Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows a corporation to reorganize and restructure debt. Nothing will be liquidated. Remember when part of Hertz filed for Chapter 11 and people thought that they'd be selling off their cars cheap? Didn't happen.I wonder about that status of the NRA gun museum. I turned my back on the NRA in the 1990s so I am not quite up on it, but don't they own a huge building in D.C.? What about the Whittington Center? Will the NRA have to liquidate as part of the bankruptcy? As a member of a gun club back in the 1970s and 1980s, I held several offices and delt with the NRA on shooting competition and gun safety matters. In that regard, they were ok - the gun legislation stuff disappointed me even back then. The NRA colluded in writing the 1968 GCA.
The requirement for endorsement is paying a commission to the NRA. It stands to reason the market can provide policies at similar pricing with the referral fee off the table..The insurance is NRA endorsed, not supplied. Lockton Affinity is out of Kansas, I believe.
Yes, Braintree R&P did an analysis a number of years ago and went with a local agent for less money. I'm certain that Historic Firearms (aka Eastern Insurance) offers similar coverage for gun clubs.There are other options out there. Former club found one a few years ago when I was on the board and that club had a bar.
I've seen the same insurance as NRA/Lockton offered by a few other companies. Same cost including the "fee".The requirement for endorsement is paying a commission to the NRA. It stands to reason the market can provide policies at similar pricing with the referral fee off the table..
When they were established in 1871, the Union generals who organized the NRA were in New York, New England, etc. And NY was once a much more conservative place that elected Republican governors and senators.Why were they ever in NY? If you are a lobbying superpower shouldn't you be in DC. Or at least VA/MD.

Why didn't they move to DC area in the last 50 years? And why not now? I don't really care, it just smells of more shenanigans.They were formed in 1871 to promote marksmanship. At that time the major and many minor gun manufacturers were in the New England and New York areas.
It was a much different New York back then.
