New York Guns for the NRA

It’s high noon in Manhattan. Yesterday New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit in state court aiming to dissolve the National Rifle Association, accusing its officers of illegally funding luxury lifestyles with members’ donations. Calling the New York-chartered group a “breeding ground for greed,” James said her office might also file criminal charges. The powerful gun rights advocacy group is standing its ground, however: It’s countersuing James for defamation and violating the group’s free speech rights, calling her a “political opportunist” and noting that she made battling the organization central to her election campaign.
