Gun Owners of America
The Gun Owners of America (GOA) is a non-profit conservative gun rights lobbying organization based in Virgina and founded in 1975 by Senator H.L. Bill Richardson (now retired). GOA most consistently supports the right to bear arms (both for the individual citizen's self defense and for the Militia) under the Second Amendment, and related rights necessary to preserve the Second Amendment right, such as the First Amendment right of political free speech.
"GOA fought for and won, the right of gun owners to sue and recover damages from the federal government's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) for harassment and unlawful seizure of firearms.
Larry Pratt has been Executive Director of Gun Owners of America for over 30 years.
