Save the Second board member, Rob Pincus, was subpoenaed to appear on June 28th, before legal representation of the NRA – both staff lawyers and Brewer and Associate Representatives. Ackerman McQueen were represented by their attorneys via video teleconference. The subpoena was part of the NRA’s case against Ackerman McQueen, and Rob’s subpoena centered on how he came into possession of what The NRA has deemed “leaked” Insider information, before they were made public, regarding several practices by and allegations toward the NRA.
Write a single letter, email, or message a day. If you can afford all three, do it! In your messages, instead of pointing out the flaws and failures (and what we already know) be direct and be simple. Tell your directors you want them to fix the NRA and how to do it. There are 76 NRA Board of Directors and today (June 27, 2019) there are 76 days until the September NRA Board of Directors meeting. Let’s go straight down the list.
A question I have to ask myself regarding activism via social media: am I truly being ACTIVE if I am just posting negativity, or am I simply using digital graffiti to say “Change the WORLD” without putting in any real work?
You may already know that there are seventy-six NRA BoD. That’s right, seventy-six that control the direction of our NRA. How many can you name? How many have you met? How many have you contacted? How many have replied to you? Let’s say you mailed a letter to each director, how much would that cost?
“We’re trying to get the attention of all American Gun Owners focused on the fact that it’s okay to have an open discussion about some of the concerns and, honestly, some of the problems that exist inside of the NRA.”
Why don’t we trust the Board of Directors to solve the problems facing the National Rifle Association? Listen to this long time board member’s thoughts on control, secrecy and whether or not we members should be involved.
Following the 2019 NRA Members Meeting something had to be done. I had just debated an NRA past President. I, who have never been so much as the president of a book club, just debated Jim Porter!
I find it terribly ironic that a bunch of self-proclaimed freedom-loving, Constitution-defending, supposed civil rights activists would balk at dissension from among the ranks. That is not very American.
If the NRA can survive the current tumult and be restored to its former place of prominence, it will be in a much better position to defend our Second Amendment rights. That’s the motivation behind Save the Second. Before it’s all said and done, we hope to bring integrity, transparency, and accountability back to the nation’s oldest civil rights organization.
