Can't say that I'm surprised. Between the Ack-Mc and Ollie/Chris Cox scandals NY's A.G. just got in line and waited for the other shoe to drop.

Remember the old saying, "A fish rots from the head".

Fuck NRA. All my donations have always gone to NAGR National Association for Gun Rights and GOA Gun Owners of America.

NRA has never been, in my lifetime, about anything beyond their self-sustaining interest. Don't get me started on how much $$$$ they wasted on magazines and shit giveaways and other projects.

Like every other special interest group, all they’ve ever cared about are their clients: politicians they own & their corporate industry puppet masters. They're a PAC for the U.S. gun manufacturing industry -- which is acceptable. But NOT/NEVER an advocate for the rights of law-abiding citizen gun owning 2nd amendment supporters. They’ve eroded and harmed our rights more than helped, which includes stupid mind boggling shitty PR statements after incidents.

And they NEVER gave a shit for or advocated for our sweet imported rifles and cheap ammo. There's a long list of other gun rights NRA capitulations they're guilty of someone else will be able to provide. FUCK NRA. Good riddance.

Maybe the accused can be sent away for good, long time, this historically important organization resurrected? I don't know. It may really need to get blown up. FACT: there are a whole lot Democratic politicians on local/federal level who are NRA members, gun owners, defenders.

Maybe just hang Wayne and his cohorts from an overpass? And then hope they can restructure and move on?

So what? Clinton Foundation has done the same thing. At least the NRA tries to do something. ....

Just kidding. But just because there is largess in right wing orgs doesn't mean ... well you know man...the thing.

Stupid talk, the left FEARS the NRA, and blame them for Trumps victory, further, the NRA cost Bush the first his re-election, you must be a bit new to the gun scene to understand how important the NRA has been, and been important long before the groups you mentioned ever existed, by decades, if not centuries.

There is nothing wrong with supporting the other groups, but don't stand here and do the work of the liberals for them by tearing down THE gun rights group.

Send them all to jail, that's fine if they did what is said, but, tell me why the AG filed a lawsuit instead of pursuing legal charges?

The only reason there were no charges is because they don't have a legal case, they want to bleed out the NRA because they were going to spend millions on this election to support Trump, and THAT is the reason why it happened now.

You must be stupid if you can't see that.

Civil litigation is much easier. Criminal prosecutions may be coming. If Wayne LaPierre is not sleeping well there is a reason.

... :roll:
Agree. As I also said -- although my suggested consequence was slightly more, er...enhanced.

My understanding is the lawsuit is about extreme violations of the tenets of their status as a 501c3 organization. All non-profits are subject to the same scrutiny. Countless non-profits have been shut down for the same reasons. It's all based on unscrupulous business decisions, practices, management, etc. As BillT said, criminal charges could very well follow. But the lawsuit isn't about that being easier, it's painly and simply about their alleged business practices as a 501c3 organization*, how they ran the NRA, self-dealing, misuse of funds (yours, if you're an NRA member, might've paid for Wayne's clothes, family trips, million dollar contracts "after" he leaves, among other things), among other allegations.





*DumbFucks running it should've known better. You'd think they'd possess at least half as much intelligence required to run a regular 501c3 considering...considering, literally, global focus and awareness on them. We'll set aside any Russian $$$$$ they may or may not be connected to for another time.

I've noticed that some folks reach a point where they really, honestly, truly BELIEVE their shit doesn't stink.

Consequences follow.

blm is not a non-profit, so unless there is some specific felonious act that can be proved, their books won't be open. They have filed for non-profit status, and that could be a double edged sword. As for the NRA, Wayne is proof of the statement, "Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely" Far too long he and his buddies in crime have been ripping off the membership, and they all need to go.

Doubt they're going after the NRA cuz WLP bought fancy suits and a house. Does anyone really need to be protected from W4yn3 LaPl3rr3?

They are going after the NRA because if they're being sued, it'll look bad if they donate to Trump's re-election fund.
