GOA Opposes Anti-Gun William Barr for Attorney General

Springfield, VA – Gun Owners of America’s executive director, Erich Pratt, stated the following in regard to William Barr’s nomination for Attorney General:

“Gun owners are very disappointed that President Trump’s nominee for Attorney General is a committed, gun control advocate. Barr says that the ‘single most important thing’ he can do in the area of gun control is to support Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders, which have already resulted in the death of an innocent gun owner in Maryland. GOA will be urging Senators to OPPOSE the nomination of William Barr when he is voted on in committee — and on the Senate floor.

Erich Pratt, or another GOA spokesman, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over 1.5 million members and activists.
