When I Get To Shoot

Don’t get to shoot often when you ‘re a #DefenderofFreedom busy trying to save Merica. When I do, it is peaceful.  Mostly at the NRA Headquarters Range, alos Hawaii throwing knives and spears. Big guns, little, rifles, handguns, even a little Carry Guard virtual reality. “They” said shooting black on white is racist. Then, white on black was racist. Now shooting smurfs, which is just plain mean.

Judge Jeanine Book Signing

Back in July, ACU hosted a book signing for Judge Jeanine Pirro at Trump Hotel DC. Lotta crashers, and all the DC “elite” stopped in. (Disclaimer, I am on the ACU Foundation Board of Directors.)

Yes, I have the pro-photog cheesecake photo w fav Judge Jeanine Pirro. This cuter pic, however, is shot by Matt & Mercedes Schlapp‘s eldest as our little bundle of energy tells me she is the biggest, baddest #2A supporter in America. I believe her.

At the end on June, National Federation of Republican Assemblies (NFRA)endorsed House Freedom Caucus Ohio Jim Jordan for Speaker. Tuesday evening at a great American Conservative Union, I told him so. Wednesday morning he announced that he’s running. Not saying, but just sayin.

How you help? Call/write your congress-bubba & tell em to support Jordan or we’re not turning out in November.

Yeah, so, the American Conservative Union Judge Jeanine Pirro (she’s great) book event at Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. was a huge Matt Schlapp success w all sorts of local political “celebs” & my highlight (demonstrating one can take “politics” only so seriously) ….. Clothesline bacon w fat dripping to the pickle at BLT Prime. Lotta friends, lotta crashers, some photos later. Not much swamp at this shindig. Disclaimer: ACU Foundation does #CPAC, I’m on the Board. (reminder- time to reserve your room for CPAC 2019) Did I mention the bacon?

Normandy Battlefield Cruise

Told you I’d be doing something different. No local gun store in this city. So, flying all night to get here, I visited the Museum of the Army in Paris. Firearms, sabers, pikes, artillery. If you’re a student of war & combat, it’s a Napoleon sorta afternoon. Then, stopped by the French version of West Point.

Who is your favorite general, and why?

 

More Paris photos at my personal page & Instagram @WillesLeeNRA.

We’re in France w 150 of our closest friends on the Freedom Alliance/ NRA – National Rifle Association of America Normandy riverboat cruise. Bucket List. Video explains tour, & my outfit. When you get the opportunity to cruise military history w Oliver North, it is a good thing. Honored & humbled (I’ll post the vignette) to present an aspect of US military history in Ste Mere Eglise, & photos from my presentation on the ship.
Anyone else been here and have a favorite photo??

What do you say when you’re tasked to give a 5 min vignette about the Battle for St Mere Eglise, with the preeminent military historian of our generation (Oliver North) standing to your left?? Well, not the battle, but something snazzy. Freedom Alliance & NRA – National Rifle Association of America Normandy Cruise. We’d shown our group two videos, they’re headed for a couple hours in The Airborne Museum. I give 5 points of emphasis which folks not familiar w (or having forgot) what we do. The sorta period dress was for fun. Watch til the end as BFF @garysupernaugh does a cool pan skyward to get the memorial of PVT Steele forever hanging by his parachute from the church steeple.

RNC Summer meeting, Austin July

Posting on this at the end of August, 1. seems long ago, 2 been a lot going on to take time from posting what is happening.  First, though, to post about our trip to France w Freedom Alliance/NRA Normandy battlefield river boat cruise.

Hit Austin in the great-American state of Texas for the RNC GOP meeting. Gotta begin w most fun dinner w longtime BFFs (including several FB friends) at historic The Austin Club. Can’t beat the food, but it is the company that makes it special. Now, couple days of politics. Not all Republicans are strong on #2A#politics #friends Ourania Yue Bruce Ash Donna Crocker #Texas #merica

He greeted me at the hotel, armed w badge. Hit Austin in the great American state of Texas for the RNC GOP meeting. Couple days of politics. Not all Republicans are strong on #2A.

What do you think about the RNC, or your state GOP? NRA stays in touch w #2A supporters, makes new friends, and holds the weak ones accountable. Always a homecoming for me, was state Chairman on the Republican National Committee GOP couple elections cycles back, did past 4 national conventions, many many good friends still fighting the good fight against the swamp to get conservatives elected. (The days are long, the nights are longer.) Yup, some of these folks aren’t ready for prime time or to support Donald J. Trump, but some of them are the best political operative/leaders in the business.

When Republicans GOP give a shout out to Minnesota Gun Owners Caucusfor their great 3,000+ #2A rally, makes me happy to be at an RNC meeting. Waiting (not holding my breath) for Dems to do the same. #keepshooting

Political Update at RNC GOP Summer Meeting, Austin, w Donald J. Trumpcampaign great Christopher Carr & RNC political staff. Can’t show data for specific races (“secret”, of course) but one slide in particular is good & appreciated.
Staff noted great Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus-RepublicanpartyofMinnesota #SecondAmendment Rally w 3,000 supporters & 16 state legislators/candidates which I was pleased (& honored) to give NRA Institute for Legislative Action remarks. Many #2Afolks who aren’t GOP will vote for pro-rights candidates, & many GOPers know more about #gunrights. Hope for more of these. (always fun to be w firearms supporters, especially outside the Beltway.) NRA & firearms folks got DonaldTrump over the top in key states, we’ll make the difference against Bloomberg/Soros $$ also this year.
Thank you. Appreciate the shout out & always glad to work to elect more pro-civil (gun) rights to office. #MAGA #ShallNotBeInfringed #DefenderofFreedom #woke #StandandFight #commonsense Rob Doar Juan O’Leary

McBride’s Guns and Sporting Goods was hopping w customers in the middle of a weekday. BFF Bill Crocker knows that I always TRY during travels to visit at least one highly-rated local gun store, thank ‘em for doing our business, & share their name (some shopping, too). Exciting to meet Austin’s ‘living legend’, Joe McBride. Store is way more huge than it looked. Note photobomb rack in photo w Bill (former longtime Republican Party of Texas NCM “Yoda of Texas politics”, also knew I could skip part of the RNC GOP Summer meeting for some gun fun. He allowed me to serve as his Assistant General Council for the 2012 Republican National Convention).

Superstar BFF Rachel Malone doing #2A work in Austin for Texas. Congratulations, Gun Owners of America fortunate & good move to bring her in. Happy for her, happy for all us. In town for RNC GOP meeting, we’ll do our “gun stuff” where & whenever —Pleased she could eke some mins to meet (she left meeting w Gov’s team, & headed to prep for state senate testimony). Well, yeah, we’re in a bar, but it’s noon. You know Rachel, 100 mph is like half-speed. You too can speak w her if you join us at Second Amendment Foundation#GRPC Chicago in September.  #alwayscarrying #campuscarry www.WillesLee.com #SecondAmendment #legislation #2A #M2AGA #politics Polite Society Podcast
