In normal times, I might have supported a few more on this ballot. However, these are not normal times when it comes to the National Rifle Association. It is being sued for dissolution by the Attorney General of New York, it has wasted millions of dollars on needless litigation, it is has a mostly complacent board who has no concept of their fiduciary duties, it has a CEO who looks at the organization as his personal piggybank, and the list goes on. Its most egregious sin in my opinion is that the grifters have lost sight of who they serve. The consequence of that is to put my civil rights and yours at risk which is unforgiveable.
As you can see from my ballot, I voted for only one person nominated by the Nominations Committee – Owen Buz Mills. I also wrote in the names of Frank Tait and Rocky Marshall. All three of these men have run companies, have served the Second Amendment, and have put the members first.
My ballot arrived in my American Rifleman today. It must be received by the auditing firm by August 15th.
If you want to see the NRA change and improve, then vote for change and improvement. If not, there is not much I can say.
And yes, that is a Charlton Heston forever stamp that I used.
UPDATE: I just noticed that I misspelled Boerne, Texas. I put a “U” where it should have been an “E”. I hope my misspelling doesn’t cause it to be tossed.
