Why Is The New York Times So Upset With GOA?

 

 

 

” Of special note, the magazine reports how one week after you received an important email alert from GOA in April, the key players on Capitol Hill who were trying to pull off a compromise “suddenly and without notice backed away from the background-checks bill.”

  This is not a new revelation for the news agency that supports greater firearm restrictions. On April 3 of this year, the New York Times said that “Gun Owners of America, with its war chest, membership and lobbying strength dwarfed by the National Rifle Association, is emerging as an influential force….

“ The group [GOA] has already been successful,” the Times says, “[in] freezing senators, particularly Republicans, who have appeared to be on the fence about supporting bills to expand background checks.”

  You can read Sunday’s article about GOA here and the April article here.

  As you can see from these media reports, your loud voice convinced Republicans (and key pro-gun lobbyists inside the Beltway) to back off of gun control compromises — and that has safeguarded our gun rights through a very intense battle.”

Gun Owners Of America: For When The NRA Hasn’t ‘Gone Far Enough’

 

 

 

” Gun Owners of America has far fewer members and much less money than the better-known NRA, but the group is emerging as an influential voice in Washington.

A gun rights group working feverishly to prevent the passage of several gun control bills in Congress has apparently caught the ear of several lawmakers. No, it’s not the National Rifle Association.

Gun Owners of America, a lobbying organization that’s been around since 1975, doesn’t get nearly as much media attention as the larger, better-funded and better-known NRA, but its voice is increasingly being heard on Capitol Hill.

Gun Owners of America’s mission is to “preserve and defend the Second Amendment rights of gun owners.” It has about 300,000 dues-paying members, compared with 5 million for the NRA. The group spent $1.3 million last year to lobby Congress, while the NRA spent nearly $3 million, according to the Times.

Pratt told MSN News his group is “totally separate” from, and often at odds with, the NRA. 

GOA makes it a point to differentiate itself from the larger NRA. Pratt told the Times that part of the group’s mission is to stay on top of the NRA “when we don’t think they’ve gone far enough.”

Ron Paul, the libertarian congressman from Texas, has called the GOA “the only no-compromise gun lobby in America.”

Pratt told MSN News: “The reason we why we oppose the background checks, the measure currently at the top of the wish list of other side, is that all evidence points to it becoming a national gun registry.”

 

 

 

 

Time For Law Abiding Gun Owners To Stand And Fight For Their 2A Rights

 

 

 

 

” It’s no secret that the recent mass shootings are being used and manipulated to slowly erode, gnaw at and diminish the 2nd Amendment.

The Diane Feinstein’s and Mike Bloomberg’s of this country essentially want to neuter the 2nd Amendment so it’s essentially just a privilege in name only, not a Right as guaranteed by our Bill of Rights. President Barack Hussein Obama has initiated 23 Executive Orders, which potentially could put 2A rights on a very slippery slope and blur the lines of HIPPA laws and personal health information (PHI) as it relates to gun ownership.

Now more than ever, each and every law abiding gun owner needs to stand up and be heard. That action can take many shapes and forms. Recently there have been a host of states where Guns Across America rallies have been organized and citizens have exercised their 1st Amendment right to support their 2nd amendment right! Bravo!!

Oppose Joe Manchin’s Veterans Gun Ban and National Gun Registry

 

 

 

” Reports out of Capitol Hill reveal that just-reelected turncoat West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is about to stick a big knife in the back of American gun owners.  And to make matters worse, he’s lying about what he’s doing.
Both Manchin and House anti-gun crazy Carolyn McCarthy are claiming to be “working with NRA” to enact gun bans and national gun registries. NRA says flatly that Manchin is lying, and we believe he is. (The Hill, 1/24/13)

150,000 honest law-abiding veterans are currently in the NICS system.  They didn’t do anything wrong; they honorably served their country.  But when they sought VA counseling for a traumatic combat experience, the VA appointed a fiduciary to oversee their fiscal affairs and then took away their guns.  And, again, there are 150,000 honest veterans in the system.

What the Manchin bill is about is insuring that “bad guys” like veterans can’t get guns.  And, under Barack Obama’s “Executive Action #1,” the NICS list could soon include tens of millions of additional soldiers, police, firemen, and other law-abiding Americans.”

Some reflections on our present state of affairs from Gun Owners of America 

 

  “In America nowadays, when all you have to do is infer that someone MIGHT be up to something that appears to be possibly terroristic in nature you can shred the 4th Amendment right and do whatever it takes in pursuit of him.  

Then we have the TSA.  Workers whose starting salary grade is $17,000 a year are given absolute power over whether you are allowed to travel or not.  And I don’t mean that these people are stopping you because you have brought anthrax on a plane or reek of plutonium.  They can kick you off just because they don’t like you.  I feel bad for all the beautiful women who are subjected tocancer causing backscatter screens just because some agent wants to get his jollies off.  Or for people who have been sexually assaulted having to relive the experience at one of the agents grope fests.

Not only is the government fighting to keep the TSA in airports they are trying to expand it to bus terminals, train stations and on the streets.”

UN Arms Treaty Dead

   ” For now, thanks to the efforts of so many politically active supporters, we have bought some time before the next arms treaty. And that day will come. The gun grabbers know they’re running a marathon, not a sprint. They are patient and will work out a more narrowly crafted treaty that still slices away at our liberty.”

 

Be sure and thank the Senators who signed the Moran letter and pledged to stop the approval of the treaty in the US . Gun Owners of America has provided a list of those Senators . Is yours on it ?
