NRA 2015 Ballots

March 18th, 2014

If you've been a member for five years (or a life member) you should have gotten your ballot in the February magazine. There are 29 candidates up for election, and you may write in others.

Some, like Tom Selleck and R. Lee Ermey, are easy endorsements. Charles Cotton has been an active litigant for us in Texas, and Linda Walker has been supportive in the Ohio legislature. Todd Rathner lobbies for the American Silencer Association and was instrumental in reforming Arizona's carry laws. Curtis Jenkins was the author of the PLCAA. Antonio Hernández Almodóvar is a bit unknown on the mainland, but he spearheaded two important court cases in Puerto Rico.

The ones we need to drum out aren't up for reelection this year. As far as write-ins go, Rob Pincus is campaigning for a spot, and he's a solid choice. I would love to see Colion Noir on the board, but he doesn't seem to be interested. Former SEAL Brandon Webb has campaigned for a spot, but his positions on mandatory training and background checks are unacceptable.

Ballots are due on April 6th. Make sure you get yours in.

    Brandon Webb's website mentions background checks only briefly. He doesn't say he'd support universal background checks, but I suspect he would. That would be too easy to make into a registry.

    He does say he supports mandatory, standardized training. I think this would very likely have the effect of significantly inflating the cost of gun ownership. Right now I work in a gun shop, and I see lots of people who can only find room in the budget for a Hi-Point C9 or a Pheonix Arms HP-22. Mandatory, standardized training would very likely price those people out of gun ownership, especially here in California.
