This is the legislative component of GOC; our staff is in the legislative halls fighting full-time for gun owner rights, opposing bad bills, supporting good ones, influencing the legislature every day, day in and day out. The united voice of GOC members has successfully defeated attempts by anti-gun groups to impose handgun bans and other restrictive measures designed to disarm our population. It’s tough work in a hostile environment, but we are up for it.
