Do you know someone who is pro-gun, who likes working with college age kids, and who is in need of a full-time job in the fall?
Well if so, former Rep. Steve Stockman (R) has a deal for him.
Stockman is the Director of the Campus Leadership Program (CLP) in northern Virginia. The CLP is a project of the Leadership Institute, which trains conservative activists and places them in key level positions around the country -- both in government and the media.
The CLP project focuses specifically on college campuses, helping conservative students start independent groups that are fighting to reclaim the campus from decades of leftist abuses. The CLP has started 722 conservative clubs in schools in all 50 states.
But they have very few gun clubs, which is something they would like to change.
That's why this is a unique opportunity for someone who likes working with college-aged kids. They can help the pro-gun cause in the fall by starting a GOA gun club on campus or by working as a field representative. Every field rep who starts a gun group will be paid between $400-500. Kids can make as much as $1,000 a week.
But realize, it's not just about the money. It's about preserving our Second Amendment rights.
It doesn't matter how many battles we win today. If we lose the hearts and minds of the next generation, we will never win the ultimate battle to regain our lost rights.
ACTION & CONTACT INFORMATION: If you know someone who is interested in helping start a GOA gun club on campus, please send his contact information to Steve Stockman at the Campus Leadership Program. You can reach Steve Stockman at the Campus Leadership Program by using one of the following methods:

Need to set up the program in high school. It's for the children and all that.
I think that Larry Pratt and the Gun Owners of America do a great job defending us from the leftist, RAT, gun-grabbers.
Wow... sounds neat. I wonder if we could get something like that going at UT... Blue Heart of a Big Red State.
I really wish that Steve had stayed in politics. I think a lot of his congressional troubles came from the fact that he had bad advisors. The Texas Monthly debacle is proof of that.
He never went proactive with the press and faced his accusers.
Stockman was a good guy and a strong defender of the 2nd Amendment. He just needed better staff.
What Texas Monthly debacle?
Thanks for the pic! It's for the children!
He was target numero uno of the democrat party in 1996. They pumped millions of dollars into that race to beat him. They even filed a suit against an independent candidate in that race who had the audacity to have the same name as the long-time democRAT representative that Steve had defeated in 94. The rats were afraid that the independent candidate's name recognition would split the anti-Stockman vote and allow Stockman to retain the seat. The RNC did nothing to support Stockman in 96 as they basically wrote the seat off as a lost cause when they saw how much the democrats, the unions, and the national fraud apparatus of the democrat party was pouring into the race.
self ping for a good idea.
You are very welcome. We regularly host Boy and Girl Scouts, 4-H and (my favorite) our collegiate group to the range for rifle, pistol and shotgun familiarization and competition. The Office of Civilian Marksmanship (ODCMP) gives us a great price on ammo, and an NRA grant offsets range fees and has allowed us to buy several guns. It's a great time, and the best part (IMHO) is that we get to do something this subversive in the People's Republic of Kalifornia!
"Congressman Clueless" and the staff response to the hack of a reporter who wrote it.
What has the GOA actually accomplished on their own without the NRA's help?
Stockman's office had no press relations to speak of. Most local and state papers were openly hostile. The problem is that you need them to get your message out.
Steve never sought rapprochement with the press, and only sought to put out the little brush fires that erupted along the way. That allowed Slick Nick Lampson to frame his message and Steve as well.
Steve was targeted because he was vulnerable. He was elected in the 9th district after he beat long-time Congressman Brooks. They wanted it back.
I personally blame his Chief-of-Staff and certain hangers-on for his defeat.
Steve was a trusting, honest guy who just relied on the wrong people.
Why are you so damned hostile? No one even said anything about your precious NRA.
Do you believe that other pro gun groups even have a right to exist? Do you think our rights would be better protected if the NRA was the only advocate?
I'm not hostile. I'm also not the one who created a website about mistakes the NRA may or may not have done over THIRTY YEARS ago.
I just found a chance to ask an active member of the GOA if they had ever done anything without the NRA's help. If you have noticed, I have been asking the same question for about two years now. I still haven't received an answer.
You can't be a "No Compromise" gun group if you don't do anything.
Actions taken, by mistake or not, 30 years ago or not, have never been rectified.
The GOA is not as big as the NRA, they don't have the staff or the money to spend on fundraising like the NRA and no, they don't accomplish as much. But they do still serve a purpose and they do alert people to the treachery that goes on in congress and they do educate people.
Maybe you have a problem with that poster, but you blame the GOA the way others condemn the NRA. That doesn't make you any better than them.
