Scandal-tainted NRA head Wayne LaPierre digs in under heavy fire

In the aftermath of the back-to-back shooting massacres in Texas and Ohio, the debate over gun control has returned to the National Rifle Assn. and its immense power to stymie any significant legislation on the issue.

The man largely responsible for the NRA’s uncompromising stance is its decades-long chief executive, Wayne LaPierre, who has been engulfed in turmoil and legal issues as he orchestrates the group’s latest efforts to push back against gun control measures.

Authorities are investigating the NRA’s finances, and the gun group has ousted top officials and traded lawsuits with the longtime marketing firm credited with helping to shape LaPierre’s and the NRA’s images.

LaPierre’s seven-figure salary, penchant for luxury clothing shopping sprees and reports that he sought to have the NRA buy him a $6-million mansion at an exclusive golf community have drawn considerable scrutiny amid allegations of rampant misspending.
