Sybil Ludington Women’s Freedom Award recognizes modern day heroines and their legislative work to protect the 2nd Amendment
Fairfax, Virginia - If you don't know the name Nicole Goeser, well, you should. Think again. Maybe you know her by the name of Nikki. In either case, you will know her now as the winner of NRA's 2012 Sybil Ludington Women’s Freedom Award.
On April 2, 2009, Nikki was working with her husband Ben in a Tennessee restaurant. It was a family karaoke business. During the night's shift, Ben was shot and killed by a man who had been stalking Nikki. She was there.
Though a conceal carry permit holder, Tennessee law did not allow Nikki to carry inside a bar or restaurant. She decided to change that.
After countless weeks and months of meeting with lawmakers and testifying before committees, Nikki was able to help change that law in Tennessee.
"She lives what she believes," said NRA Women's Programs Coordinator Diane Danielson. "As a strong and fervent advocate for gun rights, Nikki has demonstrated her dedication through her actions."
