NRA, you'd be welcome in Texas

Texas flagA former leader of Texas' Republican Party agrees with President Trump when it comes to the National Rifle Association as it faces a legal attack from the left.

Letitia James, New York's far-left Democrat attorney general, wants to dissolve the NRA and has filed a lawsuit against the Second Amendment advocacy organization alleging that high-ranking executives have diverted millions of dollars for lavish personal trips and other questionable expenditures. NRA President Carolyn Meadows calls it "a transparent attempt to score political points and attack the leading voice in opposition to the leftist agenda."

Though it is headquartered in Virginia, the NRA was chartered as a non-profit in New York in 1871 and continues to be incorporated in the state. President Trump has suggested that the NRA relocate to Texas.

"If the NRA, the National Rifle Association, wants to come to Texas, we would embrace them with open arms," responds Cathie Adams, a former chairman of the Republican Party of Texas.

And she says the NRA can take care of its own business.

"I believe that they should be held accountable to their shareholders and others, and they should be transparent in their dealings; there's no question about that," Adams tells OneNewsNow. "But an attack on the NRA by New York is absolutely an attack on the Second Amendment."

She goes on to point out that this lawsuit will force the NRA to spend money on its defense rather than on supporting the president.

"They will do anything they can to destroy our current president. They do not want organizations like the NRA being able to fund our president," Adams concludes.
