Lieutenant Colonel Allen West (USA, Ret) Letter to NRA Board of Directors, Houston, TX.—May 19, 2022 To the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association: There really is little need to introduce myself since I serve on the NRA Board from 2016-2021. It was a true honor to be selected by the membership ofContinue reading “Col. West Letter To The Board”
Here are the results. It’s obvious that, even after three years, the situation is being successfully hidden from the membership. Of the directors who were deeply involved in it, Marion Hammer comes in No. 3, and Willes Lee at No. 13. The passing of Rep. Don Young and the resignation of Todd Rather mean thatContinue reading “NRA Board Elections 2022”
We’ve been passed an email from Frank Tait, saying he has been notified that he was not elected to the NRA board, but will be running for the 76th director, who is elected by voting members who attend and vote at the annual meeting. He won’t have much competition. The 76th director must be electedContinue reading “Frank Tait Not Elected (For Now, Anyway)”
After being closed for two years, supposedly due to Covid (in fact, state and country restrictions were lifted about a year ago), the main National Firearms Museum has reopened. We’d written about concerns that the museum’s collections were being looted and sold off, and how a former curator who’d loaned guns to the museum wasContinue reading “NRA Museum — Not Good News”
We have been forwarded a post from Frank Tait, announcing that Col. Allen West has agreed to be a candidate for NRA EVP at the next meeting of the board (which makes the choice). “Col. West said, “In the military, we have a saying, it is that Warriors move to the sound of the guns.Continue reading “Col. West Accepts, And More Support Him”
The defenders of NRA’s corrupt leadership didn’t take long to react. Here is their first hit-piece. The critics are corruption “repeat unproven and spurious allegations about Wayne and then argue that regardless of all he’s done for the association we’d be better off if we just send him packing.” Unproven and spurious? They’ve been provenContinue reading “Hit Piece On Col. West”
It’s disclosed at The Reload, as its name suggests, a pro-gun blog. West himself is a retired Lt. Colonel and former NRA director who called for LaPierre’s resignation and reform. As he said three years ago, as the scandals and coverups were being revealed, “There is a cabal of cronyism operating within the NRA andContinue reading “Call To Draft Allen West As NRA EVP/CEO”
Yesterday, the NY Attorney General filed a second amended complaint, which shifts the focus of her case and makes some new allegations. We’ve only had time to skim it (it’s over 170 pages long). It no longer seeks to dissolve NRA as a corporation. Hurrah! It does set out some new legal theories under theContinue reading “Second Amended Complaint Filed In NY Suit”
Here’s a useful chart. NRA revenues were increasing, and in 2018, the year things started to be revealed, amounted to $352 million. In 2019 they fell to $291 million and in 2020 to $282 million, a 21% drop in two years.Over 2009-2020 LaPierre’s salary roughly doubled, as did some others. Of the biggest contractors, AckermanContinue reading “NRA Finances 2009-2020”
The latest filing is a fight over whether the NY Attorney General can obtain a legal memo regarding preparation of NRA’s 990 tax return. Though it’s never mentioned, the best guess would that it regards the language inserted into the return admitting to Wayne LaPierre’s use of NRA funds to fly on corporate jets toContinue reading “New York Lawsuit Discovery Fight”
