Well the NRA seems to be imploding right now.
A contentious public infight within the National Rifle Association came to a head on Saturday with the organization's president, retired Lt. Col. Oliver North, announcing that he will not return for a second term.
North had intended to make an appearance at the organization's national convention in Indianapolis over the weekend, but instead of attending, Richard Childress, who serves as one of the NRA's current vice presidents, read a letter on his behalf.
"Please note, I hoped to be with you today as interim president endorsed for reelection. I'm now informed that will now not happen," Childress read to a convention hall full of NRA members. "I've been on the NRA board for more than two decades, it was a great privilege to serve as your president this past year."
North's departure comes amid a heated battle with Wayne LaPierre, chief executive officer and the longtime spiritual leader of the NRA. North reportedly asked LaPierre to resign from his post earlier this week as the organization faces challenges surrounding fundraising and its nonprofit status, the New York Times reported.
La Pierra's shelf life has expired years ago. I think as members we need to demand his departure.
