This past weekend the September issue of the NRA’s American Rifleman was published and began arriving in Member’s mailboxes. Beyond the excellent articles on the 350 Legend (pg. 45) and the tips for Sticking Glock Mags (pg. 40) is NRA President Carolyn Meadows’ President’s Column, “My Take On NRA’s Leader, Wayne LaPierre” (pg. 14).
“SPURRED ON BY THE ANTI-GUN MEDIA, THESE DESTRUCTIVE FORCES ACCUSE WAYNE OF AN EVER-CHANGING LITANY OF BASELESS OFFENSES AND CLAIM HE IS MISMANAGING THE ASSOCIATION.”
Several have suggested after reading her article that Carolyn Meadows was writing particularly about Save the Second such as what Marion Hammer, Joel Friedman and Willes Lee have already done. We have heard that all before and dispelled those lies that we somehow work for an anti-gun entity or would want to see the NRA be destroyed. Again, that is a blatant lie.
NRA President Carolyn Meadows now seems to have been caught in her own lie. You see, there is evidence on Wayne LaPierre’s mismanagement and malfeasance in our NRA. Save the Second isn’t “abetting the progressive-socialist campaign to destroy the NRA and strip away those freedoms we hold so dear.” Save the Second wants the NRA to be accountable so that it is effective in its fight for the freedoms we hold so dear.
Now, as of this morning, it is also Fox News’ Steve Hilton who calls for Wayne LaPierre to go as a result. After sharing a few bits of evidence that President Meadows omits in her column, Hilton says,
“For years Wayne has taken NRA members’ money to live the life of a king but he’s not a king. He’s the head of a nonprofit trusted by millions to use its funds to secure constitutional rights. Wayne LaPierre is an odious little grifter and it’s time for him to go.”

Save the Second
Save the Second wants a strong, relevant, effective, powerful and accountable NRA. We understand that the removal or addition of any single person does not solve the current problems in our NRA nor does it prevent future malfeasance. Save the Second has Five Goals for reforming our NRA. Corruption should have no place in our National Rifle Association of America and no one should be above accountability, especially when United States citizen’s rights are on the line.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
