Just the opposite, in fact.
But the current board and the current bureaucracy is not the NRA that was there when I became aware of WHY we need an NRA and why I joined over 25 years ago.
I’m a Life Member. A Firearms Instructor.
The NRA no longer serves it’s core mission, but rather serves the NRA….and now we find out that the NRA served, to a limited extent, the board members instead of the rest of us. .
In other words, the NRA uses our money, not to serve the members of the NRA, but to enrich the(some of) the board members, and to enlarge and employ a bureaucracy that doesn’t have the members needs,wants,and issues as the primary reason for existence.In fact, I believe that the current management simply sees the NRA members not as a reason to exist, but simply as a source of cash.
There have been many questionable decisions by the current NRA management. Many that were, in my opinion, wrong. This does not change the fact that they for us, and with us, are a very powerful right organization.
I am, a member of the NRA. I think they are an important part of the shooting community….
But we need some housecleaning. Some sanity. Some reasonableness and some better guidance. Simply some better management. Yes, I’d like to see WLP gone. I’ve said that for years. I don’t know, however, who to replace him with….
The current issues can be fixed….If the Board gets it’s act together and removes the people responsible and chooses to fix it.
If not, our most important advocate for our rights will fade away.
I think that the board is failing the members of the NRA.
