The annual meeting of the National Rifle Association wrapped up after a weekend in Atlanta, and a visit from President Trump. And with a new NRA president. The board of directors picks Pete Brownwell to head the NRA. He’s from Montezuma, Iowa and is part of the long-lived family firearms retailer Brownell’s. Wayne Lapierre will continue as executive vice-president and legendary NASCAR owner Richard Childress is now first vice-president.
Texas state lawmakers are looking to cut down the price of a carry permit. The very gun-friendly lone state has often been criticized for it’s expensive permit fees, at a $140, one of the nation’s highest. A new bill would bring the price down to $40 for both new licenses and renewals and would be free for peace officers. That would make it be one of the lowest cost permits in the USA.
And those are your Bullet Points! I’m Eben Brown, FOX News.
