Perfect Doodie topic!
 
So what is the deal with the NRA debacle? I have always thought the NRA was the ultimate gun owners insiders club so a lot of it does not surprise me, but is the latest stuff just the left trying to turn us against ourselves? Summarize please and give me some perspective.

I am a member.

I’m not sure what you’re referring to as a debacle. Care to explain?

I trust the lefty news media implicitly. They certainly haven't made a bigger than reasonable deal about the mueller report, and they reported honestly and accurately about the effects of Trump's tax cuts, and we KNOW they only publish well-researched and factual articles about firearms in general, so I think they are probably equally trustworthy when writing about the NRA.

I don't trust the lefty anything one bit more than I should but there is a real problem over there and a clean house is in order - some folks are living real high on the backs of the common members that will never see the free gear and trips and high salaries and damn poor representation to boot!

Just exactly what the fuck are you talking about?

 

Is there a specific issue (that you can point to a reference source), or are you just pissed off in general?

bet he's referring to the monthly reminders to re-up that likely could drop the annual dues to a buck if they just would stop mailing that shit.

This: https://www.newyorke...-financial-mess

or https://www.newyorke...reed-at-the-nra

 

According to the New Yorker this story was published in partnership with The Trace, a nonprofit news organization covering guns in America. https://www.thetrace...bout-the-trace/ The Trace was founded on reporting on gun control and gun violence issues and partners with Slate. “The Trace is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit newsroom dedicated to shining a light on America’s gun violence crisis.”

 

Under the “Why We Started This Site”: “An emboldened NRA has operated largely in secrecy, while actively promoting misinformation.” Under their list of donors: Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund.

 

Hardly an unbiased source of information. The deck was stacked against the NRA from the beginning. I think it is bunch of lies and nonsense based on a grain of truth.

 

However, the NRA is not without its own issues. It has made questionable choices and there are some people that have been there too long. The board has not used its oversight properly and the funds have always been spent well. I’d like to see a  good audit and restructuring like the Wounded Warrior Project went through several years ago.

 

The NRA is still the biggest pro-gun organization and I’ll still support them. Plus, they are the Baba Yaga for the liberals and media and they are big enough to pressure political leaders.

If you REALLY want the inside scoop on the NRA, go on YouTube and find “The Yankee Marshall” and watch some of his videos regarding the NRA.....true dat!

One more organization consumed with internal politics while the industry leads it around by the nose. Sounds familiar.

I think it is worse than I wanted to think but I still re-upped - it is like Donald Trump he gives the Libs fits and makes them less effective and strategic in their actions.

I'm in the NRA and I vote.

25$ a year to be part of the largest organization fighting to defend the 2A.

I don't have to agree with everything....

And I don't answer the phone for calls from Virginia either.

I like to rewatch election night 2016 coverage and I want to marry a conservative black girl who likes to shoot.
