Attention NRA Voting Members:
Sacramento, CA –-(Ammoland.com)-We at the California Rifle and Pistol Association are honored to send this letter (below) to you in support of Joel Friedman.
Joel is running for re-election to the NRA Board of Directors and we would like you to consider voting for him if you are a NRA voting member.
If you received a ballot in this the March 2013 issue of your NRA magazine, then you are a “voting member.”
Our rights to lawfully own and use firearms are under constant attack here in California as well as from Washington, D.C. We need a strong voice, from our home state of California, making policies at the NRA that will help protect those rights. Joel Friedman is that voice!
When you vote for the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association, please consider voting for Joel Friedman from Pasadena, California. The future of our firearms rights are at stake.
My Fellow NRA Voting Members:
I am running for re-election to the NRA Board of Directors and am currently on the ballot that is included in your March 2013 NRA magazine if you are a voting member.
Although I have been endorsed by the NRA Nominating Committee and many other groups, individuals, and associations, I need your help if I'm to get elected. As you know, I'm not a celebrity or a sports star. I'm simply a businessman who has been a grassroots-level Second Amendment activist for more than two dozen years – right here in California. Only the candidates who finish in the top twenty five positions will become elected to the NRA Board.
During my many years as a Members' Council President and NRA Board Member and Committee Member, I've been a consistent voice of support for NRA's efforts in California. My no-compromise philosophy is well known throughout the NRA.
I will need you to do two things if I'm to be re-elected:
Vote for me
Send this email message to every firearms owner and Second Amendment supporter that you know
During the next few years, we will see unprecedented challenges and attacks to the Second Amendment on the state, local, and national levels. If you allow me to represent you on the NRA Board of Directors, I promise that I will try my best to never let you down.
Below is the short biography that is printed in the NRA magazine this month. If you have any further questions about my qualifications or positions on issues, please do not hesitate to contact me personally.
Thank you, in advance, for your support. I'm honored that you might consider me to represent you.
