GOA Campaign Against Anti-Gun Petraeus Bearing Fruit

"Gun Owners of America, the leading no-compromise pro-gun rights organization in the nation, sent out an e-mail highlighting the former general's rabid anti-gun rights extremism.... But the pressure from GOA and other powerful organizations that backed Trump may have paid off, as the most recent reports indicate that the president-elect appears to have soured on Petraeus."

Another name that has been highlighted as a possible Trump pick to lead the State Department is former general and CIA chief David Petraeus.

The pressure from GOA and other powerful organizations that backed Trump may have paid off, as the most recent reports indicate that the president-elect appears to have soured on Petraeus.

[Editor's Note: Trump eventually rejected the idea of picking the anti-gun Petraeus and nominated Rex Tillerson instead.]
