“It shocks the conscience to read that certain board members have apparently not kept themselves updated, informed and active on matters on matters that are of interest to our 5 million members.”
That’s a line from a statement that the Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski posted from NRA President Carolyn Meadows, First Vice President Charles Cotton and Second Vice President LTC Willes Lee.
The NRA officers’ statement is in response to accusations from NRA Board member Allen West’s characterization of their comments in the media as “outright lies.”
Here’s Gutowski’s tweet with the full statement. Read the whole thing.
NEW: The NRA responds to board member @AllenWest‘s call for Wayne LaPierre to resign.
