National Rifle Association padding membership claims while hiding losses

Insiders at the embattled National Rifle Association say the organization is padding its claims of recent increases in membership and say more members are leaving amid criticisms over strident positions taken by controversial leader Wayne LaPierre.
“In reality, our membership is probably dropping,” says one embittered NRA staffer, who asked not to be identified. “It’s hard to say because our membership department is always playing games with the numbers.”
If this continues, perhaps there will be room for a true gun owners group to take the NRA’s place. Once can only hope.
