New NRA president targets Dem Rep. Lucy McBath, says gun lobby will back anyone running against her

The newly elected president of the National Rifle Association (NRA) pledges to endorse any candidate who opposes the gun-control policies of U.S. Rep. Lucy McBath, D-Ga.

Carolyn Meadows became president of the NRA after internal turmoil led to the resignation of Oliver North following accusations that he tried to pressure executive vice president Wayne LaPierre into resigning amid his criticism of the direction the NRA was taking.

But Meadows says she’s won’t dwell too much on the internal problems of the organization and is instead ready to help the group fight off Democrats supporting strict gun control.

Her first target: McBath, a 58-year-old Illinois native who won in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District in the 2018 midterm elections after running on a gun control platform after her son was fatally shot. McBath represents Atlanta’s northern suburbs, where Meadows lives.
