Gun Owners of America (GOA) published a report entitled “Top Ten in 2016.”
The report highlights the top ten accomplishments of GOA and its members during 2016. Among these, influencing the Supreme Court and pushing for Constitutional Carry stand out as notable highpoints.
The report states that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas broke a ten-year silence by using a brief submitted by GOA and its foundation to formulate a question that “stumped” Obama administration attorneys.
Additionally, the report states that four more states have “Constitutional Carry” thanks to GOA’s efforts. “GOA-backed legislation legalizing permitless carry passed in four states this year — Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri and West Virginia,” the reports states.
Furthermore, the report notes a quote from Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid. “Senate Republicans continue to cower [before] the Gun Owners of America… Gun Owners of America is even worse than bad,” Reid stated.
Erich Pratt, Executive Director for GOA, is pleased with this year’s efforts. “GOA’s effectiveness is due to our members. We represent over 1.5 million gun owners and activists, who regularly light up the phone lines on Capitol Hill when needed,” Pratt states.
