USA – -( Safari Club International President Paul Babaz is once again running for the NRA Board. He was appointed to the NRA Board last year and is running again this year. He needs your votes.

The need to align Safari Club International (SCI) with like-minded groups such as the NRA helps strengthen the fight against both the radical anti-hunting groups and those who would rob us of our Second Amendment rights. Hunting and firearms are tightly woven in the fabric of America and what affects one will surely affect the other. Babaz now has an additional year of experience in how desperate the antis are in depriving us of our rights. The assaults on hunting and gun ownership have intensified and continue unabated.

SCI President Babaz is the right person in the right place at the right time to help protect the freedoms all hunters and shooters cherish.  He is a lifelong hunter and shooter, understands the importance of linking all facets of the shooting sports to expand the overall base and to counter the efforts of those who would deny the right to keep and bear arms and the freedom to hunt.

“I believe in forming strong alliances with other like-minded organizations as there is strength in numbers,” SCI President Babaz said. “We have to stand together on the issues that are important to us in order to combat the anti-hunting movement as well as the anti-gun movement.

“Regardless what you hunt or what type of firearm you use, we must stand together to protect the freedom to hunt whatever game we choose to hunt as well as protect the right to own the firearms of our choice,” Babaz explained.

“We need to reach out to those who may not have heard the facts, using all of the resources available to us, including the mainstream media whether we get a fair shake or not,” President Babaz continued. “We have a responsibility that reaches beyond ourselves and our time to continue to provide factual information about responsible firearms ownership and shooting, hunting and sustainable use conservation.”

NRA members will receive a ballot in their NRA magazine. Please support Babaz’s bid for a spot on the NRA Board and make sure your voice is added to those who are fighting for our Second Amendment rights and to preserve our hunting heritage for future generations.

    1. NRA May have started out innocently enough, but now just another money grubbing club trying to hang onto their millions while supplying dipshits the promise of not losing their guns. Pathetic and a true embarrassment

    2. As a proud Australian living in a country that has repealed gun laws and tightened gun ownership laws, I am appalled at the attitude of Americans when it comes to gun ownership. Guns were invented to KILL. That fact is indisputable, yet there are those who maintain it is their inalienable right to defend themselves by the carrying of weapons. I am always horrified when I read of mass murders, shoot outs and general misuse of guns in the US yet it seems the wool has been pulled over the eyes of the populace. I would like to know who are you defending yourselves from? And as for trophy shooting…I cannot believe that this disgusting and abhorrent act is allowed. It is cowardice of the first order. I thought that Americans were more intelligent than to go raging around the wilderness, indiscriminately murdering animals, but maybe not. There are idiots in all walks of life. It is just a pity that the most stupid of these are the ones who obtain pleasure in killing beautiful animals. What a sad comment this is on your country.

      1. What a sad commentary it is on Australia that it’s abject morons go online to tell other people what they have a right to do or not do when it comes to protecting their lives. Yes, there are idiots in all walks of life. You have proven this by excreting your comment here.

        Stay in Australia. We here in the states are aware of how you persecuted your own fellow countrymen.

      2. You’re right the fact is indisputable, it is our inalienable right to defend ourselves by the carrying of weapons.

        Amendment II
        A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    3. He was appointed to the NRA BOD. I can only presume that he is a specially chosen rubber stamp. I am only voting for member petitioned nominees. Both of them. All donations going to GOA.

    4. Why do I need to support a rich Fudd to the board of directors of the national organization of rich Fudds?

    5. I don’ t know Babaz, but I’ve been a little skeptical of SCI’s overall “pro-gun” stance ever since they invited the late George H.W. Bush to be a speaker at their annual meeting even AFTER he very publicly quit his NRA membership. (Bush did so “officially” over NRA leadership’s disparaging reference to the BATF – they paraphrased a Democrat congressman who’d called BATF a “jackbooted group of fascists.” Despite the official reason, many believe GHW Bush actually did it because he blamed the NRA for his re-election loss – they had the temerity to withhold their endorsement due to Bush’s multiple broken promises.)

    6. NRA is a gun rights group, not an elephant hunting group. Stick with trying to get true gun support people in the position of governing the NRA. By doing that there may be a chance to save the organization.

      1. Sorry, tomcat, but the NRA is NOT a “gun rights group” — it never has supported the right to keep and bear arms and has actively supported every single anti-gun federal law starting the the National Firearms Act of 1934.

        It might be possible to turn the NRA into the organization that their advertising tries to pretend it is supposed to be, but doing that would require a massive change in the board of directors — a change that isn’t going to happen because the entrenched power structure sets the rules for who can be considered for the board.

    7. Same question I ask everyone running for an NRA Board or political office: Do you support the repeal of all firearms laws and will you actively work to achieve that?

      1. This man concerns me. The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with (it is certainly not restricted to) hunting, yet Babaz mentioned nothing else. I’m a bit leery about supporting him.

        1. @JoeUSooner

          Have a feeling he is a money cruncher. But then again, look who is supporting him.

          SCI worked quite hard out west getting lands listed as guided or seeking regulations calling for guides. This was great for guided services, but really screwed over the citizens in those states by taking away their hunting opportunities unless they wanted to shell out big bucks to some of SCI’s partners. The people who should have had priority were pushed into the back and told that they had no rights, that the animals were a state income resource.

          We already know Backcountry Hunters and Anglers is a left wing front group designed to appear reasonable. In my personal opinion SCI is just as bad, they are all about the bottom line with catch phrases like “Preservation” and “Tradition” as window dressing.
