GOA To Key Vote “NO” on Anti-Gun Research, Gun Control Filled Minibus
The Further Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2024, which was unveiled at 2:32 AM the day before a vote, is a dream come true for anti-gun politicians and the bill even subsidizes the gun control lobby. Further, its expedited timeline is an outrage, not giving gun owners enough time to analyze the full extent of the gun control funded by the legislation.
On behalf of more than two million law-abiding gun owners, GOA urges all members of Congress to vote against this anti-gun funding bill that seeks further restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of Americans and advocates for gun control measures.
Dickey Amendment Violations
The Dickey Amendment is supposed to prevent the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) from “advocating or promoting gun control.” However, Gun Owners of America has found that the bill appropriates a total of $25,000,000 for “Firearm Mortality and Injury Prevention Research.” The House of Representatives voted against this language on November 15th, 2023 in the Mariannette Miller-Meeks amendment, which passed 216-211.
