NY Attorney General Files Lawsuit to Dissolve the NRA
Updated: Sep 22
Letitia James announced the lawsuit on Twitter this morning.
New York state Attorney General Letitia James announced this morning that she has filed a lawsuit against the National Rifle Association. James tweeted, "I filed a lawsuit to dissolve the National Rifle Association for years of self-dealing and illegal conduct. The NRA is fraught with fraud and abuse. No organization is above the law."
NRA Chief Wayne LaPierre fired back at James in a series of tweets stating, "This was a baseless, premeditated attack on our organization and the Second Amendment freedoms it fights to defend. You could have set your watch by it: the investigation was going to reach its crescendo as we move into the 2020 election cycle.
It’s a transparent attempt to score political points and attack the leading voice in opposition to the leftist agenda. This has been a power grab by a political opportunist – a desperate move that is part of a rank political vendetta.
Our members won’t be intimidated or bullied in their defense of political and constitutional freedom. As evidenced by the lawsuit filed by the NRA today against the NY AG, we not only will not shrink from this fight – we will confront it and prevail."
