    Until this weekend I thought that if Wayne LaPierre either got good advice from his lawyers to walk away with his bag of money, or the Board of Directors (BOD) did their job and told LaPierre to resign, or both, the NRA would survive. That didn’t happen. The NRA is now effectively toast. The State of New York investigation may have started as a political assassination, but now that all of LaPierre’s financial and administrative malfeasance is public knowledge, he has handed the NYAG everything they need to destroy the organization. I thought we could survive if LaPrierre and his… Read more »

    The rest of the NRA administration needs to follow North or be forced out for the good of the organization. Sadly, it won’t happen and the NRA will continue under the “leadership”, oversight and megalomania of LaPierre and his hand-picked board of gutless toadies.

    That would put the final nail in the coffin as a significant number of existing members are already holding back any further financial contributions until LaPierre and his band of over-paid cronies are removed.

    LaPierre’s been collecting 2-1/2 times the annual salary of the POS while he’s been doing nothing more than lining his cronies pockets with very NRA funds that were meant to protect our 2nd Amendment rights.

    I joined the NRA in 1962. I left the NRA in 1997. After the The loses that accumulated over those 35 years I no longer saw a need to throw my support for an organization that only cares about “money “.
    Support your local state organization.

    ALCON,

    My dues have been used to pay LaPierre, Cox and North millions of dollars each. How is THAT representative of the membership ?

    Like politicians the above scoundrels are supposed to be “servants” to the people who are the National Rifle Association itself. They are not. They are only self-serving as is every politician in state or fedgov offices.

    Good riddance to North. LaPierre and Cox should follow.

    Ever wonder why the NRA membership has
    remains at the same stagnant lever? The NSSF
    has done far more. I also read that Ollie has gotten
    a million from Ackerman McQueen as well. Seems like it’s time to “drain the swamp”.

    I dropped out of the NRA when I noticed the amount going to the pockets of the upper crust and their cronies and less actual being done for the cause and 2nd amendment protection. Then I and MANY OTHERS got completely PISSED at the nonstop hounding for money contributions. The donation calls/mail/email harassment was the final straw. If the NRA board wants to line both their and their figurehead pockets, THEY can pay for it. I have better places to invest that will actually help law abiding citizens. The NRA leaders have gone from being “WE THE PEOPLE” spokesmen to… Read more »

    Long live the NRA, where would we be without it? That said, who knows yet what the truth is. When the truth comes out many here and at the NRA HQ will likely be shown as media Demo Communist sympathizers and nematodes.

    The NRA is garbage. They’ve helped more gun control get passed than any anti-gun group ever has. They’re all for donations, not gun rights. They’ve never supported us.
    Fpc, Goa and your state pistol/rifle associations have done waaaay more with alot less funding.

    Why? He’s not for you. He’s a gun grabber, in case you didn’t know.
    Do some searching on his statement about who should have guns and which ones.

    The Cult of Wayne LaPierre must end, or it will be the death knell of the NRA. In the past I have been frequently and vocally critical of the NRA senior ‘leadership’. I’ll rejoin the NRA… IF it survives and IF they get rid of LaPierre, Cox & Powell. Should NRA not do the latter, then the former won’t be much of an issue. I would honestly like to be able to support NRA again under new and effective leadership. NRA members, if you haven’t already, raise some Cain with the BOD. They will only act in the membership’s best… Read more »

    Does anyone think it is coincidental that Oliver North resigned after POTUS withdrew the USA from the UN Small Arms Treaty madness? Anyone…….and BTW, those full color mailers, with multiple full color inserts, encouraging members to donate more and more, with a pre printed payment/donation form attached, die cut perforations and all, business reply mail, no postage needed, but put one on anyway because the pennies add up, and on and on it goes. Anyone have any idea what it costs to mail, Full Color, Over sized piece like that in the United Sates Bulk Business Mail System? How much… Read more »

    As a member of the NRA and GOA, I have full right to compliment and complain when each do good or fail their respective memberships. As such, I find the NRA position on Bump Stock and Red Flag Laws shameful and deserving of criticism. I also find the NRA as it was instrumental in achieving the District Court ruling finding the standard capacity magazine ban in CA unconstitutional deserving of compliment. GOA, like NRA, has had successes and failures – the distinction between the two is, in my opinion, the leadership of the NRA treats the organization as its personal… Read more »
