#1 AG James is correct that there were many financial misdeeds in the NRA but this is a truly weird lawsuit.

If financial misdeeds can be used to require de registration of non profit groups, then it can justify de registration of such orgs as the Red Cross, the democrat and republican party, planned parenthood and many, many more.

#2 The suit charges the NRA Republicans Democrats Congresswith "awarding contracts to the financial gain of close associates and family, and appearing to dole out lucrative no-show contracts to former employees in order to buy their silence and continued loyalty," James's office said in a statement.

#4 Yes. Any organization in NY that commits financial mismanagement ought to be disbanded.

#6 Have they been convicted of anything?

Direct assault upon the 1st Amendment right of free association, right of free speech. See, its not just about the 2d Amendment. Time to get serious and use TITLE 18, U.S.C., SECTION 242 against the perp.

#11 I thought Wayne LaPierre had been canned by the members. Screwing with funds for personal use.

#12 She is doing more to boost revenue for the NRA than any other event. Watch the dollars roll in.

#14  Why all female African American DA's look the same to me?

I’m sure the Soros PAC (or those of the other Progressive multibillionaires who like to spend their couch change this way) finding and funding them also provides training in dress and general appearance to all their candidates, not just the female African-Americans.

#15 New York seeks to break up National Rifle Association, alleging financial mismanagement

..and then there is Congress which makes the NRA look like little kids lemonade stand by comparison if you want to talk financial mismanagement. Then we can start with all the state governments and their public employee ponzi pension plans.

#16 Oliver North forced out as NRA president amid bitter power struggle
This article is more than 1 year old
North, in conflict with chief executive Wayne LaPierre, says he was ‘informed’ he would not be renominated when term ends

Secrecy, Self-Dealing, and Greed at the NRA
The organization’s leadership is focused on external threats, but the real crisis is of its own making.

Interesting read
