Over the weekend, Breitbart News sat down with Gun Owners of America’s (GOA’s) Larry Pratt to ask his opinion on House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)35%
’s (R-OH-8th) plans to resign, and Pratt said he was thrilled with the news. He said he also hopes Boehner is not alone among Republicans when he packs his bags to leave the Capitol for good.
On September 15, Breitbart News reported that Gun Owners of America was supporting Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)96%
’s efforts to oust Boehner.
At that time, the GOA said:
As long as John Boehner is Speaker, your gun rights are in danger. After all, remember in spring of 2013, when the pro-gun community was engulfed in the “battle of the century” over the Bloomberg/Obama gun control agenda? John Boehner could have nipped gun control in the bud by pronouncing that gun control would be “dead on arrival” in the House. Instead, he said that the “House will consider” any gun control proposals sent over by the Senate.
