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

Published

on

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.
