You Won’t Believe Who The NRA’s New President Is. Reagan Would Be Proud

Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised, but I have to tell you, I didn’t see this coming. Some people you think are natural choices to the be the next president of the National Rifle Association, but other people just don’t pop in your head when the question comes up.

But, despite my surprise, the NRA has made their choice for their next president, and it is none other than Oliver North. I think President Reagan would be proud.

The NRA had this to say in a news release (hat tip to here for the lead):

Lt. Colonel Oliver North, USMC (Ret.) will become President of the National Rifle Association of America within a few weeks, a process the NRA Board of Directors initiated this morning.

“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.”

Lt. Colonel North, who has been a Fox News commentator, has said that he is retiring from Fox News, “effective immediately.” His initial statements indicate that he is very excited about this opportunity. He said,

I am honored to have been selected by the NRA Board to soon serve as this great organization’s President. 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.

It’s hard to say exactly what, if any changes that North will bring to the organization, but it’s possible that he will do more to generate excitement and galvanize the NRA’s support base than anyone since Charlton Heston. So, this has the potential to do good things for that organization. Let’s hope that they use his influence to make major strides to help end gun control.

  1. I think having Lt Col Oliver North as the new president of the NRA is fabulous! He is a warrior who understands the true price of freedom. He’s been highly active and we need that high energy from the NRA. All of us that wish to protect the constitution and this country need to stand up beside and behind this true American

  2. I could not think of a better person for the job. God bless you ,and may Jesus guide you in every decision.

  3. I must say, I didn’t see that coming either. Wayne LaPierre was a great president, but he was more of a politician. We need a soldier and fighter at a time when the line has been drawn since the election of Pres. Trump.
    As a life member of the NRA and former member of the Marine Corps Ready Reserve, Lt. Colonel North has my full support.
    SEMPER FI AND GIVE ‘EM HELL!!!

  4. I hope he can help California we can barley say the g. Word in this state without going to jail there is hardly a place to Von shooting any more.

  5. Like new marine sniper rifle and “”love the new”” NRA presiden.

    Oooooorrrrraaaaaaah…Semper Fi!!!!!

  6. First joined the NRA in 1968, when shooting in an NRA Jr Shooting Club. Been around a while. My cousin was a Lt Col in the Marines, and a brother officer of Oliver North, at the time of the Afgan Arms thing. He made the statement that North needed to be hung from the first crossarm they could fine, but would not comment further on that.

  7. OOORRRAAAHHH!!! for Col. North. As a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer and Life member, I couldn’t be happier.

  8. G lad some one woke up in this country. Question: How can all of these shootings happen, don’t
    the perps know you are not supposed have a gun in a “GUN FREE ZONE?” I, for one believe that
    they are moles called upon to do their duty, I.E. as in brain washed.

  9. Extremely fitting. Can’t think of anybody who fits the mold better. By the way, I notice almost complete support comments, except for one troll doing his thing. Ron M, go put your clothes on, come up out of your mother’s cellar, and try to find a job.

  10. Just to set the record straight Wayne LaPierre has never been President. He was and still is the Exective Vice President.
    The outgoing President is Pete R. Brownell

  11. Oliver North is a man every NRA member can be proud to call our president. He is a proven warrior and a man of courage. Congratulations Colonel North. The NRA just won a big one.

  12. I am a former Army Chaplain Assistant from the Vietnam war and served in the 199th Light Infantry Brigade as personal assistant to and protection for under the Geneva Accords, chaplain (CPT.) Charles Angelo Liteky, MOH awardee for Valor and one of only 3 Chaplains to be so honored and recognized in that war. I had been a member of the Cape Ann Sportsman’s Club from 1959-1966 but like many others did not for a long time use any weapons at all after my Vietnam experiences. I am a Life Member of the NRA and have been a concealed carry advocate since a potentially fatal incident in which judicious use of pepper spray prevented such a denouement but I was lucky. Had the perpetrator had A GUN, THINGS COULD HAVE BEEN VERY DIFFERENT! I felt I NEEDED an equalizer as I am getting older and not younger, therefore less able to properly defend against such unexpected but possibly lethal incidents; particularly as I travel alone up and down the East Coast from Maine to Florida quite regularly. Perhaps Colonel North can prevail upon Congress to pass universal reciprocity for those with CC legal authorization. Here’s hoping, as law abiding competent NRA members ;ARE NOT the problem. Weak leftist judges and black market providers of illegal firearms, street gangs , Antifa, MS-13 advocates and BLM terrorists (Take your pick of Black Lives Matter or Bureau of Land Management employees) and others are. So is EVERY politician who takes a sworn oath to” defend and uphold the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” but who fail in that responsibility; making them malfeasant in office and derelict in duty and obligation to their American citizen constituencies and for which failures they should be removed from office as Violators of their oaths AND UNFIT TO HOLD SUCH POSITIONS. Why is there no Justice for us and a different standard for those cretins in elective office? Valid question; WOULD ANY SUCH CRETIN CARE TO MAKE PUBLIC YOUR ANSWER? In the meantime: sincere Congratulations to Colonel North, a candidate eminently qualified for the Presidency of the NRA who over his term WILL, I am sure, be one of the most successful EVER to hold the position.

  13. Oliver North is the best man for the job, SEMPER FI AND GIVE ‘EM HELL!
    Congratulations Colonel North!!!!

  14. Well it’s about time, Ronald Reagan, Charolton Heston would be proud, Oliver North is an Excellent choice, however Ollie has a lot of work to do, with all these Liberals coming out of the woodwork especially Liberal idot’s from California. My parents moved from Missouri to California in 1970 when I was only 9 years old, in those days we had no issues in reguards to shooting our guns in public or private land, farmer’s in the Delta rich farm land gave us written permission to hunt or target practice, man has it changed 4 the worst, my family can’t wait to move the Hell out of “California” we are so SICK & TIRED of this Lying Greedy “California Government” especially the lying Filthy Rich Pelosis & Feinsteins & Jerry Browns!!!! They make us proud American Taxpayers sick to our stomach. We could go on & on but I think all members of the NRA get our point!!!!!!!!!!
