Wisconsin Gun Owners, Inc. (WGO) Introduces Thomas Leager as New Executive Director
Madison, Wis. — Wisconsin’s only no-compromise gun rights organization announces its board of directors has named pro-gun activist Thomas Leager as its new executive director. Leager, who hails from Madison, will lead its pro-gun strategy and media operations as Wisconsin’s 2021–2022 legislative cycle begins.
Leager will liaison with state legislators and their staff and represent WGO’s position on gun rights issues in the media. Members can expect to begin hearing from Leager in official communications immediately.
Leager’s political agenda for Wisconsin’s new legislative session will include offensive fights for constitutional carry, campus carry, delisting suppressors and SBRs from the NFA, stand your ground self-defense laws, and tax relief for firearms and sporting businesses, among others. Under Leager’s leadership, the organization will continue to oppose red-flag gun confiscation, gun registration, mandatory buyback schemes, and mental health background checks.
“I look forward to helping grow WGO and taking the political fight for our right to bear arms to the gun grabbers in Madison,” said Leager. “I’ll stand strong against any legislation pushing harmful and unconstitutional ‘Red Flag’ gun confiscations and will oppose top-down federal registration or mandatory gun buyback programs under a Biden administration. WGO will continue to lead the fight for the Second Amendment and self-defense in Wisconsin.”

WGO works for grassroots gun owners, not politicians. While many gun lobbies fight for “reasonable gun control,” WGO sets a higher standard: We oppose all gun control — regardless of the political party — and work tirelessly to restore the Second Amendment. WGO has angered many politicians who would like people to believe that they support gun rights — even when they vote against them. Click here to join
