Greg Quinn Named 2006 Republican of the Year
by Boge Quinn
Greg Quinn, one of the Gunblast.com founding brothers, and head of the business development side of Gunblast.com, the leading online gun test magazine, has again been awarded with very distinctive recognition for his political work behind the scenes to keep America a conservative nation, and our freedoms as gun-owners valued.
Greg is the 2006 recipient of Republican of the Year. This honor comes from the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), and is a very significant accomplishment. Greg chairs a committee on small business tax reform for the Business Advisory Counsel of the NRCC. Coming on the heels of his receipt as Tennessee Businessman of the Year in 2004, and the Ronald Reagan Republican Gold Medal in 2005, Greg has been again honored for his contributions to the Republican party and our conservative values. Greg received recognition as a Platinum Board Member of a Republican decision-making committee at a dinner with President Bush earlier this year. With this Republican of the Year award, Greg is also selected as a finalist for the Congressional Medal of Distinction, the highest award given by the NRCC.
We are very proud of our older brother for his political and business accomplishments, and wanted to share this with the readers of Gunblast.com as well. We know you join us in our applause of Greg for this honorable distinction.

WASHINGTON, DC – The National Republican Congressional Committee’s Business Advisory Council announced today that Greg Quinn of Clarksville is a 2006 Republican of the Year from Tennessee.
NRCC Chairman Tom Reynolds explained that the award is given to a select group of business and community leaders from each state who have championed the free enterprise system and supported the ideals of smaller government, lower taxes and less regulation. Congressman Reynolds commented “I am extremely grateful for the tremendous support that Greg has shown for our Party, especially in this critical election year.”
The Business Advisory Council is a special project of the NRCC in which small businessmen and women work with Republican leaders in Washington to help shape the Party’s agenda and also provide financial support for conservative candidates to the House of Representatives.
The Republican of the Year award also qualifies Mr. Quinn for the Business Advisory Council’s Congressional Medal of Distinction – to be awarded later this fall.
