NRA Special Meeting in Dallas 3/14
https://onlygunsandmoney.com/2021/03/03 ... eting.html
Rumors started on Sunday with a report by Dan Zimmerman of TTAG about Wayne LaPierre’s speech to CPAC. After saying that Wayne’s speech was old and stale, he concluded with this teaser, “The good news is, we happen to know that the NRA is actively seeking his replacement.”
The NRA President has called for a special meeting of the Board of Directors to take place on Sunday, March 14, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. in Dallas, Texas. The sole purpose of the meeting is to provide a briefing to the Board regarding the NRA’s reorganization plan and the legal matters overseen by the Special Litigation Committee, and to take any necessary action directly related to those matters.
The NRA Board of Directors and Executive Council and will meet at the Omni Dallas Hotel, 555 South Lamar Street, Dallas, Texas 75202, (214) 744-6664.
As the after the fact approval of many expenditures by the Board’s Audit Committee makes clear, the NRA Board has a history of approving things after the fact that should have had explicit pre-approval. This could be one of those ex post facto approvals. I would be the most surprised person in the room if it was actually to announce a replacement to Wayne LaPierre. I just don’t see a Board packed with Wayne loyalists doing that.
UDPATE: A friend who knows the NRA bylaws far better than me just pointed out something about this special meeting. According to Article IV, Section 3 (b), while the President, the Executive Committee, or the majority of the Board can call a special meeting, it has a notification requirement.
From the NRA Bylaws:
Notice of the time, place, and object of such special meetings shall be mailed to each Director at least 30 days before the date of holding such meetings.
Now I know that the NRA Bylaws don’t mean much to Wayne and company but you would think that given both the dissolution lawsuit and the bankruptcy proceedings that dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s just might be the smart way to go. I don’t know if the Board is getting their advice from William Brewer III, NRA General Counsel John Frazer, or the Board’s attorney Wit Davis but whomever said it was OK to ignore the bylaws either doesn’t give a big rat’s ass or is an idiot.
Either way, anything voted on and decided in this Special Meeting of the Board could be challenged in court as being invalid due to violating the bylaws
I am bitter clinging, irredeemable, deplorable, an enemy of the state and a Neanderthal, according to the left.
