millions of gun owners in this country to stand up and urge...
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...
ERICH PRATT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA Gun Owners of America has alerted you this year to great legislation in Congress that would protect your ears and hearing while you spend time enjoying your Second Amendment rights. Today, that effort took a step forward. A House subcommittee heard testimony on HR 3668 --...
SECOND AMENDMENT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA I hope you had a relaxed and enjoyable August. I also hope you're in "fighting form" to work with us and make September a turning point for progress on Second Amendment rights. What happens in the next month will set the tone for the remainder of...
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...
Professors who claimed Texas's new campus concealed carry law would hurt their ability to teach had their lawsuit tossed from court this week, after a federal judge ruled they couldn't prove they were actually harmed. The three professors had argued that allowing guns in their classrooms would violate their...
KATRINA WILLS, HERITAGE FOUNDATION This fall, some Colorado teachers will return to school armed with knowledge—and guns. Laura Carno, author of “Government Ruins Nearly Everything: Reclaiming Social Issues from Uncivil Servants,” is bringing advanced firearms training to school teachers. “Can government stop school shooting? The answer is no … How do we...
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.

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,...
TIM MACY, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA It was a classic media-driven "October surprise." Only it occurred on the eve of a critical special election in May -- for the Montana open congressional seat vacated by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. I'm sure you've heard about what happened on Wednesday, when a Leftist reporter...
SECOND AMENDMENT, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA Many Americans have been permanently prevented from purchasing firearms because of a Chuck Schumer amendment -- enacted in the early 1990s -- that prevents many potential gun buyers from getting their rights restored. Click on the Take Action button to contact the House CJS Subcommittee chairman, Rep....
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.
