After months of terrible news from Washington, D.C. on gun rights, there is finally some good news in that we are finally starting to see some efforts from certain members of Congress to protect your Second and Fourth Amendment rights.

You likely already know about your Second Amendment rights (you’re reading this site, after all), but a surprising number of people have no clue about their Fourth Amendment rights which protect them from unreasonable searches. In other words, you have a right to privacy, to not be watched by the government, if you aren’t doing anything harmful to others.

Now, new Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene stepped to the plate for gun owners (hat tip to here for the lead). A press release from Greene’s office gives the details:

Washington, D.C. – 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.

Greene is absolutely right: the right to bear arms and the right to keep government out of your business are fundamental rights of a free people, and the Second and Fourth Amendments should be enough to protect those freedoms, but maybe it’s time that anti-gunners got a reminder of that.

  1. Gid Bless Mrs Green its about time those that claim to be God Trusting and Gid Fear stand with the courage to defend we the common people,that we elect to be our VOICE

  2. These POLITICAN are not IMMUNITY once they are voted out of office! Nowhere in the CONSTITUTION LAWS SAY THEY ARE! Once back as private CITIZEN we can charge them will a CRIME! Same as they try to do president Trump! There is NOT one DEMOCRAT or RINOREPUBLICAN who truly understand the constitution laws. Sure you when to law school so what! That doesn’t mean you are intelligent! It mean you were able to find your way into the CORRUPTION CONGRESS!

  3. While I applaud Congresswoman Green on her position and good intentions, like so many acts by politicians, it is nothing but show as it has as much chance of being enacted than a bill to completely disband all police.

  4. Our “God given rights” as described in the Bill of Rights must be protected and defended at all costs. We have seen that the deconstruction of our constitution is not just possible but likely if we do nothing. Individuals have little power to prevent this lest we stand behind strong leaders. United we stand, divided we fall. Rights have been systematically taken away from people of other countries and anyone who thinks it can’t happen here is mistaken. It’s time to stand behind people like congresswoman Greene and others who have the courage to defend freedom.

  5. I praise Ms. Green for her attempt, but as the republicans want to disown her, and the democrats hate her,
    the bill will probably go no place. Alas, we can always have hope.

  6. While I applaud the Congresswoman, I also know that the HITLERIAN regime promoted by biden/”bo the TRAITOR” requires that no weapons be raised to stop the government from destroying all the good the Founding Fathers and PRESIDENT TRUMP have done! Hence= gun control. Look to England where the only police officers bearing weapons are “special armed police”. France does not allow hand guns. ( only if you KNOW the important people). The socialist countries do not allow guns. Only hunting rifles. Australia: same.
    We are very lucky in the US.
    Until the time they come!

  7. I stand for the 2nd & 4th amendment
    The President, Congress & Senate swore an oath to stand & uphold the constitution
    Any democratic or republican who votes for any bill against the constitution is a traitor & should be removed from office and or charged with treason & sent to Gitmo

  8. Finally new Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is representing millions that see what the Biden commoner are trying to do to our American rights.
    Please get other Congress members to see the same light.
    Thank you

  9. We have laws against illegal immigration but yet whole cities ignore them and refuse to cooperate. So what should the Government expect from citizens if they do pass ridiculous Gun control laws? Not much I’m guessing….

  10. Call the bill “the Greene New Deal” . Democrats will be afraid to vote against it!
    Thank you Congresswoman Greene!
