We have reached the conclusion of the #76in76 campaign.
The campaign was a call for you to contact each of the seventy-six NRA board of directors before the Fall NRA Directors meeting which is now on September 14th in Virginia. For the campaign we used data that we had pieced together on who the board members are and what means of contact information we could find. You can view the NRA Board of Director list and information here.
We started on June 27th with Alan Cors and finished Monday September 9th with William Satterfield, asking you to contact your directors and fix our NRA. If you aren’t aware of the problems plaguing the NRA go to Why Reform.
During this campaign we witnessed six directors resign. Along the way we encountered new revelations of malfeasance, corruption and other terrible things that do not belong inside our NRA (such as the mansion, wasteful luxury travel, Josh Powell’s sexual harassment settlement, Marion Hammer’s illegal loans and more.) We also saw more people calling for the NRA to reform. David Dell’Aquila even filed a class action lawsuit against the NRA.
The 76 in 76 campaign was a small campaign that led up to this week. This week is a very important week for the history of the NRA. It is the Fall Board Meeting. Just before the Spring Board meeting in Indianapolis this year, Jeff Knox wrote and opinion on ammoland titled:
NRA’s Future: Only Two Options, Can the BOD Save Us?
Mr. Knox’s prediction 141 days ago seem to be coming into vivid reality, today. I still have hope that the Board of Directors can be the solution but in order for them to be the solution any directors that are on the fence between the LaPierre loyalist and real reform need to be persuaded.
It is not too late to contact these directors and if you want to see the NRA reformed so that these instances of corruption do not occur again, please, stop what you are doing and write as many emails, facebook messages, tweets, smoke signals or other means of communication using the list to do it!
