"Jim Porter elected as NRA president, replacing David Keene"

Alabama attorney Jim Porter will be the new president of the National Rifle Association, CNN confirmed Wednesday.

Porter is set to take over for outgoing president David Keene on Monday, when his two-year term expires. The leadership change coincides with the NRA's annual meeting, which kicks off Thursday in Houston, Texas.

"At this stage in the NRA's history, Jim Porter will be the perfect match for president," Keene told the Washington Times' Emily Miller, who first reported the news. "As we are likely to win most of the legislative battles in Congress, we will have to move to courts to undo the restrictions placed on gun owners’ rights in New York, Connecticut, Maryland and Colorado."
