The cushy relationship between NRA board members and their advertising firm has been written about for years; but since it was from "regular" media, all the NRA boosters fan club discounted it. (see "Confessions of a Gun Lobbyist" for just one example) I think its funny now they can't hide the troubling numbers, all the sudden a problem. Many here would have watched "Under Wild Skies" with Tony Makris and seen Wayne LaPierre on the show. How do you think all that got paid for? Hint: Markis works for Ackerman McQueen.
