To My Fellow Patriots and 2nd Amendment Advocates:
My name is Sean Maloney; I am seeking election to the NRA Board of Directors, and ask for your help to win.
I was born and raised in Corry PA, a small town in Northwestern Pennsylvania, at the base of the Allegheny Mountains. I moved to Ohio in 1987, to attend law school at Ohio Northern University. While living in Ohio, my wife Debbie and I developed such good friendships, along with such a deep sense of community, that we never returned home to Corry. We eventually settled in Liberty Township, a rural farm community at the time, much like Corry, to raise our family.
I have been involved with guns and gun rights for some 40 years. First as a plinker, with Dads 22; then a hunter with my Remington 870; a confused college student, when some co-ed informed me, for the first time, that I didn't have a right to own a firearm; as an Attorney representing clients' gun rights; a lone 2nd Amendment advocate writing countless letters to the editor; a NRA Life Member spreading my 2nd Amendment beliefs to anyone who would listen; as a NRA Election Volunteer Coordinator organizing and working for any NRA Endorsed Candidate; and my greatest achievement as a Father, raising the next generation of pro 2nd Amendment advocates.
Now, it's time to further dedicate myself, to my fellow NRA Members, by serving on the Board of Directors. It is my desire to share my experiences, and lessons learned from my years of 2nd Amendment advocacy. I want to advance the successes I have been a part of in Ohio to other States, so that each American benefits and shares equally in the protections secured by the 2nd Amendment.
For many years I had been involved in partisan politics, fighting for good government. Then as my dedication to the NRA intensified, I came to the understanding that our 2nd Amendment rights cannot be fought and protected along party lines. Accordingly, I left partisan politics and dedicated myself to the NRA.
I am a Benefactor Life Member of the NRA; in 2010, I was humbled when the NRA-ILA presented me with the “Jay M. Littlefield Memorial Volunteer of the Year Award” an annual honor that recognizes an NRA member who demonstrates exceptionally meritorious activism in defense of our Second Amendment rights. Then in 2011, I was inducted into the NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinators Hall of Fame, resulting from my continued work on behalf of the NRA-ILA.
As a NRA Certified Instructor, along with teaching safe responsible gun handling, as a requirement for obtaining their Concealed Carry Permit, I use my instruction as a recruiting tool to increase NRA Membership, and increase the number of NRA Frontlines Volunteers. I volunteer my time to youth firearms training, and volunteer personal instruction time by teaching defensive handgun skills to women. I also serve on my local Friends of NRA Committee
I serve as a Buckeye Firearms Association Minuteman and a member of the Buckeye Firearms Legislative Team. I have directly assisted in the addition, modification and reformation of Ohio's Gun Laws. As a Defense Attorney, I regularly represent and defend clients in cases related to 2nd Amendment rights, general gun rights, concealed carry, open carry, and restoration of gun rights. I also handle cases related to FBI NICS appeals and challenges.
I have dedicated myself to the NRA, as well as the issues surrounding our rights to keep and bear arms, because I care about the preservation of our American heritage. My motivation comes from caring more still about the America I leave behind.
If you place your confidence in me by signing my petition, and voting for me in February or early March 2013, I promise hard work and continued dedication to the NRA and its over 4 million members.
Please email me directly at [email protected] with your name and mailing address if you would be willing to sign/circulate a petition for my name to be added to the ballot for the NRA Board of Directors, and I will mail one immediately to you. Remember, only NRA voting members, which are fully paid Life members or higher or 5+ year consecutive, annual members (without interruption) are eligible to sign my petition.
Yours in freedom,
