GOA a “No Show” for White House Gun Summit
Gun Owners of America will not have a representative at the White House today when Vice President Joe Biden meets with the gun industry. We were not invited, perhaps because it is well known that our reading of the Constitution -- and the “shall not be infringed” language in the Second Amendment -- precludes us from agreeing to any gun control “compromises.”
Joe Biden is talking about making an end-around the Constitution via the Executive Order route. This does not surprise us given the administration’s antipathy to the Constitution and its disdain for the God-given right of self-defense that all gun owners enjoy.
To be clear: Gun Owners of America will not agree to any limitations or restrictions that would “infringe” the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans.
