If you’ve been following all of the sturm und drang coming out of the NRA Annual Meetings over the weekend, you may have seen our post on the general membership meeting that was held Saturday. During the meeting, a motion was made to discuss the critical issues and allegations facing the NRA in open session where everyone could hear and participate.

The motion was ultimately defeated in favor of referring the matter to the board of directors itself. That board meeting has been taking place today and still continues.

A number of people spoke both for and against airing the issues in public, including current board members. One NRA member to speak was Rob Pincus of I.C.E. Training, who make the following videos which give you a flavor of what took place on Saturday.

    Pincus is a joke.

    BUT he makes a good point regarding transparency and the members right to know.

    Dude, your 18th century Rousseauian German artistic movement rejecting neoclassical literary norms is showing.

    Pincus… no thank you. I did not read past Pincus.

      No need to share your ignorance with the class.

      I don’t like the man, but he did something others wouldn’t or couldn’t.

      His jealousy of Noir in his written statements is scummy.

    The point is that questions have been raised about which the majority of the membership has been unaware, to include myself and most of you reading this. The information in the New York Times and that which the New York investigation are likely to bring to light reveal serious allegations of questionable fiduciary practices of the organization’s leadership. Keeping all of this behind closed doors merely encourages rumor and speculation. Leaving only the BOD to sort this out is a “fox guarding the henhouse” scenario as one of the questions raised is an alleged failure of the BOD as as group to do due diligence in overseeing the organization. Let’s shine a light on the mismanagement allegations and let the membership decide once we have all of the facts.

      Sunlight is the best disinfectant. If there are problems then lets correct them swiftly before the liberal media and lawyers get into it and turn the NRA into another ENRON scandal and destroy it which is their goal.

    2. avatar EnDangerEd says:

      There were accusations and complaints in the 90’s and the BOD “addressed it” behind closed doors and there was never an accounting to the membership. I let my membership expire and have never rejoined. This incident makes me think I was right to leave, and other groups that I support have managed to accomplish some good things despite not being huge in number but always accountable to their members.

    Pincus has a few good points but coming from such a self promoting shill makes it hard to listen to.

    1. avatar User1 says:

      Well, Joe, you must improve yourself. The messenger should not matter when they speak the truth.

    Notice how most of the members are over 50 years of age, the NRA is dying and in doing so they are denying the corruption and rot that has been going on since the 90s. Name me ONE Major Gun Regulation that the NRA has helped to rescind? I can name you many others they did NOTHING or called for to be enacted. I will NEVER give another dollar to the NRA until the people in charge are GONE. Son all you Fudds run your mouth and watch your rights be GIVEN away.

      Right On I am a GOA and now with FPC in a law suit to help protect what is ours.Not the ATF or the DemoRats.It pandering to compromise and Trump Messed up and I hope Barr will help US in the lawsuits to overthrow the ATF and some day get rid of the 1934 NFA ! I hate what I see in the freshman class of Congress and how did we let Nasty P stay in office for so long.corruption is the Bottomline.All men are flawed.

      1. avatar Warren says:

        Is Barr an authentic friend of the second amendment?

        1. avatar Snake Plisskin says:

          I have my doubts that he is but he’s free to prove me wrong.

        2. avatar JOHN R Bowie says:

          just look up his previous track record for your answer.

      2. avatar Snake Plisskin says:

        I’m with you guys as well. Have been on the fence about joining GOA but this latest NRA debacle has pushed me over to them as well.

        NRA are you listening? Not one more dime from me. Have a good day.

  7. avatar RA-15 says:

    GOA SAF FPC deserve my dollars , NRA , Not another cent.

  8. avatar Red says:

    NRA members are sheep. Do a little research and you will find that the NRA has been selling the Second Amendment down the road since at least the 1930s.

    Join Gun Owners of America, who has never compromised ANYTHING EVER and don’t have a bunch of subsidiaries like magazines that just take up time and energy from the real fight.

    1. Wasn’t the NRA started by a Statist Union general in order to teach marksmanship to men of draftable age after witnessing superior accuracy from Confederates in the war to combat secession?
