2017 is the Second Highest Gun Sales of All Time

“The demand for buying firearms is still strong, given that gun sales in 2017 were the second highest of all time,” said Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America. “The record-setting year was 2016, and that is most likely attributable to panic buyers fearing a gun-grabbing Hillary Clinton presidency.”

Firing Back -- Bulletproof

In the classic movie, It's a Wonderful Life, George Bailey has a dramatic and profound effect on several people’s lives. This episode of Firing Back explores two real life George Baileys. The first saved dozens of lives during a terrorist attack. Then he later survived a second criminal attack, making him a real “Bulletproof” hero. But he would never have been capable of performing those heroic feats were it not for the encouragement of a second "George Bailey" -- a man who is very familiar to GOA members.

NRA gets pragmatic, backs background check fix

“We’re very concerned that more law-abiding people are going to be thrown into the NICS system,” said Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America. “It’s a broken system, we don’t want to fix it, want to fix it for good by repealing it.”

Top gun rights priority prospects dim, even in GOP-controlled Washington

“The gun rights community does not appreciate the fact that reciprocity languished for so long, and then following two tragic shootings, it seems the first initial response from some in the GOP was, ‘We need additional gun control,’ aka the NICS fix,” said Erich Pratt, executive director of the gun rights group Gun Owners of America.

Ammunition Restriction Study. Senators Larry Craig (R-ID) and Bill Frist (R-TN) offered this amendment to S. 1805. Among other things, the language of this provision would commission the Attorney General to determine whether the ban on so-called "cop killer" ammunition should include superior performance bullets in popular hunting calibers such as the 30-06. The amendment passed the Senate 85-12 on March 2, 2004.
  1. McCain Gun Show Ban. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) offered a gun show amendment (to S. 1805) on March 2, 2004. His language would outlaw the private sale of firearms at gun shows, unless the buyer agrees to submit to a background registration check. Also, it could effectively eliminate gun shows because every member of an organization sponsoring a gun show could be imprisoned if the organization fails to notify each and every "person who attends the special firearms event of the requirements [under the Brady Law]." Thus, if the person responsible for handing out "Brady pamphlets" took a break to go to the bathroom, everyone responsible for the event could be sent to prison. The McCain amendment passed the Senate by a vote of 53-47.
  2. Feinstein Semi-auto Ban. On March 2, 2004, the Senate voted 52-47 in favor of the amendment offered by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). This amendment would extend the ban that was signed into law by President Clinton in 1994 -- a ban which outlaws certain magazines and more than 180 semi-automatic firearms. Without this legislative extension, the ban would sunset in September 2004. The Feinstein amendment passed as an amendment to S. 1805.
  3. Lock Up Your Safety Requirement . This amendment, offered by Senator Herb Kohl (D-WI) on February 26, 2004, passed the Senate 70-27. This amendment would require all handgun purchasers to pay an implicit "gun tax" by requiring them to buy a trigger lock when they purchase their handgun, irrespective of need. In addition, the amendment would create a broad and implicit cause of action against gun owners who fail to actually use the storage device to lock up their firearms. Of course, a locked gun then becomes unavailable for self-defense. The Kohl amendment passed as an amendment to S. 1805.
