NRA Board Meeting

Sitting in the peanut gallery for the NRA Board Meeting. NRA people are among the best people to be around celebrating something like Osama Bin Laden meeting an untimely demise at the business end of an American rifle. I was in the hotel bar when it happened.

Watching R. Lee Ermy be sworn in as a new Board Member as I’m typing this. I’m not against celebrity board members who can bring something to the table, and who at least try to show up for board meetings. The fact that Ermey is here is a good sign.

I’m told there will be an interesting speaker at this meeting. Stay tuned for updates.

UPDATE: George Morris lost his wife in the Tucson mass shooting, and is addressing the NRA Board.

“I will be your spokesman, as my wife would wish, to be your spokesman, to tell everyone that it wasn’t a gun that killed my wife.”

“I will be your spokesperson in protecting the Second Amendment going forward.”

UPDATE: Major Land is giving his report. The store set a new record $449,947 of merchandise. That’s 8% more than last year. Membership sold $558,711 worth of memberships or upgrades. We did not set a record this year, but came close. This year 71,139 members attended Annual Meeting. That’s only 989 people short of the record in Charlotte.

Remember folks, NRA are just shills for the gun industry.

UPDATE: David Keene is now NRA president. James Porter is now First Vice President.

UPDATE: Removed previous update. There was a misunderstanding on my part.

  1. I am glad R. Lee Ermey is on the Board now. He will do more than just show, he will speak up. If someome gets their feelings hurt by what he says, it is just too bad.

  2. We owe a big thank you to Mr. Morris and the other survivors and their loved ones of that terrible day who have chosen to nobly come forward in their sorrow to provide a counter-weight to those who would use the empathy of Americans to unjustifiably restrict our fundamental rights by blaming the object and not the criminal that wielded it.

  3. Just stumbled on your page. Like it. Your coverage of the meeting helps a little to make up for the fact that I’m not there. I’m jealous. I want to add my thanks and condolences to Mr. Morris. And I love the fact that Ermey is on the board. I voted for him. I doubt that he will be the silent type – he will be out there pushing for us.
