NRA Director Proposed as Intervenor After New York Court Setback for NRA Members


No one thinks NRA is the only thing Letitia James is demanding to destroy, do they? (New York State Attorney General/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -( National Rifle Association Director Roscoe B. Marshall, Jr. filed supporting papers Friday requesting oral argument for his  Notice of Motion to Intervene in the case of New York v NRA with the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, Commercial Division.  The action follows a disappointment for the intervention effort when earlier this month Judge Joel Cohen denied the motion to intervene by NRA members, Frank Tait and Mario Aguirre.

“But he said the members’ cause needed to be heard, and he would consider other ways of letting them participate,” the NRA In Danger blog reported at the time. “There was a report of a director going to join in, which would have helped their motion a lot, but it sounds like there is still a chance that he will come in.”

That report came from an exclusive AmmoLand article on the case from the week before when the attorney for Tait and Aguirre informed Judge Cohen such a development was anticipated and impending.  A legal source contributing to that report asserted a director joining the effort would bolster its chances for approval.

“The Proposed Intervenor is a Director of the National Rifle Association (‘NRA’) and has the statutory right … to assert derivative claims on its behalf,” the Notice of Motion for Marshall’s inclusion declares, further asserting:

“The Proposed Intervenor has a real and substantial interest in the issues and subject matter of this action, and although he will be bound by the judgment his interests will not and cannot be adequately represented by the present parties. This action involves the disposition of tangible and intangible property, and the impairment of the Proposed Intervenor’s constitutional rights, and his interests may be affected adversely by the judgment. The Proposed Intervenor has claims and defenses that have questions of controlling law and fact in common with this action. The Proposed Intervenor seeks to assure that the NRA as an entity has independent, conflict-free counsel. The law firm presently representing the NRA is irreconcilably conflicted and the NRA is alleged by the Attorney General to be controlled by one or more of the individual defendants. Thus no present party or law firm can adequately protect the NRA’s rights as an entity separate from the individual defendants.”

Additional related filings (see #377 through #390), accessible from the court website, include:

A hearing on the motion to allow Marshall’s intervention has been requested for October 12th, 2021. Stay tuned for updates.

The Moms Demand Action group exhibits many of the 10 signs of being a cult. (see internet for signs) The most important sign, members of this cult are not individually permitted to speak publicly on the subject of gun control. NOT only do they dislike the 2nd amendment, the 1st is not a favorite either. A Jonestown in the making.


The Progressive New Left on whole is a cult. Any subgroup originating from that ideological mother ship will be a cult. So it goes for the Brady Bunch, the Moms, the Me Too, BLM, Planned Parenthood et al. Read the Prairie Fire Manifesto to understand their Gospel of Cultural Marxism. If my words sound strange to you it is because the other cults in American politics, the Democrat and Republican parties have failed in their primary mission to educate the public on politics and political philosophy. That is why the right in America gets ambushed by the Left at every… Read more »


A Jonestown in the making… WE CAN ONLY HOPE!

NRA…NRA. Seems like I remember a group by that name. Means Not Relevant Anymore right?

Henry Bowman

Wow, good one. Very fitting. However, I’ll stick to my nickname for them, for the time being.


Negotiating Rights Away


What a bunch of turds. They just need regular bandit masks to fulfill their true jobs. Robbing the people the ‘serve”. Make me puke.


The photo looks just like the olden days where a gang would be posing with all their hardware for a photo while getting ready to rob a bank.


So, New Yorkers don`t have the guts to tell their so called representatives to ” F ” off ? I told mine in Ia.

Henry Bowman

I rather wished it would’ve been Allen West, but Roscoe will do for the time being… I don’t think he’s one of Wayne’s ‘yes men’… hope I’m not wrong, either.


Letitia James needs to be drowned in the Hudson River along with Wayne LaPierre!


Look at the two plastic barrels…all the rifles are missing butt plates. They are just props from some gunsmith’s junk pile. You see no actions or barrels.

Yeah..I remember GOA and SAF scaring the communist democrats on capitol hill.
Oh, wait, only NRA scares the commiecrats.
LaPierre sucks. Still, they have the clout. So, if you wimps cannot even control the NRA, a fight to keep Rights is out of the question.
You limps like to talk tough, BUT YOU DO NOTHING!

It is to laugh.


MORE lies from WAPO? How easily you are conned.
Again, I find you LAZY, too lazy to research the facts and EAGER to believe the leftist lies.
Good, democrat stooge.


Trump applauded Florida’s red flag laws on live TV, you idiot.

J Gibbons

Trump was very far from perfect, especially on the 2A. However, he was infinitely better than the “leadership” we have right now in the WH and US House.


Yes, Trump is less bad than Biden and many U.S. legislators when it comes to the 2nd Amendment. tetejaun’s defense of Trump’s anti 2nd Amendment efforts only encourages other Republican politicians (like the militiary veteran DeSantis who supports red flag laws and encourages their use). If they are not called out on their push for gun control, Republican politicians will keep doing it in an effort to court the vote of white suburban women (who, as a voting demographic, mistakenly believe the government can protect their children with more gun laws). Smaller slices of cake removal is not something to… Read more »


Steve Martin couldn’t do worse.


Yes he did. Trump was there for one purpose. So that the one world morons could divide us to figure out who to go after.


Bidens doing a great job of that.


Yes, I remember this. Again, you did not watch ALL of it and you did not read Trump’s book.
His style is to offer MORE than the opposition wants, that way he can see their TRUE desires.
AGAIN YOU RAN WITH THE LEFTIST LIES AND DID NOT FOLLOW UP YOURSELF. You are so lazy, you believed the leftist media.
Your argument is found wanting.


I got an autographed copy of his book from him personally and I read it.

I watched all of it.

I saw how he came through on his promise on that part of the gun control that he vowed to take care of personally.

I saw him do nothing with the “Second Amendment Coalition” he promised days before the election and then his son got distracted with big floppy things that Newsome tired of and did nothing with the “coalition.”

You lack critical thinking skills.

Still running with the same lies.
You must be an inspiration to democrats all around.
I laugh at your poor attempt.


I never voted for a Democrat in my life.

You are responsible for Republicans being able to get away with pushing never-ending gun control.


Butters and Fudds are cancer.


135 Republicans just joined Democrats in passing red flag law. It would not have passed w/o them.
