Tallahassee, FL – -(AmmoLand.com)- Every year the National Rifle Association of America each year conducts elections to select our Board of Directors. As we approach the 148th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Indiana where one of this years NRA Board of Director meetings will be held we have received news that Florida's Marion P. Hammer has been re-elected to another three years as an NRA-BOD.
“I am proud and humbled to have been re-elected to the NRA Board of Directors for another 3-year term. I can’t express enough thanks to those of you who have honored me with your votes. Your confidence in me is deeply appreciated and I look forward to continuing to work for you.” ~ Marion P. Hammer
Marion P. Hammer has been the National Rifle Association’s lobbyist in Tallahassee for more than 30 years.
She was the NRA’s president from 1995 to 1998, is a member of the NRA’s Executive Council and has been executive director of the Unified Sportsman of Florida, an affiliate of the NRA, since 1978.
Hammer was inducted into the Florida Women's Hall of Fame in 2005. That same year, she successfully lobbied for passage of the “stand your ground” law, calling the proposal the NRA’s top priority of the year. Since then, 24 other states have joined Florida in permitting the use of deadly force when a person thinks their life is threatened.
Editors Note: AmmoLand News has provided extensive coverage of NRA-BOD elections and we can report that the current Boad of Directors read your comments and are influenced by them. Thank you to our readers for keeping the dialog on going.
