At a meeting of a large body that uses RONR (Rules of Order, Newly Revised, aka "Robert's Rules"), it is simple to monkeywrench everything to a standstill. One need only look at this past weekend's Libertarian Party National [s]Convention[/s] Circus to see that in action.FrogFan wrote: ↑Mon May 30, 2022 11:03 am The actions of their president -- who we know well -- ruling uncomplimentary resolutions as "out of order", suggest that the NRA has become an organization dedicated to the enrichment and entertainment of its officers and board, and only tangentially interested in its membership or 2A issues generally.
Parliamentary Inquiries, Points of Personal Privilege, Questions of the Chair, Appealing the Ruling of the Chair, Calls for Division, Calls for Reconsideration, Motions to Adjourn... all these can turn a five second process into a five hour nightmare. Especially when being doing by multiple people.
RONR is suited for small bodies, and falls apart quickly in larger groups if there is any serious contention within the body.
It does not surprise me at all that the current president just made up something not contained in RONR. He has also sworn that there's absolutely nothing wrong with the NRA's finances, and the Audit Committee found no evidence of wrongdoing.
And, another good write-up:
