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.

The NRA lost it because they started counting money instead of upholding the second Amendment. What a shame.
It is all a witch hunt and hurt or discredit him so he can't re-fun for the Presidency.

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.
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.

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.

Doubtless the Left, with the President having vowed to destroy the NRA and having bragged he's beaten them before and will again, is all about hastening the demise of the NRA. I felt betrayed when Wayne threw us machine gun owners under the bus in 1986. Still, if the organization is to survive, it needs numbers. Anti gun Congressmen need to feel the wrath of the voters like they did in 1994. We are in real danger with a vehemently anti gun President signalling his eagerness to sign any and all restrictive measures that reach his desk.

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.

WAKE UP! All hands on deck. Not time to be having a circular firing squad. We need to be directing fire out side the tent! Wayne ain’t perfect but RIGHT NOW he’s the best we got. The anti-gunners are laughing their collective asses off at our infighting. It only encourages them.

I believe that it was General George Patton who said, “A good plan executed NOW is better than a perfect plan executed next week.” We need action NOW.

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.

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.

Are they in some tough times? Are there some leaders in the organization now that may have taken some personal liberties.....................Maybe, even probably. But I for one believe absolutely nothing the biased, liberal, gun hating, Pravda, socialist/communist loving democrats and media tell me anymore. Or, I know for sure that they will highly exaggerate what they tell the Country to make the NRA look much worse then what is the truth. Look how conservatives are being totally censored.

Am I sticking my head in the sand. Maybe, a little. But I can see the forest not the trees out in front. Everything can have constructive change. Even the NRA and it's leadership. But being so vocal in trashing them totally is just helping those that want to destroy not only the NRA but you and I too.

I think the argument that La Pierre should have gone a long time ago is a waste of time...no offense to anyone...that's backwards thinking. The issue is what will the NRA do to fix itself and move forward. Blame can wait at best. Moving forward into possibly the greatest, most organized assault on the Constitution is all that matters at the moment and how to deal with this head on. Whether this means with or without Wayne La Pierre is less important than the fact that the NRA and its members (us) through its Board of Directors needs to meet the threat in a positive, organized and effective manner. Letter writing to the Board of Directors is a viable option regarding La Pierre's future with the NRA.

The NRA is the 800-pound gorilla when it comes to pro-Constitution and pro-firearms groups...both lobbying and legal aid oriented. The GOA, CCRKBA, GOA, SAF and state organizations may be effective but they generally don't have the deep pockets the NRA has to fund lobbying efforts and court actions. Supporting them all is wonderful...each has specialties and specialists the others may not have. Each has its own networking relationships and knows how to use them.

I'll say this just the one time: It would be imprudent to abandon the single most powerful civil rights organization the world has ever seen at this precarious time in the history of our Republic. Do not throw the baby out with the bathwater.
I reckon there are but very few problems that cannot be solved with some correct thinking applied.
I will wait and see what the real story is and push forward from there.
Rant over.
God Bless the United States of America.
