New York sues to dissolve National Rifle Association ‘in its entirety’

The state of New York is going after the Second Amendment by getting rid of the gun rights advocacy group, National Rifle Association (NRA).

Yesterday, New York Attorney General (AG) Letitia James filed a lawsuit against the NRA for fraud claiming that top executives have been using the organization as their personal piggy bank to fund a lavish lifestyle.

James announced that “My office filed a lawsuit to dissolve the organization in its entirety” and that the NRA is being investigated on whether or not any mismanaged funds were used to donate to political campaigns. James denies that the lawsuit is politically motivated or that she’s trying to financially cripple the NRA, which had donated more than $30 million towards the Trump presidential campaign in 2016.

Letitia James, 61, is a Democrat. In November 2018, she was the first black to be elected the state’s attorney general, defeating Republican Keith Wofford.

The election of Letitia James is one of the successes of George Soros’ quest to radically transform law enforcement in the United States by spending millions of dollars to elect leftist state and local prosecutors. Soros’ daughter-in-law, Jennifer Soros, was a major donor to James’ AG campaign.

The NRA responded to AG James’ lawsuit by filing a civil suit against James, accusing her of defamation and violation of First Amendment free speech rights.

As reported by Fox News, the NRA’s law suit asserts that James had “made the political prosecution of the NRA a central campaign theme” when she ran for attorney general in 2018, and that “Despite hopes that playing by the rules would procure a just outcome, the NRA has not been treated fairly by James’s office. The New York Democratic Party political machine seeks to harass, defund, and dismantle the NRA because of what it believes and what it says.”

The NRA claims defamation on the grounds that James labels the gun rights organization “criminal enterprise” and “terrorist organization”. The San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors had also officially declared the NRA a “terrorist organization”.

Whatever does “any mismanaged funds were used to donate to political campaigns” mean? Many organizations (including the government) mismanage funds. And isn’t the NRA allowed to donate to political campaigns just like PP does?

What a big political attack right during an election. So obvious.

The continued harassment of those who are proponents of conservative ideals just sickens me. This woman is just out of control.

She and Andrew Cuomo should be locked up. Speaking of which, Sheldon Silver is supposed to report to Federal Prison on August 26th. Dean Skelos has been released from Federal custody after serving 14 months. 2 of the 3 that rammed NY-SAFE up New Yorker’s asses are convicted felons and Cuomo should be too

This ignorant, blow hard quota-filler needs to think long and hard about why there’s a Second Amendment.
Same thing for the bug-eyed, mini-Mussolini spawn of Mafiosa Mario.

I would like to thank Ms James for this generous “gift” of anti-second-amendment rights demoratics less than 100 days out from a Trump re-election campaign. This is worth a lot of Republican mileage…and I can’t wait for the fallout.

Seems to me that if any of the NRA officers committed embezzlement, then they should be charged with such offenses. The NRA as an organization has nothing to do with the allegations leveled by this obviously unhinged leftist idiot. I mean just look at her picture and you can understand her values or lack thereof. On top of that it is up to the NRA to complain to law enforcement. Not the other way around. I hope the NRA sues her and the state of new york for 1 Billion dollars. And while they’re at it drag that idiot cuomo… Read more »

“She” (Letitia James) looks like a man.
