Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

While shrieks of alarm at $40,000 Beverly Hills shopping orgies blare throughout the media, rest assured that if the lawsuit reveals information that completely exonerates LaPierre of any wrongdoing, you won't hear a peep about it.

To accuse Charles of thug tactics like you are shows you are not fully aware of the work that man has done for gun rights. In the last ten years he has achieved more for advancing second amendment issues than many people will achieve in the same field over a lifetime.
Of course. But I think what he's reacting to, and other people are reacting to, is not just specifically what Charles said, but the general absence of justification or ameliorating evidence for what's been reported. Charles, Marion, et. al. have said it's all been carefully vetted and audited, that it's "not correct." Ok, fine. But, then, what are you saying exactly? Don't stop there (unless you're forced to for political expedience). Are you saying he DIDN'T spend $39,000 on a Rodeo Drive shopping trip? That he DIDN'T make trips to the Bahamas, Palm Beach, Italy, Istanbul, etc.? If this isn't "correct," then what IS correct? Don't leave us sitting here scratching our heads, wondering what the truth is.

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

Of course the liberal media is pouncing on all of this. They smell blood. But to the undiscerning public eye, it does all look suspicious. Wayne's $39,000 shopping trip in Beverly Hills, trips to places like Bahamas, Italy, Hungary, Istanbul, etc., luxury hotel stays, $19,000 for a car and driver, etc., all paid out of membership dues. NRA members read that and think, "so that's where my $25 is going?"

Marion Hammer says the expenses have been "properly vetted," but we never see any details - no justification, no "what really happened was...." PLUS the little detail that LaPierre gets a $1.4 million annual salary. And at this point, LaPierre has been so demonized and vilified in the media, nobody takes him seriously any more, except when he's "preaching to the choir." He's been reduced in the public eye to little more than a cartoon character.

True or not, that's what's in the media, and it doesn't look good.

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

I still remember Trump's inauguration when he said "my first day in office, those gun-free zones will disappear." Uh, yeah, sure.....

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

I definitely think Wayne has outlived his usefulness. In the public eye, he is little more than a cartoon character. The NRA desperately needs new blood. Oliver North was a good possibility and now he's sadly out of the picture. I don't know who could take his place.
