Nra

Just got an email from the NRA saying they are in dire straits. Wayne LA Pierre says he cut the organization down to bare bones because of the economic impact of the coronavirus. He wants every member to chip in any amount that they can afford. Said he layed off lots of people and doesn't know if he can bring them back. Also claims everyone had a salary cut. If your not a member now would be a great time to join. Lapierre also said the convention and fund raising banquets are all canceled. We may be looking at the end of the NRA as we know it.

Not funny. Maybe he's over-reacting, but either way without the NRA the Democrats will have a clear field to stomp all over our 2nd Amendment.

We can thank one man for that....Wayne LaPierre. He turned the NRA into his own personal cash cow. Many refuse to support the organization while he is still at the helm.


Second Amendment Foundation and Gun Owners of America make better use of their members money.

There is no organization that has done as much for gun rights as the NRA or is as capable as the NRA. The NRA is the only gun organization you will hear mentioned from the liberal left this campaign season.

True, they wield the most power in DC, and for years I supported the NRA, while not caring one bit for the way LaPierre was running the show. When things came to light as to the vast misappropriation of funds, that was it for me....and many others. I refuse to support the NRA (I'm a life member) until they rid themselves of Wayno. Plain and simple.

It pains me to have to do so, but it's the only way the NRA is going to get the message...and it appears they may be starting to get that message. They really need new leadership.

GOOD! I have NOTHING for the NRA! They supported the National Firearm's Act and Gun Control Act of 1968 not to mention they did not fight the bump stock ban!

Gun Owners of America ALL THE WAY here!

I also am a life member of the NRA, as is my son and one of my daughters. All three of us have since joined Gun Owners of America. Until LaPierre is no longer in control they will not have our support. A friend of mine recently joined the NRA and said the knife they sent him for joining was "Made in China." He was unaware of the controversy and said he would not renew his membership.

I carry a gun because I'm to young to die and to old to take a --- whipping.

So, everybody that don't support the NRA because of misappropriated funds shouldn't buy hunting license in PA. to support the PGC because the PGC had how many Millions of $$ unaccounted for just a short while ago. Same thing, right. Misappropriated funds.
