VSSA Endores Lee for NRA

Hello Willes,
It is with great pleasure that I write to inform you that the Virginia Shooting Sports Association Board of Directors has voted on behalf of the thousands of VSSA members to endorse your re-election to the NRA Board.  We are proud to support a fellow VSSA member and strong advocate for the right to keep and bear arms for the NRA Board.  You do such a great job traveling around the country promoting our rights.  Feel free to promote this endorsement as you deem appropriate.  We will also promote the endorsement on our blog and social media as well as the eBullet member newsletter.  I have attached a copy of the VSSA logo that you can use to promote the endorsement on social media and other materials.
Good luck in your re-election bid.

NRA Voting Membership

Article III, Section 6 of the NRA bylaws states in part that: “Fully paid lifetime members and annual members with five or more consecutive years of membership, as shown in the Association’s membership records, who have obtained the age of 8 years on or before the fiftieth (50th) day prior to the date of the annual meeting of members and who are citizens of the United States of America shall be entitled to vote. Each such member shall be entitled to cast a vote for not more than one person for each vacancy on the Board of Directors to be filled by the membership at any election of Directors ….”

This means ….. if you are a lifetime or 5-year member, you receive a ballot in your NRA magazine the third week of January (February issue). If not, or if you’re not certain of your membership status, or if you’ve lost/misplaced your ballot then please contact NRA Membership.

As in any election with multiple candidates for multiple vacancies, “bullet” voting is most effective. For example,  in a small election if you vote for five candidates to fill five positions, each candidate is tied.  For the NRA election, best is to do your research and vote for one (I hope to have your support and to earn your vote), perhaps three, and absolutely no more than five. Voting for 25 to fill the 25 seats effectively nullifies your votes and does not help to elect candidates you desire on the Board of Directors.


It’s not only my history with the Army-Navy game, it is also my NRA work that makes this visit so comfortable.

CNP, Council for National Policy, Charlotte NC

First to know about CNP, is sorta, not exactly, like a Fight Club thing. I can tell that I am a member but cannot divulge who are any other members. There are many guest and visitors so the photos and names are not an indication of membership, though they may be, though maybe not. Get it?

Who’s done NASCAR Hall of Fame? Totally fun evening. Not that I’m competitive or anything, but the stopped *ss who I t-boned on the backstretch dropped me to 6 of 50, but it was all fun, all friends, & no animals were hurt using the simulators. 148 mph isn’t so fast w people doing 160. CNP (more about this group later) dinner included keynote by BFF Hall of Famer Richard Childress Richard Childress Racing & NRA – National Rifle Association of America 1VP, who was introduced by BFF fav NRA 2VP Carolyn Meadows. This history (& stories) in this place!!  #NASCAR NASCAR CNP #Charlotte #fast #feeltheneed


Yeah, you know, if you hang out long enuf, NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Childress of Richard Childress Racing (50th 

anniversary next year!) & NRA – National Rifle Association of America 1st VP will give a couple 

hints before you strap in the simulator. His leadership w NRA hunter mentorship program helping to rejuvenate America’s love for the outdoors… & he is a plain ole good (& friggin highly successful) southern boy determined to #MAGA. Theme for his keynote at NASCAR Hall of Fame “only in America”. #holdmybeer #NRA #NRABoard @WillesLee NRA’s American Hunter (Official) #M2AGA #2A

Had one (or two) of these? Hit this lobby for a weekend conference. Knew immediately that I’d been here. I call ‘em PTSD moments, not like actual PTSD, just like a not-so-good experience seared into my little brain (before haters go off, please check the bio). About 4-5 years ago, we did RNC meeting same place. About 2AM, computer dies. Down to the lobby for a geek or some help. On the phone, computer whiz asks what city I’m in and …. nothing, at all. That year, too many cities, stops, travel. Had to ask the clerk what city. Had a ‘can’t recall the city’ moment? or state? BFF Chad M Barth loaned me his “spare” computer (who travels w a spare ‘cept really savvy travelers?) Turns out city is Charlotte, site of 2020 Republican National Convention, & I’m back for another conference. #goodfriends #perspective #transparency #neverends #ontheroadagain 

Banquet keynote Jim Jordan got off elevator unescorted looking for the Green Room, me: “this is why you need a green room so people aren’t stopping you for pics”. As Pres National Federation of Republican Assemblies (NFRA), supporting the national effort to make him US House Speaker.

BFF Catherine Glenn Foster Pres/CEO Americans United for Life, catching her breath as she came off the big stage. Scored a 24th floor view. Sat next to BFF fav Cleta Mitchell is always, always, working. #conservative #winning #America

So, another CNP evening, our great #MAGA #conservative Mick Mulvaney (also see House Freedom Caucus) is casually cruising thru reception. Went for scotch when the conversation got like 3 levels above my little brain. No decorum. BFF Marjorie Dannenfelser Susan B. Anthony List Boss, spoke & was departing in her ride, yeah, door closed, when I popped in to ask for a pic. Marjorie a great sport. Greeted dynamo Carol M Swain for Nashville looking for next after her shot in Mayor’s race.  #NARCAR great Jeff Hammond is on our NRA – National Rifle Association of America Hunters Cmte, me “like meeting a celebrity in a room full of celebrities”. #conservativesolutions #CNP #WillesLee #Charlotte #politics #myflag #winning #freedom #grassroots #merica #VOTE We have formal pics but these are more funner.  Disclaimer: I can tell that I am CNP member, but can’t finger others. So some may be, some are visitors. Important that #NFRA (& #NRA) participate.
