    The New York Attorney General’s Office has filed a lawsuit to dissolve the National Rifle Association (NRA), the US gun advocacy organization that only offers up its “thoughts and prayers” to victims of deadly mass shootings.

    Case vs. Casings

    New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit Thursday seeking to dissolve the NRA, the largest and most influential pro-gun organization in the US, and alleging years of “illegal self-dealing that funded lavish lifestyle of NRA leaders.”  

    James’ office accused the NRA in a news release of “diversion of millions of dollars away from the charitable mission of the organization for personal use by senior leadership, awarding contracts to the financial gain of close associates and family and appearing to dole out lucrative, no-show contracts to former employees in order to buy their silence and continued loyalty.”  
    Prominent anti-gun advocates and organizations were quick to applaud the move, mocking the NRA’s infamous “thoughts and prayers” response to gun violence in America.
