The NRA cannibalizes its own as it enters its final death throes.

This could be the feel-good news of the day.

Courtesy of CNN:

The National Rifle Association was already reeling from leadership shakeups and allegations of financial mismanagement when it dropped another bombshell.

The NRA accused Chris Cox — the man who had controlled the organization’s lobbying and political activities for more than 15 years — of trying to overthrow Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre, according to a lawsuit filed last month.

Cox denied the charge to The New York Times, but quickly resigned. His unceremonious sacking stunned NRA board members, who saw Cox as a potential successor to LaPierre, and infuriated political staffers. Some started packing up their desks, unsure of whether they would be ousted too, multiple NRA sources said.

That’s when the Washington power brokers really started to worry. Cox’s departure, after months of turmoil at the NRA, only amplified the sense that the gun-rights group might not be the political powerhouse in 2020 that it has been for decades, including notably in 2016.

Damn do I love this story!

Once the NRA is no more, we will see gun control measure being passed all over the country with comparative ease.

They are the organization that has done the most to keep our children in harm’s way despite the fact that we have known for decades that we have a serious problem by threatening lawmakers with letter writing campaigns and spending millions of dollars to elect pro-gun politicians.

When all is said and done, and the NRA is no more, I hope that history gives a great deal of the credit to those Parkland kids.

I think that they, more than anybody else, really helped focus attention on America’s problem with gun violence. 

And yes, I really do think that the NRA as we know it is on its last legs.

    Good riddance and the best part is they did it to themselves.

    good thing they don’t allow guns at their conventions or they would be shooting each other.

    Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. NRA isn’t going anywhere.

    There will always be a strong pro 2nd amendment lobby, like it or lump it.

      People who use the words always and never have no idea how the universe works. But if you say so.😉

      Have to agree here.
      We had our chance Sandy Hook.
      Congress was having NONE of it.

      Besides, round up all the guns? Black market just like the drug trade. Put em in jail overnight, out the next day. Sex trafficking still major business, Epstein denied bail or not.

    The next time they launch a campaign to “save the guns” the opposition should show up with photos of the torn and bleeding bodies of the victims.

    Screw them.

    Tbe 2nd Amendment was written when the nascent USA had no money and no standing army; we now have the most expensive army in the world. Time to de-sanctify the NRA.

      I am so darned tired of the “thank you for your service” claptrap.
      LOOK, you want to play your war games, go right ahead and do it. Don’t expect me to applaud you.
      Since Vietnam, so many against their will, and service members every damned sports event since.
      I read Jim Wright. Now THERE is a man I respect. Not pansy Duhkota.

    Gunman shot at congress members playing ball a few years ago. Nothing was done. That is how stubborn and opposed to change and openmindedness these people are. And all because they have a FIXED savior. Nothing in nature is fixed. Therebis ni “thing” that is fixed. They have made it clear they would rather die because of their ignorance. No matter, we all come back for another round, maybe they’ll open up to nature then, or maybe not.

      Correction.

      There is no “thing” that is fixed.
