USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Marion Hammer is up for re-election to the Board of Directors of the NRA. It’s our turn to step up to the plate (as she has done for us consistently over the years) and support her. Marion has been unyielding in her support of the Second Amendment at both the state and national levels.
If you are a voting member (Life Member or have been an annual member for five consecutive years) your ballot to elect NRA Board Members will be in the February 2019 issue of your NRA magazine. Ballot issues are arriving NOW.
Check your February issue for your ballot and be sure to vote. Vote for Marion Hammer — it is not necessary for you to vote for anyone else — BUT — you need to Vote for Marion Hammer. We need her representation on the NRA Board.
If you have a concealed carry license, thank Marion. Her efforts led the way to “shall issue” licenses nationwide.
The right to protect yourself without fear of criminal prosecution for armed self-defense? Thank Marion.
The award-winning and nationally recognized Eddie Eagle gun safety program for children, again, thank Marion — she was the creator and driving force behind it.
You can shoot at an outdoor range without fear of a state or local government agency zoning the range out of existence because Marion was there to push through the Range Protection Act.
Your self-defense rights and the presumption of innocence have been restored because of the work done by Marion Hammer.
At the state and federal level, Marion has stood on the front line ensuring the Second Amendment of the US Constitution and our rights under the Second Amendment remain secure.
Marion has never viewed being on the NRA Board as something for a resume. She dedicates herself daily to unselfishly working to ensure that our rights as lawful gun owners remain inviolate.
I have known and worked with Marion Hammer for over 40 years. There is no one I know who has dedicated so much of her soul to protecting us from the gun-grabbers.
Perhaps today more than ever, we need to show our support for her hard work. I urge you to get out your issue of The American Rifleman, The American Hunter or America’s First Freedom, if you are a voting member, pull out the official ballot that is attached inside and vote for Marion Hammer.
As we have seen in recent political elections complacency can lead to harmful results. Please vote for Marion Hammer for the NRA Board of Directors.
