Biography

John Frazer is Secretary of the National Rifle Association of America. He also serves as the NRA's General Counsel.

Frazer was born and raised in New York City, where he saw the ineffectiveness of strict firearms controls first-hand. He received his bachelor's degree in government and history from Bowdoin College (Brunswick, Maine) and a master's degree from the University of Virginia (Charlottesville, Va.), where he was also a teaching assistant in American government and political theory.

Frazer joined the NRA Institute for Legislative Action's Research and Information Division in 1993. In 1994, he became the executive assistant to NRA-ILA's Executive Director, and in 1997 moved to NRA-ILA's Federal Affairs division, where for seven years he was a lobbyist responsible for relations between the NRA and House and Senate delegations from several states. In 2005 he returned to the Research and Information staff as deputy director, and became director in 2007. In that capacity, he was responsible for developing and reviewing materials for the NRA's work in advocating for the Second Amendment rights of Americans, ranging from magazine and online articles, to fact sheets and policy papers for use by NRA lobbyists, to legal briefs.

Frazer attended the George Mason University School of Law (Arlington, Va.) at night while working for NRA-ILA. In 2008, he received his law degree and was admitted to the Virginia bar. In 2013, he left the NRA to start his own law practice in Fairfax, Va., where he continued to advise and represent the NRA as well as a private clientele of gun owners, dealers, manufacturers, and importers. He has taught at several continuing legal education seminars on firearms law. He is also admitted to practice in the District of Columbia and in various federal courts.

In January 2015, Frazer returned to the NRA as General Counsel, and in April 2015, the NRA Board of Directors elected him Secretary. In that role, he is responsible for administering and overseeing operations related to the NRA's board elections, board meetings, and the Annual Meeting of Members, among other duties.

Frazer is an NRA Benefactor Member and has shot competitively with pistols, rifles, and shotguns. He is also a hunter, handloader, and amateur gunsmith.
