I know I am tired of getting emails from them telling me if I do not send them money they are going bankrupt
Lots of infighting.
LaPierre has been there too long, makes too much money and they don't take a hard enough stance for gun rights.
The "president" in my opinion is nothing more than the most famous/popular person they can get to act as their spokesman. The person gets paid a huge amount to fund raise and act as the face of the NRA.
In this case Ollie North. Who also is also employed by the person the pr company the NRA hired to handle pr and is embroiled in a huge lawsuit with them . North is taking home a 7 figure from them so he has an enormous conflict of interest.
They are hemorrhaging stupid cash for pr, president, spokesman etc and doing little for strengthening gun rights.
You might not like bump stocks, neither might the NRA board and maybe they would choose to not to support bump stocks but I'm sure we can all agree they shouldn't be campaigning AGAINST them, right? It's just one cog of many where the NRA has come out as against gun rights. Certainly not what I want them using my money for.
