Preparing Today To Protect Freedom Tomorrow

Sunday, August 6, 2006

With the dog days of summer upon us, thoughts tend to turn to family, vacation, swimming pools, and barbeques.  Yet, while they may seem like a long way off, the 2006 elections are barely three months away!  In recent election cycles, gun owners have enjoyed tremendous successes.  But none of our victories have happened by accident.  It takes careful long-term advance planning to ensure victory for the Second Amendment on Election Day.

As in every election year, two things will win this year’s elections for gun owners--votes and hard work.  And no pro-Second Amendment candidate can do without both.  Be assured the anti-gun crowd is hoping you don’t turn out in support of our candidates.
 
If you are not currently registered to vote, or if you have recently moved, please make sure you register to vote at once.  And please ensure every one of your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners are registered voters as well.  For information on voter registration requirements, deadlines, and applications for your state, contact the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-VOTE (8683) or visit the “Register to Vote” section at www.NRAILA.org.
 
The second part of our formula for electoral success is actively volunteering your time to the campaigns of candidates who support our rights.  This is where your NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinator (EVC) becomes integral to our efforts.  Your EVC is an NRA member--just like you--who spearheads our volunteer campaign activities in your congressional district. 
 
For more than a decade, EVCs have been acting as the liaison between NRA members and gun owners in your district and various pro-freedom campaigns.  The main role of an EVC is to provide these campaigns with dedicated, educated volunteers to assist with phone banks, literature drops, precinct walks, voter registration drives, Election Day activities, and other volunteer campaign activities.  Your EVC is also the link in your area to assist with NRA-ILA’s legislative agendas at the federal, state, and local levels.
 
Even if you can spare only a few hours here and there, your EVC needs to hear from you.  To identify and contact your EVC, please visit www.NRAILA.org, or call the ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-VOTE (8683).  While most congressional districts are currently covered by an EVC, there are still vacancies we are trying to fill.  If you are interested in serving as your district’s EVC, or simply want to learn more about the program, please call ILA Grassroots and ask to speak to your state’s Grassroots Coordinator.  PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE.  CONTACT YOUR EVC TODAY!
