In our best news of the day segment we learn that the NRA is now so poor it can no longer provide coffee to employees.

I am typing this with a huge grin on my face.

The National Rifle Association is doing away with free coffee and water coolers for employees at its Fairfax, Virginia, headquarters — a cost-cutting move that has NRA insiders “freaking out,” The Trace has learned.

“The whole building was freaking out,” said one former employee who remains in contact with current staffers. Three other sources familiar with the gun group’s operations confirmed the story to The Trace.

The coffee cutback is the just latest indication that the NRA is hurting for cash. Membership revenue declined by $35 million last year, and the NRA recently rolled out its second dues increase in as many years. In May, the gun group sued Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, claiming that his state’s zealous regulatory efforts against its Carry Guard insurance program had cost the NRA “tens of millions of dollars” in lost revenue, legal fees, and other damages. (A federal judge recently ruled that the suit can go forward.)

Perhaps the most vivid evidence of belt-tightening at the NRA was its drastically reduced spending on the 2018 midterm elections. The group shelled out just under $10 million on House and Senate candidates this cycle — less than half of what it spent on congressional races in 2014 and 2016.

The Carry Guard litigation and midterm spending, however reduced, have drained resources away from day-to-day operations, one former staffer said. “Money is going from the programs to fight the legal battle,” the staffer said. “They’re draining money from general operations to push over to [the NRA’s lobbying arm, the Institute for Legislative Action]. They want the money to be able to push the agenda.”

I told you it was the best news of the day. 

You know I have worked for some barely solvent businesses in my time, including a few non-profits, and we never got so broke we could not provide free coffee to the employees. 

So not only is the NRA a murder promoting Satanic organization that drinks from the blood of innocent victims, but it is also has a shitty business model.

    How soon until Dana puts her mug on TV denying it is so?
    My Dad (WWII/Korea) was a member of the NRA for years but withdrew a good decade ago because of their policies.
    I still seethe inside over Wayne La Pierre’s response to Sandy Hook.

    It’s all because that scary black man is no longer in the White House, and their hero, Donald, will make America great again. Besides, those NRA worshiping retards already have more weapons than they know what to do with.

    Did their good buddy, Putin’s check bounce?

    How much coffee do they drink that cutting it out is going to be a meaningful savings?

      Well, I think depriving them of a major source of caffeine is probably a good thing.
