Well, it was a long, hard fight.

You spent nearly a year working with GOA to kill the anti-gun ObamaCare bill, even though much of the time, people were saying that its passage was inevitable … that it was going to pass no matter what we did.

But as you know, it wasn’t inevitable, and we almost beat the anti-gun legislation that passed last night.  By 4 pm yesterday, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi still did not have enough votes to pass this monstrosity!

If you were watching the “sausage making” on Sunday — or have been listening to the news today — you know that we narrowly lost the battle over ObamaCare.  [Click here to see how your Representative voted.]

That’s the bad news.  The good news is that we only lost a battle… for the war is not over.  Here’s what your GOA is doing to stall ObamaCare in its tracks:

* Gun Owners of America has been working in Virginia to pass legislation that will exempt citizens from purchasing ObamaCare.  This legislation has passed both houses and is now sitting on Governor Bob McDonnell’s desk.  He is expected to sign this bill tomorrow, making the Old Dominion the first state to take such an action.  Other states are looking to follow Virginia’s example, and you can be sure that GOA will be involved in those states, as well.

* GOA is ready to assist the 38 states which are now planning to file suit against the anti-gun health care law as soon as the President signs it tomorrow.  Over ten years ago, GOA helped Sheriffs Richard Mack and Jay Printz sue the federal government after the Brady Law required law enforcement to run background checks.  You may remember that in Printz v. U.S. (1997), the Supreme Court ruled in our favor.  We will now try to parlay that victory and make the same case here, namely, that the federal government can not force state authorities to act on its behest.

* Finally, GOA is committed to targeting the sell-out congressmen who turned a deaf ear to your letters, phone calls and emails.  For almost a year, Gun Owners of America has been the ONLY gun group at the national level working to kill this legislation.  Some thought this was an impossible battle… but what they don’t realize is that even though we narrowly lost, the fight has been well-worth the effort.

Why?  Because the sleeping giant has been awakened… the American people have been radicalized and they are ready to kick the bums out of office.  This sentiment would not have happened if we had remained silent and had sat on our hands.

So with your help, we will make legislators pay for their arrogance in November!

But to do all of this, we are going to need your help.  Will you stand with us?

We need 100% participation from our members to help make a difference.  We realize that times are tough, so even if you can spare only a few dollars, would you please help us take on the giant Obama-machine?

Please go to the GOA website and tell us you’ll be part of this effort to repeal ObamaCare.  At you can contribute to GOA.

Thank you.  Every little bit helps!

    Well, like all the rest of you, I have been disgusted, mad, ready to scream, ready to fight.. you name it….because of these maniacal socialist anti-American Obots ramming this healthcare bill down our throats ‘for our own good.’ The first light on the horizon today was an article by House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) about 39 states and their governors filing their own Freedom of Health Care Act(s). Thank goodness, the individual states are NOT going to put up with THEIR constituants being railroaded.

    The second light came with this article about GOA. (Thank you, Lynn for posting it.) I have been a member for years. This is a great organization that really does care about the country and the Constitution. I am even fortunate enough to have a long distance telephone company who gives a percentage of the money collected from my bill to GOA. It is absolutely great to find out that GOA is going to be there behind all of these courageous states and their governors who are not going to take this passage of OBAMACARE lying down. GOA is one organization I do not mind donating to… over and over again….

    Gun Owners is so-o-o much better than the National Rifle Association and always has been. If you have a problen NRA send weasel lawyer letters, if anything, where GOA will try to help. I’m still a member of NRA, but they are mostly gutless about fighting the sleeze-bags and commies. Send your money to GOA! They are real.
