Richard dedicated the past twenty five years to  protecting the rights of firearms owners, marksmanship organizations, gun retailers, and  firearms makers here in America and internationally.

His access and advice to the highest government officials - from Presidents Reagan, to Clinton, to Obama - attests to his core conviction that Second Amendment Rights & Responsibilities benefit all society regardless of ideological beliefs. 

He is an attorney; a former police officer, a Reagan White House appointee; a one-time regional political director for the National Rifle Association (NRA); CEO & chief lobbyist for the Firearm Industry's national trade association; a political consultant, lecturer and author of the widely acclaimed book "RICOCHET: Confessions of a Gun Lobbyist," published by John Wiley & Sons in October 2007. 

He's sought out by the media for his comments on firearms policy in print, on radio and television with appearances on Good Morning America, the Today Show, NPR, C-Span, CNN, Fox News, and Peter Jennings' special, "The Gun Wars." Now featured in the HBO/”Barbara Koppel” documentary film “Gun Fight”.
