DELAWARE, OH — Linda Walker, of Alexandria, OH, has been elected to a position on the National Rifle Association's Board of Directors. The NRA made the public announcement in Pittsburgh at the NRA Annual Meetings on Saturday.

Walker is the Central Ohio Chair for Buckeye Firearms Association (BFA) and has been politically active for Second Amendment issues for several years. She joined the BFA leadership team in 2005 and has spent much of her time in the Ohio Statehouse working with legislators on concealed carry reform, Castle Doctrine, preemption, and other pro-gun legislation.

Over the years, Walker has become highly active with the National Rifle Association in many capacities. She is an NRA certified firearms instructor in multiple disciplines, teaching Ohio concealed carry classes, as well as serving as the Licking County Friends of the NRA chairman and the NRA-ILA's EVC (election volunteer coordinator) for the 12th Congressional District. In her capacity as EVC, she was in the top 3 EVC's in the country for 2010, qualifying her to be considered for the NRA-ILA's "Jay M. Littlefield Volunteer of the Year" award.

Because of her involvement in pro-gun issues, the NRA recognized Walker in 2009 by awarding her the "Sybil Ludington Women's Freedom Award." This prestigious award is presented to one woman per year on the national level for legislation, advocacy, and education.

"I am thrilled to start another new chapter in my fight for Second Amendment rights," said Walker. "I am very honored and humbled that the voting members have shown confidence in me by their overwhelming vote."

Buckeye Firearms Association is a grassroots political action committee (PAC) dedicated to defending and advancing the right of Ohio citizens to own and use firearms for all legal activities, including self-defense, hunting, competition, and recreation. We work to elect pro-gun candidates and lobby for pro-gun legislation.
