Springfield, VA – Gun Owners of America (GOA) Director of Federal Affairs Aidan Johnston released the following statement:
“Yesterday, 21 Members of Congress led by Representative Andy Biggs wrote a letter to the President urging him to take action to eliminate the VA Fiduciary Rule, which has arbitrarily disarmed over 250,000 of our nation’s veterans.
“After Gun Owners of America, Gun Owners Foundation, and the Independence Fund submitted our petition for rulemaking to the Department of Veterans Affairs, we received overwhelming support from public officials.
“We were grateful to see leaders like Representative Chip Roy and Dr. Phil Roe write their letter to POTUS last week in defense of veterans’ rights.
“GOA is equally thankful for the support expressed by Representative Biggs and his 20 Republican colleagues who urged President Trump to take up our petition for rulemaking.
“We hope to see the Trump Administration take this first step towards eliminating the VA fiduciary rule, restoring the rights of these veterans post haste, and ending this dark chapter of Second Amendment history.”
