As of the end of 2022, revenue and assets were continuing to decline, as legal expenses continued to take up a larger and larger percentage of expenditures — all thanks to Wayne LaPierre and the impotent Board that refuses to hold him accountable.
Here are links to the petitions you can print, sign, and mail back:
Print petitions only on 8.5″x11″ paper. Petitions should run lengthwise across the page and fill it completely. Since the files are saved “sideways,” on most printers, the proper setting would be “Portrait” to get a “Landscape” result.
Select the “Fit to Page” option on printer.
Phone: 602-730-4570 with any questions.
Mail petitions directly to each candidate, as there’s no longer time for us to forward them: P.O. Box 303, Tombstone, AZ 85638
Petitions must be turned in to NRA by the candidates by November 7, so please sign and mail your petitions to each candidate as soon as possible.
P.S. Some of you have requested that we mail you copies of the petitions to sign. We attempted to mail petitions to everyone who requested them, but missed a few and are now out of time to get those out and back to the candidates, so thank you for the requests, and our apologies for not getting them all processed in a timely manner.

Tombstone, Arizona –-(Ammoland.com)- Brandon Herrera, popular YouTube personality, gun designer, FFL, and all-around good guy, has declared his candidacy for Congress in the 23rd District of Texas, bringing a whole new energy to the popular phrase, “Let’s Go, Brandon!!!”
Texas 23 is a massive District covering a huge swath of West Texas, running from the Western side of San Antonio to Eastern El Paso, and South to include all of Big Bend National Park. It is one of the largest and least densely populated Congressional Districts in the country and has been something of a political football over the past several decades, with Republicans and Democrats actively working to Gerrymander the District to lock it up for their side.
Is it possible that the NRA will no longer exist by this time next year?
The New York Attorney General’s lawsuit is expected to go to trial in January of 2024 and last about a month. Possible outcomes include complete dissolution of the Association and sale of its assets and criminal prosecutions. More likely scenarios lean toward some form of ground-up restructuring, such as receivership, which would place the Association under the control of a court-appointed overseer.
It could well lead to the prosecution of (all-too-well) paid staff and officials from the President down to certain Board Members.
Meanwhile, about one-third of the current Board will stand for election in 2024. Nominating petitions can be turned in until November 7, 2023. It’s possible that the NRA will again file for bankruptcy prior to the trial, this time with some legitimacy. Bankruptcy could leave the Director elections in limbo. Then again, a judge might look to replace the deadwood on the old board with fresh, engaged members who want the best for the Association.
So, as the Titanic prepares to set sail, want to join the crew? The 2024 election of Directors might be moot. Then again, it might be an important turning point.
They made a lot of good points, but there’s more to the story. Of course, in the NRA version, the New York Attorney General’s lawsuit against the NRA and four of its top executives is all just one facet of the wider political attacks on gun rights and gun owners. There is some truth to that position, but it is not the whole truth. Without question the NY AG Letitia James targeted the NRA for political reasons.
Tombstone, Arizona –-(Ammoland.com)- NRA heavy-hitter donor and Wayne LaPierre critic David Dell’Aquila is back in court in his efforts to force major changes within the Association.
Dell’Aquila first filed his suit against the NRA, the NRA Foundation, and Wayne LaPierre back in 2019, shortly after revelations of widespread financial chicanery within the organization became public. Through a long trail of ups and downs, the lawsuit has lingered in the background for almost four years and came very close to dying on the vine on a couple of occasions, but each time, Dell’Aquila was able to keep it alive.
Tombstone, Arizona –-(Ammoland.com)- Another swing and a miss for the NRA and their high-priced attorneys at the Brewer law firm, this time in a motion to intervene in a case brought by Ranier Arms and the Second Amendment Foundation. This is just the latest in a long line of expensive failures for the NRA’s very expensive attorneys.
A few weeks ago, the Firearms Policy Coalition won an injunction in the Federal Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to halt enforcement of the BATFE’s new rule on pistol stabilizing braces, but only for the plaintiffs in the case.
The new rule went into effect on June first and makes anyone still in possession of an AR-type pistol with a stabilizing brace attached after that date a felon unless they had previously filed paperwork to register the brace-equipped firearm as a Short-Barreled Rifle (SBR) under the National Firearms Act. Several groups and individuals had challenged the new rule in various lawsuits, Continue reading Yet Another Loss for the NRA & the Brewer Law Firm→
