Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance (GOCRA) is a 501(c)(4) advocacy organization focused on supporting and defending the civil rights of Minnesota’s more than two million law-abiding gun owners. GOCRA lobbied successfully for the passage of the Minnesota Citizen’s Personal Protection Act, one of the most effective carry laws in the country. GOCRA was also instrumental in passing the Minnesota Range Protection Act, ensuring that current and future generations will be able to enjoy the shooting sports. In 2013 and 2014, GOCRA and its allies successfully defeated every attempt to enact gun rights infringements in the Minnesota Legislature. GOCRA continues to monitor the Minnesota legislature and educate legislators and citizens on issues important to voting gun owners.
