The NRA lost it because they started counting money instead of upholding the second Amendment. What a shame.On the tax return issue, good day for America. Trump's tax returns should be made available. If no wrong, fine. As to the NRA? I would never support them as they left real support for gun owners a long time ago. Being a schizophrenic gun owner, I believe in the RTKBA AND belong the the Liberal Gun Owners Group.

You may be right but donating money that will be squandered and still left unprotect for what we are paying for is the greater evil. If the NRA would just do their Jobs there will be zero opening for the left.My opinion. This is exactly what the anti-gun people want to have happen by publicizing the wrong doings at the NRA. Getting pro-gun people to implode from within.
When Wayne gets sent packing first....I'm gonna have another coffee, call the NRA and donate some money to patch up the boat and buy shark repellent....Were in big trouble pard's the Constitution is under attack...The sails are full of holes. When I get the NRA on the line to give them some silver I will also give the a earful err I mean a suggestion..
In order word the NRA is pushing up to a corner because we need them, I am tired of people who are supposed to work for us giving out some kinda condition...If they get their S*** together i will support them without a second thought.Like voting for a politician you'd like to vote FOR a person, but all too often you have to vote AGAINST one.
We'd like the NRA to be cleaned up, but it's the only effective lifeboat in the ocean so we better support it, even if we have to hold our noses.
The correct action is for Life Members to use our votes and make the changes.
This happened once before some years ago in the famous Member revolt.
I've said this before about leaving the NRA and going to some other group. You can join them too, but NONE of them have any real detectable effect at protecting the 2nd. They're too small and don't have the muscle the NRA has.
I tell people to do a simple experiment to see how effective the NRA is compared to any other group.......
Go out in the street and stop the first person you see.
Ask him about "the gun lobby".
99% of the time they'll say "The NRA"?
Ask about any other group and they will have never heard of them.
If the boat is dirty and leaking and you're miles out in a sea full of man eating sharks, the appropriate and sane action is to patch the holes and start bailing, not abandon the boat.
Thank You....................I totally agree. The NRA has been around for over 140 years. They have had very, very few scandals. This, while the liberals dig through their trash to find anything to sink their ship. Are they perfect? No, a long way from it. But, they still get more done to protect our rights then all the other so called, "Gun Groups" put together. That's just a fact, plain and simple.Here is my rant. I don't think Yahoo and Good Morning America would be the first place I would want to go for non bias new on the NRA. Is there an agenda with this story? Most likely. Is every thing reported truthfully? Based on their record over the past four years, probably not. I think its way to early to predict the destruction of the NRA from outside sources. But false stories and rumor spreading can fracture it form within. Seems like every six months the same people are bashing Wayne LaPierre and the NRA. I am not going to argue with you about his compensation package or tactics. But I do vote for the board of directors and trust them to do their job even if it not same as what I would do. I have been in on the management of enough organizations and companies to know that unless its a sole proprietor you rarely get your way on everything. Boards are made up of different people just like society and they have different views. We need the NRA s clout and strength in membership to fight for our freedoms. Could leadership be better, sure maybe. But working constructively for changes is different than trying to bring the organization down because you don't like this or that part of it.
