The NRA has just appointed a kick ass new director, martial artist and actor, Steven Seagal.

The Above The Law star and animal activist is also known for his friendship with Vladimir Putin. Seagal once referred to Putin as “one of the great living world leaders”.

“All my life I’ve had a profound appreciation for the freedoms that America offers.
That includes the right to keep and bear arms,” Seagal wrote in an introductory message to the organization. “I have a unique perspective on this, given my experience with Eastern cultures and my law enforcement experience. I respect the fact that the Founders of this country strongly believed in, and many people over the years have died for, our freedoms. I’ve risked my own life countless times deploying for these principals. And that includes the freedom to choose to own a firearm to defend yourself or your family.” h/t bearingarms

Seagal, the self-proclaimed “toughest sheriff in America,” teamed up with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for the show that was shot in Arizona and airs on cable TV’s Reelz Channel.

The California Pistol and Rifle Association (CPRA) is one of the largest state affiliates of the NRA.
