Published

on

Gun Owners of America scored some solid victories in Maryland and Massachusetts.

According to a press release that it published on May 7, 2020, both of these states were able to get gun stores and shooting ranges to reopen.

GOA teamed up with other plaintiffs in Massachusetts who filed a lawsuit against the state’s shutdown of gun stores. Now, due to a ruling from a federal judge, gun stores can open up on May 9, 2020.

“GOA is pleased to see that gun stores will be reopened in Massachusetts. In times of emergencies, it is vital for people to be able to acquire the tools necessary to protect themselves and their families,” declared Erich Pratt, Senior Vice President of GOA.

In Maryland, police ordered some gun stores to close up based on law enforcement’s misreading of the state’s shut down order. GOA and its legal foundation (Gun Owners Foundation) sent a letter to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, demanding him to reopen gun ranges. The letter declared, “We urge you to bring Maryland into line with the vast majority of other states that have allowed shooting ranges to continue operation, and into line with the DHS CISA Memorandum, and federal and state constitutional requirements.” A few days after GOA issued the letter, Governor Hogan’s latest executive order declared that shooting ranges can be reopened.

“Just as with acquiring firearms, having a place to safely practice and train with firearms is critically important, even during a pandemic. GOA and GOF are happy to see gun ranges opening up in the Old Line State,” Pratt remarked.

GOA has been one of the leading organizations protecting the right to bear arms in America from a no compromise standpoint.

They can always be relied on to fight against gun grabbing schemes of all sizes and shapes.

Trump Administration Withdraws Nominee for ATF Director After Evasive Gun Control Answers in Senate

Chuck Canterbury avoided answering questions on gun control.

The Trump administration is withdrawing its nomination for Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, after Chuck Canterbury alienated several Republican Senators during his July confirmation hearing for refusing to give an answer to questions regarding his personal opinion on gun laws.

Canterbury avoided answering several questions from GOP senators during his testimony, claiming he didn’t want to express any opinions that contrasted with the stated policy views of the Fraternal Order of Police. Canterbury is the former President of that organization.

Senators such as Louisiana’s John Kennedy questioned Canterbury’s evasive testimony in July.

I like straight answers, and you are being evasive,” said Kennedy. “You have been nominated to run ATF. I think every member of this panel, both my Democratic friends and Republican friends who have feelings about the Second Amendment, are entitled to know both morally and legally what you believe.

Canterbury had been asked numerous times about his policy views on matters such as banning so-called “assault weapons.”

The ATF has tremendous power over the American gun industry and Second Amendment community, and in some cases have banned previously legal forms of weapons with impunity. Some firearms enthusiasts have become increasingly skeptical of the agency in recent years, and conservatives have sought additional oversight. High-level ATF leadership have spoken of what they believe to be a conspiracy against their agency, further alienating gun rights supporters.

The Trump administration formally informed the Senate that it was withdrawing Canterbury’s nomination on Tuesday. His ambiguous views towards common gun control proposals had ensured his nomination was stalled, and now pulled.
