Nicole Goeser wins NRA’s Sybil Ludington Women’s Freedom Award

The National Rifle Association has selected Nicole R. Goeser of Nashville, Tennessee, to receive the 2012 Sybil Ludington Women’s Freedom Award. This award recognizes exceptional accomplishments of modern heroines through their legislative activism as well as advocacy, volunteerism, and education of others to the goals of the Second Amendment and the NRA on a national level.

Nicole “Nikki” Goeser has personally experienced the importance of advancing our Second Amendment rights. On April 2, 2009, she witnessed the brutal murder of her husband Ben at a local restaurant. Though a “right to carry” permit holder in Tennessee, state law prohibited her from bringing a handgun in the establishment. It was time for a change.

Taking on the legislative battle, Nikki was instrumental in changing Tennessee’s restrictions against carrying firearms in restaurants. Following her success, she then testified before the Ohio State House and Senate committees. A little more than a year later, Goeser was back in Ohio to witness the bill signing that put restaurant carry into effect.
