Default Wayne LaPierre made $5million in 2015 ????

NRA Life member for over 20 yrs, CRPA member, Second Amendmenr Foundation life member for 4 years.

Just read in today's LA Times that NRA president Wayne LaPierre was paid $5 million in 2015. That means every member contributed at least $1 to his salary that year.

It seems that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are not the only ones who have found fame and fortune in fighting for civil rights ...

So I am wondering... At $5 million / year, how does LaPierre get to criticize the wealthy "elite" without being labeled a hypocrite??

As an NRA member I am feeling a bit taken advantage of and mislead.

I'm an NRA Life Member also, and I wouldn't want his job for any amount of money.

He is a high profile whipping post. You wouldn't want his job in reality. Just having to rub elbows with the Washington elite is enough to make me run for the hills.

It's a good point...and he is CEO of a large organization and should be paid according to his responsibility level and success levels. But this is "Clinton like" compensation for a non profit organization.

Do you really think the anti-gun LA Times is above hatchet job articles?

You are right.. I should have known better and dug deeper.

“The NRA is transparent in its finances and in its reporting of the
required Form 990,” said NRA President Allan Cors. “This is an employee
funded deferred compensation plan and the $3.7 million distribution to
Wayne LaPierre was required by federal law and properly reported.”



As a Lifetime / Benefactor NRA Member, I am perfectly Ok with this.

The amount of Bullsh*t Wayne has had to endure from the Anti Gun Zealots
over the decades is tremendous:



When the time comes, Enjoy your retirement, Mr LaPierre...

Question 1. Do you think the position of CEO of the NRA is valuable to the members and the mission?

Question 2. If yes to Question 1 then do you think that the position is worth 7 figures to attract top talent?

Question 3. If yes to Question 2 then do you think Wayne LaPierre is the man for the position?

Now we can argue about question 3, but the answer to questions 1 and 2 is Yes. So I don't get the indignation. It is exactly how the lefty media wants to make you feel - don't let them.

The NRA and its CEO are a real threat to gun grabbers, and they'd do anything to get you to dumb it down; anything to make it easier to grab your guns.

Being the head of the NRA is worth 1 mil a year. He is in fact a very good head of a large corporation.

Perhaps you can convince the NRA to let you take the job for say $ 20 bucks an hour or so and get the same results as he does?

If the LA Times printed it, its complete BS.

If a typical LA fire captain makes $350,000 a year total compensation - what does the president of the NRA deserve?

Micheal Bloomberg makes more in a day than Wayne LaPeirre will make in his entire life. What’s the point?

Default If he wasn't so hated by the other side, I'd say you have a valid point

It seems like he's getting paid to do his job.

Bob Iger, CEO of Disney made $44.9 million in 2015. He deals in a fantasy world. 2A is real world.

Well firstly, I am not aware of a single time when LaPierre criticized a "wealthy elite" (or anyone) that wasn't actively pursuing a political objective to take away someone's rights. Considering he is not using a large personal fortune to campaign to take away rights I cannot see how he is a hypocrite.

That being said, we do live in a (mostly) free market system. He is getting paid what he has been determined to be fair compensation. Why is $5 mil evil? Would he be less evil if he took half of that ($2.5mil)? What do you suppose his salary should be? Please explain how you have come to this conclusion.

you think he gets paid too much?

get on the board and cut his pay.

bet you wont even get a rag ho-ho to do that job for $50.grand a year.

sure i would love to get 5 mill a year. but do not look at just the gross income. look at how much made it down into his pockets.

and remember what he has to do 24-7-365 to earn it.

and i must add in the fact he has to hire people to protect him ( not as in armed guards) but as in tax , and lawyers, etc.
so a good part of his income helps others in there income needs.

We must show our support for gun rights by never criticizing anything or anyone related to guns.
