Gun-Totin’ Granny Heads Nra
The National Rifle Association has its first female president, a grandmother who’s a vociferous advocate of gun rights.
Marion P. Hammer of Tallahassee succeeds Thomas L. Washington of Lansing, Mich., who died Tuesday after suffering a heart attack last month while deer hunting. He was elected last May to a second term as NRA president.
Hammer, the executive director of Unified Sportsmen of Florida, a gun-lobbying group in Tallahassee, will guide a national organization with 3.5 million members.
