Retired Marine Lt.-Col. Oliver North has just been named the new president of the National Rifle Association – all but guaranteeing the anger and tears of every liberal in the country.
From Conservative Post:
NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said of the decision:
“This is the most exciting news for our members since Charlton Heston became president of our association. 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 is also an outspoken conservative and Christian, not to mention a close confidante to former President Ronald Reagan.
Those are credentials that make North a top target for liberals.
It’s also the reason we applaud the NRA for having the guts to name such a “controversial” hero as its new chief.
What do you think of this decision? Is this a smart move on the part of the NRA?
