A collaborative effort of 27 pro-gun state and national organizations has formed to fight against any federal gun bans. The group is referring to themselves as the “National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban” and has announced the formation of the coalition January 3, 2013.

The Nebraska Firearms Owners Association website http://nebraskafirearms.org/ states:

The objective of the coalition is to kill the proposals. Period. It is not to “compromise” by saddling gun owners with restrictions and whining “It was the best we could get.”  Nothing less than the complete defeat of the Obama/Biden/Feinstein proposals will suffice;

All coalition members have agreed that “compromise” is not an option; AND

The member organizations launched the Coalition with a coordinated “Open Letter to Members of Congress” and with coordinated press releases and membership alerts.

Participating organizations are comprised of both national organization and state organizations.

National organizations: The Firearms Coalition, Gun Owners of America, Rights Watch International, Second Amendment Sisters, USRKBA.org

State organizations: Arizona Citizens Defense League, Arkansas Carry, Florida Carry, Inc., Grass Roots North Carolina, Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance, Gun Owners of California, Gun Owners of Maine, Gun Owners of Vermont, Michigan Gun Owners, The Minnesota Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance, Montana Shooting Sports Association, New Hampshire Firearms Coalition, New Jersey 2nd Amendment Society, Nebraska Firearms Owners Association, Oregon Firearms Federation, Peaceable Texans for Firearms Rights, Shooters Committee on Political Education N.Y., Utah Shooting Sports Council, Virginia Citizens Defense League, West Virginia Citizens Defense League, Western Missouri Shooters Alliance, and Wisconsin Carry, Inc.

The members of the coalition have drafted a letter to Members of Congress that includes sections addressing “The truth about modern rifles,” “Semi-auto ban: No impact on violence,” “’Gun Free School Zones Act’ increased killings,” and the position statement of the coalition with the signatories of the founding members.
