BREAKING: Chris Cox, the heir apparent to @NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre and chief architect of the gun lobby's insidious state strategy to loosen gun laws, has resigned after nearly 20 years with the organization.

Guess @ChrisCoxNRA will have to change his handle. You hate to see it.

UPDATE: Wayne LaPierre said in an email that he‘d accepted Chris Cox’s resignation, noting that Cox was on leave pending an investigation into the claims against him: “Naturally, that pursuit will continue in the interest of the @NRA and our members.”
