Revolver Analysis: New York AG Plans to Turn NRA’s Assets into “Black Lives Matter” Slush Fund

In a development that should shock nobody, the National Rifle Association’s lawsuit trying to cancel a judge and his friends for racism earned them absolutely no credit from the left.

RELATED: NRA Gets “Woke” on “Racism” and Ignores Urgent Gun Rights Issues

Today, the New York Attorney General’s office announced that it is suing to dissolve the NRA completely. The suit would permanently break up the nearly 150-year-old organization, and bar four of its top officers, including executive vice president Wayne LaPierre, from serving on any New York non-profit board ever again.

The left hates the NRA for being an effective defender of American gun rights, and they want it destroyed.

That the NRA may have internal corruption is no surprise. Family kickbacks, nepotism, and embezzlement are routine among the establishment right. But even then, the solution is to prosecute the individuals responsible. Breaking up entire non-profits is supposed to be reserved for organizations that are outright scams, and not even making a serious attempt at fulfilling their stated mission.

The NRA, despite its embarrassing failure to support the McCloskeys in St. Louis, has remained a powerful organization precisely because it has consistently fought for gun rights. And of course, that is the real reason New York wants it broken up: Not because it is an ineffective sham, but precisely because it has been so effective for so many years.

But there’s an even darker intent behind what the AG’s office is doing. If the lawsuit succeeds, New York will have the power to seize the NRA’s assets (and the NRA, with millions of members, has a lot of assets). Once seized, those assets could be donated to other non-profits, with the only limitation being that donor’s judgment that these other non-profits reflect the NRA’s mission.

The NRA’s charter includes a long statement of its objectives, which includes in part:

“to promote public safety, hunter safety, hunting safely with firearms, law and order, and the national defense; to increase the knowledge of small arms and promote efficiency in the use of such arms on the part of members of law enforcement agencies, of the armed forces, and of citizens who would be subject to service in the event of war.”

The above language is likely vague enough that the left-wing ideologue appointed by New York to oversee the NRA’s assets could direct them toward organizations conservative donors would find abhorrent.

He or she could easily declare that “efficiency in the use of such arms [by] law enforcement agencies” means that the NRA’s dollars should go to a Black Lives Matter organization promoting “police reform.” Or, they may announce the protecting “public safety” and “law and order” means that, actually, the NRA’s money should go to gun control organizations pushing “effective” gun control measures to stop mass shootings.

Truthfully, they will only be limited by their own shame, and 2020 has shown that the left is totally shameless.

At today’s press conference, Attorney General Letitia James solemnly declared that “no organization is above the law.” This is a lie, of course. Thousands of businesses deliberately employ illegal immigrants, and every single one of them remains above the law, with the active assistance of the state of New York.

Antifa terrorists remain above the law as they terrorize the public and desecrate public spaces. In fact, the very idea of not being above the law seems exclusively reserved for anyone the left has designated as class enemies.

If the right wants to get serious about restoring order and justice to this country, then it had better stop playing word games over who’s “the real racist” and get “woke” to the depths of depravity emanating from the vicious and evil left.

Letitia James is a corrupt racist brown blob.she attacks the NRA but turns a blind eye to Diblasios wife who incidentally blew through 1 billion dollars of taxpayer money with no record of wher the money went. If she was a white woman or a republican she would be indicted up down and sideways. This is why I will NEVER vote for a democrat ever again

“Racist” an antiwhite hate word. It’s used to deny borders, homogeneity, self preference and preservation to ALL and ONLY white peoples, even those like the Slavs and Greeks, themselves colonized and enslaved for centuries by the very people invading them today.

“Racist” was used to demonize and then mass murder tens of millions of Russian Christians in Bolshevik Russia.

“Racist” is used to justify the ongoing gruesome rape and torture of whites in South Africa, in a place they settled 400 years ago, long before today’s dominant Bantus showed up. Unlike the Bantus, whites did not exterminate smaller and helpless tribes on the continent, and nothing in their history is remotely as cruel and evil as what’s happening right now.

Our real “privilege” is no borders. It was never “antiracism”, it was always antiwhiteism. It was never “diversity”, it was always white genocide.

The NRA should set aside enough money to conduct their legal business, then–before the court gets wind of it–undertake to refund membership fees (or donate it all to Gun Owners of America) until all remaining assets are gone. Then destroy all records, reorganize under a new name, with new leaders, and then fundraise again.

Even if that’s all illegal and the court tries to stop them, what can they really do once they liquidate? Rioting, burning, and vandalizing cities is also illegal, but that’s all being done anyhow. We’re in an age of defiance and in-your-face rebellion, so the NRA can play that game and do what they’re not supposed to do, too. Divest 100%, then the leadership can take their golden parachutes and move to a country that doesn’t extradite. Poof! Gone.

Either all that, or BLM will get the dough. Which is worse?

The NRA is incredible STUPID for being chartered in New York. They need to shift their charter to a gun-friendly state immediately.

Apparently,
Its more important for nra leadership to live in nyc and be woke than to represent the values of gun owners and their members. I am pretty sure that like everyone else they all have been working from home home so how hard is it to move the hq to texas? If they can’t figure out how to stymie this ag how are they going to be able defend and represent gun owner rights?
