"I am pleased to congratulate Oliver North on being selected as President of the NRA, and undertaking the tremendous responsibility that comes with this role," said Congressman Black. “Our constituents deeply cherish their 2nd Amendment rights protected under the U.S. Constitution, and we trust that those values will be upheld under his leadership.”
