"While Congress holds its gun control hearing in an anti-gun echo chamber, I want you to hear what American voters truly believe about our Second Amendment rights.

Gun Owners of America recently surveyed 17,012 American voters to hear what we had to say about gun control. Below are the results:

* Over 95% opposed Red Flag laws

* 98% would NOT vote to re-elect a legislator next November if he or she voted for a Red Flag law

* 92% would NOT vote to re-elect a legislator next November if he or she voted for Universal Background Checks

* 97% would NOT vote to re-elect a legislator next November if he or she voted for a so-called "assault weapons" ban

* 78% consider themselves a "single-issue voter" when it comes to gun rights

* 95% think that legislators should work to pass Constitutional Carry reciprocity as a real solution to stopping shooters

If you vote for any gun control measure including Red Flag Gun Grabs, expanded background checks, or “assault rifle” bans, you will be attacking our constitutional right to bear arms, attacking our constitutional right to due process, and turning your back on the American voters who trusted you to represent us in the Congress.

And come next election, I, and many of my fellow American citizens will remember whether you voted to uphold the United States Constitution or chose to cower before the anti-gun mob."


Cutting through the fake news of the irrational "do-something" emotional mainstream media every time a firearm is used in a so-called mass shooting.

I believe in Gun Owners of America, Incorporated.

Yes, US Congress and President Trump, DO SOMETHING is right!
Please pass national concealed carry if you happen to be reading this.
That would really be DOING SOMETHING productive.

I emailed my Senators tonight but it will surely fall on deaf ears. I live in New Jersey and they left wing hacks I emailed will most certainly vote for red flag laws.

GOA must be surveying most of its members in Red states like Texas, Idaho, Arizona, Wyoming and Oklahoma then.I'm sure they'd get a lot of pro-gun responses from their members in the Red counties of California as well. Sacramento, Placer, Fresno, Kern, Trinity, Siskiyou, Shasta, Sutter, Stanislaus, San Joaquin, Merced, Calaveras, King, Imperial, Orange, Tehama, Modoc and so on.

They say they want "expanded" background checks. What more do they want on the checks? Everything is covered on the 4473. Also the checks they use to OK the purchases are already in the government records.

As I expressed in a previous post, I am of the opinion that only law abiding citizens will summit to a background check to obtain a new gun, those people who know they are prohibited from owning a weapon WILL NOT summit to a background check they know may fail. Therefore the background check system is an exercise in futility, because, the people that we want to catch, WILL NOT summit to the check, thus, the check will fail in stooping a would be criminal from obtaining a weapon.
Background checks are like the TSA, something to make us feel safer while in reality does not protect us.

Most if not all mass shooters pass background checks to get their guns with flying colors already. Expanding checks will not do a damn thing to solve shooting issues. I'm not convinced a background check ever saved somebody's life. I am convinced a number of good people have died because background checks in error prevented them from getting guns for protection.

The police are always too late. The armed citizenry are the first responders.

You mean the govt. is registering guns and/or gun owners already with these checks?

It's possible they are registering gun owner every time they do a transaction. They aren't supposed to but who knows for sure? One thing that is for sure is they aren't registering the gun you buy. That info is not given to the NICS when called in, all they tell them is "long gun, handgun or other" other is usually a lower but i think others items fall into this category as well. The make, model and serial number are not given when a NICS check is done, it is retained on the 4473 form which stays at the gun shop.

Gun registration is a farce. What about the ones stolen and resold on the streets or all the ghost guns built at home? You can find the original salesperson and the original buyer from the 4473, but that will not find the gun.

Suffice it to say, I believe the GOA when they say NICS checks
are unconstitutional and truly ineffective at crime reduction.
The govt. meddles too much when it comes to Our Bill of Rights.

Didn't you believe the Founders when they said the same thing?

And the word is infringes, not meddles.
