NRA’s Number Two Resigns

NRA’s Number Two Resigns, NRA Shuts Down NRA TV

Chris Cox, the former head of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) has resigned his position. Last week, NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre placed Cox on leave and accused the man many believed to be his evenutal successor of having aided in a failed “coup” attempt against LaPierre by former NRA President Oliver North. In the announcement of Cox’s departure to NRA employees, LaPierre thanked Cox “for his service to the NRA.” This latest development follows the announcement by LaPierre that the NRA was shutting down production of its online streaming network, NRATV. The Outdoor Wire has also acquired a communication between the NRA and its former agency Ackerman McQueen in which the NRA’s Andrew Arulanandam “demands immediate delivery of all materials by Section XLC of the Services Agreement, including all Confidential Information (as defined by the Services Agreement).” The letter also says that “if AMc damages or convert the NRA’s property, or if the NRA perceives an imminent risk of the same, the NRA will pursue legal recourse.” The acrimonious parting of the ways has been accompanied by a myriad of charge, counter-charges and lawsuits between the NRA and Ackerman McQueen.

I've got to be honest, I don't know where I come down on all the recent "issues" the NRA has. I've read articles on both sides of it, and I still can't wrap my head around the situation...

Looks like Wayne got too comfortable being the big cheese, set up a love nest for his intern, and nice suits and other perks. North and Cox saw the opportunity, with Ackerman’s backing, to push Wayne out the door. Cox was probably tired of waiting for LaPierre to retire(he won’t ever), and North saw a chance to get more authority. Didn’t work because Wayne has hand picked the BOD, and takes care of them, so they know they would have been gone next. So North, Ackerman and Cox are out. And Wayne still has his little kingdom for now.

That is my take.

I believe he was elected by membership , as are all the NRA office holders .

He certainly was, but he is a lock.
