Let me be clear: I support Wayne because I know he did nothing wrong and is the subject of a malicious, deceptive campaign by a former NRA contractor because he ordered them to comply with a financial review and they refused. Perhaps if you took the time to read beyond the anti-NRA propaganda, you’d learn that some of this contractor’s other large clients are also reviewing their bills following NRA’s lead.
In April of this year, this same contractor, in an effort to keep NRA from pushing for the financial review of their billings to NRA, delivered Wayne LaPierre an ultimatum – or more accurately – a threat – either resign immediately or they would attack him publicly. This information is all available in the public realm. You should read the court documents rather than listen to people who have an agenda to take down Wayne.
LET ME BE CLEAR, no one is compromising away your gun rights. In my personal opinion, the only people who would compromise away your gun rights are no longer at NRA.
I support Wayne LaPierre but not because of his monumental and significant accomplishments on behalf of the NRA and our cause in the past. I support Wayne because of what I know he can do for our cause moving forward and what will happen to the NRA if he leaves – especially during this critical time.
Leaving the NRA in the hands of a bunch of novices who haven’t done 1% of what Wayne has helped the NRA accomplish is a pure recipe for disaster.
You may think they’re well meaning but they likely couldn’t figure out how to run the NRA or a 50 state legislative operation, period.
SAVETHESECOND.org is a brand new organization that has never done anything to save the Second Amendment. It was created to oust Wayne and take control of NRA. From all appearances it just an extension of the 22 year-old failed coup attempt by led by Neal Knox, the father of Jeff Knox who still carries a grudge because his father failed to get Wayne’s job 22 years ago.
It’s the NRA that has been fighting (and winning against) gun bans, ammo bans, gun registration schemes, plus passing numerous pro self defense and pro gun laws.
Where would we be without the NRA And Wayne LaPierre? You really don’t have go that far back to find that one pro gun group even agreed to the Obama and Bloomberg universal background check scheme after Sandy Hook! And, while they put out sweeping press statements and declarations, the reality is that they can do so only because no one of consequence takes them seriously.
The ONLY pro-gun group that really has the wherewith-all to protect your Second Amendment rights is the NRA. So I would advise to think long and hard before you side with anyone else. You need NRA. Our country needs NRA. And Wayne LaPierre is the ONLY person who can lead us through this hate-storm.
