N.R.A. declares bankruptcy

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Seeking an end-run around an investigation by the New York attorney general, the National Rifle Association said Friday that it was declaring bankruptcy and would reincorporate in Texas. The gun group was set up in New York after the Civil War.

The group’s effort to circumvent New York’s legal jurisdiction raised immediate questions from Letitia James, the New York attorney general and a Democrat, who is seeking to use her regulatory authority to dissolve the N.R.A. She has been conducting an investigation into corruption at the gun group since 2019.

Sounds about right.  Since a corporation is an entity, if it is corrupt and ruined you can just kill it and start a new one. Erik Prince did similar things with Blackwater: Same Blackwater, Different Names - ABC News (go.com)

Moving to Texas is out of the question. They are a (supposedly) charitable organization,  and as such, they need permission from the NYAG, the Supreme Court of New York. Their big mistake was saying that they had lots of money for the move. Lapierre is/was nothing more than another grifting Republican who got to greedy, and comfortable. Texas can cheer them on all they want, it's not going to happen.

From Letitia James (in August) as she's already 6 steps ahead of these idiots:

of course they will continue to be involved , about 2 dozen  of courtiers export guns to usa,  

actually right now demand for guns outstrips supply, by far, gun stores are basically empty, i've never seen anything like this ever, and prices tripled since last time i bought one,   it is a good time for any county to make good money by exporting guns to usa. guns  will sell faster than  they can bring them in, same for ammo

That is kind of a turn around isn't it?  Usually we are the ones selling arms.  Has that business been taken over by China too?  Can't we make anything in America?

Thank goodness it’s not the National Restaurant Association going bankrupt. I’m one of the folks that sees N.R.A. and thinks of food instead of guns.

The NRA isn't broke. Declaring Chapter 11 is tactical as it halts all pending litigation for one year, by which time the NRA headquarters will be snugly ensconced in a friendly State which has 400,000 members.

brazil and Turkey are leading exporters,   even Croatia exports  guns to usa, more so than Canada.

there are other gun rights groups. nra is far from the only one.    in 2020 alone 5 more million people became new gun owners, at very least,  i personally know 4 people who never touched guns, but after antifa\blm riots they saw the necessity and bought guns

The NRA sucks. I wouldn’t support them over several better organizations. They are sell outs.

Forgive me if I'm not exactly feeling sorry for the group that's done more to cause the mass shooting epidemic we're dealing with then anything short of 'girls actually having standards'.
