Jordan Stein, the Director of Communications for Gun Owners of America (GOA), sent out a news release about Greensboro, North Carolina mayor Nancy Vaughan reversing course on gun store closures.
Previously, Vaughan told the media that gun stores were not “essential” businesses.
After, GOA and Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC) contacted her, she changed her stance.
GOA and GRNC originally sent a Cease and Desist letter to make her revise her interpretation of what constitutes an essential business, or face legal action. Mayor Vaughan relayed to GOA and GRNC in an email that she was wrong in her original interpretation.
Stein noted that “While GOA and GRNC are thankful for the clarification, both organizations still look forward to seeing a public announcement by Mayor Vaughan to let the citizens of the Gate City know they can lawfully visit and purchase firearms and ammunition from gun stores during the ‘stay-at-home’ order.”
Additionally, Wake County, North Carolina has also let gun stores re-open their doors after a GOA and GRNC sent the county a similar letter
Times of crisis are when the petty tyrants come out of the woodwork.
Leftist-run urban centers across America are taking advantage of this crisis to infringe on the right to bear arms.
Many organizations like Gun Owners of America and a select few elected officials have answered the call by standing up to these attempts to infringe on gun rights.
More cities will likely be reversing course on this matter soon.
No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab
On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.
Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”
At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”
“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.
Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.
“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
