Can't the members of the NRA just sign a petition and kick him out?

Lol, no. They basically voted that option out at the meetings in 2019 IIRC.

No. The NRA leadership changed the rules so that we have to play it their way. Oh - and the possibilities of who to put on the board is from a selection they decide by themselves.

I have an idea, set up a fund that will hold money in escrow to be released upon the removal of Wayne, Hammer, Exec Board, etc. Then promote that far and wide.

Once people see the millions sitting there, it will be an obvious fiduciary duty to act.

It will also send a message to the anti gun crowd that the NRA is one step away from being a juggernaut again.

People actually voted for the by law change because FWLP said it was a good thing.

It was time for this.

I actually got a call from the NRA after I replied to an email with: "Is Wayne still there?  I have let mine and all four of my childrens membership expire.  When Wayne is gone I will reconsider."  

A few minutes later caller ID came up with a number from Virginia.  Short version of conversation. "We know and you are one of many saying this."

I believe closing statements are Monday and he's working around the clock to get things ready. The more the membership can do to be heard, the more power we will have in how this is resolved.

Make sure to spread the word for folks to CANCEL AND REQUEST REFUNDS on any membership payments they have recently made and stop any and all donations to the NRA!!!

I quit donating 3 years ago. One person you need to remove before even Wayne, is Marion Hammer. I have no idea what power she has over WLP and the board. WLP and the board can start to agree to something and if Marion Hammer doesn't like it, it does not happen

In. The NRA could be a serious powerhouse for peeling back decades of rotten gun laws.

Let's hope this goes somewhere.

I increasingly believe that Wayne isn't going anywhere unless it's in a casket or a pair of handcuffs.

The majority of the Board simply doesn't care, or is implicated in wrongdoing themselves.

If not and no chance of an order (meaningless as may be) to repay stolen dues......I'm not IN anymore.

For an Average Joe like me, I look around and I see FPC, SAF, GOA, and the state-level orgs fighting court battles and racking up wins, and all I ever hear from the NRA is about their own internal political and financial issues. I don't see them actually fighting the fight. Of course I'm still a member, but... I have to wonder what I'm getting for my money.

There are a lot of other places to throw our money and support to. Do they not understand this?
Link Posted: 5/2/2021 3:22:14 PM EDT
Can we start with bombing their social media posts begging for money. Half the comments are filled with don’t tread on me guys ball licking the NRA about how good they are. Outside of this board I think a lot of this goes unnoticed.
Link Posted: 5/2/2021 3:22:31 PM EDT
I wasn’t aware you could request refunds on memberships...

Time to take back the NRA.

Get rid of WLP.

I just don't believe anything will be done.  I don't even open my American Rifleman anymore.  It goes straight in the trash.  Oh, and so does my dad's copy (he's been dead for 5 years) and I've let those idiots know it more than a few times.  Just another waste of money.

They never bothered to call me back after I wrote "Strip Wayne and Hammer of every single cent they own and send them to a Turkish prison for the rest of their lives and I'll consider renewing".  I quit receiving renewal notices as well so I must have hit a nerve.

We lifetime members have ZERO effect on the WLP situation.    Last time I sent something, I got the "we appreciate your concern, blah blah blah".

I donated $100 to the cause.....and used my BofA CC to do it.  Commie bastards, I will purchase freedom with it even though they don't like it.

As a note normally would trash this card but longest line of credit....
