I wondered the same about their claim that they had a huge surge in membership after Newtown. How can we know? Their records aren't exactly open to scrutiny at times like this. (As a lobbying org. I realize that certain records have to be reported but I'll bet their is room to fudge on things like membership numbers.)
For all we know they may have had a surge in new members and another surge of old members quitting the group. Rather than NRA members calling for a leadership change I see them just leaving the group by not renewing membership.
Exactly Pappy -- but the group that remains seems silent as the night about LaPierre, et al. I have to really wonder whether it's true that LaPierre's extremist views "don't represent the majority of NRA members." Granted, it's not something that keeps me up at night, but it seems to me that that's easily taken for granted when I haven't seen much evidence to the contrary.
