As much as it pains me to agree, WLP did have a huge hand in the rise and fall of the NRA. He was a great powerhouse for the organization for years, but like some do, fell in love with himself and the camera. The only way the NRA will regain the prestige and respect it had is a complete overhaul of the upper management, which is unlikely at this time. I also urge people to join local grass roots groups, such as I am a member of the Arizona Citizens Defense League, a great outfit with a long track record of wins.

The only hope is a truly neutral court-appointed trustee to dismiss the entire Board and re-write the by-laws according to 501(c) best practices.

Agreed. Things are not looking good when you hope a court-appointed trustee takes over.

+1 on the CDL

They are a big reason AZ has restored are rights.  Their tools are keeping everyone in the loop on what legislators are trying to strip and what they are doing to bolster rights.

The problems at the NRA is another good reason to support some other pro-gun organizations.

Been a life member since the 70's (I think), NRA is still the best known, and most potent for us IF the
organization is cleaned out as mentioned numerous times above. 8)

WLP was re-elected unanimously as CEO earlier this month. Nothing will change. He will go down with the ship unless there is a court-ordered re-structuring.

Maybe WLP is another fake 2A’er who’s there to purposely ruin the NRA…. :o  Maybe another tin foil hat, maybe not.

Are you saying WLP is to the NRA, as Putin is to the Russian Federation ??

I've been a member of the NRA for 52 years and am currently an Endowment member.  They will never get another single penny from me as long as WLP holds any level of office in the organization.  I know many, many competitive shooters who hold similar opinions.

There also are other organizations that lobby in favor of gun rights:

Gun Owners of America  www.gunowners.org
Virginia Citizens Defense Leage   VCDL - www.vcdl.org
American Suppressor Association  www.americansuppressorassociation.com

If you know of others, I'd be interested to hear about them.

Thanks!

I was a member for a couple of years and dropped out but was feeling guilty and was thinking of going back, but when I see individuals like you who have been with the NRA way more years than I say this  ??? I take note. Who/What organization is the one to support for 2nd amendment issues??

I used to think politicians made stupid gun laws because they were stupid.  Now, I know they do it as ATTRITION.

I'm a life member of the NRA but haven't donated money to them for decades.  As long as WLP is there they won't get any money from me.

But WLP needs a new bespoke suit!
