Alliance of No Compromise Organizations Sends a Letter to the United States Senate 

On July 29, 2022, several of Gun Owners of America (GOA) industry partners, the No Compromise Alliance, sent a letter to Congress voicing its opposition to the so-called “assault weapons” ban (H.R. 1808) and the repeal of Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (H.R. 2814).

According to AmmoLand, “The coalition consists of Fort Scott Munitions, Classic Firearms, Rifle Dynamics, Alpha Omega Kydex Holster, T.Rex Arms, Kahr Firearms Group, Wolfpack Armory, Freedom Ordnance MFG, and Foxtrot Mike Products. The letter was sent to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and Minority Whip John Thun (R-SD).”

HR 1808 was passed on July 29, while HR 2814 has yet to be voted on.

Nevertheless, the letter calls on the Senate to oppose these two bills. In sum, HR 1808 would ban commonly owned semi-automatic firearms simply for their cosmetic features. The prohibition singles out the AR-15 and AK-style firearms that Rifle Dynamics produces. 

In addition, this bill would impose limits on magazine size to 10 rounds. The bill targets any magazine that can hold over 10 rounds as “high capacity.” 

AmmoLand noted one of the most frightening sections of this bill: 
 

One of the most concerning parts of the anti-gun House bill would ban guns that have a fully automatic version. Since Glock makes the automatic Glock 18, the Glock 17, the most popular handgun in the world, could be banned by the new proposed “assault weapons” ban. 

The second legislation in question is the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act of 2022 (H.R. 2814). Under this bill, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) would be repealed. This legislative proposal law would give anyone the ability to sue firearms manufacturers for whatever reason they please.  Congress originally passed the PLCAA to shield the firearms industry from legal action from anti-Second Amendment groups attempting to bankrupt the firearms industry.

AmmoLand observed that the lawsuit strategy is already employed by anti-gun organizations and states to bleed companies financially dry:
 

Using lawsuits are already being used by anti-gun groups and anti-guns states to sue gun companies. Brady has launched several lawsuits against companies such as Polymer 80. States like New York and cities like Baltimore have also sued gun companies.

This pro-gun coaliton called attention to how this latest slew of gun control proposals would make people less safe:
 

The group highlights that these laws will cost lives by denying lifesaving tools to the public. It highlights that 14 million new gun owners sought firearms to protect themselves and their families during the unrest of last summer, where cities burned during the riots and lives were lost. These gun owners have used their firearms in self-defense a staggering 1.67 million times yearly.

Ultimately, the No Compromise Alliance wants Senators to follow the Constitution and Congress to focus on legislation that actually protects Amerians. This does not consist of gun control.

Good on Gun Owners of America for leading this drive. This is the first step. The next step should consist of putting pressure on elected officials and candidates to hold the line and not pass gun control. 

At the end of the day, politicians respond to pain and pleasure. When the forces of tyranny feel sufficient pain from the grassroots and the organizations that represent them, they will relent. That’s why constant pressure, not complacency, is the best way to keep the ruling class in check.
