Where history was made. Record breaking attendance – 87, 154 Record breaking fundraising Record breaking new memberships – the NRA now has almost 6 Million members! President Trump and Vice President Pence visit NRAAM together Lt. Colonel Oliver North to become the President of the National Rifle Association of America     Carrie’s Take Aways   The attack on the NRA and our second amendment unlike anything we have seen before. Those opposed to our Second Amendment Rights are coming at us from every direction in a complex and sophisticated attack with unlimited funding. The midterm elections this year are not just important; they are critical to the preservation of our Second Amendment rights. We MUST elect pro gun candidates to maintain majorities in congress and the senate. Typically there are 20-25 seats to fill. This year there are approximately 75. One of the most important tasks of the NRA ILA is to support and work to get pro gun candidates elected. This of course takes resources of dollars and people. As you know the dollars it takes to do this in today’s elections is skyrocketing. To get 75 pro gun candidates into office is a monumental task. You must vote and we all must do what we can to financially support ILA   Donations to NRA support NRA programing, donations to ILA support political efforts.   https://donate.nraila.org/Donate       The people behind the NRA are amazing people.  The Board of Directors, the staff and the volunteers are passionate patriots. They love this country and are committed to protecting our rights.     Tip Time - Get in touch with, connect with, and support NRA Women programs and efforts    NRA Women’s Leadership Women’s Luncheon and New Energy Breakfast for women.   There was a staggering 1200 women in attendance at this year’s luncheon.   400K was raised specifically for the NRA school Shield program.   https://www.nationalschoolshield.org/   NRA Women http://www.nrawomen.tv/   NRA women’s Leadership Forum nrawlf.com   Cool products    GLOCK giveaway: The WON and GLOCK have partnered to give away a gun, a GLOCK 19 Gen 5 in 9mm.    http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/2018/05/wanna-win-won-how-about-a-glock-19-gen5/  Giveaway runs till May 19.   TWAW Product of the week – The Anatomy Of A Warrior by Alex Lansche  $19.99   https://thewellarmedwoman.com/product/anatomy-of-a-warrior-the-7-virtues-all-warriors-must-live-by-to-successfully-protect-and-serve/     WON post of the week: We are so proud of Ashlee Lundvall and the announcement of her nomination to be on the President’s Sport, Fitness and Nutrition Council! http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/2018/05/ashlee-lundvall-to-be-appointed-to-the-presidents-council-on-sport-fitness-and-nutrition/   Ashlee writes for us at The WON, sponsored by Volquartsen Custom Firearms   TWAW Giveaway of the Month Spoil Mom Giveaway – Suds, Sweets & A Springfield in a Satchel   https://thewellarmedwoman.com/giveaway-of-the-month/     Please follow us on Facebook and Pinterest, to see up-to-the-minute happenings and behind-the-scenes photos and videos.
