Anthony Colandro for the 2019 NRA Board of Directors

New Jersey – -( Before I begin, please accept my sincere appreciation for your membership in the NRA. Without you, many Americans would be completely disarmed and politically subjugated by now. You and I are at the forefront of the 2A fight against tyranny, and we don’t take that responsibility for granted. My name is Anthony P. Colandro, and I’m hoping to appeal to your sense of duty, honor, and reverence, to the Second Amendment of the Constitution of The United States of America.

Vote for Anthony Colandro

The NRA members need me on the Board of Directors. You see, I’m running on petition [not with the blessing of the NRA nomination committee] for an NRA Board of Director's seat, on behalf of millions of law-abiding American gun owners. Both the New Jersey and New York State associations have endorsed me, and just last year I was presented with the “NRA Trainer of Distinction Award” as well as the “Second Amendment Activist of the Year Award.” I am a strong right to carry advocate, and I am also an avid shooter and firearms collector.

If you’ve ever come to the NRA meetings, I’m sure you’ll remember me. I currently sit on three NRA committees for Education & Training, Range Development, and Clubs & Associations. I’m the Executive Vice-President of the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs, which is the New Jersey State NRA affiliate, and I’ve hosted three consecutive, record-breaking Friends of the NRA dinners in New Jersey. I’m an NRA Certified Master Training Counselor, and I’m a Benefactor Life Member of the NRA. I am also a member of NRA Ring of Freedom, Heritage Society and a Whittington Center Trailblazer #353. I’m an NRA Election Volunteer coordinator, and I also support NRA competitions, Women on Target, and Eddie Eagle programs at my range. I am dedicated to the message of the NRA to all Americans.

My privately owned business is known as Gun For Hire at the Woodland Park Range. I provide a welcoming environment to teach safe and responsible gun ownership to my customers, and we train hundreds of students each and every year to be better at safety, and at shooting.

I teach people how to get involved and instill in them the necessity to participate in the process of policy making so that they can become their own Second Amendment advocates. My facility is safe-haven of diverse people, from all walks of life, and every day we forge the tip of the spear for 2A, dispelling the narrative that, “firearms are not for everyone.” I host many diversity shoots and women’s programs at my range, and I enjoy inviting politicians from both sides of the aisle to visit with us and further help our cause. It’s not your average shooting range; it’s the best.

There isn’t anyone that is more representative of the intended protection that the Second Amendment provides for Americans, or more dedicated to preserving our natural right to bear arms, that speaks louder or more often about American civil liberties, than me. In my personal time, I have chosen to fight the progressive socialist policy agenda with an inexorable presence and inescapable voice that refuses to be assailed by the mainstream media droning of an apparently, anti-American narrative. I host the nationally acclaimed Gun For Hire Radio podcast and have grown to become the visage of millions of honest Americans.

We are tired of compromising without reaping any benefits. We refuse to stare into the inevitable abyss of redundant policies and inane statues drafted by the very political oppressors that seek to disarm American Citizens, in the futile attempt at trampling on our inalienable rights, whether we are fighting for those rights on our property, or in our courts of law.

I have been an aggressive, outspoken Second Amendment defender for over thirty-five years in the tough NJ battleground and I have helped defeat many legislative attacks. I have made numerous television, radio, and Statehouse appearances. I am a no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point type of person that has been proudly accused of having “no filter.” I will fight for our 2A rights for as long as I am on this planet and I am asking you for your support.

Please Bullet Vote for Anthony Colandro and help bring new blood to the NRA board.

    1. How about taking legal action against those government officials (Congressmen, Governors, judges, or any other elected or appointed positions) who have taken an oath to uphold our Constitution, then flagrantly violate it by attempting to take away our rights?

    2. Will you do away whit the IDIOTIC N.R.A. ‘ wine club ‘ BS. ? — G.O.A. is nearing 2 Million Members because they stay focused.
      As many comments have pointed out , NRA state orgs. have a history of making things WORSE by meddling in gun issues. Snatching Defeat from the jaws of victory.

    3. My first requirement, for winning my vote, is that the candidate not be nominated by the NRA board. I will be bullet voting for those nominated by petition, only. Sorry LTC West.

    4. I’m looking for someone who will not only fight for our rights, but will actively pursue kicking out the traitors at the top level of management in the NRA and ILA, and their publicity firm cronies. You know who I’m talking about. Nobody gets my vote who won’t pledge to do just that.

    5. @Nanashi: “How about felons.” Consider that all where not convicted for violent acts nor all are inclined to violence. I do not know the number of non confined felons plus family violence misdemeanors that exist. I do know, with a few exceptions, that they no longer share all the citizen’s rights. This occurred not for justice, but by gun control laws. It is wishful thinking that weapons be keep from violent criminals and we should know what such a wish can bring. These felon access restriction from guns also cause restrictions on their families, friends, employers, customers, and even strangers who posses guns. Not only do anti-gunners seem not to care but it benefits their agenda.

      All Second Amendment supports, individual and groups, especially the NRA needs to stand fast against all new gun laws and aggressively repeal current anti-gun laws. Actually all that want to keep all rights should do the same’

    6. Glad to see Ammmoland running candidate paltforms and endorsing them! If the NRA is going to survive and once again become a GUN RIGHTS orginization; the cancer at hte top needs ot be removed!

      It is funny that so many piss and moan about “the Swamp” yet keep re-electing people to the board that alllows actual swamp monsters to stay in charge!

      Our biggest enemy is not “The Deep State” or the so called “Swamp monsters” in Govt. it is the Actual swamp monsters that lobby and empower; the current NRA leadership is that

    7. Will Ammoland be putting out a list of their endorsed candidates with links to articles on them?

      As I recall last year I’d submitted my ballot before a single candidate endorsement article appeared…and that was well into the election cycle.

    8. Another Jersey boy, tell me what you have done for your own state. If it is the same we have been complaining about the NRA on a national level I have a hard time seeing what you and your cronies can accomplish by being a board member of the NRA.

      1. HI Anthony has done a LOT for NJ firearms owners, have you listened to his Gun for Hire radio and podcasts?
        He opened Woodland Park Range just across the river from NYC, and expanded it to the property on the next lot.
        He should be on the NRA Board. I had the pleasure of meeting him six years ago at his facility and also ran into him at the NRA Convention in Dallas.

    9. Actively involved in firearms education and training- check (as we all should be). Cigar chomping, Rolex wearing “filterless” Jersey boy? If he had come out of left field; I’d have to say- Fuhgeduhbowdit (visions of Jimmy Hoffa dance through my head).

      In all seriousness; Anthony’s achievements speak for themselves. I’m be all in if he’s on record pushing for term limits and salary reductions for upper management. We need eloquence and bravado in there. If that comes with a little baddahbing- whatchuhgonnado?

    10. Hello everyone! My name is David Rosenthal. I’m the Vice President of the Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners (CNJFO). We work in UNITY here in NJ in a continuous application of teaching, volunteering, and providing news and empowerment of, by, and for all gun owners in the state. It is with great pride and pleasure that on behalf of all of our Executive Committee, members, supporters, friends and sponsors, that we do hereby officially ENDORSE Anthony Colandro for the NRA Board of Directors!

      Anthony is prepared to LEAD by EXAMPLE, as he has done his entire life. There is no one more suited for the job at hand to fix what needs fixing and to strengthen the NRA. Please BULLET VOTE FOR ANTHONY COLANDRO!

      David J. “Rosey” Rosenthal,
      NRA Life Member
      NRA-ILA 2017 Jay M. Littlefield Memorial Volunteer of the Year

    11. I’m sure he’s a terrific asset to the NRA and an excellent choice. In the first picture he looks like a recurring character on The Sopranos.

    12. Anthony is a stand up type of guy – loves NJ, loves firearms, and is a real activist here in NJ. But he also realizes it is an uphill battle with the communists in Trenton – which is the same as the good people in CA, CT, MA, MD, RI, and NY to name a few. We need people like him from extreme left liberal states to set the record straight on how to deal with the rabid moneybags anti-2A supporters out there.

    13. Anthony is just the guy we need in there to shake things up. He always does what he says and means what he says. Good luck Ant!

    14. Do you support removing Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox from their positions? Removing Ack-Mack?

      “dispelling the narrative that, “firearms are not for everyone.”

      How about felons?

        1. Hoplite you probably approved of the gillette ad about toxic masculinity. If his appearance resembles his comment he’s a handsome devil

      1. Oldmarine >>> Ugly95

        I agree with you 100% . Any Man who comes close to Charlton Heston will get my vote. We need a man
        with the willpower ad aggressiveness of Heston to stand and fight. If elected though he had better be a real
        fighter than a talking fighter. I like his style though, very much like trump .”Kick ass and take names” Not so
        political correct. >>>> Semper Fi

      2. There is a lot of good mammas that wear combat boots, some in war zones even to bed. Most communist pinkos do not have issued combat wear.

        I will vote for Anthony, and I agree with Hoplite’s statement.
