New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a lawsuit seeking to dissolve the National Rifle Association, claiming it undercut its non-profit status by allowing executives to use its treasury as a “personal piggy bank.” The attorney general is accusing four current or former executives of the NRA, the nation’s most vocal and potent gun lobby, of diverting tens of millions of dollars for private jets, luxury gifts and no-show contracts for former employees. Here’s what you need to know. Aired on 8/6/2020.

    Looks like NRA members are just as gullible as Trump supporters. Oh, wait – they’re the same people!

  2. Between grifters and traitors (i.e., their ‘red-headed Butina’💋), the “NRA” *really does* represent the republican ‘party’ nowadays… 😏

  3. Silver lining during pandemic … no school, no school shootings.

      @Ditem Kopse blm definitely does not represent you. mostly privileged white kids with to much time on their hands and faux outrage until the next trend kicks in.

    • @Domepeace_ltd productions When whites get on our side is when things happen , When the first white civil rights workers were killed in 1964s in Mississippi Andrew Goodman ,MIKE Schwerner . Thats when the FBI were sent and people charged . These white kids will be your downfall , Racism will become less popular and neanderthals like you will crawl back under the rock you slimed out of ..

    • @Domepeace_ltd productions waiting for what this gordon park high means , i know you are stupid . but use the two brain cells you have and explain yourself .

    • @Domepeace_ltd productions racism will not elect Trump . get back under your rock .

  4. NRA ‘nothing to see here’……none of your money anyway.

  5. NATIONAL, RACKET…
    … ASSOCIATION.
    “Move to the W.H.”

  6. The funnel Putin used to pour his filthy money to the GOP. Really patriotic, guys.

  7. Move to Texas and break laws brazenly.

  8. That’s right NRA, become a fugitive like tRump.

  9. Trump /GOP : Our NRA blood money is more important than your dead children…

      @Domepeace_ltd productions They are actually giving any legitimate businesses a nice insurance paycheck.

    • The leftist parasite cultist pigs are a clear threat to a safe and free society. They need to be eradicated from the very fabric of it.

  10. How is wayne LaPierre is allowed to be so beyond laws? Is there any crime thst he can be accounted for ?

    • He has been advising Trump how to do it.

      How is every Senator and House Representative of ANY party millionaires within 10 years of office? Insider trading.. The law I am not allowed to break that every single year I have to take a class lesson on at work to remind me that it is illegal.. Stop acting like Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi are the embodiment of the Virgin Mary and then maybe you could answer your own question.

    Vote him OUT!!

  12. Why is Trump recommending Texas? We don’t want those fraudsters here.

    • @velt Ski Nah, I’m a Texan who owns plenty of guns and folks like you are part of the reason I’ll never vote for Trump. Trump himself also convinced a lot of us not to vote for him as well.

      BECAUSE TEXAS REPUBLICANS ALL GET MONEY FROM NRA AND PROMOTING GUNS TO WHITE EXTREMIST AND WEAPONIZES AMERICAN

    • @Todd Toure Yes lol. It is definitely the right wingers that are the nut jobs.

    I dont care if the NRA spends republican money on themselves. Good, let the repulcian dogs waste away their money to the NRA Gods.

    • Yes, but they are also using Republican money to push an agenda that is likely not yours. The only people who get trumps ear are the rich and if you are funneling Republican money into your pocket as the head of the RNA then you have his ear.

    • Dogs are good..

      @Dean Clark This is true. I thought the very same thing after posting.

    Texas doesn’t have protections on non-profits stealing donations?

  15. Sure take financial advice from a guy who does not pay his own bills and bilks others out of their money.

    • That’s the best person to take advice from. Why pay for something when you can get dumb-dumbs to buy them for you, and with smiles on their faces. PT Barnum once said, ‘there’s a sucker born every minute.’

      Leo Peridot 😂🤣👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽💯💯💯

  16. John Lewis/John McCain dead: who?

    NRA: oh no! Save the NRA.

  17. Is it legal in your country for charities to donate to politicians and political campaigns?

  18. Eduardo Landolt | August 7, 2020 at 7:27 AM | Reply

    Has he asked Texas about that?, or is Texas one of his business…

  19. Everyone who gets involved with Trump loses. Roger Ailes, Steve Bannon, Omarosa, Michael Cohen, NRATV, all in trouble.

      America is built on the system of liabilities and Lawsuits! You cannot stop something in america until it kills someone, unless you sue before it does?
