In the linked article, it details everything from how greed, lying, cheating and outrageous payouts and salaries rule the day.
In essence, you’ll learn you have no voice in the organization you trust to protect your rights. Their priorities have NEVER been about machine guns, silencers, or even semi-auto “AK-47’s”, which past NRA President Heston said we had no business owning.
Check out Wayne’s salary and payouts. MILLIONS of dollars a year and their internal struggles are about money and power. Your rights are nothing more than a marketing tool to gain more money and power. This is why they’re backing the ATF rewrite on what a machine gun is, it’s to clamp down on semi-autos, which they don’t think you should own, and to use it as leverage (scare tactics) to extort more money out of you.
Interesting little tidbit:
The core issue was how the NRA’s PR company, Ackerman McQueen, was drawing millions of dollars a year from the organization and improperly controlling NRA staff. The Board directed Wayne to sever ties with Ack-Mac, and Wayne promised to do so, then claimed to have done so, by bringing in a new PR company called Mercury Group.
The “new” PR company turned out to be a wholly owned subsidiary of Ack-Mac, with all of the same players in all of the same positions, still bleeding the association of the same millions of dollars.
Originally after Vegas, the NRA came out and supported regulation on bump-stocks:
The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semiautomatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations. In an increasingly dangerous world, the NRA remains focused on our mission: strengthening Americans’ Second Amendment freedom to defend themselves, their families and their communities. To that end, on behalf of our 5 million members across the country, we urge Congress to pass National Right-to-Carry reciprocity, which will allow law-abiding Americans to defend themselves and their families from acts of violence.”
