NRA Says It’s in Deep Financial Trouble, May Be ‘Unable to Exist’

The National Rifle Association may soon be “unable to exist” or “pursue its advocacy mission” because the gun rights group is in profound financial jeopardy, according to a legal complaint obtained by Rolling Stone.

According to the complaint, an ongoing lawsuit against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York state financial regulators has bled the NRA dry and the not-for-profit is facing “irrecoverable loss and irreparable harm.”

In recent months, New York took action to ban the sale of “Carry Guard,” an NRA-branded insurance for NRA members that was designed to help cover the legal fees after a member fired a legal gun. The state ruled in May that the liability insurance was illegal and the NRA’s insurance companies stopped selling it, according to Rolling Stone.

Boo-friggedy-hoo (and I'm a life-long gun owner and NRA Distinguished Expert in smallbore) who has grown tired of the NRA as it has morphed from an advocate for sportsmen to an advocate for manufacturers and gun nuts.

Sounds like they're trying to get out ahead of their collusion with the Ruskie oligarchs. The rats are running for their boltholes.

They should not have given away so much of their money to politicians.

How and why did the NRA get such a windfall to spend on GOP politicians? Laundering money perhaps?
