The National Rifle Association (NRA), the organization that fights for the American people’s right to be able to protect themselves from bad people who want to do them harm, has now filed for bankruptcy and the Second Amendment organization will reincorporate in Texas, the gun rights group announced on Friday.
The NRA, which is based in New York, said it is leaving “what it believes is a corrupt political and regulatory environment in New York” and will reconstitute itself as a Texas nonprofit. The group said its plan “involves utilizing the protection of the bankruptcy court.”
“The move will enable long-term, sustainable growth and ensure the NRA’s continued success as the nation’s leading advocate for constitutional freedom – free from the toxic political environment of New York,” the NRA said in a statement.
The NRA also claims it is in its “strongest financial condition in years” and said there will be no immediate changes to its operations. Over 400,000 NRA members live in Texas and the group is holding its annual meeting in Houston in 2021.
“This strategic plan represents a pathway to opportunity, growth, and progress,” NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre said in a statement. Obviously an important part of this plan is ‘dumping New York.’ The NRA is pursuing reincorporating in a state that values the contributions of the NRA, celebrates our law-abiding members, and will join us as a partner in upholding constitutional freedom. This is a transformational moment in the history of the NRA.”
The news follows a lawsuit from Democrat New York Attorney General Letitia James back in August that accuses the NRA of violating state law that governs nonprofit organizations.
The real reason why the New York attorney general went after the National Rifle Association has nothing to do with violating nonprofit laws. The reason they went after them is because the NRA is one of the top organizations that get the vote out for Republicans. The NRA uses a lot of its donation money to put up campaign ads that show which politicians protect Second Amendment rights and which politicians want to take away your Second Amendment rights to protect yourself and your loved one. Anyone who tells you any different is lying to you.
The suit brought on by the New York AG also accuses the group, including Wayne Lapierre and three other top officials, of diverting millions of dollars from its charitable mission.
In a statement given on Friday, James called the NRA morally and financially bankrupt. I think the Attorney General is morally bankrupt in that she only went after this organization for political reasons. When you think about it, Democrats in Democrat-run states made sure that small businesses suffered during the COVID crisis. They shut down small businesses because small business owners are the backbone of financial support in donations to the Republican Party. At the same time they shut down small businesses their rich friends in high places made out like bandits. Jeff Bezos who owns Amazon is an elite leftist friend of the Democrats, and he said that his company earned an additional $70 Billion because of COVID.
“The NRA’s claimed financial status has finally met its moral status: bankrupt. While we review this filing, we will not allow the NRA to use this or any other tactic to evade accountability and my office’s oversight,” she said.
This is the same attorney general who sued the NYPD for using too much force during the protests and riots in New York. City. The New York cops, thanks to the asinine Mayor Bill de Blasio, spent the better part of a year not being allowed to retaliate against thugs and hoodlums who would throw water on them. Can you imagine being a beat cop and you have some jackass throw a bucket of water on you and you don’t know when it’s coming at you if it is scalding hot water if it had bleach mixed in with it or some other chemical that could blind you or harm you or burn your skin? James is a toys-in-the-attic, bat guano crazy woman who is just another radical progressive funded by Jennifer Soros, daughter-in-law of George Soros to change American law to favor chaos and punish the cops.
The NRA went away you know damn right well that our Second Amendment rights would be eroded in no time.
