After watching this press briefing it’s clear to me that this is just a stunt to further drain the NRAs funds. The entire reasoning behind it is opinion based and imo none of her business, this is between the NRA and it’s membership.

NYC Mayor de Blasio's management decision last month to defund his police department by $1 Billion, during what he describes as a perfect storm, is not mismanagement?

In my humble opinion, the NRA needs to answer where our money is being spent (I'm a full price life member) because they sure seems like they haven't done much for us the last few years.

With that said, this is just another attack on the 2nd Amendment and the gun grabbers are only doing what they told us they'd do. For years now they've clearly said they will sue gun manufacturers, ammo manufactures, suppliers and take down the NRA's financial power.

No NRA money means no NRA lobbyists.

Maybe it's time for new NRA leadership that will aggressively defend the 2A.

When you have a District Attorney office that will not prosecute Violent Criminals (NYC, New York in general) because it is contrary to the will of the Governor, you have to find SOMETHING for all of those highly liberaly educated active young lawyers to do. They are Professional Government employees. You cannot fire them. You have to get them to do SOMETHING. Even if it is useless.

The lawsuit also claims that testimony by the chairman of the N.R.A.’s audit committee indicated that he had little awareness of its governance role, no knowledge of state law concerned such committees and was unfamiliar with the committee’s own charter, which states that it oversees the organization’s financial integrity..."

Time will tell, but as a guy who was a financial and compliance auditor for 32 years that last paragraph screams possible fraud or a total disregard for applicable laws and reporting at the least.

This should take about 10 years to resolve.

NY State AG suing to dissolve NRA

We all know about the allegations re Wayne's expenses but this can't be allowed to stand.

The NRA is not your friend. They represent the firearms manufacturers and are led by a bunch of apparent crooked men.

Join the GOA and get a no compromise organization in a position of power that represents you for gun owner

I won't dispute that the NRA is a troubled organization (of which I am a proud member). The problem here is the NRA isn't being targeted due to it's conduct (which may prove to be deplorable) but because of it's political stance.

I am always amazed at how many members of the NRA do not realize that the leadership doesn't give a damn for the membership. The leadership cares about itself how much money it can spend on their expense account. The NRA represent gun manufacturers not gun owners. That is why I believe very strongly in the Gun Owners of America, they genuinely care about their membership and have a no compromise position on gun ownership

She’s acting like she’s protecting gun owners, and is incensed by the NRA’s financial corruption - but there isn’t a politician in New York who would protect gun owners.

It’s just an election year political stunt...it’ll go no where. Pretty sure we’ll eventually find out the real reason she’s wasting Taxpayer money on this. Probably just creating a headline she can run on or something...

I am a proud member, and have been to 7 conventions, where I have met much of the leadership, and spoken at length with.
All through the Obama years the IRS had permanent offices at NRA, where they did full audits every year.
Think the IRS found misuse. No
Friends of NRA is very very careful in how the raise and distribute money. All to the shooting sports, and nearly everyone a volunteer worker.
A lot of the misuse stories come from the son of the guy that did not want the ILA wing started. A lot of it, is a power grab. I would not mourn Wayne leaving, but not for him, or his ilk.


I hear a lot about the GOA, and it is very good, but who does the left focus on.
The GOA is never a mover and shaker for us politically where it counts.
The NRA is the only 800 lbs gorilla the left worries about, and tries to end.

The left is the proof the NRA is still our voice. The members voting is still what they fear.

Same with Fox News. One America is better, but it is Fox the left aims at, because they know Fox has the viewers. They know Fox hurts them, and the try hard to kill it off.

It's far from a stunt. She is out to destroy the NRA and I think she will be successful and very possibly get jail sentences. I used to live in NY and she is a force to be reckoned with.

I agree that there arguably much better pro-gun rights organization to contribute to. I'm also a member of an organization that represents state level gun rights.

Regarding the NRA, 30 whatever bucks a year gets me a magazine subscription, a bunch of stickers and the odd discount or perk at a few ranges. They also give me information on which political candidates are poor on gun rights. I think it's a token gesture towards gun rights on the national scale and the value I get is okay.

Represent me, the manufacturers, whoever... I'm just glad *someone* is out their advocating for gun rights. I wouldn't hand them any more than annual dues but I don't feel the slightest bit of regret for my membership.
