Wade Callender, the former Gearbox lawyer who has been in a sprawling legal battle with the Borderlands studio and boss Randy Pitchford since late last year, has joined... the National Rifle Association. Yes, really.
So I read “joined the NRA” as “he became a member” instead of literally being hired by the NRA.
Based on all of the gun clubs Gearbox says he joined with company money, I assume he’s been an NRA member for awhile. Which would make sense, both owning guns and being a lawyer.
