Check for Dallas Mansion Raises New Questions About NRA Plans

Source: Wall Street Journal

In May 2018, the National Rifle Association sent a $70,000 check to an obscure Delaware entity called WBB Investments LLC, which had been incorporated a week earlier.

The check, a copy of which was obtained by The Wall Street Journal, raises new questions about the NRA’s attempts to explain a tangled transaction involving its then-outside advertising agency and an abortive plan to purchase a $6 million Dallas mansion for NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre.

The advertising agency, Ackerman McQueen, recently turned over documents to the proposed house purchase to the New York attorney general’s office, which is probing Mr. LaPierre’s dealings with the agency as part of a broad investigation of the NRA.

When the Journal broke the story last week, the NRA initially said the plan to buy the mansion was hatched by Angus McQueen, the ad agency’s late co-CEO, as a kind of safe house for Mr. LaPierre. The NRA chief had concerns about his security in the wake of the February 2018 mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla.

1. A safe house? Don't they know some people with guns?

Just invite some of them over. Doesn’t matter who, I’m sure they’re all good guys.

2. Speaking of the NRA, I wonder how many NRA "members" are real people versus Russian creations.

The NRA causes all kinds of trouble for this country, and membership dues provide lots of money to buy politicians.

To HELL with school kids wearing bullet proof backpacks, and parents worried sick about sending their kids to school. Sick people in the NRA. Reap what you have sown, bastard Lapierre. All tax free, no less.

7. The NRA is nothing but a slush fund front

It exists for no other purpose than to line pockets.

11. When I was a kid the NRA was a good group. Then republicans took over.

Now it is apparent their members are just rubes lining the pockets of the people that run it while supporting policies that kill more and more Americans.
