    My Response To The Current Crop Of Emails

    Wanting me to extend my membership. I sent them some advice. It could be more valuable if they would only use it.


    In regard to the recent frequent solicitation for me to extend my membership, I find it necessary to withhold my dues until Mr. LaPierre truly demonstrates his dedication to this organization by stepping down an the leader and therefore, the face of this organization. In discussions with my fellow firearms owners I am repeatedly told that others will not renew their membership unless Mr. LaPierre steps down. There is no rational argument I can offer and I foresee a membership decline unless a meaningful leadership change is undertaken. Regards, Yours Truly.

    Maybe if more people send these in instead of their dues, they might get the message.

    Send them a letter of disapproval , though. You've paid for the association. They may get the message with enough letters and make it yours again.

    I'll not set fire to any more bux until an organization demonstrates to me in the public media that they are doing our work. It won't be praise from them , but an appraisal of the effect with a publicly displayed responsible organization. The only organization that is getting the press now is the one I want to see changed.

    I agree with the OP. Change must come from the top.

    I would not be surprised to see Wayne resign by the end of the year. But wonder if the NRA BOD cabal of cronyism would replace Wayne with a true agent of change or just another swampster? NRA president, Carolyn Meadows, has made it clear in no uncertain terms that Wayne has overwhelming support from the BOD which tells me they don't support change at all. So if/when they throw Wayne under the bus for political expediency, what are the chances it would make any difference? That's not to say Wayne doesn't need to go, he does. Just sayin'.

    More than Wayne needs to go, sadly, the organization has lost it's mission. Needs a complete overhaul from the top to the janitor.

    It better, as it's the only organization that most of America recognizes.
