Retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, infamous for his involvement in the Iran-Contra scandal in the 1980s, will be the next president of the National Rifle Association, the organization says in a statement.

On Monday morning, former NRA President Pete Brownell — chief executive of the firearm accessories company Brownells — announced that he was not seeking re-election, in order to spend more time with his family, the NRA says.
The board of directors promptly moved to replace him with North.
“This is the most exciting news for our members since Charlton Heston became President of our Association,” NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre said in the statement. “Oliver North is a legendary warrior for American freedom, a gifted communicator and skilled leader. In these times, I can think of no one better suited to serve as our President.”
