Second Amendment Sisters - NH, Leadership Change

SAS-NH Leadership Change

Change is inevitable and welcomed here in New Hampshire, like our coming spring. Kate Muller, who since September 2008 has been a very effective State Coordinator for the Second Amendment Sisters has decided to focus her efforts on her new town of Goffstown and be supportive to the rest of the area coordinators. According to Kate “It's been my pleasure to serve as SAS-NH State Coordinator. It has been an amazing five years learning, teaching, and making dear friends with the women of SAS. Now that my dear friend Margot is taking over as State Coordinator I can focus on my first love, training more women to safely handle and shoot firearms. I am looking forward to lots range time with SAS.”

Effective immediately, Margot Keyes has assumed the position of State Coordinator for New Hampshire. In her whirlwind three years with SAS, Margot has gone from Member, to Epsom Area Coordinator, to NRA Basic Pistol Instructor and the Registration Coordinator for all of the NH ladies’ shoots, to now becoming the State Coordinator. She has been heavily involved in the ladies’ monthly shoots and basic pistol instruction, while at times also attending gun shows and presenting testimony to our House and Senate on behalf of SAS.

Margot welcomes this challenge saying, “We are constantly growing our membership and especially our leadership lately. I brought three new area coordinators to SAS just this month and their help has been invaluable. I would not take on this responsibility without knowing my fellow coordinators and sisters are here to support me. We have many sisters who are involved in various ways, so there is always someone to help keep our right to bear arms alive. I am looking forward to continuing to keep New Hampshire a well-organized, member-appreciative, and 2A-active state.”

Here are Margot and Kate, friends for over 10 years, teaching at a local pistol club.
