Lee’s note: I just emailed this to each member of the NRA’s Board of Directors.
Dear Board Member,
My name is Lee Williams. I am the senior investigative reporter at the Herald-Tribune, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning daily newspaper in Sarasota, Florida.
I also operate The Gun Writer.com, a pro-gun website fully supported by my newspaper.
I recently wrote a series of stories about NRA’s “blended training” program, which requires beginner students to take the first portion of the Basic Pistol class online, and then complete their certification with an actual live instructor.
The program uses a computer to teach new shooters critical skills such as gun safety and shooting fundamentals, rather than an actual live instructor.
If you have time to read just the first story, “NRA wrong, and mum about online training requirements,” I am certain you will understand what needs to be done.
If you have any questions, I can be contacted easiest on my cell: (941) 284-8553.
With warm regards and respect,
