NRA Claims it's Running out of Money. How do you feel about that?

The pro-gun lobby — which gave a record $21 million to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign — said it’s headed to the poorhouse because a state agency told insurers to cut ties with the association and slapped a $7 million fine on NRA insurance broker Lockton Cos.

Personally, of all the horrors that could befall this country, the NRA going completely out of business is not one of them.

    IF that is true (I read their press release, Mr LaPierre nearly invoked the Apocalypse) then perhaps their political exuberance has served them poorly. 

    IMO, the NRA has far overstepped it’s purpose, become less a community for gun enthusiasts than a fiercely Conservative SuperPAC spreading propaganda and enriching lobbyists.

    I guess they finally pissed off enough people.

    I surely hope people have finally gotten wise to them.  Read somewhere that LaPierre "earned" more than $5 million in compensation last year.  I don't donate to any organization that pays it's execs that much money.

    Fair to assume the revenue problem threatens Mr LaPierre’s compensation.

    I'll be sure to set up a GoFundMe for him if he loses his job.

    I know they are going to extremes when they started sending me mailings and applications. I don't even own a gun, nor have I ever contacted them for any reason. And...I'm not a trump supporter.
