    I'm an NRA life member (due to national competition 40 years ago), and I say BURN'EM! Completely corrupt. No effort to reform themselves. I only stay a member because a) costs them (I haven't paid dues in 40 years, just that initial life member fee), I continue to get the magazine monthly for free, good tech articles but also I can keep an eye on their crazy opinions, and b) I have voting rights for board members (but useless due to nominating committee screening out anyone reasonable), hoping someday for a reasonable candidate.

    The only defense against high taxes on corporations and the rich is a rich guy in a yacht.

    Ya have to wonder about an organization that elected Oliver North as President, then kicked him out in very short order when he became aware of and then internally called the organization on its corruption. Too corrupt for Ollie North.

    Why would I wonder at all? They’ve had their big edifice headquarters for 20+ years and have raked in the cash forever. None of this is new, and gun peeps seemed to be fine with it.

    This is what the post 1970s NRA as lobbying machine is.
