Ex #2 in NRA and says it caters to the extreme fringe.

Well isn't that shocking news!!! Not. Joshua Powell former Chief of STaff in the NRA and was fired in January is set to release a book. In it he talks about the severe financial mismanagement of the NRA and said further, its is "rife with fraud and corruption."

 

Well let's see how this works. Trump gins up his base with fear and anger.  amd says he is the "law and order President" and to be very afraid of Biden and the Dems., so they all go to the gun shops to get their guns.

 

 

The attorney general of New York concluded an 18-month investigation last month that revealed that top executives funneled contracts to friends and family members and used charitable funds for personal gain.

“The NRA is fraught with fraud and abuse, which is why, today, we seek to dissolve the NRA, because no organization is above the law,” Attorney General Letitia James said in August.

Powell’s new book — “Inside the NRA: A Tell-All Account of Corruption, Greed and Paranoia Within the Most Powerful Political Group in America” — accused LaPierre of using national tragedies to line his own pockets.

   At the moment, the State of NY is running the case against the NRA and I am more than satisfied with that state of affairs.    By it being outside of DC, Barr and Donald can't touch the investigation.  

 

    Sure the guy may be looking to burnish his good guy image, because he is named in the case.   Wayne should be sweating!

How does one reply to such an in depth study of the NRA. The NRA is here to give rise to the ability of our citizens to have the right to bare arms. Without this constitutional amendment we our subject to tyranny which we all fought hard to overcome. 

Liberals in this country have a hard time understanding how this right really works for their benefit as well as the entire country. If you want to be ruled with entire compunction and without any rights go to China, North Korea, Iran and famously Russia. These are places without democracy and they live in the same universe you are able to. They sacrificed brothers, sisters and family to make this the best place on earth to live. 

It is troubling to me that an American would consider any other country to live in. I am an American and will has I have stand behind that flag at all cost and did, what about you?

You seem to have lost the plot entirely. The right to bear arms is in the Constitution and was around long before there was an NRA, and it will be around long after the NRA is gone. The NRA began with a laudable goal and mission to educate people about gun safety, etc. but over the last couple of decades they've become an organization of conmen and grifters who live large at their donors expense. I can't see any reason to defend that. If people want an organization geared toward working for it's members and their interests, fine, but get rid of the corrupt NRA and start over.

Defending a corrupt NRA makes me wonder where people's loyalties lie, is it with the mission of gun owners, or with Wayne LaPierre no matter what he does?

@Tom5678 

Have to be ready for all of the hordes that will be invading across our border!

And all of the minorities that will attack and pillage our suburbs! Buy more guns, and give us your money. Just promotion of fear, extortion, and chaos from trump and the nra.

As far as the nra:

If it walks like excess, and it talks like fraud...it’s most likely excess and fraud!

should be a Congressional investigation into the NRA. Remember that Russian women who penetrated them last year?
