    Thats why you should donate to NRAILA.org instead. It is a different entity.

    Only on paper. Remember, Chris Cox, the former head of the NRA-ILA, was canned because Wayne LaPierre wanted to raid the ILA's piggy bank and Cox objected (and correctly so). So LaPierre got rid of him and installed another toady.

    The entire NRA organization is rotten to the core. I'm a life member, but they won't see another penny from me (other than maintaining my instructor credentials) until they dump LaPierre and most of the current board of directors, and restore the by-laws to give the members control of our organization.

    Update: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...nkruptcy-judge

    The bankruptcy hearing has apparently been concluded, and now we get to wait for the judge's decision. My private guess is that he'll throw out the bankruptcy filing. First, the NRA claimed immediately after they filed that their finances were in great shape. Second, the filing was made in Texas, and the NRA doesn't have any legitimate ties to Texas. Third -- which I learned only from this article -- LaPierre & Co. didn't even notify the board of directors about the bankruptcy filing until after it had been made.

    That last point is significant. The role of a board of directors is to direct -- to set the direction for the organization. The role of the chief executive officer is to execute -- to carry out the plan established by the board of directors. For a CEO to engineer a bankruptcy proceeding without first consulting the board of directors is, IMHO, unprecedented. If I were a judge, I would view that as proof positive that the board does not function as a board, but only as a rubber stamp for LaPierre & Co.

    Update: As some people (including yours truly) expected, the federal judge in Texas has tossed out the NRA's attempt to use bankruptcy as a shield aginst the NY State lawsuit.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime...?ocid=msedgntp

    An interesting factoid that came out of this case was that LaPierre didn't tell the board of directors or his own chief financial officer about the bankruptcy until after it had been filed. Small wonder the judge said he found that "shocking." Personally, I think "shocking" is too mild a word. I simply can't imagine the executive vice-president of any organization taking a major step like that without having had a lengthy, in-depth discussion with the board of directors. And bankruptcy is a financial proceeding. How can you enter into a bankruptcy proceeding without first consulting the chief financial officer?
