They bring in $367 million a year. Less than $1 million in fraud isn’t a financial crisis. Most people can deduce that without it being spelled out. Apparently you don’t meet that standard.


Quote:
The leaked documents, the authenticity of which ABC News has not been able to verify, included letters that appear to show former NRA president Lt. Col. Oliver North, who was recently ousted amid a dispute with LaPierre, raised serious concerns with the organization's audit committee about $24 million in legal fees paid to Brewer's legal firm over the past year.

The unverified documents also include letters to LaPierre from William Winkler, chief financial officer of longtime ad agency Ackerman McQueen, seeking more information about LaPierre's personal spending through the agency -- particularly $274,965.03 in wardrobe expenses made at high-end retailer Zegna in Beverly Hills and $267,460.53 of primarily travel expenses on trips to the Bahamas, Palm Beach, New York, Los Angeles, Reno, Budapest and Italy.

The latter total also includes $13,804.84 to rent an apartment for three months in Fairfax, Virginia, that according to one letter, LaPierre "required [Ackerman McQueen] rent" and "billed to the NRA" for a young woman who, according to LinkedIn, was then an intern at the organization. She is still employed by the NRA, according to LinkedIn.

That’s still not a financial crisis. That’s debatable expenses. If he is guilty of fraud, he will be held accountable. But nothing you or anyone else has posted amounts to a financial crisis or the NRA claiming it can’t exists as the OP title states.

I sent my donation to help. I am sure all the other members will too. We know that we need the NRA to protect our 2nd amendment. This way we won’t have to drag all the anti-gunner democrats out of the house and put them against a wall and shoot them.

Wow.I think you should read up on the history of the NRA. For most of its existence, it was FOR gun control.

I don't dispute that their earlier history is a mess; I would not have been a part of the organization if I were around in those days.

Yeah, send all your money to Lapierre and continue to support his lavish lifestyle.  Way to go.

if there were no NRA, and no gun lobby, do you think gun restrictions for civilians would be far greater than they are today...maybe limitations on number of guns, or calibers, or who, or where, or maybe outright bans in all or certain places...

I just wonder how far some would take it if there were not opposition...

and would it be good for citizens if many gun related rights were stripped...

and I acknowledge on many if not most things opposing forces are generally good to keep balance...on both sides...
