The New York Procuratorate sues the NRA, the arms lobby

The accuses – “The influence of the NRA – reads a note – was so powerful that the organization went on for decades without controls, while its leaders were making millions of dollars into their pockets”. According to the Democrat James, the president of the association and close friend of the tycoon, Wayne LaPierre, along with three other executives, would have used the donations of the members “as their own piggy bank”, spending tens of millions of dollars for personal purposes and violating laws on non-profit organizations. The allegations range from corruption, financial fraud to a casual use of the association’s money.

The investigation – The allegations emerged at the end of investigations that began in February 2019 and reached what is now a civil case. At least $ 64 million in just three years would be used by those in charge to enrich themselves, family members, friends, political allies, in violation of federal and state laws. But it could take years of legal battles before a resounding dissolution of the organization can occur.

What is the National Rifle Association – Founded in 1871 by retired army officers, after having long been little more than a sports association, it has managed to influence the chambers of politics over the past twenty years – since Wayne La Pierre became its chief executive. was able to shape political classes by supporting candidates who openly took their stand and by opposing those who supported firearms regulation.

With over 5 million members and 148 years of history behind it, it has always been the symbol of thatUS constitution amendment that protects the right of every American to own a firearm. The NRA gave Donald Trump the endorsement in both the 2016 and 2020 elections. The NRA is headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, but is registered as a nonprofit in New York.

Trump’s reaction – The president of the United States, seeing a political reason behind the judicial investigation, immediately intervened to defend the lobby that has always supported him: “Move to Texas, it would be a great state for the organization”. The president owes them a great deal. In fact, on the 2016 election, the NRA, which already controlled all the Republican senators, invested a good 30 million dollars, support that Trump has publicly acknowledged several times.


Trump: “Terrible thing”: indictment – US gun lobby NRA threatens ban

The NRA gun lobby has been preventing stricter gun laws in the United States for decades – now the state of New York wants to put an end to this. The attorney general wants to ban the organization. Years of legal battle are on the horizon, which could also play a role in the election campaign.

In the United States, the powerful and influential weapons lobby, the National Rifle Association (NRA), is threatened with extinction – New York State Attorney General Letitia James has announced plans to ban the organization. She accuses the association of corruption and mismanagement to such an extent that its non-profit status is no longer guaranteed, reports the New York Times (NYT). According to the newspaper, a quick decision is not to be expected. The anticipated litigation could last for years. The organization immediately denied the allegations and spoke of a political maneuver before the presidential election on November 3rd. It is an “attack on the leading voice of the opposition against the left-wing agenda”. US President Donald Trump called the charges “a terrible thing”.

Attorney General James said LaPierre and the other defendants viewed the organization as a “personal piggy bank” and “looted” it downright.

Attorney General James is also suing four top NRA officials, including longtime chairman Wayne LaPierre, and demanding millions from them. James is quoted as saying that they have enriched themselves, their families and allies and violated so many state and federal laws. This resulted in damage of $ 64 million. The money was not used for its actual purpose in the organization, said James. Rather, LaPierre and the three other current and former top NRA representatives would have spent the money on trips to the Bahamas, private jets and expensive food, among other things.

LaPierre and legal advisor John Frazer should also be banned from working in non-profit organizations ever again. The state of New York is responsible for the ban because the NRA is registered there as a non-profit organization. James himself is a Democrat – she had already led a process last year through which a Trump foundation was dissolved.

“The influence of the NRA was so great over the years that the organization was not vetted for decades, while top managers diverted millions into their own pockets,” the NYT quoted from a statement by the attorney general. And further: “We are striving to dissolve the NRA because no organization is above the law.” According to the newspaper, James had already announced that he would investigate the NRA when it was running for the office of attorney general. In the USA, unlike in Germany, the post is awarded by election. James had been investigating for 18 months.

The decision to take action against the gun lobby is likely to have political implications. Gun laws are a recurring topic of political debate, especially after the numerous shootings and rampages in schools and elsewhere. It is always the Democrats who demand tightening of gun laws, for example by checking buyers or banning war weapons such as assault rifles. The Republicans of US President Donald Trump always defend the right to own weapons and vehemently oppose stricter rules. Critics attribute this primarily to the great influence of the NRA: The organization can exert considerable pressure on politicians and is an important party donor.

The action against the gun lobby is likely to become an issue in the current presidential election campaign. On the one hand, it could mobilize Republican voters to vote Trump as guarantor of moderate gun law. A similar effect is conceivable in the Democratic camp. Their candidate Joe Biden had already announced that he would campaign for stricter gun laws.
