Second Amendment Supporters Must Remember Multiple Things Can Be True, iStock-697763612
United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- One of the hardest parts of effectively defending the Second Amendment is figuring out how to straddle a lot of passions.

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- In the last eight months as a member of the NRA Board of Directors (BOD), I have been asked often by NRA members, pro-gun groups, and pro-second amendment reporters “Why does the NRA BOD refuse to terminate Wayne LaPierre’s employment in light of the accusations and evidence of mismanagement, malfeasance, and misuse of NRA funds for personal benefit?”
