The National Rifle Association’s legal troubles have cost the powerful gun rights group $100 million, according to a recording of the group’s board meeting obtained by NPR.

In the January 2020 recording, NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre criticized ongoing investigations by the New York and Washington D.C. attorneys general, bemoaning the “power of weaponized government.” And he told the NRA board of directors assembled for the NRA’s winter meeting in January that the organization has had to make $80 million in cuts to stay afloat.

The NRA’s internal turmoil burst into the open at the April 2019 annual members’ meeting, when then-president Oliver North stepped down from the organization in protest after allegations of self-dealing and poor management of NRA funds were revealed in media reports.
