A new ‘pro-gun organization’ has popped up just in time for the November elections, according to Ammoland, and aims to take some of the wind out of the NRA sails.
The group was created by the Giffords gun control group and is named Gun Owners for Safety.
Their explanation for the movement tells the story.
and according to The Hill, “It seeks to offer gun owners an alternative to the NRA, which remains stringently opposed to most anti-gun violence proposals.”
It has chapters that have suddenly appeared in swing states.
By no small coincidence, it already reportedly has chapters in key swing states, including Texas, Colorado and Minnesota, and claims to be building chapters in Michigan, Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. They also “plan on building out chapters in Nevada, Vermont, Oregon, South Carolina, and Wisconsin.”
We can prevent gun violence while also supporting the Second Amendment. Gun Owners for Safety unites hunters, sport shooters, and collectors who want commonsense gun laws.
For too long, gun laws in our country have made it too easy to get a gun without a rigorous background check.
