Couple things to note. Wayne is not the top paid person and Chris Cox at 660,000 is an absolute steal. That is very modest for a high profile federal lobbyist.

Apparently the NRA is a rogue's gallery of the most odious voices in the contemporary conservative movement. I think I will remain a member anyway.

The funny thin was several years ago we had the NRA Convention in the city near where I call home. I went down and paid the $10.00 to visit the exhibits, and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Saw Old Wayne LaPierre walking around talking to people in the exhibition hall, and it appeared he was being closely watch by a cole of side of beef that I will assume were his personal body guards. It seemed to me Mr. LaPierre was on friendly ground at the NRA Convention, and I question the need for hired guns, and compensation package for Old Wayne.

Nice touch forgetting to mention that the link you posted was put up by the Director Of Communications at Coalition To Stop Gun Violence. You appear to be one devious snake akapennypincher.

Thank you for the domain name owner information Herr Glock.

After personally attending 3 of the 5 MN hearings on gun control last week, I don't think this is the time to question their actions. We had strong NRA representation and along with "GOCRA" they did a tremendous job arguing against the anti's. I left realizing that we are paying lobbyists and they are expensive.

Are you a member of the NRA?

Were you there at the rally?

Perhaps I don't understand your question, the NRA was at the rally, yes?

Do you know that the friends of the NRA was not involved with the organization of the rally?

You get what you pay for, we could probably hire Bubba or Cletus for much less.

When Bubba calls a member of congress and leaves a message he never hears back. Wayne does.

A million sounds like a lot, but Fairfax County pays a teacher with a BA - on the very shortest 194-day contract - between $45k and $90k. They make more with additional hours of education, additional degrees, longer contracts (up to 260 days), etc.

www.fcps.edu/hr/salary/salaryscales.shtml

Even the Commonwealth has a higher pay scale for state employees in northern Virginia.

I am fine with giving WL a raise, I would also be ok with voting him into office.

OP, it seems you have a vendetta, feel free to leave at any time.

Crap... now I've got to join the NRA again.

Does anyone know if they still have the three year membership option?

I'm not talking about government conspiracy, but I wonder how many GT members are really anti 2A activists. I have read some stuff over the years that made me wonder how someone could be a 2A supporter and supposed gun owner and hold the opinions that were expressed.

whining just serves to divide gun owners.

become involved in other ways in addition to supporting the nra.
snail mail is more likely to be read/pondered than e-mail by congress because you just cannot sort/tally handwritten letters - you can e-mail.

Wow! Human stupidity never ceases to amaze me!

It's difficult to imagine either the scope or extent of moronic social intellect until you actually see it in action. My generation had a lot more savvy. We weren't such, 'internet jerks'; and (NOT that it ultimately did us much good, but) at least, we had the initial insight and acumen - along with the tenacity - to launch the so-called, 1977, 'NRA Rebellion' in Cincinnati.

Back in the 70's NRA leadership and management sucked, big time; and know what? It still sucks, big time, today. It's only that the extant membership isn't, 'cut from the same cloth', is both morally and socially degraded, and completely fails to grasp how Harlon Carter so very smoothly sold out every single gun owner in America. Nothing's really changed in 2013. If anything the situation has become far worse!

Don't let an old gunman like me, 'rock your boat', though. If you guys want to, 'clutch at straws while drowning' that's your business. Me? I've got little, or no, use for taking either the, 'easy way out', or joining in on and running along with an effete popular illusion.

American gun ownership is well on its way to becoming stone-cold dead; and, the way I see things, the NRA has done an excellent job of misdirecting America's gun owners, pissing tens of millions of contributed dollars away, and fooling the vast majority of America's (remarkably) simple-minded gun owners into believing that they're doing some good. (They're not!)

By the time you people wake up and realize what's happened to America and its Constitution, it's all going to be over! (What is more, I'll bet that better than 90% of the present American gun owning public won't even know exactly, 'How' or, 'Why' they got screwed out of both their guns AND their Republic!)

If there are 4,000,000 NRA members -

and he makes about $1,250,000 a year -

Then he is costing each member ~$.32 a year.

Mailing a letter to your congress critter now costs $.46 for the postage.

"the way I see things"

Have you had your eyes checked recently? That could be part of the problem you know.

First, sarcasm isn't going to save you.

Second, I'm already convinced that the situation is well beyond repair; and

Third, I don't care enough to argue the point. Am I correct? Am I incorrect? Time will tell; AND, the good news is that you're not going to have to wait that long to find out! (Less time, in fact, than I have already lived!)

By the way, your English grammar is wrong. You left out the, 'comma of direct address' before the expression, 'wise one' (Which by the syntax you, obviously, intended should have, also, been capitalized.) This tells me a lot about the type and quality of education you, clearly, haven't received.

Maybe you could get a job in the NRA's Accounting Department?
