No Compromise Gun Organization Achieves Victories in Maryland and Massachusetts

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.
