Curtis Jenkins

Curtis Jenkins likes to joke that his early dedication to
the Second Amendment battle and subsequent interest
in serving on the nra Board of Directors resulted from
having been born on "Bill of Rights Day," Dec. 15.
Growing up shooting and hunting with his father,
brothers and cousins, he became an nra Junior
member at age 13 and a Life member four years later.
In college, Jenkins began speaking for gun owners' rights before state legislative
committees. After earning degrees at Georgia Tech and Mercer University's law school,
his interest in politics continued and he was soon elected to the Georgia legislature.
Jenkins authored the nation's first law prohibiting frivolous lawsuits against firearm
manufacturers, versions of which were afterwards adopted by 33 states and Congress,
with the federal version, the "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act", being
signed by President Bush in 2005. At that time, cities around the country were filing
lawsuits against firearm manufacturers seeking to bankrupt them.
A third term nra Board member, Curtis serves on the Legislative Policy, Legal
Affairs (Vice Chair), Hearings (Chair) and Finance committees and the nra Civil

Friends of NRA Announces
Daniel Defense As Corporate Sponsor

T

he National Rifle Association is proud to announce Daniel Defense as the
Exclusive Guardian Corporate Sponsor of Friends of nra, a grassroots fundraising
program that fosters community involvement to organize and plan community events
for firearm enthusiasts. Created in 2011, the National Corporate Sponsor program
takes Friends of nra's support of the shooting sports to a national scale.
Jordan Hunter, Daniel Defense director of marketing, said, "nra does such a great
job supporting our industry, so we want to do anything and everything we can
to support it. We're always looking for creative ways to do that, and Friends of nra 
has been really great about providing those opportunities."
All net proceeds from Friends of nra events are allocated to The nra Foundation,
the leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports. Foundation grants
provide equipment, training materials, range improvements and more to qualified
local, state and national programs.
"We are grateful to have such generous support from Daniel Defense, a leader
in support of the firearms community," said Director of Volunteer Fundraising
Sarah Engeset. "Their commitment as Friends of nra [Exclusive] Guardian Sponsor
has helped raise funds for The nra Foundation and shooting sports programs across
the country."

Rights Defense Fund. "We have made
significant progress in recent years, with
crucial victories in Congress and the
courts, including Heller, but we cannot
afford to let up," Jenkins emphasized.
A Benefactor member, Jenkins is a nra
referral attorney and a certified shooting
instructor. He is also a member of nra
affiliates in several states and of the Board
of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia.
Jenkins practices law in Forsyth, Ga.,
where he was born and still resides with
his wife, Carol, and their two children.
Over the years, Jenkins helped facilitate
young shooter training through Boy
Scouts and family "field days" sponsored
by the Monroe County Sportsman's
Federation. However, he points out
that "without a strong nra protecting
our Second Amendment rights, future
generations' freedoms stand to be
jeopardized, so every gun owner should
be an nra member."
