Saturday’s meeting of the NRA Board of Directors was much more contentious than the rah-rah affair it usually is. A motion expressing no confidence in Executive Director Wayne LaPierre was defeated and the question was left to be decided by the Board.
The meeting of the full Board is this morning.
I think that the NRA Board of Directors’ Meeting (today) has a chance to be an organic and genuine event for the first time in quite awhile.
Whatever script existed for the meeting has been rendered null and void by the events of the last few days. Naturally, the same pro-establishment Directors will try to control the meeting, avoid difficult conversations and push things they must confront to committees…just like they and their cronies did…at the Meeting of Members.
Interestingly, it is apparently not normal for Directors to take time on the microphones during the Member’s Meeting…yet Marion Hammer, “Sheriff” Printz and James Porter felt compelled to do so.
They were visibly shaken and annoyed that Voting Members had the audacity to assert our Rights (according to Membership Bylaws and meeting procedures) to be heard and attempt to change the agenda of the meeting from the typical pep-rally format to a real discussion of important issues.
I hope the true leaders and agents of change on the BoD take advantage of the situation to #changethenra.
