The National Rifle Association is shutting down operations in New York and moving to Texas as part of its bankruptcy restructuring.
The NRA has long been fighting New York state as the leftist stronghold has done everything in its power to destroy the oldest and one of the most powerful 2nd Amendment advocacy organizations.
NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre sent out a letter to supporters announcing the move saying, “Today, the NRA announced a restructuring plan that positions us for the long-term and ensures our continued success as the nation’s leading advocate for constitutional freedom – free from the toxic political environment of New York.”
LaPierre also explained the organization’s strategy that they are using to exit New York. “To facilitate the strategic plan and restructuring, the NRA and one of its subsidiaries have filed voluntary chapter 11 petitions in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division. As you may know, chapter 11 proceedings are often utilized by businesses, nonprofits, and organizations of all kinds to streamline legal and financial affairs.”
The NRA has faced numerous lawsuits and engaged in countless legal fights in New York. Texas should be a more natural fit for the 150-year-old organization.
The NRA’s importance will only increase now that the Democrat party has seized control of both chambers of Congress and the White House.
