BAU. EOS. FS. Orange man bad; NRA bad; guns bad. Can we move onto something else now? The paid reviews/ads are more interesting and useful. Reply “Can we move onto something else now? The paid reviews/ads are more interesting and useful.” While I don’t disagree with you, guns and gun politics are a “warts and all” package… Reply “While I don’t disagree with you, guns and gun politics are a “warts and all” package…” Don’t get me wrong, warts and all are good stuff for articles. But the NRA thing has truly been done to death. The only thing of interest would be not the internal corruption (won’t change), but movement of the NY/NYC attempt to kill the NRA. Regardless of the title, or the organization, when one person has been in charge for 40yrs, that person owns the organization. And for those who do not know how perpetual salaries survive the death of an organization, it is called “annuity”, purchased from an insurance company; Wayne wins no matter what. Reply As a current 5 year paid member I would like to add my name to that list. Sounds like a plan to me. Reply Recusal is for the honest. When you have a problem with dishonesty, you can expect they will stay and fight. I don’t expect change, and will let my membership lapse if I don’t see any real change in the next few months. Reply Great idea. Sounds like a plan. Reply “Yumpin Yimminy Christmas!” Heard that in a movie once, always wanted a chance to use it. I guess I know who some of the rotten apples are and hope they lose. Doesn’t mean I know who the not-rotten apples are. Sure hope the not-rotten’s win this thing. Meanwhile the GOA and SAF are getting their share from me this year, plus half each from the NRA’s share of the tax refund I always take from to make donations. The money is in the bank, so out go my little annual contributions. Just not to the NRA, not this year.

Option 1. A majority of the Board circles the wagons in defense of Wayne LaPierre and his pals and tries to weather the storm. (They’ll fail, and the whole ship will sink.) or Option 2. A majority of the Board fires LaPierre and other executives (or accepts their resignations) and nullifies their contracts, suspends all vendor contracts pending thorough review and renegotiation, and purges culpable members of their own body – demonstrating a commitment to safeguarding NRA assets on behalf of the membership. (Plugging the holes and possibly saving the ship.) Wayne LaPierre must go! By Jeff Knox the son of the great Neal Knox who changed the NRA! Look up Revolt at Cincinnati.
