NRA board elections roundup
Here's a quick roundup of gun bloggers and others' recommendations for the 2007 NRA Board of Directors' election.
I've especially recommended re-election of president Sandy Froman, and of the hardworking director Carol Bambery (who serves on six committees, plus on the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund, chairs the NRA Foundation's National Firearms Law Seminar, and was counsel to MUCC and MCRGO).
Bitter quite agrees, on Sandy ("She rocks") here and on Carol ("a great choice for the Board") here (She promises to add a couple more soon, and I won't spoil the suspense). UPDATE: Here they are. Sandy Froman, Carol Bambery, Susan Howard, and Bob Barr.
Col. Brown of Soldier of Fortune recommends Steve Schreiner, President of the Firearms Coalition of Colorado, and winner of the Bronze and Silver Stars in 'Nam.
I put a tip on voting in Board elections in extended remarks below.
Just one tip: when I started voting, on, 20 years ago, I would take the number of votes allowed and fill up to that number. This year it's 26.
I later figured out why it was unwise to do this. In practice, there would be 15-20 people that I felt quite qualified, and I was then adding some others about whom I was uncertain. In practice, I was adding to the vote count of those of whom I was uncertain, and some years some of them would beat out people I felt were solidly qualified.
Thus I learned to vote for the folks I felt were quite qualified, and stop there, even if it was less than the 25-26 allowed.
