Here is a Newsmax interview with Alan Dershowitz, an anti-gunner Democrat, who thinks that New York going after NRA is legally wrong, to quote:

""I've never heard of a case where an attorney general's tried to dissolve a first amendment – and in this case First and Second Amendment protected political organization – that is a bridge too far constitutionally," Dershowitz told Thursday's "John Bachman Now."

Worth watching and may clear up some issues that people might have against the NRA.

He actually suggests that NRA stay in New York and litigate, if they do not and leave it would empower the left even more.

Parroting ja308's posts... NRA sues NY attorney general, says she wants to destroy her 'political enemy'

The National Rifle Association filed a countersuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James, saying she lacks authority to invoke state laws governing nonprofits in her zeal to destroy the gun rights group.

In a Tuesday night court filing, the NRA, which filed for bankruptcy last month and said it would switch its incorporation to Texas from New York, accused James of “weaponizing” her powers to pursue a “blatant and malicious retaliation campaign” against the group because she dislikes what it stands for...
While most of us agree that there is a latent anti-2nd Amendment sentiment underlying this case, simply declaring it so as 'the defense' for what has been shown isn't likely to hold much sway. LaPierre is still going to have to provide some sort of defense for the expenditures, even if they were legitimate. As I've maintained all along, there could be legitimate reasons for the travel, the suits, and the NRA could typically underwrite housing for interns. But, simply declaring this whole thing an "attack on your 2nd Amendment rights" isn't a rationale which explains the legitimacy of the expenditures.

It could be helpful to establish a maliciousness or 'inappropriateness' to James' lawsuit; but, at some point, even if it's just to members, some sort of explanation is going to have to be forthcoming. People will continue to believe what they believe and those who are predisposed to seeing the NRA as mismanaged are going to use it as 'evidence' of such. Unfortunately, the 'silence,' other than 'we support Wayne,' may keep the lawyers happy, but it will keep the membership restive.

As I said, there's the legal battle and the PR battle and an organization such as the NRA has to be able to conduct and win both simultaneously. If it can't, then it might be time for new 'leadership.'
