Today, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14) delivered again for Americans and the Second Amendment by introducing the Gun Owner Privacy Act (GOPA). This pro-gun legislation ensures that gun ownership is not monitored and logged by the federal government, and provides legal recourse by allowing damages to be collected by citizens whose rights have been violated.

As Democrats in Congress push for registration and licensing of firearms with H.R. 127, GOPA will prohibit such a gun control scheme by providing legal protections for Americans. The Gun Owner Privacy Act (GOPA) prevents the government from unlawfully compiling and storing data from background checks on gun owners.

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene issued the following statement:

“The right to keep and bear arms is a God-given right protected by the Constitution. I’m proud to stand up and defend against threats to our Second Amendment rights in Congress. That’s what the people of Northwest Georgia sent me to do.

The Gun Owner Privacy Act protects the right to keep and bear arms by preventing the Feds from collecting data to monitor and log gun ownership in America. This legislation will give Americans legal recourse and the ability to sue the Feds and collect damages for records illegally stored.

Privacy is critical to every free nation, but currently Democrats in Congress with the backing of the White House have introduced legislation (H.R. 127) which would strip that right of privacy and make gun owners targets of a tyrannical government.”

Congressmen Scott Perry (PA-10) and Thomas Massie (KY-4) have joined Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14) as cosponsors of GOPA.
