American gun rights activist, nicknamed 'Bill,' who founded Gun Owners of America (GOA) in 1975, and served as a California state senator from 1966–1989. He served as the state senate's Republican Caucus Chair for several of these years. He was the unsuccessful Republican candidate for the United States Senate in 1974, having been defeated by incumbent Alan Cranston. He ran for Congress in 1962, and again in 1992, having lost 40–51 percent to Democrat Vic Fazio, member of the United States House of Representatives from California's 3rd congressional district.

Richardson served in the United States Navy in World War II. He was the father of action-film screenwriter Doug Richardson. He died in California on 13 January 2020 at the age of 92.
