NRA moving to Texas

Post by noname » Fri Jan 15, 2021 10:55 pm

My wife knew I was a member of the NRA and was giving me grief about them filing for bankruptcy. Good natured chiding as she has a concealed carry permit. We found out they were moving their home office from New York to Texas. They will still be around. We did not find out why. I assume taxes but they should be a non-profit and exempt from taxes. Can never tell about New York though.

The NRA today announced it will reorganize the Association as a Texas nonprofit to abandon the corrupt political and regulatory environment in New York. This plan will enable long-term, sustainable growth – and ensure the NRA’s continued success as the nation’s leading advocate for constitutional freedom.

To facilitate the reorganization, the NRA and one of its subsidiaries filed voluntary chapter 11 petitions in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division. Chapter 11 proceedings are often utilized by businesses, nonprofits and organizations of all kinds to streamline legal and financial affairs.

Under the plan, the NRA is “dumping New York.”

Subject to court approval, the NRA’s strategic plan involves reincorporating the Association to the State of Texas – home to more than 400,000 NRA members and site of the 2021 NRA Annual Meeting being held in Houston.

The NRA is pursuing reincorporating in a state that values the contributions of the NRA, celebrates our law-abiding members, and joins us as a partner in upholding constitutional freedom. This is a transformational moment in the history of the NRA.

We firmly believe this strategic plan represents a pathway to opportunity, growth and progress.

The NRA will continue with the forward advancement of the enterprise – confronting anti-Second Amendment activities, promoting firearm safety and training, and advancing public programs across the United States. Our national platform is expanding.

The NRA is not insolvent. This move comes at a time when the NRA is in its strongest financial position in years.

We value you, or donors, supporters and members, and want to assure you that the NRA is revitalized, well-positioned, and steadfast in our fight to protect the Second Amendment.

Thank you for your unwavering spirit and being part of the NRA’s future.

Until wayne is gone, they are dead to me. I say that as a lifetime member.
Yes, I am a Baptist, and yes I carry a gun. You might think I carry a gun because I don't trust God. Well you would be wrong. I have complete faith in my Lord. It is mankind I have no trust in

I have to agree, Wayne in the mix spoils the results. His indulgence in his own fortune at the expense of the membership reeks.
I am sure that also figured into the NRA wanting to come the Texas. Didn't they buy a mansion in the DFW area for him?

All the funds request from the NRA goes into the trash until Wayne is cast to the curb without a golden parachute.

Give him any kind of parachute he likes as long as the organization is the beneficiary on his life insurance, and they drop out him of a plane over the ocean.

I was also a NRA member and would be again, but I refuse to help finance LaPierre's multi million dollar life style. He needs to go.

Aye, the confluence of time and a big pile of money nearby seems like an irresistible temptation, doesn't it?

One wonders how many members Mr. LaPierre's thievery has driven away these last couple of years. And how many muttered "like hell's" when checking out on Midway's website, as the "NRA Roundup" tick box gets unchecked.

I am not particularly in love with the NRA but do not know a suitable alternative that is nationwide.
