Todd J. Rathner
Todd J. Rathner is a no-compromise Second Amendment Lobbyist and has been fighting for our God given right to bear arms for over 20 years. Todd is running for reelection to the NRA Board of Directors where he has served for 14 years.
Todd played a crucial role in enacting Arizona’s Constitutional Carry law eliminating the need for government permission to carry a concealed weapon in Arizona. He has also played a critical role in enacting every major pro-gun reform in Arizona in the past 15 years helping to make Arizona the most gun friendly state in the US according to Guns and Ammo Magazine. http://tiny.cc/mzr39w
Todd has advocated for and passed pro-knife owner bills in over a dozen states and continues to do so today as the Director of Legislative Affairs for KnifeRights.org (the NRA for knife owners). Todd is the chief lobbyist for the American Silencer Association (ASA) and has worked in numerous states to make ownership of suppressors easier, and to allow hunting with suppressors. He is currently working in numerous states on behalf of the ASA to enable hunting with suppressors as well as working to enact “Shall Sign” legislation which would compel CLEO’s to sign Form 4’s unless they can prove that the person applying is a prohibited possessor.
This important legislation could revolutionize the way we transfer suppressors and other NFA items in the future. It is his goal to make sure this legislation is passed in all 50 states.
