NRA CEO Steps Down After 47 Years

 January 6, 2024

After 47 years of service, the CEO of the National Rifle Association is stepping down.

Wayne LaPierre is departing after almost a half-century of dedication to the oldest and largest civil rights organization in the history of the United States.

LaPierre continued the grand tradition of the NRA, fighting against corrupt governments and for the constitutional rights of Americans.

Along with certain unions in America, such as the New York State Teachers' Union, the NRA is often considered one of the most powerful and influential groups in American history.

"With pride in all that we have accomplished, I am announcing my resignation from the NRA," LaPierre said. "I’ve been a card-carrying member of this organization for most of my adult life, and I will never stop supporting the NRA and its fight to defend Second Amendment freedom. My passion for our cause burns as deeply as ever."

His resignation becomes official as of Jan. 31.
