NRA to Layoff 200 Staffers as Group Faces Massive Financial Crisis: After spending over $30 million of a huge cash infusion from the Russians to help get Donald Trump elected in 2016, the National Rifle Association is now facing a deepening financial crisis, resulting in over 200 staff layoffs, 20% staff pay cuts, four-day workweeks, and other belt-tightening measures, according to insider NRA sources, gun analysts and other documents.
Oh, the horrors of it all! Why, if this situation isn’t resolved soon, the NRA may be forced to stop buying politicians altogether and will simply have to “bite the bullet.” Oh well, if all those Russki rubles seem to have dried up, perhaps they could ask their Chief Executive Wayne La Pierre for a loan? He seems to have no shortage of cash. In the meantime, just know we’re all sending out our heartfelt thoughts and prayers, during these most difficult of times.
