U.S.A.-( GOF is the foundation arm of Gun Owners of America — and it exists to provide expert legal support for law-abiding individuals involved in firearms-related cases.

The Foundation has assisted numerous individuals against federal firearms charges, as well as state and local prosecutions for the use of a firearm in self-defense.

For example, you probably remember Shaneen Allen, a concealed carrier from Philadelphia who was arrested for merely possessing her handgun in New Jersey.

Shaneen, who is a nurse and mother of two, spent 40 long days in jail.

So Gun Owners America went to bat for her, and we lobbied Governor Christie to issue Shaneen a full pardon, which he eventually did.

And then GOA’s foundation set up a contribution link where gun owners nationwide could donate to Shaneen and help her with her legal expenses.

This is what Gun Owners Foundation does. We are here to help the little guy — or the “little gal,” as the case may be.

Gun Owners Foundation remains in business because of the charitable contributions from those who love the Constitution.

And many gun owners do this by contributing to Gun Owners Foundation through the Combined Federal Campaign. The GOF number is 10042.

But there is also a really simple way to help GOF, especially around the holidays.

About Gun Owners of America (GOA):

Gun Owners of America (GOA) is a non-profit lobbying organization formed in 1975 to preserve and defend the Second Amendment rights of gun owners. GOA sees firearms ownership as a freedom issue. `The only no comprise gun lobby in Washington’ – Ron Paul.
