Ron Schmeits at SAFE Conference

NRA President addresses the 2009 Firearm Civil Rights Conference. Ron Schmeits, the 60th president of the NRA, shares the lifetime journey that brought him to the front lines of the gun rights movement with the Sportsmen's Alliance for Firearms Education (SAFE) conference in New York. From his childhood experiences hunting and shooting in a small Nebraska town to the culture shock of college and the anti-gun liberals at his first banking job in Minnesota, Schmeits shows that his experiences have not only prepared him for this position, but they also reflect that anyone and everyone can make a difference for the Second Amendment.
