Mr. Caroline talked about grassroots lobbying, focusing on how the National Rifle Association recruits, mobilizes, trains, educates, and empowers members for involvement in legislative and political activism. He divided grassroots activities into legislative and political categories, defining legislative lobbying as actions designed to influence legislation and political lobbying as actions designed to influence elections. In describing grassroots lobbying, Mr. Caroline employed the analogy of the need to "hunt where the ducks are", meaning that efforts and resources are focused in areas where they are most likely to be effective. Following prepared remarks, he responded to questions from the audience. close
