President Trump Urges the NRA to Move to Texas, Org Ignores

Published

The National Rifle Association (NRA) recently declined a piece of advice that President Donald Trump gave them on Tuesday, July 3, 2019.

Trump encouraged the gun rights group to flee New York in favor of the more pro-gun state of Texas.

Trump tweeted that if the NRA is the victim of harassment by the A.G. of [New York], like what they are doing to our great NRA,” it will then be forced to “move quickly to Texas, where they are loved.”

The NRA, who donated a generous sum of $30 million to Trump’s campaign in 2016, did not react negatively to Trump’s advice.

In a written statement to Newsweek, NRA managing director of public affairs Andrew Arulanandam said “The NRA appreciates the ongoing support from President Trump.”

Arulanandam added “He’s a champion for our cause and the freedoms for which we stand.”

That being said, the NRA spokesman said that the NRA is staying put in New York despite the differences it has with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Arulanandam highlights how the NRA has a “long and proud history in New York—for almost 150 years,” and stressed that despite frequent calls for them to move their operations elsewhere, “our plan is to stay there.”

The NRA is currently being investigated by Letitia James, the New York State Attorney General, for potential financial violations.

In addition to that, the NRA is being attacked from the inside and outside, with questions about its spending practices and its recent move to shut down NRATV being at the forefront of national discussion.

A move to Texas makes sense. Texas is one of the most pro-gun and business-friendly states in the nation. However, a move to the Lone Star State is not so simple.

The Newsweek report notes this:

If the NRA wanted to relocate it would first have to file a certificate of dissolution with New York’s Department of State, and only after the attorney general’s office has given its stamp of approval.

James Fishman, a professor from Pace Law School explained to Newsweek that “Under New York law you have to get permission from the state’s attorney general to do that.”

He added, “That’s really to stop organizations that, say, are crooked from dissolving and running away to another state. The NRA is stuck.”

All in all, things aren’t looking so bright in NRA land.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
