Rob Pincus spoke with NPR’s Here & Now on August 23rd to speak about why it is important to American Gun Owners that the National Rifle Association begin earnest reforms and get out from under the current cloud of scandal surrounding Wayne LaPierre and the Board of Directors.
The revelations confirm the rumors. Issues with retirement plans (except for Wayne’s, as he’s taken Millions of Dollars out early), loans to “The NRA” from its affiliated entities (all while the apologist are still asking for people to fund those supposedly separate entities), and spending that far outpaced actual revenue have all been widely reported from internal sources openly and in whispers for a long time.
Many people have said that things will “get worse before they get better” in regard to the Crisis inside the NRA. We feel Strongly that the only way to get to the “better” part is by speaking openly and directly about the worst parts of the crisis. Without acknowledging the very real problems, we will not be able to advance the solutions to reform the NRA.
Adam Kraut has released a letter explaining why he is not taking the opportunity to sit on the NRA Board of Directors.
I don’t blame AdamKraut for not taking the seat. The NRA is not going to get fixed from the inside. That has become clear. The question now is Who will change it from the outside?
STS Board Member Rob Pincus joined John Patton on The Gun Collective last week to discuss why Reforming the NRA is important and what our Five Points of Reform are all about.
