Republican Attorney’s General Association Responds to Attack on NRA

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- August 6th, 2020 – The New York Attorney General, a liberal Democrat, today filed a lawsuit seeking to dissolve the National Rifle Association. Republican Attorneys General Association Chairman Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry released the following statement in response to this manipulation of our legal system for political gain.

“Lawless liberals have hit a new low in their pursuit of defunding the police, discarding the Second Amendment, and deterring our ability to protect ourselves. The New York Attorney General is shamefully abusing her power to target a political adversary, the same way a Saint Louis prosecutor did last month when she took guns away from citizens trying to protect themselves. This action is no different than what Democrats did during the shameful impeachment of President Trump: an attempt to use the levers of government to go after political opponents.

“From their endorsement of the “defund the police” movement to canceling our Founding Fathers, and now canceling our founding principles, there has been a troubling pattern from the Democrat attorneys general in recent months. We must stop the madness. Fortunately, the American people can read the tea leaves of this lawsuit – it is a partisan hit job aimed at empowering the mob and endangering law-abiding citizens, who respect the Second Amendment.”

About RAGA:

The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) is the only national organization whose mission is electing Republicans to the Office of State Attorney General (AG). RAGA collaborates with our current Republican attorneys general and recruits outstanding candidates, providing them assistance with research, message development, and financial support.

In 1999, five Republican AGs formed RAGA to address the lack of commitment by their Democrat counterparts to defend federalism, adhere to the law, and apply a commonsense, free market approach to governing. Since then, RAGA has multiplied its effectiveness, and in 2019 helped elect all three Republican attorneys general candidates in a clean sweep, securing a majority of Republican AGs across the country. This success is a direct result of our high-quality candidates and strong financial support from our members.

Why was NRA still “incorporated…..whatever the correct term is” in NY??? Seems like gross leadership malfeasance.

It seems as though these guys are angry about not getting anymore kickbacks, parties, or safaris. Its alright there will be more, the legal system is all about money anyways.

As much as I detest them trying to tear down any gun rights groups, I detest corruption more so. The NRA fits perfectly with those corrupt individuals trying them. If they want to get those corrupt, embezzling Rinos out of there so groups that actually fight for our rights, can step into the spotlight fine by me.
Its the legal precedent being set in the process that has me worried.

Could it be that this liberal Democrat AG is unintentionally doing us all a favor? I mean, if she snares LaPierre in some wrongdoing and makes him go away, I only see that as a plus. Given how the NRA has Negoitiated our Rights Away for years and their ILA has kept many a turncoat incumbent safe from newcomer challengers who were more pro-gun than the incumbent, how is its demise a bad thing for us? This might spell greatly increased membership and donations for GOA and other organizations that actually help our cause.

This outdoor set terrible precedents. If she wins, case will be used to justify all manner of politically motivated prosecution of political advocacy organizations. If she loses it will cement wlp’s power and make legal action even more difficult against corporate leaders o abuse their power. I would like to see three things come out of this case (1) James gets thoroughly spanked (in legal sense) (2) Massive growth of the other (honest) organizations. GOA, RTKBA, SAF, etc. (3) Board recognized what a liability WLP is, boots him and sues to recover some of organizations loses, then reorganizes – revitalizes… Read more »

I don’t what assets the NRA holds, but Whittington Range in Northern NM is a really nice place.

I suspect the person who donated the Whittington property built a performance standard of some sort into the agreement that would return the property to the donor should NRA fail to perform.

All that to say: if NRA goes down, NY State will likely not take possession of Whittington. I’d guess other high-value assets will be similarly protected.

But with WLP, anything is possible.
