HOT OFF THE WIRE FROM THE CNJFO PAGE:

CNJFO AT NRA BOARD MEETING & PRESIDENT's RECEPTION!
OLIVER NORTH & ILA's COX PROUD OF JOB WE DO HERE IN NJ!
by Black Wire Media Monday Sept. 10, 2018 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

We need "pinched" after last weekend! Having the ability to personally thank the NRA Board of Directors, the incoming NRA President Lt. Col. Oliver North, NRA-ILA's Chris Cox & Christian Ragosta, many of the famous & not so famous board members for their gracious hospitality and the great honor bestowed upon two of our Jersey boys was simply amazing! Having them tell us in their own words, unscripted, how they recognize our efforts & leadership in the fight for 2nd Amendment rights is truly inspirational! We're proud of Colandro & Rosenthal, all of our committee people, and ANJRPC's Scott Bach & Dan Schmutter for all you do to further our cause.

CNJFO COMMITTEES CHAT WITH NRA LEADERSHIP!
GRASS ROOTS ACTIVISM GETS NRA's ATTENTION!
by Black Wire Media Monday Sept. 10, 2018 www.cnjfo.com/join-us

The Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners was invited by the NRA Board of Directors to attend the NRA President's Reception last Friday evening and the Awards Ceremony during Saturday morning's NRA board meeting that were held at the Westin Hotel in Arlington, VA. Gun For Hire's Anthony Colandro won this years Activist Center Award and CNJFO VP Dave "Rosey" Rosenthal won one of two Jay M. Littlefield Memorial Awards for 2017 Volunteer of the Year. These prestigious awards are bestowed upon individuals by the NRA's Grass Roots Division for demonstrating infectious leadership and organizing rank & file NRA members to make a difference at the polls. Only six such awards are presented annually from all NRA Divisions including retail gun shops, youth shooting, membership recruitment, etc., so New Jersey took home a third of them! NRA-ILA's Christian Ragosta of their Grass Roots Division nominated Rosenthal for the award, which came as a complete surprise.

Friday evening's cocktail reception was the perfect time for our communications committee chairwoman Theresa Inacker and shows & community outreach committee chair Will Korman to speak with NRA's Wayne Lapierre, incoming President Lt. Col. Oliver North, NRA-ILA's Chris Cox, NRA board members Lt. Col. Allen West, NJ's own Scott Bach (Executive Director of our state NRA affiliate, the ANJRPC), and a multitude of other board members eagerly interested in learning first hand what it takes to be a gun owner here in NJ. Lt. Col. North (and others) were given a coalition patch by Will Korman (see photo). Our committee people were thanked by all for their courage, leadership & commitment to the 2nd Amendment.

The event also served as the perfect backdrop to formally present the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC) a $5,500.00 check representing CNJFO's promised matching funds of $2,500.00 along with the $3,000.00 donated by our members, sponsors & supporters. (See photo w/ Executive VP Colandro & Executive Director Bach accepting check on behalf of ANJRPC). Our state NRA affiliate will use these funds for the express purpose of supporting lawsuits for NJ gun owner's rights being fought by them on our behalf both statewide & nationally.

And now a note to our most important people: YOU our readership, members, friends, sponsors & supporters! We're here trying to make a difference! Isn't it time for YOU to JOIN or RENEW, buy some SWAG or simply make a tax-deductible DONATION to support your gun rights? NJ residency isn't required to help OR receive a receipt for your tax-deductible gift to CNJFO, be it a small monthly stipend or any amount you choose. What happens in Jersey doesn't STAY in NJ! How about helping us to right wrongs, to become a stronger force to be reckoned with? After first making a donation to NRA-ILA so their great ad campaign can get to more homes before the midterms, please consider visiting: www.cnjfo.com . Thanks from all of us!

SEE YOU AT NJSAFECON! Sat. 9-22! www.njsafecon.net

PLEASE SHARE THIS TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS!

The more that NJ's 2A activists are either on or in front of the NRA Board - the better for all of us as far as I'm concerned! This is good news. Thanks for sharing, Rosey. :D

We were privy to all of the new tv ads due to launch the end of this week for the mid-terms.  Potent, blunt & meaningful w/o being overly graphic.  A really great balance IMHO.  The NRA-ILA has no less than 75 seats up for grabs (being competitive), and it's going to be close.  Hope to see everyone here at NJSAFECON on Saturday Sept. 22nd!  Here's where to sign-up for tickets:  http://www.njsafecon.net .

Thanks everyone for all of the kudos!  Remember to join or renew here:  http://www.cnjfo.com/join-us .

For those that use amazon,  use amazonsmile.   You can set it up so that 0.5% of your purchase go to the "charity" of your choice.   Oh and by the way CNJFO is one of the "charities".  

Thanks for pointing this out.  I'd assumed amazon would scrub any 2A org from their charities list. I buy a fair bit of junk from amazon so it was great to be able to do this.

In case anyone else wants to use CNJFO for amazonsmile you have to spell out the entire name, the search won't find CNJFO.

You da man Rosey. 

Aww shucks!  I appreciate the kudos but just remember there's an established Executive Board & Committee Chairs & their members that do a LOT of the leg work too.  No man is an island.  I have help making the Coalition as great a success story as it is.  Saturday at NJSAFECON we have our Communications Director speaking on a Womens Shooting Discussion Panel, our President joining myself & Dan Grdovic doing some schmoozin', and our Shows & Community Outreach Committee Chair manning our booth with one of our members that almost lost all of his firearms due to a paperwork technicality.  It's a group effort to be sure!

If by chance you're in the area, stop-by and see me.  If you have other plans or are in Florida this weekend, we'll make it another time.  Thanks again for all of your continued support!

Just got back on the island a few minutes ago.  Perhaps another time. Thanks for all you do.
