Retired Lt. Colonel Oliver North Will Take Over as NRA President

“This is the most exciting news for our members since Charlton Heston became President of our Association”

In the next few weeks, retired Lt. Colonel Oliver North will take over as president of the National Rifle Association.

Lt. Colonel North is currently an NRA board member, served on Reagan’s National Security Council, and is an all-around badass.

According to an NRA press release published Monday, North will begin his new role as soon as his business affairs are in order.

“This is the most exciting news for our members since Charlton Heston became President of our Association,” said NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre. “Oliver North is a legendary warrior for American freedom, a gifted communicator and skilled leader. In these times, I can think of no one better suited to serve as our President.”

North said he was eager to take on this new role as soon as his business affairs were put in order. North is retiring from Fox News, effective immediately. “I am honored to have been selected by the NRA Board to soon serve as this great organization’s President,” North said. “I appreciate the board initiating a process that affords me a few weeks to set my affairs in order, and I am eager to hit the ground running as the new NRA President.”

The NRA Board acted quickly to begin the process for North to become President, after former NRA President Pete Brownell announced this morning that, in order to devote his full time and energy to his family business, he had decided not to seek election to a second term. In his letter to the Board, Brownell wholeheartedly endorsed North for President.

“Discussing this with Wayne LaPierre,” Brownell said in the letter, “he suggested we reach out to a warrior amongst our board members, Lt. Colonel Oliver North, to succeed me. Wayne and I feel that in these extraordinary times, a leader with his history as a communicator and resolute defender of the Second Amendment is precisely what the NRA needs. After consulting with NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox, First Vice President Childress and Second Vice President Meadows, I can report there is extraordinary support for Lt. Colonel North.”

…LaPierre congratulated the NRA Board for its action. “The board acted quickly and with great vision,” LaPierre said. “Oliver North is, hands down, the absolute best choice to lead our NRA Board, to fully engage with our members, and to unflinchingly stand and fight for the great freedoms he has defended his entire life.”

“Oliver North is a true hero and warrior for freedom,” LaPierre said, “and NRA members are proud to stand with him.”

Earlier this year, North visited the Israel/Syria border:

North open up a meeting at this past weekend’s NRA Annual Meeting with a prayer:

The NRA has already had a record fundraising year after gun control activists attempted to exploit tragedy to push for the dismantling of second amendment protections.

North seems like the perfect fit for the battle ahead and I’m sure he’ll do the job well.

It is not often I read political/societal news that gets me grinning ear to ear. This did.

The left wing corridors are red with red and gray matter from exploding heads.

    Oh, boy you got that right. If I want really low rent liberal trolling I go to the Breitbart comments section on the subject at hand and let me tell you they are out in force on this subject, lol.

    This assumes that those that traverse the “left wing corridors” have gray matter with which to explode. My bet is that it will be green matter – the color of vegetable matter, with red spatters – the color of blood and Marxism/Communism/Socialism. There might be a small amount of gray matter representing the brain stem, which gives them the ability to emote & involuntary (knee-jerk) movements, but not think.

Those whose memories go back to the days when tires and TVs had tubes inside them will remember Lt Col North for his part in selling weapons to Iran and diverting some of the money to revolutionaries in Central America. A bit of a mess altogether.

He’s a reminder that Obama’s wasn’t the first Administration to be bamboozled by the Persians.

On the other hand, the D’rats hate him, so that’s a plus.

    I was an adult in that era, as well. Moreover, I was transitioning from being a liberal to a staunch right winger and finally into a conservative.

    There were many facets to that story including Fawn Hall, Mmm Mmm, Mmm… and the nuances of Novell server software!

      Oh yeah, I’d forgotten about her, but I do remember her Big Hair.

      I loved 1980’s Big Hair!

      And IBM messaging/email software – Profs?

      I stayed home from work that day to watch the first day of his testimony. He struck me as a humble, loyal American soldier.

    My old 6 likes him, so that is good enough for me.

    Stan25 in reply to tom_swift. | May 7, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    This is when he was convicted on several felony charges and later were overturn, because he had immunity when he testified before Congress. The overturning over those convictions really upset the left.

    Immolate in reply to tom_swift. | May 7, 2018 at 5:23 pm

    And who was Iran at war with that they needed all them weapons?

Yes, tom_swift, he fought communists. For that the Democrats will never forgive him.

North is a fearless warrior, and unwaivering patriot.

Great, great news.

Hurray for Ollie-wood/NRA –
now if he can do something about the Sham that SecState Ketchup

This is great news for the oldest Civil Rights organization in the US. He is a true leader, and will do a great job.

While I like Col North, I’m … meh.

Now if he indicates that priorities for the NRA will be the passage of the Hearing Protection Act and the repeal of either the Hughes amendment or the NFA, THEN I’ll be happy. Hell, I might even join.

    Haha, let’s not jump the shark, just yet 🙂

    Who would you rather have? Boehner? McConnell? Ryan? Someone else from the GOPe rat club?

    North is an amazing pick.

      The Packetman in reply to TheFineReport.com. | May 7, 2018 at 8:37 pm

      “North is an amazing pick.”

      I’m quite sure he’ll do a fine job heading the NRA, like many presidents before him.

      But in 4 years, you’ll still need government permission to exercise a fundamental constitutional right in MA and IL; the Hearing Protection Act will still be unpassed; the few states that are ‘may issue’ states will still be ‘may issue’ and the quislings in congress that won’t do anything will still have their ‘A’ ratings (yes, Harry Reid had an A rating until recently, when it sunk all the way down to a … B). But they’ll still raise money with the best of them.

      I don’t think it will matter who’s the president, though Col North is as good a pick as any and much better than some.

As the state of Negotiating Rights Away since 1934,things won’t improve with Wayne,Chris and company with Norths appointment as president.

History
1791: The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is ratified.
The amendment reads:

“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state,
the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

After That
1871: The National Rifle Association was formed by Union Army veterans Col. William C. Church
and Gen. George Wingate.

After that, they start going the other way

1934:  http://www.atf.gov/pub/fire-explo_pub/nfa.htm

1939 http://www.atf.gov/pub/fire-explo_pub/gca.htm

1968: http://www.atf.gov/pub/fire-explo_pub/gca.htm

1986:  http://www.constitution.org/2ll/2ndschol/46hard.pdf

1993 https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/5087/text

1994 https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/5087/text

What is a inalienable individual right and what is a privilege?
What does “shall not be infringed” plainly mean?
Does the NRA support the unalienable individual right of the individual to keep and bear arms that shall not be infringed by government or does the NRA support government privileges?

This makes me feel like a million bucks.

He will be an activist (and ubiquitous) NRA President.
