Can't post from the Arizona Republic, so here is the link:
Maybe more women will join the NRA as a result.
"The next time someone tells you that the militia referred to in the Second Amendment has been superseded by the National Guard, ask them who it was who prevented United Airlines Flight 93 from reaching its target."
"Those brave souls did what they could," she added. "But because they were unarmed, all they could do was crash that plane so more people wouldn't die. Think what they might have been able to do had they been armed."
Found this and a few links. http://188.8.131.52/focus/f-news/1127032/posts
bump for research
The popular media image of a National Rifle Association member"a male, beer-bellied, redneck-type wearing coveralls"doesnt fit Sandra S. Froman 74, she says. But in fact, asserts the partner with Snell & Wilmer in Tucson, "I am the typical NRA member."
Whats typical of the 2.8 million-member group that she is in line to serve as president in 2002, she says, "is theyre well-educated taxpayers who are law-abiding, respectful neighbors."
Froman, elected in June to serve two years as second vice president of the NRA, will, if tradition holds, assume the mantle of leadership after two more years as first vice president.
While the top job, currently filled by actor Charlton Heston, isnt a sure thingboard members could change their mindsFroman believes she has their confidence despite the divergent views they hold.
"I think Im viewed as a consensus builder," says the civil and labor litigator, who also chairs the Grassroots Development Committee of the NRA and is president of The NRA Foundation, a tax-exempt entity separate from the main organization.
If all goes as planned, Froman will become the groups second woman president. She hopes women leaders (12 of the 76 board members are female) will attract more womennow 10 to 15 percent of membersto the NRA.
Prior to Tucson, Froman was a litigation partner at Loeb & Loeb in Los Angeles and a law professor at Santa Clara Universitys College of Law.
An attempted nighttime break-in to her L.A. apartment prompted her to visit a gun store the next day. "That experience is what made me realize the world isnt as safe as I thought it was and I had to take responsibility for protecting myself," says Froman, who was in her early 30s and living alone at the time.
She bought a .45-caliber automatic pistol and took a gun safety course to learn how to use it. "Quite frankly," says Froman, "if that hadnt happened I wouldnt have taken up shooting."
Other reasons have since kept her involved with the NRA. "I believe the NRA is the premier civil liberties organization in this country: it continues to fight for personal liberties guaranteed by the Bill of Rightseven though its unpopular with some people."
I wonder if she's related to Abe Fromann, Sausage King of Chicago?
I don't get it. Kayne Robinson is the president of the NRA and has been for some time (since Heston retired). Anyone know more about this lady?
Don't you get the "American Rifleman"? La Pierre and Robinson have their own column in each issue.
If it counts, I used to read them haha.
Is that you, Ferris?
Well....you should at least enter the Quigley Sweepstakes in this months issue. You could possibly win Tom Selleck's Shiloh Sharps .45-110 Quigley rifle.
Excellent. She is one smart lady.
She's in my district; she's a GREAT person, strong and intelligent.
That's not something I'm worried about. Happy New Year!
