New Jerseyan wins NRA board seat

Anthony Colandro to Murphy, Grewal: ‘I’m watching you’

Anthony Colandro, who runs a gun range in Woodland Park, was elected to the National Rifle Association Board of Directors in a vote held at their annual convention in Indianapolis this weekend.

SaveJersey, a conservative news site, reported that while 75 board members were elected by mail-in ballot, Colandro won his seat in a vote open to all NRA members in attendance.

“I am ready to fight to fight. I am ready to help put New Jersey further on the map than we are already,” Colandro said in a message posted on social media. “The tip of my spear just got sharper.”

Colandro used his victory statement to put Gov. Phil Murphy and Attorney General Gurbir Grewal on notice that he’s ready to take them on.

“I own a range in New Jersey.  I fight for all of our civil rights and I’m watching you,” Colandro said.  “We’re going to fight you.  We’re going to sue you in the courts, and we are going to rally.”

The national gun rights group has been embroiled in turmoil over the past few weeks. The group’s president, Oliver North, has been accused by CEO Wayne LaPierre of “extortion” and pressuring him to resign.

  1. Yes Anthony and you are being watched as well as the NRA is the subject of numerous and manifold allegations tax violations.

  2. Support you 100%. As a former NJ resident, you’ve got a tough road ahead, especially with this horrendous, far left, socialist, progressive, governor. Luckily, as usual, liberals always mistake a “win” as a mandate to implement all their socialist goals, and go way overboard. This governor won’t be re-elected. The citizens are already putting together a recall to get this guy out. I’m not expecting it to get done, but it will put this clown on notice that his time is limited.

  3. This weekend’s NRA Annual Meeting was rife with infighting, intrigue, and power struggles galore. The NRA may be collapsing under the weight of its own scandals, but they’re still as dangerous as ever. That’s why we’ve been going all out to take on the NRA and defeat its extreme agenda.

    Everytown filed a formal complaint with the IRS regarding the extremist NRA’s tax-exempt status. We are fighting to make sure state and federal regulators investigate their tax-exempt status now.
    During the NRA’s Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, we ran print and online ads and put up billboards calling attention to the NRA’s extremism and scandals, including mobile billboard trucks we hired to drive around the convention hall with “NRA IN CRISIS” in big letters.
    On Saturday, Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action volunteers and gun violence survivors took part in our counter-programming to the convention — training volunteers on how to be effective advocates for gun violence prevention.

    1. Your role model is Venezuela, where the government banned private gun ownership seven years ago. Today they’re murdering their people in the streets and shooting them down like dogs.
