Let me first state this isn't a politics thread; I read the TOS and the threads explaining what can/should be posted in this forum in regards to the RKBA. Today I received my final copy of Guns & Ammo magazine from my subscription; I turned to the Keith Wood article on the final page titled "Did NRA's financial problems lead to a Biden victory?". The article touches on the statistics of election spending by the NRA in 2016 versus 2020. The amounts are scary to say the least: in 2016 the NRA spent $54 million on state and federal elections with $30 million going to Trump. In 2020, $23.2 was spent with $7 million going to congressional candidates. Now compare that to the $60 million that Mike Bloomberg spent. The article also mentions Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, Paul Allen, Steve Ballmer, Rupert Murdoch (of FOX News fame) and George Soros among many of the wealthy donors to gun control groups. Yes, many of the problems the NRA is facing is self-inflicted and I, as a Life Member, am angry at the current leadership. However, I grow tired of people in the 2A community that say "let them die, they need to go away, they're just a money making business"; I don't agree with that sentiment. GOA, NAGR, and others don't have the reach that the NRA does. I'm sorry, I'm not for turning my back on an organization founded 150 years ago by Civil War veterans to improve marksmanship, that trained young men in the art of marksmanship before being inducted in WWI and WWII, that works to provide police officers training, that started political lobbying in the 1970's (look it up, John Dingell (D) from Trenton, MI encouraged the NRA to implement their Institute for Legislative Action), etc. I have an idea and I want the input of THR members on this. We in the 2A community need to work to revitalize this organization; I just read about Harlan Carter who in 1977 led the revolt against the NRA's leadership at the annual meeting. If enough of us attend an annual meeting would we be able to succeed in changing the by-laws and voting Wayne LaPierre out? We need a wholesale leadership change and he needs to be the first to go; we need integrity and people who are there at the NRA need to be in place for the right reasons. Please post your opinions and suggestions. Thank you.
