GOA, VCDL Sue Gov. Northam’s Closure of Gun Ranges

Springfield, VA – Gun Owners of America (GOA) and the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) have sought a temporary injunction against Gov. Northam to reopen indoor gun ranges within the Commonwealth.

“Despite federal guidance which deems gun ranges as essential, Gov. Northam continues his ‘guns for me, but not for thee’ decree in the Old Dominion. Consider, he has allowed police to use indoor ranges, but the average citizen cannot practice his or her right to self-defense at an indoor range in these uncertain times,” Pratt said.

The complaint can viewed here and the exhibits here.

Erich Pratt, or another GOA spokesperson, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit grassroots lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over two million members and activists. For more information, visit GOA’s Press Center.
