Theyre getting fat on the deal too. Dont fool yourself.Problems with Wayne LP go back at least to 2004. I discovered first hand that he was swindling members when I received a telemarketing call from the NRA requesting I purchase a book Wayne had written. The telemarketer promised that the book would be then become part of the collection of a local library due to a contractual relationship that the NRA claimed to have with a non-existent library organization. Since I had a M.S. in Library Science, had worked in libraries, I knew that no such organization existed and that what the telemarketer was telling me was utter B.S. I called the telemarketer out, and requested the telephone number and address for the non-existent library organization. The telemarketer then admitted that there was no such organization.
I described this scam on one of the gun forums and was roundly denounced by many people as being a liar.
If I could detect a scam on the basis of recognizing that the NRA telemarketer was scamming me, why would people on the Board of Directors who are supposed to be responsible for the organization not recognize that Wayne was a scammer? Wayne did his part to scam NRA members, but the people who were scammed were WILLING PARTICIPANTS because they wanted to believe the organization was working for them, and simply couldn't accept the notion that a scammer is running the organization for his own benefit.
Since NRA members and the Board of Directors were unwilling to clean house, now it is up to dedicated opponents of the 2nd Amendment to do the job because "we" made a decision to look the other way.
