The National Rifle Association's Defender of Freedom Award

The National Rifle Association's Defender of Freedom Award

The National Rifle Association's Defender of Freedom Award Phil Monkress has served as CEO of All Points Logistics LLC since 2009, before which he held the position of COO for 10 years. In addition to his career, Phil Monkress is active in a number of organizations, including the National Rifle Association.

The National Rifle Association's Defender of Freedom Award The National Rifle Association (NRA) was created 150 years ago by several Union veterans of the Civil War, who felt disheartened by the lack of skills shown by their troops during the fighting. Today the organization promotes marksmanship, gun training, and firearms education. With nearly 4 million members, the NRA is also widely known as a major advocate for and protector of Second Amendment rights.

The National Rifle Association's Defender of Freedom Award Individuals who similarly advocate for the Second Amendment right to bear arms receive a Defender of Freedom Award from the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action, the lobbying arm of the NRA, which was established in 1975. In October 2013, Texas State Senator Glen Hegar was recognized for his outstanding legislative accomplishments in defense of the Second Amendment and was honored with a Defender of Freedom Award. Senator Hegar helped pass legislation in 2011 that allows Texans to transport and store firearms in a locked vehicle during the work day. In 2013, he worked to extend that law to allow students with concealed handgun licenses to carry weapons on the campuses of public and private universities.
