North's announcement on Saturday shocked the hundreds of NRA members and donors gathered at the NRA annual meeting in Indianapolis — the news was met with absolute silence.

Following the announcement, rank-and-file NRA members proposed a resolution holding LaPierre accountable for the allegations of financial mismanagement within the organization and calling for him to step down.

North made a run at unseating Lapierre (last time attempted in '91 or '92 IIRC), and this attempt failed too. Somehow turmoil follows Ollie, and some of it of his own making I think.

If we had done what North did in the Iran Contra scandal, we'd still be under the jail.
As far as LaPierre, he's just one of the major issues I pulled the plug on the NRA years ago.

I wondered why we weren't getting the bang for the buck I thought we should be getting.

It seem any one in these high, powerful positions are there for 2 reasons. Get as much money they can any way possible and power and we are the idiots that pay their was until we smarten up.

The info has always been out there. You just have to look.

It's like North. Iran Contra? Ring a bell?

Help Regan deceive the American people, sneak around Congress and sell dope to pay for rebel guns in a foreign country.

Who were these drugs sold to?
YOU! The American people.

Oliver North! What a patriot!💩🤣

So as punishment his indictment was dismissed and you guys elected him president of the NRA?

Then everyone acts shocked at the sneaky mess uncovered.

You do throw a lot of stones being from Texas. Virginia, Florida and Texas may be tired for the most corrupt states in the Nation. I know you know people that voted for LBJ the second most evil man from the US in the 20th century. FDR will always be first with me. And No I didn't vote for North because I never trust Military Officers.

I watched the thing with north on TV with all the hearings on Iran - Contra affair and I never could understand how he with such a low rank had all the power that he had. I told my wife at the time there is a lot more to this story than we are getting. I just could not figure out how he had the power to deal with all the people he was dealing with and represent the US in the dealings.
