NRA Official Richard D'Alauro Lost Guns for Domestic Abuse

Raw Story

The former wife of a top official with the National Rifle Association in New York says that “years of domestic violence” caused a judge to bar the NRA field representative from carrying a gun.

Suffolk County records showed that authorities filed misdemeanor charges against Richard D’Alauro for assault and endangering a child after the incident on Sept. 1, 2010. At the time, police confiscated 39 weapons from the NRA official’s home, including at least 16 handguns.

The former wife said that she had been “too afraid to ever call the police on him” after “years of domestic violence.”

D’Alauro is a “bully” who used the same tactics on her as the NRA uses to intimidate lawmakers, Maribeth D’Alauro explained. 

“A man who has an order of protection against him … is a poor spokesman for the NRA,” Friedman said.
What can one say?  Guns, bullying and intimidation go together like Moe, Larry and Curley.


  1. This man is as representative of the NRA as a whole as the Jesses Jackson, both father and son, are of the Democratic Party.

    1. It's well known that the leadership of the NRA is NOT representative of its membership. The leaders are often shabby individuals though.

    2. The same statement is true of the Democratic Party, and yet, both organizations continue having an effect on our political life. I approve of most of what the NRA does and some of what the Democrats do.

  2. If you were aware of more details, I'm not so sure you would be so supportive.
