By Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown USAR (Ret.)
Boulder, CO – -(Ammoland.com)- We're just recovering from all the bombast and bullshit from the 2014 mid-term elections and already are looking ahead at much more of the same during the 2016 presidential election cycle.
We’re also putting up with seeing/hearing and puking regarding an OFU for two more years and possibly more. An OFU? No, not a mispelling of UFO. I mean OFU—old, fat and ugly. Hillary, of course.
But I digress. February 2015 will see the annual election of NRA Board of Directors (BOD). If you are a voting member, said election gives you the opportunity to weigh in on the direction of the NRA. Which, for whatever shortcomings it exhibits (as with any large organization), is the only protection of our 2nd Amendment rights.
SOF endorses the following current BOD members for reelection: Scott Bach, Ronnie Barrett, David Coy, Joseph De- Bergalis, Antonio Hernandez, David Keene, Wayne Anthony Ross, Don Saba, William Satterfield, Ronald Schmeits, Robert Unkovic and Robert Viden.
SOF is also endorsing Sean Mahoney and Timothy Knight, who are running by petition. Their bios follow:
