New York’s AG Seeks To Dissolve NRA, Leftists Freak Out At Americans’ Response

New York’s attorney general sued the National Rifle Association on Thursday, seeking to put the powerful gun advocacy organization out of business. The NRA claims this was a “baseless, premeditated attack on our organization and it’s a transparent attempt to score political points and attack the leading voice in opposition to the leftist agenda.” Patriotic Americans along with Donald Trump also had a response which immediately caused the leftists to freak out.

Attorney General Leticia James’ lawsuit, filed in state court in Manhattan after an 18-month investigation, highlighted alleged misspending and self-dealing allegations that have roiled the NRA and its longtime leader, Wayne LaPierre, in recent years — from hair and makeup for his wife to a $17 million post-employment contract for himself.

The New York attorney general only cares about LaPierre and what he does with his money as a political shake-down to stop the powerful NRA which lends so much support to President Donald Trump’s campaign.

“Simultaneously, the Washington, D.C. attorney general sued the NRA Foundation, a charitable arm of the organization designed to provide programs for firearm safety, marksmanship and hunting safety, accusing it of diverting funds to the NRA to help pay for lavish spending by its top executives,” Breitbart reports. 

So, this was a coordinated attack which the president weighed in on:

“Just like Radical Left New York is trying to destroy the NRA, if Biden becomes President your GREAT SECOND AMENDMENT doesn’t have a chance. Your guns will be taken away, immediately and without notice. No police, no guns!” tweeted Trump.

Trump’s War Room added: “1 YEAR AGO: Joe Biden said ‘bingo!’ when asked if he was ‘gonna come for’ Americans’ guns. He’s become an empty vessel for anti-Second Amendment radicals, but President Trump will always protect your right to bear arms!”

Pro-Second-Amendment Americans banned together on social media to respond by saying Planned Parenthood is now fair game to be shut down. 

“Planned Parenthood, you’re on the clock,” tweeted Stephen Miller, who was responding to a post that said: “NRA could be dirty to its core. Beats me. But do we want state AGs going after [organizations] because they hate their politics, seeing if they can dig up dirt to eradicate [organizations] whose politics they despise? This could bode poorly for a great many [organizations], even if just the cost of defense.”

“Children killed by the NRA: 0 Children killed by Planned Parenthood: Over 320,000 every year,” tweeted Prager U.

“RT if you think Republican AGs should sue to dissolve Planned Parenthood!” tweeted Nick Adams.

“NY AG wants to ‘dissolve the NRA in its entirety’ by weaponizing the IRS just like Obama used to. Now do a full audit on BLM, Fed Reserve, and Planned Parenthood,” tweeted candidate Josh Barnett.

“Someone should use the exact language of this lawsuit to seek to dissolve Planned Parenthood. @NRA hasn’t killed a soul yet Planned Parenthood kills hundreds of thousands every year,” tweeted Danielle D’Souza Gill, who is the daughter of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza.

“Lol ok Republican AGs you are up and Planned Parenthood is waiting,” tweeted Leon Wolf.

Let’s be clear. We have no idea if Wayne LaPierre misappropriated NRA funds. The point is the NRA is a private organization and we think New York’s AG has bigger fish to fry. This is clearly an election-year ploy to help Joe Biden and defeat Trump.

“This was a baseless, premeditated attack on our organization and the Second Amendment freedoms it fights to defend,” NRA posted. “You could have set your watch by it: the investigation was going to reach its crescendo as we move into the 2020 election cycle. It’s a transparent attempt to score political points and attack the leading voice in opposition to the leftist agenda. This has been a power grab by a political opportunist – a desperate move that is part of a rank political vendetta.”

“Our members won’t be intimidated or bullied in their defense of political and constitutional freedom. As evidenced by the lawsuit filed by the NRA today against the NY AG, we not only will not shrink from this fight – we will confront it and prevail,” they added.

Leftists on social media freaked out.

“Planned Parenthood prevents more abortions than pro-lifers do,” tweeted one upset leftist who was highlighting this tweet: “Super f*cking annoyed watching Republicans say that we should dissolve Planned Parenthood like the NRA. They can’t get it through their f*cking heads that PP provides many different services to women to keep them healthy throughout their lives.”

These leftwing responses were fraught with misinformation and outright lies about Planned Parenthood. However, the pro-gun response was spot on. If these radical Democrat attorney generals are going to start political prosecutions against private organizations, then let’s do Planned Parenthood.

God knows that the abortion mill has killed millions of African-Americans that you’d think Black Lives Matter would be on board to shut them down. Blacks are five times more likely to get abortions than whites. We know there have been roughly 50 million abortions in the United States since 1973.

We bet this isn’t a road the leftists want to go down. It shows their utter hypocrisy. Let the NRA sort out their own problems, if they truly have any. But we must also thank the New York attorney general for shedding much-needed light on the horrors of Planned Parenthood.
