NRA Members Put Oklahoma's Boren On Board
District 2 U.S. Rep. Dan Boren, D-Muskogee, believes he will be able to do even more to help gun owners in eastern Oklahoma now that hes been named to the National Rifle Associations Board of Directors.
Boren, who was nominated to the board in February, has now been confirmed by a vote of NRA members.
Wherever theres anti-hunting or anti-gun-owning legislation, we want to stop that, Boren said.
Boren was nominated in February, and confirmed recently by a vote of NRA members. Boren was one of 26 board members elected from 34 nominees.
"The Second Amendment is an important part of Oklahoma and this nation's heritage, and I pledge to uphold it for all who wish to keep their families safe and for sportsmen, shooters, and hunters everywhere," said Boren.
"I harvested my first buck at age 9, and have taken one every season since. I can still remember having to calm my buck fever that morning on my first hunt many years ago," Boren said. "I grew up watching the NRA defend our Second Amendment rights, just like I grew up learning gun safety and marksmanship."
