Apology Issued in “NRA Instructor” Cap Voting Flap

posted on July 17, 2015

A Georgia NRA-certified instructor, who we reported last week had dropped his lawsuit against the Douglas County Election Board after they changed a policy concerning removal of his “NRA Instructor” cap to vote, has received an apology for the mishap.

Last October, Bundy Cobb went to vote wearing the instructor cap. But Douglas County Election officials told Cobb he had to remove the hat.

Last month, the election board approved a new policy that won’t discriminate against Cobb or his hat next election day. Now, Fox News Atlanta reports the election board also issued Cobb an apology: “... I would like to apologize for the incident that occurred when you voted on October 24, 2014, when a poll worker asked you to remove your NRA Instructor hat. You should not have been asked to remove your NRA Instructor hat, and I am sorry you were asked to do so.”
