Texas Businessman Rick Figueroa Announces Candidacy for NRA Board of Directors

Figueroa Seeks to Broaden Membership and Restore Gun Rights for Americans.

Brenham, Texas – -(AmmoLand.com)- Rick Figueroa is known in political and business circles across America. He has always been on the forefront, helping those fighting for liberty and their constitutional rights. His current involvement with NRA’s outreach includes working with minority communities, which opened the door for his candidacy. He recognized early that the NRA needed more inclusion.

“I am a person who believes in freedom and liberty,” says Figueroa. “The NRA is the last line of defense to protect our American right to have firearms without government constraint. Freedom is not just a slogan; it is a strategy that has kept this country prosperous, strong and a beacon of hope to the world. Without these rights, America could very well become a socialist, even a communist nation.”

The Last Bastion of Freedom.

“There are many leadership challenges and issues that need to be addressed given the onslaught of attacks against our Second Amendment rights,” he says.

“Thankfully we have an organization that is striving to address those issues on behalf of many diverse groups of people, reaching the next generation, and reinforcing the concerns with current active members who want a Board Leader who will fight for our gun rights like never before.”

The NRA membership is a voice heard at the highest level of government and is comprised of 75 board members, with 25 rotating off the board each year. Mr. Figueroa is being considered along with 35 other candidates.

Reaching the Next Generation

Figueroa’s campaign is being implemented by Charlie Alpha Consulting based in League City, with a focus on grassroots support, key endorsements, and social media.

    The NRA has become an organization of platitudes and no direct action. I could care less who is running for the board.

    I did not see whether Mr Figueroa was nominated by the NRA board or by petition of the membership. Perhaps I just missed it.

    The GOA is working at repealing NFA where is the great NRA in this fight. Everyone wants to be a board member because it pays well and you don’t have to show up to work.

    My comment is not towards this man directly but towards everyone seeking to become an NRA Board member. What is wrong with saying what your real position is on the 2A . Will you vote to repeal the 68 GCA? Are you against Red Flag laws? At one time there was a movement to repeal the Brady Bill. Will you work to repeal the NICS? What about laws at the State level will you support a repeal of various magazine and gun bans? Would you be willing to repeal other laws like the Illinois FOID card law? Please dont come… Read more »
