Gun Owners of America (GOA) is a gun rights organization in the United States with over 1.5 million members. It makes efforts to differentiate itself from the larger National Rifle Association (NRA) and has publicly criticized the NRA on multiple occasions for what they consider to be compromising on gun rights issues and thereby selling out the gun rights movement.
The GOA has often been in opposition to the NRA in its endorsements and ratings of politicians and candidates. For instance, the GOA was outspoken in its opposition to John McCain's 2008 presidential bid, describing his gun-rights voting record as "abysmal, wretched, and pathetic" and giving him an F- grade on Second Amendment issues since 2004, while the NRA (through its PAC, the NRA-PVF) gave him a C+. The GOA took issue with the NRA over the 2007 NICS Improvement Act.The GOA has been described by Congressman Ron Paul as "The only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington." This quote from Paul has long been displayed prominently on the home page of the Gun Owners of America website, and Paul was the only 2008 presidential candidate to receive an A+ grade from Gun Owners of America.

    Good people, the non gun owners in Oregon, are just finding out that it is illegal for them to protect and defend themselves.

    This man is advocating for the genocide of gun owners. Oh yes, he is also now going to run for President of the USA.
