Interesting observations. I think the muddle away from 2nd Amendment only seriously hurts the NRA. Not that I disagree with the positions, but a pro gun Democrat should feel free to join too if they want to maximise their footprint.

Been a Life Member since 1979, always add change and a buck ordering from supportive suppliers and send extra ever since. I dunno if or how much of this is a kefluffle but NRA still pisses off the Dems and I'm good with that.

So Wayne spent a crap load of money in Beverly Hills. I don't a lot of members would be upset if it was in Iowa at Brownells.

Reportedly the next BOD meeting is in Anchorage. Seems to be a fair amount of speculation they chose that location to make it a little more difficult for unhappy NRA members to attend.

If that’s their goal, I am not sure if it is going to work out the way they want.

Not so much.

Spending his own money? Whatever and where ever he wants. Spending the NRA's money, meaning money from the members? Spend it on what WE want, which is fighting for the Second Amendment. I've no problem with reasonable expenses incurred in doing so (transportation, legal fees, etc), but when you're apparently milking the organization AND rolling over for everything the other side hands out you're not doing what the membership wants.

One thing I saw seemed to indicate that Wayne has been keeping a mistress at our expense.

There was a letter from Ackerman-McQueen published that was in response to the demands made in NRA’s lawsuit. In order to comply, they requested clarification on some of the items that NRA had been paying them for, one of which was the exact business relationship between NRA and some woman they had been asked to rent an apartment for.

It is probably not a good idea to declare war on one’s own pet PR firm.
