Busch Resigns NRA; Says It Is Out of Touch with Members

Adolphus Busch IV
"The NRA I see today has undermined the values upon which it was established. Your current strategic focus clearly places priority on the needs of gun and ammunition manufacturers while disregarding the opinions of your four million individual members.

"One only has to look at the makeup of the 75-member board of directors, dominated by manufacturing interests, to confirm my point. The NRA appears to have evolved into the lobby for gun and ammunition manufacturers rather than gun owners."

--Adolphus Busch IV (here) on the NRA's opposition to reasonable gun control in his letter of resignation from the club, with which he had a lifetime membership. Busch is one of the beer people.
