I became an annual member of the National Rifle Association (NRA) soon after I enlisted in the U.S. Navy. I have since become a Life Member. I am involved in the political battles which would try to deprive me of the God given and Second Amendment guaranteed right to own any type firearms which I choose to protect myself and family from crime and tyranny from without and within. I am a member of the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA). Both these Organizations exist for the purpose of protecting our right from the gun-grabbers and the anti-hunters.
I am also a member of the Miami Valley Friends of NRA Committee, a local organization to raise funds for local and statewide needs such as hunter and gun safety programs, educational services, and gun range development.
