The National Rifle Association has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The gun rights advocacy group says it will leave a ‘corrupt political and regulatory environment’ in New York state and instead restructure as a nonprofit in Texas.

Leadership within the pro-Second Amendment group has been under fire for misusing millions of dollars in funds. In August 2020, NY Attorney General Letitia James announced that she was suing to dissolve the NRA for ‘years of self-dealing and illegal conduct.’ The NRA responded by suing James back, claiming that she violated its First Amendment rights. ‘The NRA's claimed financial status has finally met its moral status: bankrupt,’ AG James said in a statement after the bankruptcy announcement. ‘While we review this filing, we will not allow the NRA to use this or any other tactic to evade accountability and my office’s oversight.’

According to OpenSecrets, the NRA spent more than $32.3 million on political contributions, lobbying efforts, and other outside spending during the 2020 election cycle


Yay!

Yeah how do you go bankrupt by funneling donations into lobbying efforts? Seems pretty hard to fuck up.

When lobbying is secondary to Wayne Lapierre feathering his nest.

Also, offering lifetime memberships for a one-time revenue bump is maybe not the best business model.

That is sick. The whole concept of self defense is just disgusting. When it’s your time to go, it’s your time. Who are you to play G-d?

Are you a pacifist? Is the one initiating violence not similarly playing G-d?

I believe that the sitting position is one of the most disliked military shooting stances, so its kinda funny that they were training with the Rittenhouse variant.

When you learn that the only reasonable sounding person on nextdoor is actually a massive fudd (5.56 fired at high angle can travel more than 20 miles).

They were trying to arrest a guy suspected of abusing minors, but apparently he's dead too. A shame Lon wasn't at the front of the stack.

https://news.yahoo.com/amphtml/3-neighbors-dead-following-snow-174610026.html?__twitter_impression=true

Is this just a typical philly neighborhood?

There's an associated video. The husband calls their neighbor across the way a pussy, the neighbor returns with a gun, which the husband verbally notes, and after two shots in the air does not retreat. Retardation all around to be sure.

We need to bring back duelling. No libel, no slander. If your sacred honor is harmed, take it to the dueling grounds. No bystanders harmed. Dueling might very well be lindy.

Please, do not use that r-word when posting, ss.

I feel like I've said it before, maybe it wasn't you last time, and it was just ignored. There are so many non-indirectly-offensive ways to make this point.

This didn't happen anywhere near Philly.

It was in the Pocono mountains just south of Scranton and north of where I live.

Philly is 100 miles south.

Whoever titled the article is an idiot.
