I don’t know whether it was due to pushback or due to Congress discussing gun control but the NRA has moved their September Board of Directors meeting back to Virginia. It was supposed to be held in Anchorage, Alaska. The location and expense of getting board members to Alaska at a time when the NRA is having financial difficulties caused quite a bit of controversy.
Notice of the change came from a Tweet by the New York Times reporter Danny Hakim. As noted before, he seems to be the new go-to guy for leaks.
In a note to the board this evening, the @NRA said “As the details of the congressional schedule were revealed today, it became apparent that a fight of historic proportions is going to begin during the time when we would have been in Alaska.”— Danny Hakim (@dannyhakim) August 28, 2019
UPDATE: The location of the NRA Board meeting will be the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport.
