Currently, GOF has filed a lawsuit against the ATF and DOJ to stop their ban on bump stocks. A successful challenge in this case will prevent a future anti-gun president from using these regs to ban AR-15s and other semi-automatic firearms. Please help support this lawsuit to preserve our rights by contributing here.
On May 3, 2018, GOA filed the only amicus brief supporting a 20-state challenge to Obamacare being led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
On August 25, Gun Owners of America and its foundation, Gun Owners Foundation filed an amicus brief in support of a petition to the Supreme Court, challenging Maryland’s 2013 ban on so-called “assault weapons” and “large capacity magazines.”

On July 24, Gun Owners and Gun Owners Foundation filed a brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in the case Robinson v. United States.

We had gone back and forth about whether we should even file a brief and, if we did, whether it in fact should oppose the granting of the petition.
