GOA Alert: The Battle Will Take Longer than We'd Hoped

But there’s still a very good chance we can win!

“Gun Owners of America [has] been pressing lawmakers who may have wavered on this emotional issue of background checks.”
- CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, April 10, 2013

We've been fighting these gun control battles for almost 40 years now. And we almost always win. But it's almost always a nail-biter.

And so it is on Obama's gun control agenda.

Missouri CCW info to feds...but why?

Missouri CCW info given to feds, but why?

Wednesday’s revelation that the names of Missouri citizens who have concealed weapons permits have been twice turned over to federal authorities, apparently without written request, raises alarms that the same thing might happen in other states, including Washington, where about 411,000 people have been issued state concealed pistol licenses.

Letter from NRA Institute for Legislative Action Executive Director Chris Cox to the United States Senate On Background Checks

Dear Senator,

I am writing regarding the National Rifle Association’s position on several firearms-related proposals under consideration in the Senate.


Sixteen Republicans Go Soft
By Harold Hutchison

The United States Senate moved on to debate a gun bill that would impose wide-ranging background checks on all gun purchases. This comes as the NRA announced that it would “score” the votes on some of the amendments that will come up.

The Senate vote to end a filibuster lead by Rand Paul on the motion to proceed was 68-31, with sixteen Republicans voting to move the bill to the floor of the United States Senate, while Democrats Mark Pryor and Mark Begich, both facing tough re-election races, voted to sustain the filibuster.

GOA ALERT: Sen. Toomey Betrays Gun Owners

Sellout is worse than the Feinstein gun ban!

Urgent action required. It is urgent that every gun owner call their Senators today and demand that they oppose the “See a Shrink, Lose your Guns” sell-out bill that is being authored by Senators Pat Toomey (R) and Joe Manchin (D) - but which also has Chuck Schumer’s fingerprints all over it. Call immediately at 202-224-3121.

Statement from the National Rifle Association Regarding Toomey-Manchin Background Check Proposal

Expanding background checks at gun shows will not prevent the next shooting, will not solve violent crime and will not keep our kids safe in schools. While the overwhelming rejection of President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg's "universal" background check agenda is a positive development, we have a broken mental health system that is not going to be fixed with more background checks at gun shows. The sad truth is that no background check would have prevented the tragedies in Newtown, Aurora or Tucson.


Eight Wimp Out, Won’t Oppose Motion to Debate
By Harold Hutchison

Gun-grabbing Democrats in the Senate may be able to bypass Rand Paul’s filibuster with a cloture vote as early as Thursday as at least eight Republican Senators announced they would not support a filibuster on a motion to proceed. Among the Senators announcing that they would not back a filibuster are: Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Dean Heller (Nev.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Susan Collins (Maine), Pat Toomey (Pa.), Mark Kirk (Ill.) and Kelly Ayotte (N.H.).

Who Voted to Let the UN Grab Your Guns?

Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations. In a 53-46 vote, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

The Statement of Purpose from the bill read:
To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
