Seems like the N.R.A / Mr Mercer has shot themselves in the foot! If the comments attributed to Mr Mercer are verbatim, then he has not acted in a professional manner and brought the N.R.A. into disrepute and acted rather like an 'Arthur Daley' character. Perhaps Mr Mercer would like to change jobs and sell secondhand cars instead!

WOW!

Why have we not yet seen Mr Mercer's resignation letter along with whomever runs the armoury! This is an outrageous breach of trust!

No doubt camouflage clothing was involved in this somewhere.

As Oliver Cromwell said.

".............. think it possible you may be mistaken....................You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately... Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!"

The only thing that puzzles me is why is this ignorant man still there.

Surely this is gross misconduct towards a member and he should leave.

As he seems to be totally lacking in any integrity he will not go of his own volition so the trustees should be holding disciplinary proceedings.

why on earth would compensation for the loss of scope etc require here to give them the rifle?? If they had just straight up damaged it, she wouldnt have been expected to do so

How much longer will the NRA membership tolerate Mercer, it's just one cock-up after another?
