STS Board Members Discuss 2019 Fall NRA Board Meeting

Three of our four Board Members were able to attend portions of the 2020 Fall NRA Board Meeting and interact with NRA Directors. Unfortunately, the NRA as an organization was not prepared or welcoming to any of the Members who attended the meetings, much less accommodating to the concerns of Save The Second.

In this hour long conversation, the STS Board discusses the highlights, and the lowlights, of the experience… as well as the disappointing position that the Bylaws Committee took on our NRA Voting Member Petition Driven proposal to add a Minimal Attendance Rule for Board Members to the NRA Bylaws.

Watch and Listen to Ron Carter, Anthony Garcia, Rob Pincus and Andy Lander discuss the 2019 Fall NRA Board Meeting HERE.
