Washington, D.C. — Gun Owners of America (GOA) is excited to be sponsoring two major outreach events this coming weekend of July 28th-30th. GOA staff will be working in both the greater Detroit, Michigan metroplex and Atlanta, Georgia to help spread the message that the Second Amendment protections GOA fights hard for are there to protect all people, regardless of their God-given race, background, or gender.
For the 12th year in a row, GOA will be supporting the work of Michigan gun rights advocate and firearms instructor, Rick Ector, during his group’s annual women’s training event. Empowered 2A Michigan Coordinator, Katie Gardner, and Senior VP of GOA, Erich Pratt, will be in attendance.
Rick Ector, the founder of Legally Armed in Detroit, a gun safety advocacy group, will provide a free firearm shooting lesson at two southeast Michigan target ranges for 2000 women interested in learning more about firearms and personal protection. The total number of women trained over the 12-year program has exceeded 7,500. Check out our video highlighting our work at the event in 2022!
The ladies FREE shooting event will be held on Saturday, July 29, 2023 and Sunday, July 30th, at both Top Gun Shooting Sports
