New York thinks it can destroy all resistance to their plans with this one move.
But they’ve picked the wrong battle.
Democrats hope this jaw-dropping lawsuit will swing the 2020 election.
The National Rifle Association isn’t what the Democrats think it is by any stretch on the imagination.
Every time the Democrats can’t pass the gun law they want they blame it on the NRA because the NRA makes a convenient bogey man for the left to blame their failures on.
The NRA is usually in the room trying to compromise gun control legislation instead of fighting to defeat gun-grabbing politicians and their Constitution shredding schemes. Even the Washington Post is smart enough to realize that destroying the NRA won’t accomplish anything.
“What the left never seems to get is that the NRA and other conservative groups get their political power from the people. If the NRA were dissolved, gun owners and manufacturers would simply turn to another, better-run entity to advance their cause.” Henry Olsen wrote in an opinion piece for the Washington Post.
The National Association for Gun Rights says that the NRA hasn’t been using effective methods to fight for second amendment rights for years and that a grassroots effort works far better than government lobbying.
“The NRA is not the Second Amendment,” NAGR President Dudley Brown told Newsweek. “In fact, they have been AWOL from the fight for decades.”
But Brown added that the lawsuit against the NRA is still “convenient” political persecution.
If the allegations against the NRA are true, even if only in part, and it actually lost $64 million dollars over the course of three years then the people responsible should face the consequences of their actions, there is absolutely no reason for the NRA to be dissolved.
It’s clearly a partisan attack that’s designed to tie up the NRA right before the election.
The lawsuit comes right as the organization was ready to spend tens of millions of dollars in battleground states during the 2020 election.
“The NRA has full confidence in its accounting practices and commitment to good governance,” the NRA said in a statement responding to the lawsuit. “The association’s financials are audited and its tax filings are verified by one of the most reputable firms in the world. Internally, the association has an appropriate conflict of interest policy, which provides that all potential conflicts are reviewed and scrutinized by the audit committee.”
It’s a stupid move on the part of the Democrats as a record number of Americans buy guns.
Gun owners make up a formidable bloc of voters in key battleground states.
Joe Biden may lose states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin because some working class voters that may have been willing to consider his campaign now associate Biden with radical anti-gun Democrats.
