New York Attorney General Files Lawsuit to Dissolve NRA

What was done:

  • New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Thursday that her office has filed a lawsuit against the NRA (National Rifle Association) and its leadership with the goal of dissolving the organization.

  • Many of the charges are tied to the NRA's status as a charitable organization, as that status maintains strict state and federal rules governing spending.

  • NRA CEO and Executive Vice President, Wayne LaPierre is named in the suit.

What was said:

  • James accused the organization of having "instituted a culture of self-dealing mismanagement" taking millions of dollars for personal use and granting contracts that benefited the leaders' families and associates.

  • Says James "The NRA's influence has been so powerful that the organization went unchecked for decades while top executives funneled millions into their own pockets".
