  1. She’s sending another strong and loud message to Twittler.

  2. *It’s about time. This is DRAINING THE SWAMP!*

  3. We need a whole lot more of this.

    • David you are right. The MORE starts with CLEANSING the Whitehouse in November. COVID and corruption in gov. has brought an OPPORTUNITY for Americans to MAKE AMERICA TRULY GREAT not just great again. A TSUNAMI OF VOTERS IS NEEDED AND A HUGE PROTEST BY ANYONE WHOSE VOTE IS NOT ACCEPTED. Good luck from Canada.

    • @D B WRONG. FACT: Not one person of the powerful ruling elite gives a darn about what you the dumbdowned heathen, cattle population thinks, feels, and wants. When will you learn that? When?

    • We will get a whole lot more of this once the women are in charge.

    • Yes starting with the mainstream media.

    • @Cool Beans You mad 😠? Aww, get over it, like Mick said.

  4. How much illegal money did they funnel to Trump ?

    • Not as much as BLM to the Dems

    • @Gene Robinson… “Remember Maria Butina…” I do. She only served 18 month in prison as a Russian Agent. And La Pierre could not have care less about the money’s source, just so long as he was able to funnel money into his Personal Luxurious life Style, a Yacht, jet skis, luxury mansion, hair stylist Flown In, etc etc. Maria Butina was just a Putin means to increase and spread Havoc and Chaos. VOTE McConnell/Trump OUT Of OFFICE On November 03, 2020. And DEMAND Full Public Campaign Funding For ALL American Elections.

      @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500
      Here is a little EDU. For you.
      President Obama’s economic policies did not fail, they were prevented from ocurring by a republiçian controlled Congress and a republiçian controlled senate ALL WHO SIGNED A PLEDGE to never support President Obama in anyway as long as he was in office. I encourage you to stay on subject, you don’t want to get downgraded to a kiddy-car

      @Ann Owens
      Thanks for your response .did you see/hear the New York attorney’s general press conference yesterday? She has layed the n r a to bear. 4 board members guilty of the same crimes as la Pierre, that they have been stealing millions from their members and others for decades,for their own personal use. Two of those board members have cut and ran.
      There was a time when the n r a was a good organizational that did good things, untill la Pierre came along and politicized them. La Pierre is and always has been a con and a grifter. He took the NRA down a dark deep hole. I truly feel for the members but they should have seen through the smoke screen.

  5. No one is above the law. Not the NRA nor Trump 👍

    Donald John Trump’s lifelong criminal career is about to catch up with him.

  7. Elainel Blais | August 6, 2020 at 12:50 PM | Reply

    Of course they should be dissolved. The voices of the thousands of dead ,especially the dead children, cry out for justice from beyond the grave. Whatever it takes to get rid of them.

    • so you think if there were no guns, murder would stop?

    • Paul Wilson It wouldn’t. The statistic would just shift to other things like stabbings, bludgeoning, and hit n runs. Gun violence is only symptomatic of a larger problem in the US that for some reason people are tunnel visioned on, and because of that so are politicians.

      My thoughts and prayers go out to the NRA, I would help them but it’s too soon…

      Elained Blais. All the Blacks, and Black Children are killed by Blacks in Chicago & in New York governed by Black mayors. No Children are killed in Republican governed States.

    • @Mark bodman lmao they dont have voices they cant even feel.

  8. Antenna Wilde | August 6, 2020 at 12:51 PM | Reply

    NRA advocates are complaining on Twitter. Why? Are they ok with NRA execs fleecing tens of millions of dollars from them for decades? This has nothing to do with the Second Amendment, it’s systematic fraud.

    • FACTS… Facts Always Confuse TRump Supporters…. Birds of a feather flock together

    • Gun Control Is Racism | August 6, 2020 at 6:52 PM | Reply

      This is 100% an attack on Gun Owners and the 2nd Amendment. These rabid anti-Americans have drooled to disarm the populace. National Socialists always behave the same. This is about power and control over decent people.

    • @Frank Miro yes, a lot of those people can’t own guns – but yet they do. I think there might be something a whole lot bigger going on, I hope I’m wrong. But there’s a lot of really bad people across the country right now locked and loaded and ready for a civil war. The FBI can’t arrest them fast enough.

    • @PKay Gray
      There are those who are ready to self defend against those so called ‘people’ as well.

      @Altair IV I appreciate your comment and will share the information you compiled. Thank You.

    • @Brother Sanguinary probably…but they are nuts anyway, so it doesnt make much different…problem is:`…they have guns….but so have i….but i dont dream of using them on people like they do

    • The original mission of the NRA was gun safety. Why are they not offering gun safety classes in cities like Chicago or New York? Seems they could use some help.

    • @The Blade their goal now is to have lunatics in full combat gear and AR-15 standing on the streets and look stupid….

    • Alex Hamilton | August 6, 2020 at 2:48 PM | Reply

      how exactly does this effect Trump?

  10. The NRA took in at least $30 million from Russian interests during the 2016 election.

    • I remember during that time the NRA went hard right looney tunes with their ads. The ads were filled with vitriol and demonization of the left; they had nothing to do with guns or any politicians or rules or laws, they were just wall to wall screeching and whining.

    • Rocket Power | August 6, 2020 at 1:32 PM | Reply

      50 million actually.

    • timber_beast Nooooo…. It was $80 million. The numbers are documented.

  11. Who can forget Maria Butina and all the old republicans who fell for her. LOL!!!

  12. NRA: Not Really Americans. The National Russian Association?

  13. But Russia Intelligence just spent millions to buy them. Is Putin owed a refund?

  14. Clearly this AG is not an anti-Yosemite 😂😂😂

  15. donald peters | August 6, 2020 at 12:58 PM | Reply

    Any organization that spends millions to ensure that the documented mentally ill, be able to purchase semi-automatic weapons, needs to be “dissolved”

    • Bo bbie Zaborsky | August 6, 2020 at 1:35 PM | Reply

      I agree…they have NOTHING to do with the 2nd amendment! I used to own a gun but when I was diagnosed with bi-polar I gave up my right because when your in a manic episode your reality is altered.

      Bo bbie Zaborsky. Good on you ! I hope you’re doing well.

    • Cassie Spencer | August 6, 2020 at 8:14 PM | Reply

      You say that as if it’s OK for them to purchase non semi-auto firearms such as bolt action rifles and revolvers for example, when in fact they can’t lawfully purchase ANY firearms from a licensed dealer where they (the buyer) must complete Form 4473 which the dealer then submits to the NICS system who subsequently informs them they can “proceed” or not with the transfer (from their inventory to the buyer) In other words, you have no idea what you’re talking about.

    • @Cassie Spencer yea, I wonder how many guns Kanye West has??
      Yikes. 😲

    • donald peters | August 7, 2020 at 5:29 AM | Reply

      @Cassie Spencer bullsh$t, study a bit more.

  16. I believe no one is above the law. If you commit a crime, President, corporation, or citizen, all should immediately be held responsible. NRA included.

  17. Steve Blaine | August 6, 2020 at 1:01 PM | Reply

    About freakin’ time. NRA has been corrupt for a long time.

    • Gun Control Is Racism | August 7, 2020 at 7:24 AM | Reply

      Another Democrat calls for the demise of the United States of America. Of course. The party line.

    • Francis Godinho | August 7, 2020 at 10:39 AM | Reply

      Steve Blaine. NRA has been corrupt for a long time —if so you knew about it, why you did not arrest them long time ago???? Were you getting paid under the table with a fat roll of dollars, like all democrats do to become millionaires. Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and Obama, who owns 2 homes costing millions

    • Gun Control Is Racism another Republican projecting and making claims without fact or proof. Typical Republican strat.

    • Francis Godinho your a misinformed fool, FRANCIS!
      Every time one of you trumpets opens your mouth it’s like when your guys on TV you put on a blindfold and put in ear plugs.
      Have you ever heard a lie you didn’t believe?

    • Francis Godinho | August 7, 2020 at 7:18 PM | Reply

      @ABOM 6669 Are you real or a robot made in China from scrap metal. Do you have balls, pee or poop or fart. There is a saying the Islamic Koran. Never argue with a dumb ignorant fool. Just leave his alone to turn into rust.

  18. Todd Jenkins | August 6, 2020 at 1:10 PM | Reply

    The NRA is among the largest “dark money” organizations, reporting the greatest amount of campaign spending without revealing the source of the funds — over $35 million in the 2016 election cycle alone. Still, this amount was just a fraction of the over $175 million in reported campaign-related spending that came from unknown sources.

  19. Too many bad things come out of this “charitable” organization

    Once I heard the NRA was in bed with Russians I canceled my membership.
