I sent some money to another Texas pro-gun organization that hasn't thrown Texans under the bus.
IOW, you don't have an idea how to do it = but you're not going to pass by a chance to toss out an insult. Classy.

I think the email TSRA/Alice sent out after the incident is linked in another thread here on TGT. Maybe someone can search for it. I'm going to bed now. I'll check tomorrow. If the initial email is not linked, maybe I can search for it in my email. I know her responses to my questions are listed here in another thread. It was clearly against McNutt and in favor of Bonnen. Sure YOU are the TSRA. So am I and some of the others here as well BUT I link TSRA/Alice together because she was the one that sent the email out on behalf of the TSRA. Basically the association backed the wrong side and then once more info. came out not only did not apologize for it but didn't even make a correction to the initial email sent out.
To a member such as myself, THAT is a problem. I am surprised you are not aware of that email TSRA sent out.
In that regard, I am not going to argue. I'll tell you honestly that I was beyond upset with it - especially given that I'd withheld judgement until such a time as I could verify more - in this case, when those bodycam recordings came out. I'm still not sure that going to his neighborhood was the wisest move ever made - but beyond a doubt, there was misrepresentation as to what transpired that day - and it certainly wasn't by McNutt. There are times when things get moving sideways that are difficult to correct - and sometimes we get hampered by "corporatism", where we tend not to say what we'd really want to say because we're trying to be measured in our responses. But I can tell you that behind the scenes, there have been some pretty brutal discussions on a variety of subjects - and the happenings of this last session are certainly among them.

TSRA is stuck with the same problem NRA has.

The image of a single person is hampering the success of the entire organization. Yet many folks staunchly defend the person, despite the overwhelming evidence they are detrimental to the cause. In both organizations it is past time for confidants of both folks to take them aside and tell them it is time to retire with grace.

I'd have to say it goes beyond a single person. The general perception is certainly not helped - but there's been a lack of attention to some things that IS being addressed. Some of it is little things - such as our recent website changes, and updating how things are done. For example, our latest gun raffle is actually available via the web/e-commerce. No filling out tickets manually and mailing them in - you can get them online. We're working towards making that a more common thing.....it'll make life easier for all, I think.

The personnel issues....well, IMO they ARE different - but it's not as easy as telling someone to go away - you have to be prepared to replace them with a person that fits within the mission goals and job profile - but it will happen. That's really all I can say about that at this time.

I do have an idea get rid of Bonwell and the other hinderance Dan Patrick. Let's bring the bill to the floor and vote on it. My State Representative is James White who filed HB 1911 for Constitutional Carry. I write to him on these issues. I also joined Texas Gun Rights who is doing a full-court press for Constitutional carry and are not paying footsie with Bonwell under the table while giving lip service to Constitutional Carry. That sounds like an idea of how to do it to me. I am not sure of the Constitutional Carry position of Senator Nichols. I will be corresponding with him. Sounds like a plan to me.

How would you go about executing this plan? You make it sound so simple.

Do you know the process involved in getting the bill to the floor?

Oh - and it's Bonnen. If you're going to go after someone, it's best to at least know their name.

Reading my TSRA magazine, I note that Alice Tripp's summary of her visit to the national NRA shindig didn't even mention the growing anti-LaPierre sentiment.

Makes me wonder if the TSRA is really "representing" us nationally, or if they are among the NRA's LaPierre sycophants?

Until now, I have always had great respect for the TSRA.

The TSRA is a NRA puppet organization here in Texas. It is not representing anything nationally, it is strictly a state organization. You will never hear anything negative about wayne lapierre or the NRA from alice tripp. You will also never hear alice tripp say anything negative about the Speaker of the Texas House, dennis bonnen.
