In a surprise move of events, the National Rifle Association has decided to vacate the city of New York and move to the more conservative state of Texas. Over the past couple of years, the NRA has come under fire for its beliefs and standards when it comes to gun rights. Since America was founded, it has been every citizen’s right to own a firearm. While this right has come under fire in the last couple of years, majority of Americans still believe in owning a weapon in order to protect themselves.
Releasing a statement about the move, the executive vice president of the NRA, Wayne LaPierre, stated, “We are DUMPING New York, and we are pursuing plans to reincorporate the NRA in Texas. To facilitate the strategic plan and restructuring, the NRA and one of its subsidiaries have filed voluntary chapter 11 petitions in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division. As you may know, chapter 11 proceedings are often utilized by businesses, nonprofits and organizations of all kinds to streamline legal and financial affairs.”
“We are leaving the state of an attorney general who, just a few months ago, vowed to put us out of business through an abuse of legal and regulatory power. In fact, the gross overreach of the New York Attorney General and New York Governor has been resoundingly criticized by powerful national groups like the ACLU and a host of prominent legal scholars. …Under this plan, we seek protection from New York officials who illegally abused and weaponized the powers they wield against the NRA and its members.”
For those unaware, since the Democrats took control of New York, their Governor Andrew Cuomo has made it one of his personal mission to tear apart the NRA and everything it stands for. But it isn’t just Cuomo, the New York Attorney General Letitia James, another Democrat, also decided to go after the NRA in the form of a lawsuit. James wasn’t happy with just attacking the NRA on Twitter, she went a step further by introducing the “Dissolve the NRA” lawsuit to the courts.
While the NRA did fill for Chapter 11, the association wanted all its members to know that the organization is not in financial trouble but instead making the move for restructuring reasons. Recently, the Democrats have pushed theories and fake news that the NRA is in financial trouble due to mismanagement and fraud, but there has been no evidence to back up these claims.
Either way, with the NRA moving out and Cuomo throwing the state into another recession due to the unnecessary COVID-19 mandates, New York could be facing a dilemma at which it has never seen, and it all thanks to – the Democrats.
