The National Rifle Association’s Freedom Action Foundation is launching their 2014 “Trigger the Vote” Voter Registration Campaign. But because a pun does not a pro-gun voter movement make, the NRA’s once again turning to Chuck Norris to kick some PR ass. The diminutive, plastic surgery-friendly action hero will lead The Campaign to Defend our Freedom. Perhaps not the ideal person to lead a “vigorous non-partisan voter registration program;” Chuck is so right wing the American flag salutes him. The new triggerthevote.org website is user-friendly and NRA branding shy, but it shows where America’s oldest civil rights organization missed a trick. Fellow NRA member, champion shooter and Taurean Jessie Duff absolutely rocks the vote! Full press release after the jump . . .
National Rifle Association’s Freedom Action Foundation Announces 2014 “Trigger the Vote” Voter Registration Campaign
Honorary Chairman Chuck Norris Will Lead the Campaign to Defend our Freedom
Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association’s Freedom Action Foundation (NRA-FAF) announced the kickoff of its 2014 “Trigger the Vote” voter registration campaign, and also unveiled its captivating new ad, “Father and Son,” which can be viewed here.
The campaign once again enjoys the support of Honorary Chairman Chuck Norris, and will soon be releasing exclusive new videos featuring Norris that can’t be seen anywhere else.
One of the missions of NRA-FAF is to protect the Second Amendment through a vigorous non-partisan voter registration program. The initial “Trigger the Vote” campaign was introduced in 2009, and it has expanded in scope and reach in every election cycle since. The program uses a variety of means of communications to connect gun owners and Second Amendment supporters with tools to facilitate the voter registration process, and ensure that they are prepared to cast an informed ballot on Election Day. Trigger the Vote field teams have been visiting events across the nation since May of this year to register new voters in person.
This year, Trigger the Vote is also releasing its redesigned website, www.TriggerTheVote.org . The site has new, robust user-friendly tools to help gun owners and Second Amendment supporters easily register to vote, check to make sure their existing registration is current, as well as locate their polling place.
“The Freedom Action Foundation is one of the most critical parts of the NRA,” explained NRA-FAF President Chris W. Cox. “Through its valuable work, the NRA is able to reach millions of freedom-loving Americans and ensure that they are prepared to exercise their right to vote.”
