Thank you very much folks at AR15 for lending me your support and endorsement! I've worked hard for our Second Amendment Rights for several years and I'm not going to let up now!! I believe our Constitution should be upheld exactly as our forefathers wrote it!! And how dare any one want to trample upon our Second Amendment Rights. Without the 2nd, there wouldn't be a 1st!

I am the Central Ohio Chair of Buckeye Firearms Association. Here is a link to an article and my bio on our website, so that NRA voting members can check my extensive 2A credentials.

It should be in your magazine this month if you are a voting member.

Yeah but, I get lot's of mail from them, and they call me.

Wwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

They must still be mailing out the ballots, because someone I know who is a 5+ year annual member just received his yesterday, not in the magazine, but in an envelope.

I just got my ballot yesterday, and it will be on the way back in today's mail...
Link Posted: 3/3/2011 5:24:57 AM EDT
I just got the ballot in the mail yesterday, and haven't had a chance to read the bios yet.

But Eric Estrada? Really?

I know precisely zero about his 2A views, but this surprised me.

I got mine this week in the magazine, and the one for my son is in an envelope. I plan to get them sent out either today or tomorrow.

Edit - Both filled out, will be mailed tomorrow.

My wife (also a LM, and a huge fan of CHIPs back in the day ) noticed that one on her ballot immediately and asked me about it... and, FTR, I have no idea of his leanings/beliefs either.




No offense to Mr. Estrada, but this could be a HUGE red flag. I do not believe that "Hollywood star" is a de-facto qualification for an NRA Board position. At a minimum, he needs to put out a statement so that we know exactly where he stands.

PROVIDED his views are in line with the purpose of AR-15.com, ownership of AR15s and the 2nd Amendment, then I think Mr. Estrada COULD be quite an asset to the NRA. He is certainly well-known, he is well-liked by many (really enjoyed the show) and he could appeal to the growing Hispanic citizen community in our country (George Bush also did a good job in this area & it was a very wise move IMHO).

Thank you for providing an endorsement. It's a good place to start.


Also, bump.

i mailed mine in today

Already mailed in my ballot, but I think I voted for most of your endorsements. I also voted for Tom Selleck. He would make an excellent high profile spokesman along the lines of Charlton Heston. A quiet dignity that would resonate well with the public.
Link Posted: 3/15/2011 8:28:23 AM EDT
Bump for worthy cause. Don't forget to vote!

Charles L. Cotton of Friendswood, TX is on the ballot and is a good, local guy. FYI he'd be a good guy to have on the board.

Please explain WHY he'd be a good guy to have on the board (for the benefit of people considering him as a candidate).

I'm gonna bump again. It's been 3 days since it was, last. Important stuff here, IMO.

I got Selleck in there as well for the same reason.

Oh, and he also loves the humble 1911.

Thanks to all that participated. Look forward to seeing the official voted posted. Could we get that posted in GD as well? It should be of interest to all.
