Who knows where this goes, but I hope they get North out of there. He is a self promoting yahoo.

Realistically they both need to go.

Edit to add; also the board of directors is at least 5 times larger than it should be.

Well, it appears there was a coup attempt. North is out, LaPierre is still in. Personally, I think there needs to be a good housecleaning at the top. I quit the NRA when I couldn't stand the all the junk mail and e-mails that ILA was putting out where I just HAD to send money or the world as we know it would end.

I antagonist on LaPierre, very glad North is gone. Agree a house clearing is due.

Most orgs send gloom and doom fund raisers, unfortunately they work.

The NRA board is a swamp just like fedgov, and it needs to get flushed. But every attempt to do so, or to get reform candidates elected seems to fall short, or just get blocked by TPTB...

Knox's article is pretty good.

Every time I got one of those "Your rights could be LOST 4EVAR!!!11!" missives, back when I was a member, I wanted to ask Laird LaPierre if that meant they would counsel compliance.

I went to NRAAM 2019. The tenor was tight.
Attendance was down.
The Wayne is the NRA posters everywhere...
MANY people were grumbling and willing to talk about malfeasance / corruption. Instagram was full of rancor...

I quit five years ago. I won't be back until there are some major changes.
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

You should let them know that.
