    So the troubles of the NRA began when they were caught selling an illegal product in New York. Or maybe it was when pressure started mounting after the Parkland shooting. Their woes certainly weren't helped when they had to skip the line of succession and appoint Ollie North as leader because everyone else was compromised by a Russian spy.

    At any rate, now they claim they're broke and can no longer function as an advocacy group or a non-profit.

    Yeah, we need a lobby truly committed to gun rights. Not these controlled opposition assholes.

    Skimmed it. Sounds like it was the tv stream and magazine that is in danger of shutdown?

    I mean the NRA has like 7 million members who pay dues. I don't imagine they are going anywhere.

    This seems like more Sensationalist reporting

    Maybe you should read instead of skimming. They're quoting the NRA. JFC.

    The only problem is that the NRA is making the claim, the press is just reporting it.

    It also said that the NRA can't hold rallies, due to insurance issues.

    The group itself never said we will cease to be. It will cease to function a step as it has been.

    It doesn't need any of that stuff. It can still exist as it can just take members dues and then pay checks to people and institutions. That will never ever stop. You don't need to be part of any "system" to do that.

    If you weren't so dang angry and insulting all the time, you'd maybe understand that.

    So make this headlines at all the liberal news sites.

    Get the word out ( even if it's not accurate).

    That should really hurt the NRA especially when all the gun owners in the US hear about the anti 2nd celebrating the NRA "going out".

    The left is always counting their chickens before they hatch.

    In the end, the NRA will be just fine. They have to defeat Cuomo in the courts, but the NRA can play a long game that can outlast any one politicians career.

    The media reports that the NRA is in dire financial straits every couple of years. These reports are more wishful thinking than a prediction of the future. The NRA always has major swings in the amount of cash on hand because they spend their liquid cash on winning elections. They always get more cash because they serve a very real and useful purpose to its members.

    If you're concerned you should do what I did, donate at least $100 to the National Rifle Association, or the NRA-ILA (National Rifle Association-Institute for Legislative Action) or the NRA-PVF (National Rifle Association-Political Victory
    Fund).

    I'm sure it won't encourage anyone to go out and donate to the NRA... (sarcasm to be noted)

    Do you understand that the media is reporting the pleading statements that the NRA has put out? You didn't read a damn thing, did you?

    Dude, go reread all of that.

    David Hogg is quoted as saying that the. NRA is just fine and not going anywhere. He says they are doing this for sensationalism and donations.

    You got caught up in sensationalism, it's ok sherdog bro. It happens

    Gotta have that standing and damages before the court battle can begin. This is the NRA, the absolute masters of narrative framing.

    Don't try to spin this like I'm at fault here when you're the dumb shi-- <delete delete> literate marvel who first claimed it was media sensationalism and, now that you've actually read something, are saying it's NRA sensationalism.

    Translation, "No, we're just liars, but I'm still going to pretend the "left" is wrong for reporting this."

    This is a good example of how you're shameless, lying trash. You act like it was bullshit reporting, yet immediately pivot to praising the NRA for lying, without retracting what you said about the reporting. Your mother sucks at being a mother.

    The NRA jumped the shark many moons ago. Now they are little more than a far right wing propaganda group in bed with Russian spies.

    The headlines are sensationalist and some wishful thinking on the part of the writers.

    The NRA is free to say whatever it likes. We still have a First Amendment.

    This is their perspective and why they believe they have standing in court. I fully support them in their legal battle.

    I'll be sure to remind you of this thread when the NRA eventually defeats Cuomo. Even if they have to wait for Cuomo to exit political power, the NRA is always willing to play a much longer game than any one politicians career.

    FYI, all of this whining and insults just makes you look like a sore loser. I understand that it can be upsetting when reality doesn't conform to your personal vision of the world, but you need to grow up, get over it, and learn how to come to terms with the reality that is your world. Until you do that, you will continue to emotionally lash out at others.
