See “Gunny” Take Charge!

Friday, February 24, 2012

Too many Americans have, for one reason or another, chosen to sit on the sidelines by not registering to vote. Unfortunately, this includes too many American gun owners.

That's why the NRA Freedom Action Foundation is wasting no time this year launching our massive "Trigger the Vote" voter registration drive.  Protecting our freedoms requires an informed electorate that's motivated to go to the polls. We know that when gun owners vote, freedom wins!

In virtually every state, you have to be registered before you can vote. That's why the NRA Freedom Action Foundation sponsors the important "Trigger the Vote" voter registration campaign, featuring film legend Chuck Norris as our Honorary Chairman.

This year, Chuck is getting an assist from another action hero—R. Lee "Gunny" Ermey, retired Marine, film and TV star, and member of the NRA Board of Directors. We are proud that Gunny volunteered his time to film a new voter registration ad, and we wanted to give NRA members the first look.

Watch the ad here and please be sure to send it to your friends, family, and fellow gun owners!
