This job has been given to me to do. Therefore, it is a gift. Therefore, it is a privilege. Therefore, it is an offering I may make to God. Therefore, it is to be done gladly, if it is done for Him. Here, not somewhere else, I may learn God’s way. In this job, not in some other, God looks for faithfulness.
— Elisabeth Elliot

National Rifle Association
2015 - 2019

In 2015 Timothy bucked the odds again and became the first non-celebrity petition-only candidate to gain a seat on the NRA Board of Directors in years. He was double nominated and reelected to a second term in 2018 and had planned to serve members until at least 2021. See his pledge to members which he kept during his tenure as a Director. His grassroots connection with NRA members and willingness to work with others to succeed was the hallmark of his service as a Director.

He proudly agreed to serve as board members of the NRA because of his steadfast belief in the Association’s core mission of protecting the Second Amendment and its leadership’s commitment to serving its members with honesty, integrity and transparency. While his belief in the NRA’s mission remains as strong today as ever, his confidence in the NRA’s leadership has been shattered.  

As Board members, he was duty bound to act with care and in the best interests of the NRA and its mission. Proper discharge of that duty compelled him and others to to speak up and take action when we become aware of matters within the Association that run counter to its mission, governing principles, policies, or the law.  Over the past several months, there have been numerous, highly-publicized allegations of impropriety leveled against the Association and certain members of its executive leadership team.  In exercising our oversight responsibilities as Board Members, he along with other Directors have sought information and requested certain actions be taken with respect to these allegations, only to be rebuffed at every turn. They had expected – or at least hoped— that the executive leadership team would recognize the seriousness of these allegations and work with us in a constructive and transparent manner to address our concerns and minimize any further harm to the Association. Instead, they were stonewalled, accused of disloyalty, stripped of committee assignments and denied effective counsel necessary to properly discharge our responsibilities as Board members.

As a result of the foregoing, Timothy Knight, Esther Schneider & Sean Maloney were left with no other choice but to resign as members of the Board of Directors. In doing so, however, they hoped that their action would serve as a catalyst for much needed reform within the NRA so that it can return its focus to the mission which they remain unwaveringly committed -- protecting the Constitution of the United States and especially, the Second Amendment.

Grassroots Example
2013 - Onward

In 2013 Timothy Knight stunned the political world by leading a small group of political novices in beating two of the world’s most powerful political machines in two recall elections in one day. Both the Clinton and Obama ground campaigns, funded by two billionaires, could not save the President of the Colorado Senate and a fellow Senator from being recalled. Tim has not stopped his grassroots connection with citizens across the Republic since.
