    A man with dignity would realize that despite whether he thinks he is in the right and his cadre plumps his ego, that he is a detriment and go. That's all there is to it.

    For those who engage in thinking that personnel changes destroy an organization, look to the history of military leadership. McClellan vs. Grant?

    Absolutely they are trying to end the NRA.
    A judge also ruled that the NRA cannot be dissolved. It is not in the members best interest.

    If you have an opponent and your actions lead to a vulnerability open to the opponent and your continued presence keeps on being a handicap, what do you do? Perchance, the charges might have validity even if proposed by your opponent?

    That statement is a little misleading. The judge told NY AG Letitia James that she could not amend her lawsuit against the NRA, saying she was seeking to dissolve the organization if she wins the suit. If there were no lawsuits, and the Board faced a bankruptcy situation, I am sure they could dissolve the organization, although it might possibly require a vote of the membership and not just the Board.

    True. But the members don't want to dissolve the organization they just want proper reform with new leadership and an actual board of directors that will do what's in the members best interests. As soon as that happens I will rejoin.

    Right now, the NRA is like a toothless dog, or maybe a better analogy would be a swimmer trying to swim on the ocean with a leg iron attached, and that weighted leg iron would actually be Wayne LaPierre, clutching and clawing at the struggling swimmer to save himself. With all the internal turmoil, things are not getting accomplished as they should. Focus, energy, and funding have been and will be wasted. As such, the needed bite is gone.

    When other groups get shady leaders, they are investigated and the bad leaders are removed by trying and convicting them in court, such as what happens quite often with leaders in the UAW or Teamsters (no offense intended to members of both groups). Dishonest leaders who are in a position to manage funds who instead siphon money to fill their own pockets and the pockets of their friends are identified and prosectuted. In the case of the NRA, however, the goal of the prosecution is to dismantle the NRA itself, not just to go after dishonest leaders who have used NRA monies as their own slush fund.

    I have no loyalty to LaPierre and his time has passed. He's a toothless dog. If he and his cronies are guilty of misappropriating funds and using them as their own, they should be removed from their positions and they should be dealt with appropriately in criminal court. NRA monies should not be squandered in lawsuits, and the bylaws should be rewritten and restored to prevent the inability of the BOD and general membership to correct issues and remove bad leadership.

    As an NRA Benefactor member, I believe in the NRA, but I cannot support dishonesty.

    Donate to all of them. Perfect or not No infighting. Or we lose. Give the most money to the the one the media demonizes the most. That is the one they are afraid of.

    Oh yes, of course, Blow-the-lung-out Joe says it, so it must be true. If 9mm blows out the lung, then a .45 ACP is going to cut someone in two! We won't ask Joe about that one.

    Rick James said it the best.
    Cocaine is one hell of a drug.

    This NRA member thinks WLP is a cancer and cares more about lining his own personal pockets than doing his dam job.

    Are you sure this guy isn't partaking of some left-over Jim Jones Hawaiian Punch?

    The worst part is I was looking at his beard and general demeanor and thinking, "D**n, that's what I'm gonna look and sound like in 20 years." I mean, I already have most of that beard down already. :(

    when you’re young you think you know it all

    when you’re midage you realize you don’t know nothing

    when you’re old, the truth comes out of your mouth!

    When your near deaths door, you only lie to yourself. That’s why I respect old peoples advice. And it’s Universal too
