Thank you for visiting our website. This site isn’t JUST about firearms and the National Rifle Association of America (NRA). It is about firearms, the NRA, and our Second Amendment movement. It contains the information you need to know for the National Rifle Association of America (NRA) elections.
While the programs in General Operation is the primary purpose of NRA, the NRA is the biggest, strongest, defender of our Second Amendment civil rights. NRA members’ most important election is for the NRA Board of Directors. The Directors determine the NRA programs and direction. There is no more critical period for gun civil rights than a President’s first term with multiple selections to the Supreme Court.
Vote for only candidates you know and trust. To ensure you get the Board you want, use should “bullet vote”. Vote for one (I hope to have your support and to earn your vote.), perhaps three, and absolutely not more than five. That is to say, if you vote for 25 candidates to fill the 25 seats, none of your selections hold weight over the others.
Moving onto the Board in January 2017 due to a Board vacancy, you helped get me elected in April 2017 as the only non-nominated Board member. I am appointed to six NRA Committees, Chairman of Outreach, Co-Chairman of Collegiate Programs. I serve also on the NRA Military and Veterans Affairs Committee led by Ollie North, the Grassroots Development Committee, Legislative Affairs Committee, and the Federal Affairs sub-committee. Re-elected to the NRA Board in the 2019 cycle, we have a lot of NRA work to accomplish.
When asked “occupation” during my military career, I proudly provided “Defender of Freedom” (please see my biography here). I am privileged to continue to defend freedom with the NRA, Freedom’s Safest Place. My goal is to elect pro-Second Amendment officials and legislators at every level of government, aggressively secure our Second Amendment civil rights, and continue the valuable tradition of the NRA. Achieving this goal ensures our many other NRA programs can continue. 2A supporters spend too much time on the defensive. Political action and NRA-ILA stands between the gun haters and your self-defense, love of hunting and shooting sports, firearms collecting and gun ownership. Each Board member also assists the NRA Foundation, NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund, and the Special Contribution Fund.
An NRA Benefactor and Ring of Freedom Member, I am the first person from Hawaii appointed to an NRA committee, the first to receive the NRA Nominating Committee’s nomination, and the first to successfully gain ballot access through petition, and the first to be elected to the NRA Board of Directors.
Our Board is strong. We are thankfully well-represented by hunters, sports and competitive shooters, celebrities, manufacturers, collectors, lawyers, and politicians. The need to secure our rights is political. We do this along with our grassroots members and supporters. This is my focus, having led or been a member of campaigns in several states, at all levels of government.
