NRA files bankruptcy

Quote
WASHINGTON – The National Rifle Association said Friday that it has filed for bankruptcy as part of a larger restructuring plan aimed at moving to Texas after New York state had sought the organization’s dissolution for allegedly misappropriating funds.

The gun-rights advocacy group said it would restructure as a Texas nonprofit to exit from what it described as “a corrupt political and regulatory environment in New York,” where it is currently registered.

I wish their only problem was the state they are incorporated in.

Screw em. Where were they when Washington state needed them? Too busy piping money into oversea's accounts to worry about helping us keep our rights.

I'm a member,  clearly would describe them as necessary and not argue that they are an important tool against the erosion of our rights......but I despise them as an organization and do not agree with many of their tactics.

"Where were they when Washington state needed them?"  quote from full choke

If you will look at the "vote" count back then,  NO one showed up to vote their gun rights!  It was a mid-term, Bloomie, Gates and Allen flooded the networks with money and the "gun owners" fell asleep at the wheel! One of the lowest turnouts for a mid-term in WA! :bash:

I didn't need the NRA telling me when or how to vote,  its not rocket science.   If you don't know your enemy, they'll get you every time!

They continue, as a civilian organization, to train more people with firearms for safety and use than any other organization in the world. Their corporate problems have caused this. It's a shame.

Good.

"a corrupt political and regulatory environment in New York"- what about within their own offices?

Screw em. Where were they when Washington state needed them? Too busy piping money into oversea's accounts to worry about helping us keep our rights.

The NRA fought against I-594 and I-1639.   Are you a member ?
