The organization known as being the most consistent supporter of the 2nd Amendment is Gun Owners of America. They’re generally referred to as “no compromise.” From my experience, I can’t find a thing to disagree with there.
I like that, since our organization is no compromise on the Constitution as well. We regularly repeat our goal, The Constitution. Every issue, every time. No exceptions, no excuses.
TAC and GOA would make great partners in support of the right to keep and bear arms. That’s why it was really good to see them tweet out a link to our 2nd Amendment Preservation Act today.

It’s a powerful piece of legislation which would require a state – and its political subdivisions – to stop enforcing federal laws regarding firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition. It would also ban the same from even assisting or participating in any way in those enforcement measures.
Not only did James Madison specifically consider such a “refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union” to be a “powerful means” to stand up to the Federal government, he also said that when a number of states did this, it would make it nearly impossible for the federal government to enforce their so-called laws.

James Madison was a pretty smart guy – and all one needs for proof is a quick review of any recent ATF enforcement action, which are almost always a cooperative effort with state and local law enforcement – who often do the bulk of the work on the ground. First step to stopping federal gun control? Stop helping them do it!
Does this mean GOA “endorses” the Act? No, not necessarily. But at very least, they’re encouraging the public to take a look.
Thanks for the tip of the hat, Gun Owners of America. I hope we can work together to get this bill passed in every state of the country!
