Are The NRA’s Internal Struggles FINALLY Over?

The National Rifle Association has had more than its fair share of controversy over the last few years. Between anti-2A zealots targeting the NRA as the perceived source of the pro-2A movement in America and internal difficulties and power struggles in the organization, some wondered if the NRA was going to survive.

Well, recently a big announcement came from an official in the NRA what will likely surprise a number of people, and it will probably cause some people to wonder if the NRA’s troubles are finally over. Michael Clements writes,

The longtime face of the National Rifle Association (NRA), Wayne LaPierre, announced his resignation from the Second Amendment advocacy group on Jan. 5.

Citing health reasons for his departure, Mr. LaPierre said he is proud of his tenure with the organization and is looking forward to continuing to stand up for Americans’ Second Amendment rights.

“With pride in all that we have accomplished, I am announcing my resignation from the NRA,” Mr. LaPierre is quoted in a statement posted on the NRA’s website.

“I’ve been a card-carrying member of this organization for most of my adult life, and I will never stop supporting the NRA and its fight to defend Second Amendment freedom. My passion for our cause burns as deeply as ever.”

The announcement of Mr. LaPierre’s resignation, effective Jan. 31, came just days before proceedings in a corruption lawsuit filed against the NRA, Mr. LaPierre, and other NRA executives by Democratic New York Attorney General Letitia James are set to begin next week.

Now, many people, both in the anti-2A and in the pro-2A movements seem to think that most, maybe all, of the NRA’s difficulties over the last few years are completely LaPierre’s fault.

Is that the case? I don’t know, and it seems unlikely that we’ll ever have a definitive answer about that (after all, historians are still arguing about what were the real causes of wars that happened over a hundred years ago, and you would think that we have all of the relevant information about that by now).

Regardless of what your personal opinions of LaPierre or the NRA are, though, we can all agree that we need to all continue to move ahead to work to educate people and to preserve our Second Amendment rights.
