LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Actor Tom Selleck has abruptly stepped down from the National Rifle Association’s board of directors.
The star of TV’s “Blue Bloods” and “Magnum, P.I.” remains a member of the gun rights group, but is leaving the board due to his work schedule, according to his publicist.
Selleck, who first joined the NRA when he was 8 years old, has been a member of the board since 2005.
He was reelected to his fifth three-year term last year.
Other prominent NRA board members include rocker Ted Nugent, conservative pundit Lt. Col. Oliver North, and NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone.
