Why It Is Time For LaPierre To Leave the NRA

Why It Is Time For LaPierre To Leave the NRA (Dave Workman)

Fairfax, Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- Wayne LaPierre has devoted a long time to the defense of the Second Amendment. While loyal Ammoland readers can disagree with his tactics, one cannot dispute the fact that the Second Amendment is on much firmer footing than it was 35 years ago. That said, while LaPierre’s overall track record is good, some mistakes warrant him stepping down.

Missing Clear Warning Signs Of Abuse

The Cuomo-James jihad that turned the power of New York against the country’s oldest pro-Second Amendment organization and which threatens EVERY pro-Second Amendment group or media outlet (including Ammoland) came with a lot of warning signs that were not heeded. Two big ones were the IRS scandal involving the Tea Party and Andrew Cuomo’s listing of Second Amendment supporters among those who had “no place in New York.”

The NRA should have acted then to prevent abuses and to shield themselves. They didn’t, and that is on LaPierre as Executive Vice President of the NRA. It could and should have been a straight fight over Cuomo’s infamous letter about “gun promotion organizations.”

Cultural Engagement

The fact of the matter is that for decades, anti-Second Amendment extremists have been far more active when it comes to engaging with pop culture. I’m not saying that the NRA faced an easy path when it came to engaging with Hollywood, but LaPierre apparently didn’t even bother with much effort at all. Even CMT, which should be our home turf, signed on to bull from Bloomberg.

The NRA should have been working decades ago to connect those who had been established in Hollywood with younger Second Amendment supporters who had talents, goals, and aspirations in pop culture and creative fields. They can still do that, but it will be much harder than it should have been. That LaPierre and NRA leadership didn’t do so is a stunning failure.

Failures In Outreach

This is a bit more nuanced. On some fronts, LaPierre was successful in growing the NRA, but a fair bit of that was preaching to the choir. Where LaPierre’s outreach failed was where Glenn Youngkin succeeded in the 2021 election. Translating the NRA-ILA’s fact sheets and legislative alerts isn’t the only failure, LaPierre should have pushed to translate the NRA’s safety materials and firearms training literature.

On a similar front, the NRA was also derelict in preventing the suburbs from becoming bastions for Bloomberg’s stooges. We are getting lucky with some serious dereliction on the part of left-wing officials, but it never should have come down to luck.

These failures are why Wayne LaPierre’s time with the NRA needs to come to an end. As much as he provided valuable service to the cause of the Second Amendment, the times have changed, and they call for new strategies and tactics that LaPierre has not shown he can implement. In order to defeat anti-Second Amendment extremists at the federal, state, and local levels via the ballot box, it’s time for some new blood at the NRA.

So, LaPierre is the problem, not the 76-member Board that is supposed to provide oversight and had the power to fire him at any point in time over the past 3 decades? Interesting!

JSNMGC

A board that was too focused on:

  • Celebrities from the movie industry;
  • Celebrities from the music industry; and
  • Celebrities from the defense industry.

The NRA board should have had more/better people from business who had extensive backgrounds in corporate governance, best practices for audit committees, and internal controls.

The Board size and composition was on purpose. It is designed to be incompetent and ruled by the few elite Board members that make the rules and give favors. There is not a single entity in the US that has a Board of this size, I believe. The typical Board size for a non-profit of the size of the NRA is 9.

JSNMGC

I know and I appreciate all you have done to bring attention to the matter.

Too many members were all excited about Heston, Nugent, and North. I’ve heard people on this board say “we need more warfighters on the NRA board.” No we don’t.

Heston, Nugent, and North had no experience in what mattered.

Russn8r

Heston, Nugent & North were all in it for themselves. Don’t be fooled. All three were on the payroll, self-dealing and keeping it hidden from the members.

They are going right down the totalitarian checklist.

John

LaPierre’s problem isn’t a few minor failures, its using our money to enrich himself and others while failing to defend our rights. He has also been just as big of a tyrant as those we stand against in the government and he unethically used his position to stifle opposition inside the NRA even to the point of alienating people like Oliver North and other big name 2A supporters.

He destroyed the NRA for personal gain and continues to hold onto power to try and protect himself from his self inflicted legal troubles.

Hang him from a yardarm.

Russn8r

Don’t be fooled. Olly North abused NRA finances too. He was upset his $1 million a year gig with vampire vendor Ak-Mc was threatened. The NRA Presidency is supposed to be a volunteer position, but he & Wayne cut a dirty secret deal to get paid bigly for it. North & Ak-Mc fought to keep his effectively laundered pay hidden from members.

The entire board of directors was in on the grift.

Wow, about time you got on board, but several years too late.

He’s not really on board. He’s still making false positive claims about NRA, and protecting the Board of Directors which is in on the grift.

Russn8r

It’s hardly just LaPierre, and it’s hardly just “mistakes”. The entire board with one exception is in on the corruption and/or guilty of gross dereliction. NRA has been selling gun rights out since the 1930s, backing all the major advances in gun control and registration. The advances in concealed carry are not NRA’s. In fact, NRA has supported “gun free” zones since their inception, fought tooth and nail against real Constitutional Carry, then taken credit when permitless carry (where honored) passed in spite of NRA sabotage & passive-aggression. Are you really that stupid?

Roland T. Gunner

You missed one: LaPierre was complicit with Charlie Rangel in allowing the Hughes Amendment to “pass”.

Orion

check your facts. the NRA opposed the Hughes amendment. Hughes was sly and introduced his paper late in the hearings but sadly not enough muscle could be found to counter its passage and still save the Firearm Owners Protection Act.

Wild Bill

I believe that it was late at night, and passed on a voice vote rather than an actual count. I could be wrong.

JSNMGC

“and still save the Firearm Owners Protection Act” That is just an alternative way of stating that the NRA supported FOPA with the Hughes Amendment.  FOPA was a bad idea to start with – the NRA should have documented the abuses of armed government employees and published it for all to see and used the resulting support to rescind or modify the GCA of 1968, which the NRA supported (specifically, Franklin Orth). Instead of pushing FOPA, the NRA should have worked to have those individual abusive armed government employees fired, arrested, prosecuted, convicted, and incarcerated – and their pensions taken away.… Read more »

Wow, Hutchison. You missed the very most important point of all about La Pierre. How about the fact that he’s been using the membership dues as a petty cash fund for travel and shopping? La Pierre is FAR more concerned with himself than the 2nd Amendment. Your reasons are valid ones but they don’t even make the top 10. Disappointing.

swmft

almost think last name is clinton, or rodahm

JPM

What a crock! Trying to say LaPierre has been good for the NRA in any way is nothing but B.S. and kissing LaPierre’s butt. Wayne LaPierre singlehandedly has destroyed the NRA and has been directly responsible for all the anti-gun legislation and indirectly responsible for all of the BATF atrocities that have occurred under his administration. He is a fraud, a crook and a liar who has used and abused his position within the NRA to become rich and powerful with the money obtained from the members.

swmft

not singlehandedly, he had help getting and staying in power

Dzapper

Yes, and if we are lucky the cat lady will get what she deserves, whether it be in this life or the next.

Orion

LaPierre grew the organization from 2 million to over 5 million at the peak. He did that by changing the NRA’s public focus to opposing and challenging any increases in gun regulations beginning in the late 1970s. Yes, we suffered a setback when congress passed the 1994 AWB but that’s only because the mass media swamped the nightly news for MONTHS with BS reporting and unlike today, there was no internet to challenge their lies.

The NRA is now a money laundering institute for their elite members. In one word RINOS

It was time for him to leave 25 years ago as he only enriched himself and talked out of both sides of his neck
I walked away from the NRA 20 years ago to a far better organization that really looks out for gun owners instead of always having the hat out for donaions

Rick

WLP turned into a greedy, micro-managing tyrant of an organization that we the people trusted with defending our 2nd amendment rights. He hand selected the board of directors and had a scorched earth policy for anyone who stood in his way. He burned through member donations and cash like a drunk seeks alcohol.
He needs not only to be replaced, he needs to serve time and pay restitution.

So does all but one of the corrupt 76-clown board of directors that rubber stamped the corruption. Including Dave Workman.

I agree that the 2nd Amendment is on much firmer footing than it was 25 years ago, and while not perfect, we have to thank the NRA for helping us get to where we are today. LaPierre has taken personal advantage of his position though and he has to go. We need new blood with the vision to fight our future battles, not someone stuck in his own muddy past. Why is it so hard to get rid of him?

JSNMGC

“we have to thank the NRA for helping us get to where we are today”

It really doesn’t matter how much evidence is posted to the contrary, does it?

Have you, or anyone in your firearm rights activist group in your county that you meet with regularly, ever tried to contact someone in the NRA and work with them?

Alan in NH

Yes, our local club works with certified NRA instructors for RO training, range insurance. they also supply us with fund raising prizes and range maintenance guidance and procedures. They have been a very good partner and provide very helpful resources of information that most other gun rights organizations don’t offer. The problems within the NRA leadership can be fixed.

JSNMGC

Have you ever worked with anyone in the NRA on legislative issues? Have you ever invited them to join you and your group to attempt to influence legislators by organizing a large group of pro 2nd Amendment rights people? Have you ever asked them why they supported red flag laws that deprived thousands of people in Florida their rights without due process? Have you pointed out to them that those people, after their firearms were taken, were free to remain in society and buy gasoline and propane, so maybe they weren’t really so dangerous? Did you ask the NRA why… Read more »

In the past 25 years the NRA has pushed for ERPOs aka red flag laws, regulation of firearm accessories, and the expansion of the failed and unconstitutional NICS through FixNICS. They also refused to support constitutional carry legislation in several states and have only recently in the past couple of years changed their tune on that.

The people who donate to the NRA are either clueless or want more never-ending gun control.

The NRA’s response to abuses by armed government employees after the GCA of 1968 was all anyone needed to know. They should have taken a leadership position to rescind the legislation, but instead, they continued their tactic of capitulation.

Like you, I gave them an opportunity subsequent to FOPA (with the Hughes amendment), but they just kept capitulating (and, even worse, pushed more gun control).

The donors are dying – it will be over soon.

I am thinking a bankruptcy breakup is impending. One can only hope that the functional and valuable assets will be distributed to other organizations so we do not lose those capabilities. Training and education to CMP or NSSF, Foundation to be independently incorporated, and the bureaucracy and political functional areas simply liquidated and money to pay off the remaining legal bills. National range to CMP. Whittington Center to iHEA. That way the resources and capabilities are preserved but under new leadership devoid of the influence and history of the current management.

Wild Bill

Bankruptcy is not my area, but bankruptcy courts do not generally distribute assets. The assets are sold.

So if Soros out-bid the NSSF for the Whittington Center, then Soros would get the Wittington Center.

Oh, Harold! After its full support of NFA34, the NRA had to be brought to the RKBA fight kicking and screaming all the way. I know you’re too young to remember, but not all that long ago (1960s) NRA wanted to devote its discretionary funding to developing the Whittington Center and giving a pittance to funding RKBA defense. That, in essence, is what kicked off what became known as the Cincinnati Revolt.
