GOA-backed Amendment Could “Potentially Shut Down Parts of the United Nations”

Several gun owner rights victories have occurred recently in the united States Senate, including a vote that shut down the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. Among those victories is Senator Jim Inhofe's amendment, which Gun Owners of America claims has the potential to shut down parts of the United Nations if they stay on course with the ATT.

First, Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) added a committee amendment to deal with Obama's DOJ and their anti-gun Operation Choke Point. As a result, the bill wasn't even taken out on the floor of the senate. Well done, Senator Crapo.

Constitutional Carry Reciprocity Advances 2nd Amendment Rights

Recently, some of our good friends issued a statement criticizing federal reciprocity legislation.  We agree with them that the Nugent bill (H.R. 402) has problems, because it would force Americans in “constitutional carry” states to obtain permits in order to exercise their God-given rights.

Magazine Capacity Matters – Homeowner Exchanges 30+ Shots With Home Invader

This story is a perfect example of why magazine capacity matters. Sure, most of the defensive gun uses we report on this site are over and done with just a few rounds (or no rounds fired at all). However, there are situations where you might find yourself in a battle for your life and every round in that magazine will count.

Defensive Gun Use of the Day: Terminal Recidivism Edition

Years before a coroner pronounced 31-year-old Jermoid Wheeler dead after trying to break into a home, he had been sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery. He was given credit for time served and released in June 2014, after serving just half of his term.

Rep. Stockman Helping GOA Start Gun Clubs On Campus
-- Do you know someone who can help win the hearts and minds of the next generation?

Tuesday, June 20, 2006

Do you know someone who is pro-gun, who likes working with college age kids, and who is in need of a full-time job in the fall?

Well if so, former Rep. Steve Stockman (R) has a deal for him.

Stockman is the Director of the Campus Leadership Program (CLP) in northern Virginia. The CLP is a project of the Leadership Institute, which trains conservative activists and places them in key level positions around the country -- both in government and the media.

The CLP project focuses specifically on college campuses, helping conservative students start independent groups that are fighting to reclaim the campus from decades of leftist abuses. The CLP has started 722 conservative clubs in schools in all 50 states.

But they have very few gun clubs, which is something they would like to change.

That's why this is a unique opportunity for someone who likes working with college-aged kids. They can help the pro-gun cause in the fall by starting a GOA gun club on campus or by working as a field representative. Every field rep who starts a gun group will be paid between $400-500. Kids can make as much as $1,000 a week.

But realize, it's not just about the money. It's about preserving our Second Amendment rights.

It doesn't matter how many battles we win today. If we lose the hearts and minds of the next generation, we will never win the ultimate battle to regain our lost rights.

ACTION & CONTACT INFORMATION: If you know someone who is interested in helping start a GOA gun club on campus, please send his contact information to Steve Stockman at the Campus Leadership Program. You can reach Steve Stockman at the Campus Leadership Program by using one of the following methods:
