AmmoLand Shooting Sports News has Endorsed Graham Hill for the 2017 NRA Board of Directors.
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Hello, my name is Graham Hill. I’m a life-long gun owner running for re-election to the NRA board of directors and I need your support.
I’ve served two terms on the NRA board and am the current Chairman of both the Legislative Policy and Federal Affairs Committees – which oversee all of NRA’s lobbying, political and legal activities at the federal, state and local levels.
I’ve work closely and directly with NRA’s chief lobbyist and government affairs leader Chris Cox for many years on protecting the Second Amendment at the federal and state level.
Our work in 2016 to elect Donald Trump ensures a pro-Second Amendment Supreme Court nominee will replace Justice Scalia – this is the most important issue for the future of our rights.
Much work remains, including passing a national concealed carry reciprocity bill, passing the hearing protection act to deregulate suppressors, and rolling back onerous rules and regulations imposed on us over past decades. And that’s just for starters.
I was born and raised in south Texas, on the border. My parents took me hunting when I was literally a baby, and taught me to shoot guns beginning when I was 5 years old, just as their parents taught them, and just as my wife and I are raising our three boys.
I’m blessed to be able to competitively shoot 3-gun matches – even from my wheelchair – and to get to enjoy hunting in Texas with my AR, to get to shoot ARs and pistols competitively, to take youngsters on their first hunts on our deer lease twice a year and consistently have them successfully take game with suppressed AR15s.
This is my DNA, it’s who I am. I devote my time and labor to the NRA because without the NRA many of these activities could become illegal one day and deny my children, and their children the rights that you and I work hard today to protect.
As an attorney, as a father of three boys, and as an outdoorsman, I take protecting these rights seriously. I am blessed to have the expertise of 25-plus years work experience with federal legislation and regulations, and I put that knowledge to work with other NRA leaders to protect our Second Amendment.
As an attorney, I also serve on the Legal Affairs committee at NRA, where the vital coordination of legal and legislative efforts takes place. I am honored to work with the chairman of the Legal Affairs committee and others to advance precedent setting legal cases to protect our Second Amendment rights.
I serve our cause also on the American Suppressor Association board of directors, and as President and CEO of the Fifty Caliber Institute. I am also a past president and current board member of Washington Safari Club.
I believe we each have two sacred things to give in our lifetimes – our labor and our love. I’ve devoted my love to my family and friends, and I’ve devoted my labor to protecting our way of life – our core family traditions which in my case are embodied in the second amendment.
As we turn the page of history to a new chapter of progress in protecting and advancing our rights, I’m asking you to vote for my re-election to the NRA board. My promise is that if elected, I will continue to serve you, the members of the NRA, and our nation, in protecting and advancing the Second Amendment.
Thank you for taking the time read my message. If you found it compelling, please like and share it with your family, friends and fellow gun owners right now!
