To all NRA members, collectors, shooting aficionados, hunters, Second Amendment activists and self-protection supporters:
Dear friends, my name is Antonio Hernandez-Almodovar and I am running for the NRA Board of Directors.
I have been nominated by NRA Nominating Committee and currently sit on the Legal Affairs and Urban Affairs Committees. I am a past member of the NRA Nominating Committee. I have been endorsed by Soldier of Fortune Magazine. I assisted in renewing Puerto Rico’s NRA State Association authorization and also sit on the host committee for the first ever Friends of the NRA Dinner on the island. Since I was a law school student I have assisted in drafting and passing pro-gun legislation as well as the current Puerto Rican firearms laws which require “shall issue” for new weapons and shooting permits.
I have given seminars to state district attorneys in assisting them with gun owner’s rights under existing law. I have also assisted in NRA outreach on Second Amendment by acting as a spokesperson on Spanish language media including numerous appearances on the national Spanish language station, Univision.
I am a Concealed and Carry Permit holder. I have attended NRA Regional
Police Firearms Instructor Development School in Allentown, Pennsylvania and have also been an instructor in various firearms’ shooting and safety courses. I also hold a Private Investigator License.
I am a passionate, unapologetic defender of the Second Amendment and self-protection advocate. I have been a lifelong rifle, pistol, shotgun shooter and collector. I am an NRA Endowment member, husband to Becky and father to Antonio (7), Adolfo (4) and toddler Ilana, all life members.
I humbly ask you to vote for me, Antonio Hernandez-Almodovar for member of the NRA board. I would be honored to have your vote and will continue to defend our Second Amendment rights as a member of the NRA Board of Directors.Sincerely
