NRA LEADERSHIP Announcement – The Decision Is Final!
(ConservativeHub.com) – The National Rifle Association (NRA) announced Wayne LaPierre would continue to serve as the executive vice president and CEO on May 30, after his reelection. According to the statement, LaPierre received all but one vote from the Board of Directors at its meeting in Houston, Texas. He prevailed over challenger Lt. Col. Allen West.
The NRA faces a rough road ahead after recent mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, have opponents shouting for stiffer gun control laws. Additionally, Fox News reported on May 30 that the organization faces accusations of overspending and financial issues. New York Attorney General Letitia James has even filed a lawsuit accusing the CEO and other leaders of using NRA money for personal expenses.

In the face of pro-gun control advocates, the NRA and LaPierre continue to stand firm that they support more mental health advocacy and stricter security at schools as a better way to combat gun violence. The reelected CEO formally stated he’s “honored to continue my work for the NRA,” according to Fox News. He issued a statement noting the group’s focus on maintaining the Second Amendment rights for all Americans and standing up for responsible gun ownership.
During the meeting, the board also reelected President Charles Cotton, First Vice President Lt. Col. Willes K. Lee, and Second Vice President David Coy.
