NRA President’s Son Convicted For Road Rage Shooting, Nears End Of 10-Year Jail Sentence
While the NRA is blaming video games and the media for the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, an incident involving the NRA president’s son may create new controversy.
In 2002, David Michael Keene, the son of NRA president David Keene was arrested for firing a gun at a motorist while driving along the George Washington Memorial Parkway in a road rage incident. He was later convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison for “using, brandishing, and discharging a firearm in a crime of violence.”
In an interview with the New Yorker, the elder Keene said he did not feel his organization’s policy of unrestricted access to guns was counteracted by his son’s own actions.
And, apparently, the propensity towards crime runs as strong in the Keene family as membership in the ACU. In June, 2011, Keene Sr.’s ex-wife, Diana Hubbard Carr, pleaded guilty to embezzling $120,000 to $400,000 from the ACU while she served as its administrative director back in 2011. Gee, nice work if you can get it.
