Director, shooter, hunter, activist

Carol Bambery, of DeWitt, Michigan, has been a member of the NRA board of directors since 1998. Over those twelve years, she has worked tirelessly  for National Rifle Association members. (Click on the menu above for details).

The average director serves on three committees; Carol serves on six. The hardest work falls on the committee chairs and vice-chairs.  Carol chairs a committee, and is vice chair to three more.

She helped found the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners (MCRGO), which headed the successful drive to give Michigan a "right to carry" law. She created MCRGO's Foundation and its political action committee, and serves as president of its Foundation.

As MCRGO's attorney, Carol won a judgment striking down several Michigan cities' bans on carrying firearms in public buildings. Gun Week's report on her victory is here.

Carol was also attorney for Michigan United Conservation Clubs, which represents over 470 gun and conservation organizations, and has 120,000 members.

As a law professor at Thomas Cooley School of Law, Carol established one of the nation's few law school classes on the Second Amendment. NRA made her chair of its National Firearms Law Seminar, which annually educates hundreds of pro-gun attorneys.

Carol filed friend of the Court briefs in the Supreme Court, in District of Columbia v. Heller and in the pending Chicago gun case. She and her husband Daniel are authors of the book "A Commonsense Guide to Michigan Gun Laws."

Carol is not only a gun rights activist, she loves to shoot and hunt, and is a member of the Boone and Crockett Club. She has three daughters, all shooters, and two grandchildren.

Her candidacy has been endorsed by Col. Brown and his magazine, Soldier of Fortune.

A tip for voters: that you can vote for 25-26 directors doesn't mean you have to. Most of us have five or ten directors that we really want on the board. If you vote for them, rather than feeling compelled to vote for all that you can, you maximize their chances; votes for candidates that you don't really feel strongly about might elect them over the candidates that you do care about.
