Have seen a couple of posts on Twittah and Instagram alluding to rumors that Wayne will announce his retirement next week.

Bunk?  I remember reading something a year or two ago about how the Cox faction was angling to get Wayne out. Seems like Cox has been a little more vocal over the last couple of years.

Interesting. My wife and I are NRA employees and have heard nothing. But.....we don't really pay attention to the inter office politics.

Well then how about we get NoloContrendre in there, since he got screwed in the voting.

If we have to break it into 'factions', we have:

Don't rock the boat.
Attack anyone that rocks the boat.
Better to sink the boat than rock the boat.
A mild, slow, rhythmic swaying, but not rocking, might be acceptable, but only in tiny doses
I went on shore when the boat docked and I don't know where I am or where the boat is.

Wayne is 67 years old. 
The growth in size and clout of the NRA (and the expansion of gun rights) during his tenure is simply amazing.
No one works forever and if it is true that he is going I wish him well.

(In before usual suspects attempt to trash him.)

Dont forget the "Lets fuck up highower competition" faction, which apparently is quite influential if not large

It would be a good time. He would be going out on top.

Initially when I first started working I ignored all of these kind of rumors, but I have learned over the years that many of them are based on some kind of fact.  Like everything else in life it is kind of like a game of rumors.

he has done an excellent job over the years, good he have done better?

nobody is perfect, and it appears that most of the left hates him, so he is ok in my book

I'm betting that has had little to do with him.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Sad news if he retires.

I wish him a great retirement, but NO ONE PERSON has exploded more liberal heads with just the mention of his name than Wayne LaPierre.
