In a move that has the gun community buzzing, the National Rifle Association announced today that Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre has stepped down as the head of the nation’s gun lobby for undisclosed reasons.
Replacing LaPierre will be N. Stephanie Spika, the organization’s standout social media manager.
Both LaPierre and Spika declined Guns.com’s request for comment. However, sources close to Spika said that she’s elated by the new opportunity to head up what is arguably the most powerful lobbying group in Washington, D.C.
“With her bright eyes, radiant smile, impossibly strong work ethic and ‘anything’s possible’ mentality, Ms. Spika is the perfect woman for the job,” said an NRA insider to Guns.com.
“She’s so excited to write a new chapter for the NRA, one that continues to emphasize the organization’s longstanding values of gun rights and responsible gun ownership, but one that is also more equipped to confront the challenges of the digital age,” that source continued.
