New York ~ -(Ammoland.com)- The NY Attorney General has subpoenaed the files on the arbitration between NRA and Chris Cox, the purged head of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA).

That was a proceeding on which NRA has spent $8 million in legal fees to fight over $2 million owed.

The files are probably enormous. NRA objected for a bunch of reasons and lost but lost in the NY Courts. Here’s the transcript of the hearing, (embedded below) with the judge’s ruling starting on page 36. He orders the documents turned over, with redaction of donors’ names, if they are mentioned, but nothing else.

The Judge rejects the argument that he ought to require turning over the pleadings in the case, but not anything else:

“You know, if there had been objections saying, “Look, this is our first objection, that you can’t have any of it; our second one is, is that these 400 documents have” — you know — “there are these reasons why we’re not going to — we shouldn’t have to — produce them …” But that hasn’t been done. That’s not in front of me. I’m not going to remand it for you guys to start that all over again. This has taken too long as it is.”

He expects the first documents to be turned over “this week” and the entirety of them by the end of January 2022.

One more loss for Team LaPierre, but not their lawyer who is still billing the NRA membership for his “expert counseling”.

Opinion:

The reason for purging Chris Cox was that he’d received a text saying that LaPierre was being asked to resign over the scandals, and Cox replied it was a damn tragedy or words like that. He doesn’t say it’s good, not by any means. It’s something you might say if a friend was caught in a scandal. [unsubstaniated rumors were that phones were tapped]

That’s not much of a reason to purge the fellow who’d led the entire political branch of NRA for around 20 years! So why?

The board always thinks of the head of ILA as the logical successor to the EVP. That’s how LaPierre got the EVP job, after all, he went from head of ILA to EVP.

Might the real reason for Cox’s purge be to eliminate the man the board would think of as LaPierre’s successor so that any directors thinking of asking LaPierre to step down would have to worry that there was no replacement at hand?

LaPierre has never made anyone his deputy, so there’s no one to step into his shoes if something happens. That may not be a coincidence.

About NRA in Danger

We are a group of NRA members, all life or above, who are concerned about where our organization is being taken. In 2019, the 150-year-old NRA, the oldest civil rights organization in the country, was rocked by scandals, financial and others. The members deserve the truth, and we will do our imperfect best to give it to them.

WI I give up, as a life member of the NRA I will not donate anymore.
I am 79 and in very poor health with terminal lung disease.
It’s a shame that the NRA may very well die before I die

Through their own improprieties they have delivered themselves into the hands of their enemies.

The gun club I belong to has disaffiliated itself from the NRA. There are several reasons, but notably, renewals of NRA memberships through the club are supposed to result in the club getting a commission. According to our treasurer, the commission checks from the NRA have been bouncing, costing the club bank fees.

I think many of us would re-join the NRA if LeParrie was gone! They send me a renewal and I write “get rid of LeParrie”!!! He stole from us and he’ll do it again! I will always be a GOA member!! No compromise!!!! I like that.

Yeah, I’d give the NRA a chance again, too, if LaPierre were gone, the rules that kept him in power were gone, and the organization started doing Second Amendment defense work again.

I will renew my NRA membership when the Board of Directors decides to listen to demands for LaPierre’s ouster. IIRC, LaPierre has admitted to ‘not being a gun owner’. How can one fight for something they don’t believe in?

I wonder how many of LaPierre’s disingenuous toadies make up the, “NRA in Danger” herd?

Had the leadership of NRA taken the threat seriously, thirty years ago, of being incorporated in New York state we would not be having these problems.

No Author , Sure smells like hutchinson to me.

Doesn’t smell like STRIKE GROUP REAGAN(!) to me, except they want to save NRA, a foolish goal I’m done donating to. NRA in Danger constantly trashes hell out of corrupt Brewer, LaPew, Hammer, their corrupt rubber-stamp board et ilk, which Harold Pouty Mouth never does.

Just bury the NRA already!! The corpse has been rotting for years!
The sooner we do this, the sooner we can move on.

Which is exactly why it has already dragged on and on for years, and with no end in sight. The antis, and also the NRA, profit greatly from the current system, and all of them want it to continue forever.

Can’t wait for this controlled opposition fake gun rights organization to fail.

What branch of the Socialist Democrat party wrote this? It’s reminiscent of the false flag operations run by DOJ. The greater the attack the more obvious that stories like this are meant to pick the emotional scabs off of anyone who assumes life would be better if successful people fail.

Wild Bill

It is kind of unusual that there is no author named.

How much of our money does LaPierre pay Brewer to pay you?
