NRA In The States
I think this is vital information to communicate when we are speaking with current and potential new members about what the NRA has done for us.The best I can do in the space allotted for my column is to give you a broad-brush recap of just some of our accomplishments at the state level during 2021 alone.
NRA-ILA has passed emergency powers laws in seven more states—so the government can’t take away your Right to Keep and Bear Arms in times of emergency. (Remember Hurricane Katrina and the City of New Orleans);
NRA-ILA passed laws strengthening your right to self-defense in 20 additional states;
NRA-ILA has been victorious in derailing gun bans and magazine bans in more than a dozen states;
2021 started with 16 states having constitutional carry laws on the books, but we added five more states in 2021 and more are on the way.
Again, the above-listed accomplishments were in just one year—2021!
