California – -(Ammoland.com)- Dear friends and fellow NRA members:
As a proud Life member of the National Rifle Association, I am deeply troubled by an active effort to recall Mr. Grover Norquist from our NRA board of directors.
If you’re a member of the NRA who is eligible to vote, please return a NO vote on the recall as soon as you receive your ballot.
But don’t just vote NO if you agree with Grover’s politics or support his other endeavors.
Vote NO on the recall of Grover Norquist because it’s up to you to protect our NRA — the most powerful grassroots lobbying organization in the United States — during some of the most important political and legal battles of our time.
Let me be very clear: This insidious recall effort is much, much bigger than being about just one member of our NRA’s board of directors.
And don’t just take it from me.
It’s up to us to make sure that our NRA isn’t fractured and taken over by people my friend Alan Gottlieb, founder of Second Amendment Foundation, called “[a] group of conspiracy nuts lead by a discredited Frank Gaffney.”
Todd Rather, a current member of our NRA’s board of directors and someone I trust, summarized the effort to recall Grover Norquist this way: “The…recall is designed to…DESTROY the integrity of the NRA, damage the NRA board, and cause irreparable harm to our cause.”
And from Sandy Froman, a former NRA president and current member of our NRA’s board of directors: “Never once has Grover said or done anything to suggest that he has anything but the best interests of gun owners, NRA members and the NRA at heart.”
I’m not asking you to vote NO on the recall of Grover Norquist because Todd, Alan, Sandy, and I all think you should.
I am asking you to vote NO because I believe that the recall presents a genuine threat to the future of our fundamental, individual rights.
For more about what Alan called “a grave injustice,” you can read Todd’s detailed commentary at this link.
Thank you, in advance, for voting NO on the effort to recall Grover Norquist.
Together, we will keep NRA strong.
