  1. Ask Dick Heller (DC vs. Heller) how well they treated him at the beginning of his suit. You are correct that they’re no friends of anything other than your wallet.
    (they actively tried to stop his suit at the beginning, because if guns become legal, they lose their job)
    I’m a close personal friend of his, and even closer to his wife (she has my kidney)

    • LaPierre purged Chris Cox in June of 2019. Then the NRA accused him of doing exactly what LaPierre had done.
      Talk about an irredeemable hot mess, that’s the NRA.

  2. There are a few real gun rights organizations, and NRA is not one of them. I send my annual tax deductible political contribution every year to Oregon Firearms Federation PAC. OFF is one of several “no compromise” second amendment organizations.
    As for DC vs. Heller, I’ve read the entire SCOTUS transcript, as well as the Chicago vs. McDonald decisions. I was pleased to discover that for the most part, Supreme Court decisions are written in English and are not that hard to read.

  3. Fuck ‘em.
    I’m a life member, but fuck ‘em. Did the LM thing years ago for IIRC $600 when they had some sale. I keep the membership because high NRA numbers discomfit the enemy, but never another dime to the NRA.

    And +1 to Idahohunter.

      • LOL…I’m a Patron member…ask me 😉
        To fleece even more, they added several layers above that to entice you for that next level.
        Once I found out what they did to Heller, they lost any fuhrer 😉 support from me.

      • No no, I knew what I was getting into with the NRA. They’re worse than ineffectual, and run by grifters. But:

        My point was that the Left and the Press (But I repeat myself) use NRA membership numbers as a proxy for overall 2A support in the US. THAT’s why I did it. I’ve been conned before, and probably will be again at some point, but not by the NRA.

        Finally, the $600 is a sunk cost (and a lot less than the usual Life price) and I could afford it without taking food off of the table or anything. It’s not trivial pocket change either (heck you could probably get 100 rounds of .556 for $600 these days), but worth it to me.

        If nothing else, this incident alone was worth it. I was walking to lunch with the Pretty Korean Girl when some antifa-looking guy with a clipboard tried to get us to sign some petition for more gun control. He was wearing an anti-Trump T shirt. “No. Go away. Trump supporters here.” The guy stared at us mind blown (how can nonwhites be pro-Orange Man?) Then I jerked a thumb toward my own chest, “Also, NRA Life Member.” The guy physically recoiled a step and put an arm up, like a movie vampire from the cross. When we came back from lunch 30 min later he was gone. Bwahaha.

  4. How in the fuck is the NRA filing for bankruptcy at a time when firearms sales
    are at record highs? I’ve read for the past several Wayne Lapierre is a shitty
    manager and rumor has it that he is a corrupt POS. His sole aim is to amass
    power and money. Moving to Texas is not going to stop this downhill slide.
    Put a real pro-2A businessman at the helm and they will recover, if not, they
    will go the way of the Boy Scouts!

  5. Another lobby group – Money, Money, Money. People put corrupt politicians on their list – More evil are the “patriots” that claim to fight for you but instead hold your arms back so you may not defend yourself from the pummeling. Wayne should be before pelosis on anyone’s list. – examples matter

  6. The NRA hasn’t been a real 2A defense organization since they backed the NFA in 1934. They’ve done nothing but cave on EVERY PIECE of new gun control legislation in every state and federal legislature since then. After the revelations about LaPierre that came out over the last couple of years, they can kiss my balls.

    • Yes, the NRA is behind most of the gun control legislation today, and have been responsible for all that passed Congress. I’ve been a life member for 30 years, and it’s been nearly that long since I sent them money. I bought the life membership to vote for Neal Knox, and quit supporting the NRA when they dumped him. I’d resign if they gave refunds.

  7. One of Biden’s promises (or the puppet masters behind the facade) has been to destroy the NRA. Fine. They can claim that little victory if they want to. Until Wayne is purged from the organization, moving to Texas means absolutely nothing.
    There are legit gun rights organizations. egorr mentions GOA above. Gun Owners of America still has John Lott as the force behind it, so I’d trust it to be legit. Others I can’t be sure of without due diligence. Do your own research folks.

    • I am good friends with the brother of a man who is upper management at GOA. Has been since their founding. I can guarantee you they are absolutely legit. Their main problem is lack of money. Unfortunately it all gets Hoovered up by the NRA.
      GOA’s people are not overpaid like the NRA’s are. They run on a shoestring and concentrate on spending their money on supporting candidates that think like they do.
      GOA people are shooters, not golfers.

  8. Wayne LaPierre has been using this “non profit” as a personal slushfund. I let my membership lapse moons ago. Read about it previously on a few websites. He is a punk, without help from his liberal punk friends.

  9. Well, life member since…1969. Thru the 1% kickback on my NRA credit card, I donated well over two thousand dollars to the NRA. It makes me feel good that LaPierre was able to buy a couple of designer silk ties with my 25+ years of donations.

  10. Good. Good ridence. Bunch of spineless weasels. May Wayne and his buddies all die a painful death of gonorrhea of the throat supplied by the other whores in DC.

    Switched to GOA a few years ago.
