Gun Owners of America Blasts Joe Biden’s Attack on Second Amendment
On April 8, 2021, Gun Owners of America, released a statement after President Joe Biden announced a number of gun control measures via executive order, a clear sign of executive overreach.
Erich Pratt, GOA’s Senior Vice President, issued the following statement:
Gun Owners of America is wholeheartedly opposed to the unconstitutional gun control threatened today by President Biden – restrictions such as the attacks on homemade and brace equipped firearms and so-called ‘Red Flag’ Gun Confiscation Orders.
Joe Biden knows he cannot beat gun owners in Congress. Instead, he’s circumventing the legislative process to impose his own tyrannical vison by executive fiat.
GOA is committed to the defense of gun owners, their pistol-braced firearms, do-it-yourself firearm kits, unserialized homemade firearms, as well as any other lawfully-purchased, constitutionally protected items the Biden Administration proposes to criminalize or confiscate.
GOA’s grassroots members are primed and ready to fight back against whatever Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment violations Joe Biden is cooking up with his state-level so-called ‘Red Flag’ Gun Confiscation Order proposal.
GOA is also shocked at the brazen decision to nominate a registered anti-gun lobbyist to be Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. David Chipman’s anti-constitutional lobbying career clearly disqualifies him from holding public office.
GOA will spare no expense to defeat Biden’s tyrannical agenda and will rally gun owners and Second Amendment supporters nationwide to defend the right to keep and bear arms.
Biden’s executive order consisted of new restrictions on “ghost guns”, Department of Justice efforts to push for red flag gun confiscation orders, the reclassification of AR-15 pistols, and a DOJ-sponsored effort to research gun trafficking. GOA is one of the few organizations who takes a no compromise stance to federal gun control.
Since its founding in the mid-1970s, GOA has remained a principled source of Second Amendment advocacy that the Right can look to for inspiration. No matter the gun grabs being put forward, any die-hard Second Amendment activist can count on GOA to oppose it.
