A petition drive is under way, seeking the recall of NRA Board member Joaquin Jackson. The drive is motivated by the discovery of an interview in which Jackson, a former Texas Ranger, spoke out against private ownership of military-style semiautomatic rifles and firearms with a magazine capacity greater than 5 rounds.

More details are located here" :!:

(Note, to sign the petition you need to be a Life member or an annual member for 5+ years).

This guy is a moron. His little "spiel" on civilians and what they should and shouldn't be allowed to own is one of the few reasons I haven't joined the NRA yet.

We need to get him off the board - zero tolerance for men such as this.

That really ticks me off. I'll sign the petition.
I'm an NRA Life Member, so I'm eligible to sign it, too.

No NRA board member has the right to do us the damage that Jackson has done.

Please note that the official NRA position does not agree with Jackson's stated position. The NRA was quite vocal and active in ensuring that the Clinton Gun Ban would expire.

How is this guy any different from the rest of the NRA?
Because the rest of the NRA does not hold with the position that this guy stated. I was watching closely when the 1994 Clinton Gun Ban was about to expire. The NRA pushed very hard for it to indeed expire. They wanted the magazine-capacity restrictions and the so-called "assault-weapon" bans to expire ... and so they did.

Yeah but they also approved of the Clinton Ban when it was originally proposed. What changed their minds?

Perhaps a lot of really ticked off NRA members, and a corresponding drop in fundraising.

I think that the NRA has improved in the last decade, but I have not been a member that whole time.
