No one knows who would make a good CEO for the NRA. A few people have someone they like for the job, but there’s no one that everyone is ready to get behind.
Part of the political success of anti-gun politicians in the last election was due to the absence of the NRA in house campaigns, and their absence turned Virginia into California-East.
But who exactly, is so desperately needed in D.C., and are those same people desperately need at the Board of Director’s Meeting?
NRA Executive Vice President, Wayne LaPierre, released this statement regarding recent conversations with President Trump on the calls for new gun control and the recent mass murders.
LaPierre’s response to the ultimatum was swift and decisive: he refused to step down, disclosed the threats that were made, and accelerated legal efforts.
In the face of orchestrated campaigns and legal disputes, the NRA has made tough decisions – demanding, among other things, increased transparency from its vendors. Most complied, but not all.
People keep asking me about what’s going on at the NRA. Well, first of all, if you don’t know what is going on around there.I almost don’t know what to say because it’s big news.
I want to share some important history of our Association. There are many things about NRA’s past of which many may not know, simply because members haven’t been involved in NRA until more recently.
I stand behind the NRA, the NRA Board of Directors and Wayne LaPierre and in turn collectively we stand behind the Second Amendment and the Gun Owners of the United States.
The targeting of any of the NRA organizations nonprofit status is an existential threat. If the NRA were to lose its nonprofit status, the organization could be dissolved.
In recent weeks we have heard that multiple NRA Board members that had the gall to question Wayne LaPierre’s leadership have been removed or not reappointed to their previous committees.
The dollar amount of support that is now being withheld currently totals nearly 148-million dollars in annual gifts, estates, advertising, and other support and is growing daily.
Thank you, sir, for your decades of service. Thank you for defending the 2A. Thank you in advance now for doing the right thing. Few men can place their pride aside for the greater good.
The NRA’s ongoing account of gross mismanagement reported here will enrage you and all we can say is Wayne Lapier and the current Executives need to be gone from our organization.
What necessitated the change now is our conclusion that our longtime advertising firm and website vendor failed to deliver upon many contractual obligations it made to our Association.
The last two EVPs were both promoted from ILA. The results have been self-defeating and duplicitous. Let LaPierre be the last! Let the next (and all future) EVP come from Education or Conservation!
Here is what the NRA (National Rifle Association) needs right now! It needs a reboot at the top… the house needs to be clean.
What is essential is that Wayne LaPierre must retire, and do it now, for the good of the organization. Knock, knock, Wayne – members are leaving, fundraising is drying up, big donors are pulling out..
Adding to the cash drain is the New York State lawsuit and the NRA’s hired lawyer bleeding us of cash. You can see that Governor Cuomo is happy to run out the litigation clock along with Wayne…
So I’ve waited to write this letter, having seen the good the NRA does it was and is important to gather all the information before voicing my opinion.
America needs a strong NRA, and our rights need a strong NRA. I want to and plan on remaining an NRA member, but some things must change at the top.
The NRA has released a statement following the completion of the 2019 National Rifle Association Board of Directors Meeting. Meet your new bosses, same as the old bosses.
Some hot takes on the controversial departure of Oliver North.
What’s clear is, the danger from such internecine strife has the potential to be more destructive to NRA than anything Cuomo or Bloomberg could throw at it.
Ackerman-McQueen & all of their high placed front people, executives, hand-picked Board Members, scripted spokespeople, and vendors need to be excised from the fight for our gun rights.
