JUST IN: NRA Scores Huge Victory

(Rallying Patriots) – The left, in their fervor to disarm Americans, has been targeting the National Rifle Association for years now. In the latest attack against the gun rights advocacy organization, New York Attorney General Letitia James attempted to completely dissolve the NRA while slandering them along the way.

Fortunately, a New York court put an end to this charade on Wednesday. New York Supreme Court Judge Joel Cohen ruled that AG James could not seek to dissolve the NRA in his ruling.

“The NRA is a prominent advocacy organization that represents the interests of millions of members who have stuck with it despite the well-publicized allegations in this and other cases,” Cohen wrote in his ruling. “The State-sponsored dissolution of such an entity is not something to be taken lightly or without a compelling need.”

“In short, the Complaint does not allege the type of public harm that is the legal linchpin for imposing the ‘corporate death penalty,’” Cohen added.

James has been trying to dissolve the NRA since August of 2020 when she filed a lawsuit claiming the organization was involved in financial misconduct on the part of top officers, including Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre.

In response, the NRA filed a countersuit which claimed James was retaliating against the group for its advocacy against gun control, which James is a vehement supporter of.

“We applaud the court’s recognition that dissolution is neither appropriate nor justified,” William A. Brewer III, partner at Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors and counsel to the NRA said in a release sent to the Daily Caller News Foundation. “We look forward to continuing the defense of the NRA – and proving that it acts in the best interests of its members and the Second Amendment freedoms in which they believe.”

“This is a resounding win for the NRA, its 5 million members, and all who believe in this organization,” NRA President Charles Cotton said. “The message is loud and clear: the NRA is strong and secure in its mission to protect constitutional freedom.”

Judge Cohen also threw out claims of unjust enrichment and violations of the Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act, “which seek essentially the same financial relief as other claims,” according to the ruling.

James expressed her “disappointment” in a Wednesday press release, and explained “that the judge ruled against the dissolution portion of the case,” and added that her office is looking into “legal options with respect to this ruling.”

It’s been clear since her 2018 campaign to become Attorney General for New York that she has a vendetta against the NRA.

“The NRA holds [itself] out as a charitable organization, but in fact, [it] really [is] a terrorist organization,” she told Ebony magazine in October 2018.

In a July 2018 press release by her campaign, James vowed to “target the NRA” and promised to “investigate the legitimacy of the NRA as a charitable institution.”

“The NRA is an organ of deadly propaganda masquerading as a charity for public good,” James said in the release.

She also told Our Time Press that she had previously “challenged the NRA and have put pressure upon the banks that finance the NRA.”

“Today’s developments underscore the simple truth that since taking office in 2019, the Attorney General has pushed a contrived narrative about the NRA in her attempt to support a dissolution claim that is improper,” Brewer said. “This is a victory for not only the NRA, but all who believe in the right to free speech and association.”

James is simply abusing the power of her office. While crime continues to skyrocket in New York, the AG is more concerned about disarming law abiding citizens than stopping dangerous and violent criminals.
