    Looks like the New York AG is going to air out the NRA's dirty laundry. I wonder what the general membership will do after what some thought to be rumors come to light.

    I prefer GOA as my pro 2 A group. I am in the nRA becaus e my clubs require membership to be in the club. wish they would get back to fighting for us instead of fighting with each other.It saddens me to see this happening to this group

    This is a political prosecution by one of the worst AGs in the country, and I say this as no fan of the NRA.

    The story is pushed by NPR, a leftist, Liberal, “news” organization

    I imagine lots of us already know NRA is rotten to the core and it's been a matter of supporting them because of their lobbying power for those of us who do. (I've stopped chipping in for Wayne's suits since '08.) None of us want our rights threatened, but those are some bad hombres doing bad hombre stuff over there. I got a feeling those folks bought a ticket for a ride they didn't expect to come.

    For those not in the know (Me), what groups ARE doing the Lords work? I hear the GOA is solid... What other options are there?

    Besides GOA I've heard some positive things about Second Amendment Foundation (saf.org) but not personally a member yet.

    2nd Amendment Foundation Life member here.....continue to work within the NRA hoping to return it to the organization it can/should be. Dissolve the NRA, and there's going to be a bloodbath with our 2nd Amendment rights.

    The one thing I've learned over the last four months is bigger isn't better. I'm doing everything I can as locally as I can and that includes protecting my 2A rights. I'm a localist!

    Folks forget - NRA is designed to work at the national level - it's up to the individual states to defend their turf.

    I'm a "lifer" in both the NRA and GOA.

    My only complaint about GOA is they have some kind of business activity located in California. I forget what it is (maybe membership activation & renewals? IDK). Anyway, my point is, why do these pro gun organizations "reward" ANY anti-gun state with renting (or owning), paying property taxes, hiring employees (& paying more state income taxes, etc.) to states that are working against them?

    For goodness sake, move pro 2A operations / organizations to states that "deserve" to have them! (BTW, same for the NRA; locate your operations and pay taxes to gun friendly states!). This schit ain't rocket science!

    Im a member of NRA GOA and FOAC (firearms owners against crime) I get more notices about what GOA and FOAC. About what they are doing than the NRA. Heck only thing i get from NRA is begging for more funds.

    I am a member of the NRA and while I don’t support everything that they do, they are still our best hope for keeping our 2A rights

    That is very true. It's not the official word, but the unofficial word at ILA was that if the state association didn't care enough to lead the charge, ILA wasn't going to waste the resources.

    I got news for some of you NRA haters. If it wasn't for them your treasured guns including your rifles and shotguns would have been melted down years ago. Just keep bashing them you are falling right into the commie's plans..
    Divide and conquer. Conservatives will never learn. That is why the democrats will win .. They always stick together..

    ^^^^^^ This bothers me to no end. Seven emails alone in the last two weeks of July so they can pay one of their fathers 90K to take some pictures. I belong and I'm more likely to remain a member with these guys out but this pi$$ed me off.

    I lay the blame on Wayne LaPierre and the Board of Directors who allowed him to run rampant over NRA. He's had everyone at the organization running scared for years. Any effort to rein him in met with disaster.

    Instead of dissolving the NRA itself, why don't they go after LaPierre, the ad agency, and the legal office instead. They are the ones who apparently pilfered the money. Oh wait. it is an election year and those filing suites are Democrats and they know how much money the NRA put into the Trump campaign. Not a fan of the NRA myself but this seems very politically motivated at a very convenient time.
    Can they actually DISSOLVE the NRA anyway? In our legal system you normally go after the guilty parties, not the organization.

    Spokes I get it and I'm sure the left has their fair share of problems to deal with as well. This is the problem with the whole system is people willing to overlook transgressions as long as they get what they want in the end. What it should boil down to is right and wrong and if this is true then what they did is wrong. In the event that it's BS then that is wrong and those people should be held accountable. I'm so tired of all the lying and scheming by people that have more than 90% of the people in the world. Everybody is getting over on the backs of the working stiffs in the world which I'm guessing most of us are and we're just to blind to see it. This is why it's so hard to give anything to charity because a large percentage never gets to where it was supposed to go. As I said in my previous post I'm doing everything I can on the local level because there's more accountability. Rant over!
