Dear NRA: Why Not An Independent Audit?

Dear NRA: Why Not An Independent Audit?

USA –  -(AmmoLand.com)- Dear Scott Bach,

The following is an open letter from myself, Anthony Garcia, President of Save The Second. You've probably heard of us, so I'll spare the introduction. In fact, I'm sure you have, because we sent you a survey that you didn't bother to return despite it being forwarded to you.

In reading your article posted to AmmoLand News dated 31 July 2019, I was struck that you believe what you're saying. I think you genuinely believe that what you're doing is the right side, and you're doing it for the right reasons. Just as I believe my side is the right side, and I'm doing it for the right reasons. However, it's obvious that our opinions differ greatly.

Better writers than I have opined on this topic at length, so I won't ask the same questions here that so many others have asked. You can read plenty of those articles on our Facebook page. Instead, I'm going to ask a very simple question.

Now in asking this question let us suppose that everything you wrote in your article is accurate, and again I think that you believe it is.

If everything in the article is accurate, then why would there be such pushback against anyone asking for an independent audit?

It doesn't make any sense. If you have a significant portion of your members concerned over things that aren't true, then why not prove that they're untrue? It seems that an independent and trustworthy audit could be accomplished relatively easily and swiftly, proving the entire story that this has been much ado about nothing. Furthermore, that seems to be the best option as it would surely be far cheaper than the millions and millions that have now been withheld by donors.

This question is, to me, the one that should be answered.

Like you, I want a strong NRA. I want an NRA that is able to fight back against those who would seek to strip the second amendment. I want more than anything to believe your article. But the fact of the matter is that I won't, and neither will a significant portion of the membership that grows daily, until it's proven to be fact. Why not simply prove it?

That is the way to get what we both want if in fact, everything in your article is accurate. Prove the allegations are false and reunite the membership. Start the flow of donations again. Revitalize the NRA and turn it back into a powerhouse. This is where it starts; where the healing starts.

I look forward to your response, publicly or privately.

Very Respectfully,
Anthony A. Garcia
President
Save The Second

I’m also for an independent audit but practically speaking, Buster is correct that that time has passed. A full audit would have multiple phases, a complete review of the design of controls, operating effectiveness of the controls, forensic audits, etc. I’ve been through these in a large organization and they are all consuming and, let’s be honest, not even pro Wayne Directors are denying there are plenty of items to find (they just feel they already have a handle on them). With a fight on going with 3 organizations with subpoena power and multiple lawsuits, each having a discovery process,… Read more »

The NRA can either clean its own house or it will be done by others. The latter will likely involve more fines for many Board members and officers and handcuffs for a few. It’s their choice. The latter has also a higher chance of the NRA getting disbanded. Again, it’s their choice. Just don’t ask us NRA members to support the latter or support the organization while there is no house cleaning. Good luck with your endeavors. This NRA Endowment Life member thinks the NRA is done.

@StuckInNY “you made your bed now lay in it…” Yup…and perhaps that’s what Wayne has planned for himself? I envision the looming (governmental) audits to be styled after the Mueller fiasco – open ended, well funded, agenda driven, tediously long and drawn out, and deliberately made expensive for the NRA. Wayne, of course, will continue to draw his salary through it all. Whether Wayne is on the NRA payroll or not, he’s going to be required to face the auditors. Most people in his position would be thinking “I’ve likely lost my parachute, so if I have to endure these… Read more »

NRA Discussed Purchasing Luxury Mansion For Wayne LaPierre
August 6, 2019

“The IRS could revoke the NRA’s tax-exempt status on the grounds of “inurement,” meaning the organization’s leadership is treating its assets as private property. The activity ‘says something about how the organization is being run and for whose benefit’. These things are fundamental to nonprofit organizations.”

Reading this article turned my stomach. Folks on here have been talking about Wayne going to prison and I thought that was just talk, though he may really go to prison. You all remember Jim and Tammy Faye? Jim Bakker served 5 years for something like this. Wayne thinking he should be provided with a $6mm home, paid for by NRA members, so he can be safe, is outrageous. That’s right up there with Hillary or Bloomberg telling the rest of us that we can’t protect ourselves as they are surrounded by armed guards. No saving the NRA at this… Read more »

On it’s face, it’s another screaming-point for the Wayne-haters. But we don’t know any of the details, we don’t have access to the board meeting minutes when the subject was presented. We know very little.

Discussing an idea and actually implementing the idea are two different things – and kudos to the BOD for rejecting the idea. But common sense and reason escapes the lynch mob – this is just more innuendo to support their cause.

“Evidence??? We don’t need no stinking evidence…GET THE ROPE!”

@Buster, You either haven’t read the article or are purposefully misrepresenting it. Which is it?

The Board was NOT AT ALL involved in any of this. Wayne LaPierre discussed buying a house with NRA members money with Ackerman McQueen. And, yes, discussing doing something illegal vs. doing it is different. It still stinks!

Still haven’t asked my previous question: https://www.ammoland.com/2019/08/dear-nra-why-not-an-independent-audit/comment-page-1/#comment-2771356

It appears you repeatedly engage in doublespeak in discussions on AmmoLand for the purpose of protecting Wayne LaPierre.

@ Charlie Foxtrot I read two or three articles – I didn’t see A-M mentioned anywhere. So tell us exactly what the discussion entailed? Who was the seller? Did A-M bring the idea to Wayne? If so, what did Wayne tell them? Could it be Wayne told them it would be illegal/improper? If he did tell A-M it would be illegal, would that constitute the reported “discussion”? Here’s a thought: perhaps Wayne knew it was illegal, which is why it never got presented to the board? I didn’t see any of these questions answered in any of the articles I… Read more »

So, you did not read the Washington Post article cited above to which you replied to then? It mentions Ackerman McQueen right there! Also, this entire scandal was revealed as part of the Ackerman McQueen vs. NRA lawsuit, which is also mentioned right there. Wayne approached Ackerman McQueen, which is also mentioned right there. If Wayne didn’t know what he was asking Ackerman McQueen was highly illegal, then he is just highly incompetent. If he knew it was illegal, why did he asked Ackerman McQueen in the first place? How about you read that article and then come back with… Read more »

@ Charlie Foxtrot

No, I didn’t read the washington post – I can’t access their articles without signing up or joining or some such.

Screaming for hard evidence does not automatically put me in defense of Wayne or status quo – it puts me on the side of common sense and reason and skepticism. Fake news is alive and well here on ammoland.

Yes, at this point screaming for hard evidence does automatically put you in defense of Wayne and the status quo, since you are parroting their nonsensical argument about the need for NRA members to prove that they are corrupt. As I said, the NRA leadership has to prove to the NRA members that they aren’t. As for your fake news argument, the NRA has never said that the leaked documents about the NRA’s corruption are fake. In fact, The NRA said the opposite. They said that they were internal communication that were leaked to damage the NRA. I pointed you… Read more »

The question that will affect whether or not the NRA lives or dies is dependent on the members and follows as such.

Will those actually interested in reform actually have the ability in the membership, or will those who are seeking to defend and maintain the Status quo keep reform from happening?

With that in mind, be careful that you are not lured in by Buster, his actions highlight which side he has been on and show his words to be hollow.

Be vigilant.

An independent audit would consume a boatload of people’s time and energy and would likely churn up a lot of things that might affect the lawsuit(s) and their outcome(s). And a lot of what gets churned up will be tiny things in terms of dollars and will have little bearing on anything other than to fuel anti-NRA rhetoric. (With an audit at this point) I see the possibility of NRA-paid independent auditors testifying against NRA over trivial things – spending thousands of dollars examining pennies. Few things would please the anti-NRA crowd more. I’m all for an audit, but this… Read more »

Buster, Your comments make no sense whatever, unless you don’t support the 2nd. Best option: remove Wayne and toadies now, which isn’t going to happen. Next best, independent audit. Independent auditors using solid methodology don’t make minor accusations. The audit records and spending compared to laws and best practices. An independent audit would discover and give new leadership a chance to correct things before the NY AG gets in there.

My opinion that an independent audit will not occur due to concern about legitimate findings.

Hence, why he was defending Wayne and his misuse of finances…. Errrr, sorry, lets use his new terms for that… “Tiny things” and “pennies”…..

He makes a habit out of defending and deflecting, trying to legitimize the wrong that has been done under the current leadership. Each time he tries to downplay the corruption. Its not the Second Amendment that Buster is worried about. At this point he is just shilling for the NRA as a PR cover man.

Buster, there will be independent audits of the NRA’s finances by the NY State AG, the DC AG and the IRS anyway. NRA members have been asking for the NRA Board to preemptively have an independent audit of the NRA’s finances to prepare fall-out of the investigation and to preemptively take actions, such as firing those responsible for malfeasance, to save the organization. It appears it is too late for that now. The NY State AG had already subpoenaed the finances of the NRA and all of its organizations. Now, the NY State AG has subpoenaed the finances of 90… Read more »

You may be right. But with three audits on the agenda, I wouldn’t waste time or money with a fourth. Let Wayne oversee the audits – he’s the one who presided over any mis-deeds. I certainly wouldn’t want to be a new NRA Executive Director and have to try to explain to the government why Wayne did what he did.

I say save the money to contest any of the gov’s incorrect findings.

Buster, as usual, you simply do not want to get it as you have your own personal agenda of protecting the current NRA as it is. Read my previous comment about how blind you are and how people like you are responsible for the end of the NRA. The idea of an NRA-driven independent financial audit is to shield the NRA organization from the other audits down the road by knowing what the problem is and by taking preemptive action. The only defense here is offense!!! Have an independent financial audit and hold those responsible for malfeasance accountable to keep… Read more »

@Buster, $200 million have been apparently illegally transferred from the NRA Foundation to the NRA. This was originally reported in May, if I remember correctly.

Charlie Foxtrot

@Buster, “Let Wayne oversee the audits” isn’t “pro-Wayne resigning immediately” at all. It means that you want to keep Wayne LaPierre in office. You have contradicted yourself. So, which is it? Should Wayne LaPierre resign immediately, or should he stay in office and oversee the audits (whatever that even means, because you don’t want internal audits)?

@Charlie Foxtrot No matter how much he says it, Buster is most definitely not Pro 2A if you look at his actions. 1. Consider his defense of Lapierre over the last week, a man who has betrayed the membership of the NRA time and time again and helped implement several infringements against the Second Amendment. 2. His defense of the Board, and as he noted earlier farther down in the comments on this page, his deferral to Scott Bach in agreement with the article he wrote praising Wayne Lapierre. 3.

@Buster The NRA has a history of supporting Gun control Measures. Bump Stocks and Red Flag laws are only the newest renditions. In the 90’s, with Wayne as Executive Director at the time, the NRA got behind Gun Free zones, namely schools. Any organization that gets behind any Gun Control/infringement initiative is by definition NOT pro 2A. They may have guns as a basis of thought, or certain parts they agree with, but if they don’t support and defend the Second Amendment as written, they are not Pro 2A. Yet another pitiful attempt from the liar to defend the indefensible.

Still have that bridge in Brooklyn for sale if anyone wants it, I’m selling it cheap… And finally, his final sentence replying to buster.

This sounds like it has support from the New York AG’s office. When the NRA is in court with Super Mario and his friends what makes this little group think it can demand an organization, of which it does not have standing, prove its innocence?

How dare NRA members demand an independent financial audit of their organization, knowing that money was misspent and laundered by the NRA leadership.

The NRA insiders will NEVER accept a call for an independent audit. They reject the notion for the very reasons everyone fears: there are a ton of dirty deeds done and still going on that have to be hidden at all costs, lest the empreror found to be naked.

In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if the top execs at NRA decided to have an all-night document-shredding party some Saturday evening!! What they have done will get them thrown in jail and the NRA dissolved by court order.
