Wayne LaPierre, the longstanding CEO of the National Rifle Association (NRA) since 1991, has made a shocking announcement of his resignation. This move comes at a crucial time as LaPierre faces allegations from New York Attorney General Letitia James. He is accused of violating laws and misusing NRA funds for personal gain. LaPierre, expressing his continued support for the NRA, stated his resignation in an NRA press release.

According to NRA President Charles Cotton, LaPierre, 74, cited health reasons for his decision. The announcement was made at a board meeting in Irving, Texas. LaPierre’s resignation will be effective from January 31st, with Andrew Arulanandam stepping in as interim CEO and Executive Vice President.

Cotton praised LaPierre for his significant contributions to defending Second Amendment rights and building a robust organization. He expressed confidence in Arulanandam’s ability to lead the NRA towards a bright future.

The press release also addressed the upcoming lawsuit by the New York Attorney General, with LaPierre being a defendant. The trial is set to begin soon, amid a backdrop of membership decline and financial struggles within the NRA.

Commentators like Mrgunsngear from LouderWithCrowder Studios and Libertarian Nicholas Sarwark, referencing The New York Times, have speculated on LaPierre’s motives, pointing to possible legal strategies, financial issues, and a significant drop in membership and revenue. Sarwark highlighted a notable decrease in NRA membership and soaring legal costs, underlining the organization’s challenges.
