(Washington Post)   You may not actually have a violin tiny enough for this one, but it's looking like the NRA's finances are going to be in the red for the fourth year in row, with its investigation into rampant fraud by top executives expanding rapidly   (washingtonpost.com) divider line

How are they still around?!

It's hard to be in the black when a significant part of your business just dried up because foreign entities aren't using you to launder money to Republicans any more.

Aww poor guys don't owe any taxes. Boo hoo!

How much of a pussy do you need to be to need a gun?

Does this mean the price of guns are going down or up?

A big one. In fact, only vagina owners should be able to carry guns. Engage.

Now that a Democrat is going to be in the White House, they'll just gin up the "he's gonna take your guns" outrage again.  Granted, Biden isn't black, so it won't be the fundraising heyday for the Obama years, but I'm sure they can denigrate the Vice President and close the gap with some extra paranoid racist cash.

They used to have an absurdly large board of directors. Looking closely, it was a few firearms industry executives, and the rest were largely washed-up conservative celebrities warming a chair for their hand-out.

Join and support GOA.

I let my NRA membership lapse a few years ago.  Instead, I became a life member of the Second Amendment Foundation.  The NRA was far too selective about which people they would support and their failure to denounce the execution of a license gun holder by a cop had the appearance of race being the deciding factor.  So fark the NRA.  There are better organizations to support.

Violin, no....but shouldn't they point a gun at these fraudsters instead to get their money back?  That has to be in their mission statement or something.

So instead of being loudly racist, they prefer a return to quiet racism. They still supported Donnie, despite him being the only president in this generation to actually ban weapons.

Shoot, I guess they'll have to rifle through the sofa cushions, tighten their belts, or sell some stock.

President Biden will remove the weapons of war (semi auto rifle / pistol / shotgun ).  You will need a FFL to keep the one you have.  Most will turn it in.  If you keep it, you can't sell it and your family will have to Turn it in when you pass away.  We will finally end this misinterpretation of the constitution

Oh, this is totally just a political hit job.  Ivanka told me so.  It's the reason Trump didn't win.  The NRA is who gets people out to vote for some reason, but since they were to busy getting investigated to help.

Wayne La Pierre is an upstanding citizen and would never do anything wrong.

Law and Order.

So, that's a new tax-dodging strategy: our execs have been embezzling from us so we're still non-profit, right?

All cults are rackets. They have no real goals beyond making the gurus rich.

It's already a built-in scam, like a casino. Except it's even easier than a casino.
You con the rubes into thinking they need to give you money (that part's a huge success).
You get a bunch of money from corporations (another success).
You pay yourselves, and you give anything left over to the politicians as bribes to keep the machine going.
There are literally no other expenses, other than some office space and maybe printing bumper stickers.
How do you screw that up and lose money???

So the rubes like welfare when they get to choose who to give their money to .

Interestingly you don't see them crying about how this money is being used for cocaine and hookers.

They got cocky and sloppy, start to think their shiat don't stink and they could do what they wanted. It is like a mob movie where they work hard to get to the top and then get lazy. If you get lazy you need to cash out before you get caught.

It's the "Pay yourself" part that usually gets them.

When a few dozen of the residents of your town would be eager to forcibly deport my American, yet very brown ass and you need a force multiplier to make sure the cost is high.

Meh.  They originally had good intentions and did what they were meant for.  It was when they took the hard right turn that things went this way.

You mean the ones that the millionaires and billionaires getting the corporate welfare blow it on? Or what the NRA execs blew it on?
