Judge shuts down NRA’s efforts to reorganize

A federal judge dismissed the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) bankruptcy chapter 11 filing on Tuesday.

The decision could now break down the NRA’s plans to move from leftist New York to gun-loving Texas.

In August 2020, New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a suit in which she sought to dissolve the NRA.

The Legal Challenge

“The NRA’s influence has been so powerful that the organization went unchecked for decades while top executives funneled millions into their own pockets,” James wrote.

“The NRA is fraught with fraud and abuse, which is why, today, we seek to dissolve the NRA, because no organization is above the law,” she added.

In January, the NRA filed bankruptcy in Texas. The group planned to move the organization to the gun-friendly Lone Star state as part of its future plans, according to the Texas Tribune.

The NRA’s legal battle will now continue in New York, where the organization may face a more difficult battle.

2nd Supporters Are “Triggered”

Second Amendment supporters are largely “triggered” over the situation.

“Excluding so many people from the process of deciding to file for bankruptcy, including the vast majority of the board of directors, the chief financial officer and the general counsel, is nothing less than shocking,” U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Harlin Hale wrote, according to Reuters.

“The question the court is faced with is whether the existential threat facing the NRA is the type of threat that the Bankruptcy Code is meant to protect against,” Hale added. “The court believes it is not.”

Despite any NRA wrongdoing, most Americans want to see the organization continue without ongoing legal action.

  1. This Judge ruling on the NRA is an attempt to destroy the NRA by the Democratic Judges throughout our country. These Judges do not rule by the U.S. Constitution, but instead they rule by the bench or make up their own personal decisions. That in itself shows they are controlled by the Democratic Party.

  2. Well then,why is the school union able to dictate not just the lower part of government but the democratic party that sits in the white house.I guess it is what side their money is holding up

  4. Constitutional Law is a thing of the past in most courts and the NY Attorney General knows to which court to bring her case. I do not trust and judge that is appointed by a democrat or elected in a democrat state. The NRA should, and I am sure they will, appeal this all the way to the Supreme Court. But then who knows what they are thinking these days.

  5. This judge says the American people want to do away with guns? When did she become a spokes person for the people. WE THE PEOPLE HAVE RIGHTS. Listen lady I don’t have the time to wait for police department to call labron james when an intruder or rapist or drugged out deviant trying to impose harm on me or my family

  6. NRA should be able to move where it wants without a Judge’s approval and we all know that New York is full of dishonest Left-leaning Judges and politicians so I would think that they have the right to move.

  7. Since when does a company or organization not have the right to close in one state and move to another. The judges and courts don’t have that kind of power to order a organization not to move elsewhere. That is an American freedom of movement and organizations and corporations are legally entities so they can close down like our restaurants in our state and move to another safer state. Who gave this power to this judge and prosecutor, the democratic communist party. Sue the billions out of this judge and prosecutor and get it straight in their minds we and organizations and businesses can move where we want to.
