The Democrats won’t stop until they take all your guns.
They’ve been chipping away at gun rights for a long time.
But an insane gun grabber just got some bad news about one Second Amendment group.
Far-left New York Attorney General Letitia James will not be able to dissolve the NRA as she had hoped.
James was attempting to use internal disputes within the group to take it down entirely.
Reuters revealed that Justice Joel Cohen “rejected the effort by New York’s attorney general to put the National Rifle Association out of business for alleged corruption, but she can still seek the ouster of the gun rights group’s longtime Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre. Attorney General Letitia James had sued the NRA in August 2020, accusing it of diverting millions of dollars to fund luxuries for officials like LaPierre, with no-show contracts for associates and other questionable expenses.”
In a 42-page decision, Cohen concluded James’ complaint “does not allege the type of public harm that is the legal linchpin for imposing the ‘corporate death penalty.’”
The NRA filed for bankruptcy in New York in an attempt to get out of the state’s onerous regulations and hostile political environment, and reincorporate in Texas.
James denied the NRA’s claims of political bias, but it’s clear that James and her fellow New York Democrats loathe gun rights.
New York consistently ranks near the bottom in gun rights among the 50 states.
And when James took office, she said her goal was to go after Donald Trump and his associates even though they had not been accused of any crimes.
James was also behind the push to get Andrew Cuomo out of office.
She clearly is a political operator.
James said in a statement:
“Today, the court affirmed my office’s right to pursue its long-standing claims that fraud, abuse, and greed permeate through the NRA and its senior leadership. While we’re heartened that the judge rejected the NRA’s attempts to thwart most of the claims in our case against the NRA, we are disappointed that the judge ruled against the dissolution portion of the case. We are considering our legal options with respect to this ruling. We remain committed to enforcing New York law regardless of how powerful any individual or organization may be.”
James’ gambit of dissolving the NRA serves as proof that the Democrats do not believe in gun rights at all.
They would shut down gun rights groups and slash the Second Amendment if they could get away with it.
