The National Rifle Association (NRA) just received some terrible news and the White House is stunned. Millions of NRA members across the country can’t believe the announcement, either. This is shocking.
According to Breitbart News, New York Attorney General Letitia James — a far-left, anti-gun Democrat — has “filed a lawsuit … in which she called for the dissolution of the National Rifle Association.” It was filed just a few days ago.
“The NRA’s influence has been so powerful that the organization went unchecked for decades while top executives funneled millions into their own pockets,” said James’ office in a statement, even calling the NRA’s operation “illegal.”
In addition to the organization dissolving, James wants NRA Executive VP Wayne LaPierre to step down in the meantime and has called for him and three other NRA leaders to return their “inflated salaries” to the organization’s members.
First of all, it is the role of the NRA’s members to hold the organization accountable — if they don’t like how business is being handled, they can call for change. But it is obvious James’ lawsuit is nothing more than election-year politics.
“You could have set your watch by it: the investigation was going to reach its crescendo as we move into the 2020 election cycle,” said NRA President Carolyn Meadows. “It’s a transparent attempt to score political points.”
