As much as I hate identity politics, the next NRA president (and I hope it comes soon) needs to be something other than a white male. Preferably a racial minority so that any criticism of the NRA or its members is labeled as racist.

The current NRA president is a white woman, Carolyn Meadows.

The unelected Exec VP (WLP) and its elected rubber stamp board are where the real problems reside.

NRA Promised $6.5 Million to Buy Mansion for CEO Wayne LaPierre, Document Shows

Quote:
A top National Rifle Association executive signed a document agreeing that the gun-rights organization would be 99% owner of a company formed to buy a $6 million Dallas mansion for NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre, according to a copy of the document reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

The document also shows the NRA agreed to contribute $6.5 million to the company formed to buy the property, raising yet more questions about the NRA’s previous statements that none of the gun-rights group’s money was to be used to purchase the house for Mr. LaPierre.

Quote:
The newly revealed document reviewed by the Journal was dated at the time of WBB Investments’ formation in May 2018, and was signed by Wilson H. Phillips Jr., the NRA’s then-chief financial officer and treasurer. In it, he agreed that the NRA would contribute $6.5 million for 99% ownership of WBB Investments, while an Ackerman entity would contribute $10 for 1% ownership.


NRA spokesman is starting to resemble Baghdad Bob.

How To Lose 5 Million Guys In 10 Months...

Could be the title of a movie explaining the imploding end of the NRA.

Good grief, this really pisses me off after all the money I've given over the years. I say again, I wish a bunch of us regular guys could take over & run it like it should be.

You know who's a brand new member of the board? Mark Keith Robinson. Big dude who made that now famous speech in his appearance before his local city (county?) council when they were debating clamping down on gun shows at the local fairgrounds.

Maybe you remember his first touch of public life:



He's been propelled from passionate history teacher into the public light. Now running for Lt. Governor of NC, and who knows what else down the road. Strikes me as the sort of guy that would be a perfect "every man" face of the NRA. At least he's on their BoD now, and might just do what he can to shake things up a bit.

I vote for Colion Noir. He's smart, has a good background with the NRA, is a lawyer, well spoken and black.

Ha! No. For a refreshing change of pace, the person hired or elected or knighted or whatever, should actually be chosen because they are the best qualified person for the job, not by "who you knew" or "who you blew"...

Yes, preferably someone that will look the president, politicians, gun control activists in the face and tell them to "F*** off!"

I don't care what their race/sex/religion is.
