    Moderator Note - Remember this is ACTIVISM and not General. The rules here are stickied and more focused on having constructive information presented to advance the 2A. I know everyone here is capable of doing this even with controversial topics you feel passionate about, but we expect EVERYONE to act like adults in Activism.

    President Carolyn Meadows
    The National Rifle Association of America 11250 Waples Mill Road
    Fairfax, VA 22030

    Secretary John Frazier
    The National Rifle Association of America 11250 Waples Mill Road
    Fairfax, VA 22030

    The National Rifle Association of America Board of Directors The National Rifle Association of America
    11250 Waples Mill Road
    Fairfax, VA 22030

    Ladies and Gentlemen:
    It is with profound disappointment that each of us hereby tenders our resignation from the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association, effective immediately.

    We proudly agreed to serve as board members of the NRA because of our steadfast belief in the Association’s core mission of protecting the Second Amendment and its leadership’s commitment to serving its members with honesty, integrity and transparency. While our belief in the NRA’s mission remains as strong today as ever, our confidence in the NRA’s leadership has been shattered.

    As Board members, we are duty bound to act with care and in the best interests of the NRA and its mission. Proper discharge of that duty compels us to speak up and take action when we become aware of matters within the Association that run counter to its mission, governing principles, policies, or the law. Over the past several months, there have been numerous, highly- publicized allegations of impropriety leveled against the Association and certain members of its executive leadership team. In exercising our oversight responsibilities as Board Members, we have sought information and requested certain actions be taken with respect to these allegations, only to be rebuffed at every turn. We had expected – or at least hoped— that the executive leadership team would recognize the seriousness of these allegations and work with us in a constructive and transparent manner to address our concerns and minimize any further harm to the Association. Instead, we have been stonewalled, accused of disloyalty, stripped of committee assignments and denied effective counsel necessary to properly discharge our responsibilities as Board members.

    As a result of the foregoing, we are left with no other choice but to resign as members of the Board of Directors. In doing so, however, we hope that our action will serve as a catalyst for much needed reform within the NRA so that it can return its focus to the mission which we remain unwaveringly committed -- protecting the Constitution of the United States and especially, the Second Amendment.

    Sincerely,
    Esther Schneider Sean Maloney Timothy Knight

    I was so happy to meet LaPierre in 2015 at SHOT...when the NRA called me for funding two days ago I told them I will not donate a dime again until WLP steps down.

    Have to wonder if there will be any NRA "left" when this all shakes out.

    Do we have a count on how many board members have stepped down? This the third or fourth resignation letter I have read since this scandel started? IIRC there are 76 members on the board.

    I agree, WLP is a stain on the organization and needs to go. Whether his ego will allow that is another story.

    Looks like I expected too much and the moderator that closed this before was correct.
