The National Rifle Association announced yesterday that conservative talk-show host and author Dana Loesch has been hired to serve as a Special Advisor on Women’s Policy for National Rifle Association Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre, and to be a national spokesperson for the NRA.
“Dana is a talented and influential leader and communicator,” LaPierre said in a press release. “In her role as an NRA Commentator, as well as leading the fight for freedom for more than a decade, she has become a leading voice for Second Amendment freedom and a tremendous advocate for the rights of American women. Expanding her role as an advisor on women’s issues, and particularly as a national spokesperson for the 5 million men and women of the NRA, strengthens our organization and our voice.”
Loesch, who wrote a book in 2014 titled Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America, is an experienced shooter. She said that she is ready and eager to defend gun rights. “I applaud Wayne LaPierre for his vision to bring greater advocacy to bear for the Second Amendment freedom of all Americans, especially women,” Loesch said, adding, “and I look forward to facing the national news media and defending our freedom with great enthusiasm.”
LaPierre said that the move was made to address the fact that “more women than ever before are joining the NRA,” and that Loesch provides a strong voice to defend the rights of these women and all of America’s gun owners.
Loesch is a staunch supporter of gun rights, as anyone who has seen her on TV or heard her on the radio can attest to. She will bring a much-needed female perspective to the NRA going forward.
