Yep, this out-moded leadership model is still far too common. NRA Leadership should serve the members, not the other way around. Authoritarian, arrogant leaders only serve to alienate those that they need - and they never realize it until its typically too late.
You're so optimistic. You actually think authoritarian leaders are aware enough to realize it.😜

This whole NRA thing is such an utter mess. The only positive thing I can say about it is that the group has major consistency. I seriously hoped that they might actually be able to turn themselves around. Yeah, the odds of that happening were about as high as the current white house resident declaring the NFA illegal, but one can dream, right?

NRA: First They Circled the Wagons, Now NRA is Circling the Drain

The “leadership” of the National Rifle Association, are either thoroughly corrupt, delusional, or both. They held their Annual Meeting of Members on October 2nd, 2021, of this year, and the event was described by the new President of the Board of Directors, Charles Cotton as follows:

“The proceedings in Charlotte were an amazing celebration of NRA fellowship and freedom. Under the direction of Wayne LaPierre, the NRA is strong and secure – well-positioned to chart its course for the future.”

Cotton and LaPierre conspired to keep the meeting as sparsely attended as possible, moving the scheduled meeting from Houston to Charlotte, then not promoting it at all, and finally, setting up a ticketing service that reported the event as “sold out” almost as soon as the “tickets” were made available. Nothing about the meeting ever appeared in any of the NRA’s magazines, but they did, in a minimal nod toward technical compliance with New York law, publish two or three small notices in a local Fairfax, Virginia weekly newspaper. Information was belatedly added to the official website, in such a way as to be hard to find, then a few emails were sent out, but apparently only to relatively new Annual Members, who would be the least likely to be concerned about all of the accusations of financial chicanery in the Association, and who can’t even vote on most matters at a meeting.
I am bitter clinging, irredeemable, deplorable, an enemy of the state and a Neanderthal, according to the left.

I found this part of the article insightful: "At some point in the very near future, NRA’s $2 million-a-month attorney, Bill Brewer, will decide that there’s no more money for him to suck out of the Association, so he’ll call a special meeting to inform the Executive Committee that the evidence compiled by the NY AG is too strong and overwhelming and that the Association’s best course will be to try and settle the case."

As you may recall, it was my criticism of the hiring of Brewer that got me kicked off the other forum by Cotton's butt buddy, Keith B., proving that "cancel culture" is not just the purview of the left.

Unfortunately, there is no joy in being right on this issue. I am confident that the GOA and the SAF will rapidly grow to fill the void created by the self-marginalized NRA.

Probably the first time Brewer’s invoices are past due and the excuses from the top guys start. Then Brewer can return to having drinks with his Democrat friends bragging about how much money he siphoned from the NRA to Democrat coffers.

Weren't we told that Brewer's politics do not matter, he was the best available?

A couple things I have realized. Those that rub elbows constantly with politicians, become slimy just like politicians.

If the NRA were to get every anti gun law revoked, they would lose the fear factor for collecting money. So get small victories instead of fighting for whats right to keep the money flowing. Or give in a little and claim the NRA just needs more money to fight. Very similar to the Republicans who always need more to grow a backbone.
Why is it so hard for politicians to understand "shall not be infringed?"
