For those voting members that are still sitting on their NRA ballots, thank you for procrastinating! You can still help with an important vote! There is a California board member that we must insure is re-elected...

...Manny Fernandez

The official bio...
Nominated for re-election by Nominating Committee. Current Director. NRA Executive Committee, Legislative Policy, Sports Shooting (Chairman), Urban Affairs (Vice Chairman), Membership. Effective fighter against gun control. Lifelong shooter, hunter, collector, reloader. Proven leader in California. Organizes activist groups. Aggressively advocate, individual freedoms. Eloquent speaker that has testified at legislative hearings and confronted gun prohibitionists on radio and TV. A former journalist that has successfully dealt many times with the lying media. Quoted in Life and World News Report. Winning plaintiff in lawsuit that forced Los Angeles to issue carry permits. Created innovative, winning techniques that terminated the careers of corrupt gun banning politicians Roos and Roberti. A California State University graduate. where he studied Political Science and Law, Manny lived in Cuba under the communist dictatorship of Castro and knows the oppression that results when people are disarmed. He has demonstrafed his commitment to the uncompromising defense of the Bill of Rights.

I'd like to expound on the part: "...created innovative, winning techniques that terminated the careers of corrupt gun banning politicians Roos and Roberti..."

He's the originator of the famous movement to recall flaming anti-gun senator Roberti as well as the "Stamp Out Roos" program. As such, Manny is arguably the founder of the grassroots RKBA movement in California.

Manny obviously isn't a celebrity movie star or director. But he is just plain angry at what's happened in the Golden State - his recall efforts are historic. But his wit and style are evident at every grassroots meeting I've seen him appear before.

And while I don't think it an issue that should decide one's vote, Manny helps portray the truth about NRA - that we are a diverse family that represents America. Don't you just love shooting down those tired, old NRA stereotypes?

So if you're like me, and still haven't put the stamp on the envelope and sent it off yet, PLEASE VOTE FOR MANNY FERNANDEZ. He's good for our NRA.

Mike,

Wasn't Manny one of the two guys that (combined) lost $700+K in fines to the FPPC for not doing some paperwork right regarding the CAC organization ("Californians Against Corruption") that brought down Roberti?

He wasn't charged with any fines - other than that, don't know. I was just undergoing my RKBA awakening back in the late 80's (unlike pioneers like Manny) and didn't even own any black ugly guns yet. But you're right - one guy was hit hard. A recall is a direct frontal attack - gutsy guys like Manny make lots of enemies.

Friends, I have gotten word that both John Burtt...

...and Tommy Gaines...

...have been elected/re-elected to the NRA Board. GREAT WORK!

But Manny hasn't gotten notification yet, which probably means he hasn't the margin yet. Please, in the last few days left (must be postmarked by April 30), if you know ANYONE that still hasn't voted, ask them to check ONLY Manny Fernandez on the ballot in their magazine and send it in - VOTE!

("Bullet voting", i.e., voting for only one person when you could vote for more, is a way of increasing the power of your one vote.)

Thanks again,

Mike,

On p. 32 of the March issue, it says, "YOUR BALLOT MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN APRIL 30, 2006." Again, on the "VOTING INSTRUCTIONS FOR DIRECTOR ELECTION" page, it says, "BALLOT MUST BE RECEIVED NOT LATER THAN APRIL 30, 2006."

Are you sure the "mailbox rule" applies (i.e., the postmarked date is considered the "acceptance" (i.e., received) date)?

I just want to make sure any super-procrastinators do not get left out.

Thanks, Paladin, you are right! The ballot must be received by April 30th. Thanks alot for checking this.

That means tomorrow is the last opportunity anyone would have to help keep this Californian on the Board - in overnight mail. it's that important.

I just sent my ballot in yesterday, priority mail. I always wait until the last moment in case of an emergency like this. I voted ONLY for Manny, it's that important.

If you're a disgruntled NRA voting member that wasn't going to vote at all, please think about this. Manny is one of the toughest black gun advocates there. If you can see your way clear, I'm sure you would not regret sending in your ballot after all, with a vote ONLY for Manny. (and the more you care about black guns, the more likely you may be to regret NOT doing it).

Thanks for putting up with me. It's that important. :-)

Well, you can't win them all.

Got the final word on the candidates listed at http://NRAWinningTeam.com/ -
http://NRAWinningTeam.com/gfx/wt2006.jpg (http://NRAWinningTeam.com/)

Thanks all, especially for helping out Manny (finished 10th), Tom (finished 11th) and John Burtt (not sure of standing). I received thank you notes from John B. and Tommy (so far), both pass on their sincere gratitude. I'm sure all feel the same way.

And just between us, it's really good that California didn't lose a board member. Good job!

Mike
