Allen West: Statement Regarding the NRA

I do not support Wayne LaPierre continuing as the EVP/CEO of the NRA. The vote in Indianapolis was by acclamation, not roll call vote. There is a cabal of cronyism operating within the NRA and that exists within the Board of Directors. It must cease, and I do not care if I draw their angst. My duty and responsibility is to the Members of the National Rifle Association, and my oath, since July 31, 1982, has been to the Constitution of the United States, not to any political party, person, or cabal.
The NRA Board of 76 is too large and needs to be reduced to 30 or less. We need term limits of four (4) terms on the Board. We need to focus the NRA, the nation’s oldest civil rights organization on its original charter, mission, training and education in marksmanship, shooting sports, and the defense of the Second Amendment.

  1. I was listening to a podcast. Jeff Knox was the guest, if I remember correctly. I wasn’t listening real close, because I was at work, but did hear him state that either he or his father had tried to introduce a resolution to (I’m going to quote as best I can) “look into the process needed to amend the charter to require the board of directors to have 1 person from each state and 26 at large positions.” The reasoning was, if there was a state level issue, people knew who at the NRA to contact.

    Whoever introduced it was told (and again, going to quote as best I remember) “that violates the charter”. The response he gave on the podcast, which is why I remember this, was “it’s against the charter to look into ways to possibly amend the charter, really?” He continued on that there was some historical reason for the number of members (either didn’t say what that was, or I missed it).
