We have yet to see an intelligent, logical plan for reducing violent crime in our nation, that will not disarm good people, making them soft targets for criminals.
Prince William, VA (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
In light of statements made by members of Congress concerning new gun control legislation, the Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners(CRGO) has been formed by a group of firearms and hunting enthusiasts with the goal of promoting responsible gun ownership, generating public awareness, and educating lawmakers on the benefits of firearms in the hands of private citizens.
The coalition released the following mission statement this week:
We serve to educate elected officials and the public on matters related to the responsible ownership of firearms in the United States of America. We believe that the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights are the foundation for all our past, present, and future successes as a nation. We will work to preserve every citizen’s right to defend themselves from violent criminals and tyranny.
The organization has created a Facebook page to distribute news articles and foster discussion of issues related to gun control, crime, and firearms ownership. A new website is under development and will include tools for more effective communication with members of Congress and other elected officials.
A spokesperson for the group said “We believe people have the right to defend themselves from violent criminals and tyrannical forms of government. We have yet to see an intelligent, logical plan for reducing violent crime in our nation, that will not disarm good people, making them soft targets for criminals. We will work tirelessly in the coming months to ensure that Americans continue to retain their right to self defense.”
