Skip to comments.Gun Owners of America (GOA) is described as "extremely radical" in Department of Justice document

This Bureau of Justice Assistance (U.S. Department of Justice) document is entitled "Investigating Terrorism and Criminal Extremism - Terms and Concepts and includes a reference to GOA, a gun rights lobbying organization. I have seen GOA mentioned on threads here, but I am not personally familiar with GOA. I believe that the right to self defense is a God given right. The Constitution should protect "the right to keep and bear arms" (firearms and other weapons usable for self defense), but that right is currently being "infringed" at all levels of government.

Gun Owners of America (GOA): An extremely radical gun-owning group with close ties to the militia movement. It reputedly has about 100,000 members (as opposed to the millions of NRA members). GOA is headed by Larry Pratt, a strong militia supporter who also has close ties to the white-supremacist movement.
Hmmm... Likely a questionable and biased description of the group (as I said, I'm not familiar with GOA, although I have contributed to Virginia Citizens Defense League, Second Amendment Foundation, and National Rifle Association). I am a gun rights and knife rights advocate...and I do not intend to ignite a flame war on this thread.
From the introduction to the DOJ document, a description of its purpose...
"Investigating Terrorism and Criminal ExtremismTerms and Concepts is a glossary designed primarily as a tool for criminal justice professionals to enhance their understanding of words relating to extremist terminology, phrases, activities, symbols, organizations, and selected names that they may encounter while conducting criminal investigations or prosecutions of members of extremist organizations."
I consider Holder’s DOJ as being “extremely radical” so I guess we’re even.
AiT, I think they are buying a couple of different vowels for what they see coming...I mean the current regime, that is.
This looks like a good place for a job for Larry Pratt after 2012.
Here’s the thread where I heard about this...

If only they would do an analysis of real terrorists!
Extremely ineffective, perhaps.
Islam—religion of peace subject to constant hate crimes
Constitutionalist—scary believers in constitutional rights
Southern Poverty Law Center—fearless defenders of the oppressed.
New Black Panther Party—fearless defenders of American’s right to vote.
Tea Partier—scary believer in smaller government. Likely to not accept Republican candidates that we have selected for them to vote for.
Pitcavage is a very far left critter, almost as bad as that other Mark in SPLC, Potok. His academic credentials have been smacked rather ragged, and far as I know he deserves it.
His closest ideological friends, I think, would be Devin Burghart and Leonard Zeskind. You can find them here:
No Mulsim Brotherhood.
Pretty stupid list for a country headed by Bill Ayers pal, with an AG who likes FALN.
Well, I just joined GOA to help defend our Constitutional rights. I see them as a no-compromise version of the NRA.
I guess I’m now a radical. Whatever.
Don’t even think of declairing martial law either this November, or the time preceeding the presidential election in 2012. You know that at least 70% of this country (growing daily!) thinks you’re a lying sack of SH*T!
Any form of martial law (shutting down the internet & talk radio, declairing a police state etc.) against the people will be seen as an act of treason! You said you ignored the 9/12 Tea Party Rally last year, and you said you ignored the 8/28 Rally a few days ago! These crowd numbers had to be a sober reminder...even for a dumba$$ like yourself, that you and the ruling class are sorely outnumbered!
We know that as a Marxist, you love chaos. But remember this dumba$$, YOU HAD BETTER BE ABLE TO CONTROL THIS CHAOS!
Trust us, you cannot lock up 200+ million citizens!
His meme has made the big time.
BTW, it was interesting to note the "Black Panthers" were NOT listed in their little lexicon.
Well put. Just thought it needed repeating.
Everyone at the DoJ needs to be drug tested. Psyche evals concentrating on borderline personality disorders would be good too.
Thanks to all for the insightful replies. I always do read a lot more than I post here...in fact I had to fire up the old dial-up service that I kept for emergencies for this reply.
Cable internet says they’re doing ‘planned maintenance’ in my area tonight...although I talked to one of their repairmen a couple weeks ago—he said there was a bad wire somewhere...like looking for a needle in a haystack. Will check back later today.
What next? Rubber bullets for the active military? Squirt guns perhaps? Seriously, if Holder had brains, he should be worrying about a military coup at the rate this administration is going. Oh, never mind, perhaps he is.
I will check them out. For those who have not yet seen their website, it’s here...
A gun behind every blade of grass.
