    Great Podcast MB! To steal one of your phrases, Wayne LaPierre has always struck me as someone who was more worried about his dacha by the lake then with protecting the 2A. So my question is how do we kick WL out without the NRA imploding? What is your take on Oliver North? Is his attempt to out WL genuine or is he just a shill for Ack McQ ? This is such as mess.

    I do not believe LaPierre can be removed at this point. The next question is, will any changes be made by LaPierre and/or the Board to address concerns without losing face?

    The NRA has enough enemies (inside and outside the gun community) without collapsing on itself into a black hole. We all lose if that happens. Yet, the anti-NRA gun owners on the internet forums seem delighted about this recent conflict. I think some of them actually believe 5 million people will suddenly flock to GOA and all will be right with the world. Fantasy-land.

    I have not visited the blog/podcast for a while and missed this when it came out. Thank you very much for speaking out about this hot mess the NRA has become. I was wondering when anyone like you was going to speak out. I did not renew this year because this mess had gone on far too long. The old “Gun Zone” blog by Dean Spier exposed me to the corruption several years ago. Clearly things got worse. The last few years when I did renew it was with grave misgivings. Lets hope they clean house fully. So far, that’s not happened.
