RE: Independent investigations

Dear Folks,

Continued leaks, accusations, and counter accusations have left a haze of conjecture surrounding
our Association. It is our duty as a duly elected Board of Directors to dispel this cloud, right the
Association’s path and restore the trust of our members.

Because of our dedication and loyalty to the NRA, the Answer and Counterclaim filed on behalf
of Oliver North, in the case of National Rifle Association v. Oliver North, compels us as Board
Members – legally bound by our fiduciary duty of care – to act. To ensure that we are fully and
accurately informed about the financial health of the Association, we must make the following
requests.

First, that the NRA engage outside professionals to conduct an independent, internal
investigation and confidential audit into the allegations of financial misconduct. Second, that
the NRA conduct an outside, independent review of the millions of dollars in payments to
Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors for legal fees. Third, pursuant to NRA Bylaw Article IV,
Section 2, Board of Directors, Powers and Duties, that an Outside Independent Special
Committee be formed, tasked with investigating and addressing the problems identified above,
and required to report its findings and recommendations to the entire Board of Directors.
With this degree of scrutiny and transparency, the Board can fulfill our legal obligations, remove
all doubt regarding our Association’s direction, and allow us to return to our mission of
protecting our Second Amendment.

Yours for freedom,

/S/ Sean Maloney
