GOA, GOF Petition VA to Restore Veteran’s Gun Rights

Springfield, VA – Gun Owners of America (GOA) and Gun Owners Foundation (GOF) have submitted a petition to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to restore the gun rights of over a quarter of a million veterans.

“For years, GOA has fought against VA’s practice of submitting names of veterans who need a fiduciary to the National Instant Check System (NICS), effectively banning these veterans from owning guns,” Aidan Johnston, Director of Federal Affairs for GOA, said. “It’s a disgrace to infringe the rights of those who have taken up arms for our country abroad, only to have that right taken away when they return home.”

The petition can be viewed here.

Aidan Johnston, or another GOA spokesperson, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America, and its sister organization Gun Owners Foundation, are nonprofits dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. For more information, visit GOA’s Press Center.
