First paragraph fixed below. :D
Wayne LaPierre has devoted a long time to enriching himself from the members funds. While loyal Ammoland readers can disagree with his tactics, one cannot dispute the fact that the LaPierre's wealth is much more than it was 35 years ago. That said, while LaPierre’s overall track record is dubious, his misappropriation of NRA monies should result in a warrant for his arrest, as well as multiple long term executives and board members.

It's like an executive circle jerk. Is there no one there, who even thinks about how any of these decisions look? It's no skin off of my nose any longer, but I think to really make sure everyone on the board, gets their fair share, the truck/gun giveaways, should only be open for board members.

From my vantage point, the NRA seems to be completely focused on internal issues, and has failed to join any recent "gun control" debates. The organization has become irrelevant to gun owners. Maybe I'm missing something?

I agree, the MSM always keeps the NRA front and center, but so many other 2A organizations are actually making headway in the courts, helping defend against gun grabbers. The NRA has just become a piggy bank for political candidates, but I haven’t felt like they truly represent people on the front line fights.

Judge Deals Major Blow to New York AG's Attempt to Nuke the NRA
https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa ... a-n2604049
New York Attorney Letitia James (D.) has been dealt a major setback in her corruption case against the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Justice Joel Cohen of the Supreme Court of the State of New York dismissed James’ attempt to dissolve the country’s largest gun rights group on Wednesday. He said James’ accusations of corruption primarily involved private harm to NRA members and donors, and thus did not warrant such a sweeping penalty if proven.
“In short, the Complaint does not allege the type of public harm that is the legal linchpin for imposing the ‘corporate death penalty,’” Justice Cohen wrote in his opinion. “Moreover, dissolving the NRA could impinge, at least indirectly, on the free speech and assembly rights of its millions of members.”
The judge’s ruling. Worth reading.

I've seen some folks celebrating -- elsewhere -- this decision as a great victory for the NRA. IANAL, but I had a look at the decision anyway, and my amateur reading of the decision suggests that it is nothing to celebrate.

The decision leaves intact allegations of incompetence, malfeasance, and lapses in fiduciary responsibilities by NRA leadership. These will no doubt result in legal trouble for certain individuals. Beyond individual accountability, it seems to me like the NRA as an organization is going to have to address the lack of policies, procedures, and perhaps internal controls that allowed this malfeasance to happen in the first place.

I wonder how transparent the NRA will be as they address these issues. I haven't seen any transparency at all so far.

The judge ruled against dissolution of the organization, but he highlighted the malfeasance by WLP that was sanctioned by the BoD.

The outcome, of course, is that the lawyers on both sides are being paid by the NRA, and both sides are friends of WLP.

This isn't related to the lawsuit, but it sums up what's wrong with both NRA, and Florida.

"Hammer has endorsed the man who wrote a bill, part of which the NRA is now now attempting to overturn in court (under-21 gun ownership)."

Amazing. Doubling down. It's like the man getting caught cheating, and screaming at his wife for not trusting him.
