Pledge to NRA Members 

Nomination by Petition of the Members

I will ALWAYS run by petition, look members in the eye & meet them in person at events all over the nation. I will stay as long as I am of use to the members, continuing to earn their their trust even if nominated by the internal nominating committee in the future. 

Term Limit and Attendance

I will walk the talk of the Save the Second movement  on term limits and even if term limits are not implemented, I commit to serving no more than 3 terms on the board of directors and to attending every board and assigned committee meeting.  Boards need new blood and 3 terms is more than enough to make an impact.

On My Dime

The NRA is a non-profit.  I will provide financial support to the organization as one of my top 3 charities each year. 


I will not take any money from the organization.  I will pay my own expenses.  Our members money needs to be focused on programs and defending our rights.

Transparency and Accountability

I will be visible to the members attending events like Friends of NRA and NRA events and gun club meetings around the country.  I will continue to advocate for our rights at the federal, state and local level. I will be an advocate for the members to the board.  The lines of communication will always be open for NRA members.  I will keep members informed.
