NRA 2016 Recall Question Is An Attack on the Whole of the NRA Organization

USA –  -( Regarding the upcoming question to unseat Grover Norquist from the NRA board, after his majority approval by voting NRA members to the board, less than year ago.

Here is what everyone is missing and what Todd Rathner was try to get at in his recent OP-ED’s.

This is not a yes or no vote for Norquist to be on the board, this recall question is an attack on the organization and structure of your NRA board.

This is a recall question that has been forced upon the NRA membership by a few anti NRA people who have found a loop hole in the NRA member bylaws.

They are using it to create an issue where none should be and cause fighting among NRA members.

The recall was initiated by a super minority of 450 petitioners out of 5,000,000 NRA members. I repeat, that is 450 individuals vs 5 million!

That is called tyranny of the minority.

This minority, taking advantage of a NRA bylaw loophole, has thrown the stable process of orderly elections into disorder, no large organization can effectively function if the board members and the organization is having to deal with random recalls or chaotic changes in board members. All initiated just because a super minority of members has a grudge against a newly elected board member.

To put it in terms you can understand, say your guy, who you love, was just voted onto the NRA board.

Well I don’t like him, so all I need are 450 of my Facebook friends, who meet the qualifying NRA voting guidelines, and I can have a recall order thrown against him and force him into resigning his board seat until after the next member vote. It is chaos and that is exactly what is going on with this question on the ballot.

If the antis are successful with this effort we will see this used, again and again, to disrupt the entire board operation. And anyone shouting yes to the recall is only helping their cause of harming the entire NRA organization.

Grover Norquist

If you don’t like Norquist you can just vote him out when his board term comes up. But if he is voted out through this end run, the antis will have a field day touting how the NRA is corrupt and it will become a tactic for them to target and impugn other NRA board members.

If you hate Norquist, vote him out next time he is up for election, not this way. Anyone insisting on this recall vote is clueless or worse, not on the side of gun rights and the 2A

The correct way to add or remove board members, that you may or may not like, is by regular board member elections. Every board member comes up for re-election every three years.

This whole thing seems like a ploy to discredit the NRA and it’s board of directors. I am very suspicious of people who seem to have an answer to everything and go on and on attempting to make a case but actually are just going in circles. I’m voting NO. Vote him out in 2.5 years if you don’t like his performance. The information being used against Norquist reads like a conspiracy theorists wet dream. Do the accusers even know the man is married to a Palestinian muslim? Do ya think that might be the reason he has ties to… Read more »



Just kidding. Ran out of time. Was going to elaborate on one of my posts I’m the other Norquist articles of the last few days.


The Gottlieb-Law-Rathner tag team are just repeatedly regurgitating their sneaky, weak, deceptive, evasive, smokescreen propaganda talking points. The Norquist cabal will say anything to divert attention from the real issues, mainly Norquist’s collaboration with Bloomberg to advance Bloomberg’s long game of gun confiscation by way of immigration coup d’etat. Note that a lot of their arguments are arguments against allowing recalls at all, essentially warmed over sophistry used by any number of scumbag legislators to fight recalls. This clique will do anything to protect their deals with Norquist at the expense of RKBA and America. Since they’re regurgitating pablum, I’ll… Read more »


“…this recall question is an attack on the organization and structure of your NRA board.” NRA is not run by the board, it’s controlled by staff career bureaucrats who gain job security by passing garbage bills. Look at what NRA lobbyist for Illinois Todd Vandermyde did in Rep. Brandon Phelps “NRA backed” HB183 carry bill in 2013: criminal penalties or 6 MONTHS or 1 YEAR in jail for hundreds of gun-free zones, an unelected Star Chamber review board where any cop in Illinois can object to your app., an unlimited privacy waiver, and Duty to Inform, so police criminals can… Read more »

This Life Member will be voting to flush Norquist, just as he so richly deserves .

As to the title of the article…well, yeah, the recall SHOULD be viewed as an attack on the organization’s quislings and dupes and on the orgs long sordid history of supporting all manner of govt gun-control, in direct opposition to Amendment II’s prohibition on doing just that.

‘Staunch Defenders’ my hairy arse.

Facts are damn pesky things…just as is the Constitution and the clear text of Amendment II is to the NRA and its open-secret bestest chum, the govt.


Norquist has to go now ! There’s no better time than the present to get him out of the NRA ! Time is definitely of the essence on this ! There is no reason to wait until the next election ! The NRA better press the issue on this too or they will lose tons of members,myself included !
