If Donald Trump listened to that statement from the New York AG (assuming he's capable of understanding any of it) he certainly soiled his adult diaper. The Trump Organization and Trump, personally, are going to get the same level of scrutiny in New York.

Seeking to dissolve the NRA is the most aggressive sanction James could have sought against the not-for-profit organization, which James has jurisdiction over because it is registered in New York.

It's a regulatory sanction of an organization she has direct jurisdiction over. Hence no need to file any criminal charges.

"No one would need to if the lefties stopped trying to take away our 2nd Amendment rights."

No liberal I have ever met actually wanted to take away 2nd Amendment rights but we sometimes do want the entire 2nd Amendment to be read and understood.

"A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

So, when you liars want to handle the "well-regulated militia" part of the amendment let me know. The second amendment does not say that all a******s should be allowed to own military style weapons. You can pretend it does but then I have the Constitution to prove it doesn't. Learn to read y'all.

Now, there are nefarious reasons that we have the 2nd Amendment but that is a different argument. If you want to debate those nefarious reasons I will be happy to do so but realize they are based on defending armed slave patrols looking for runaway slaves. That's a fact Jack. You want to defend that then be my guest.

Actually the Second Amendment says we can't stop that from happening.

Ask JPW or Et_Al if you don't believe me.

The Second Amendment says we can't stop Muslim fanatics from arming up either, which is exactly how we got the husband and wife murder team in San Bernardino. Or just homegrown American fanatics, which is how we got the newspaper shooting in Annapolis.

And then of course, the prevalence of guns means it's reasonable for a black person to get shot when police think a black person is reaching for a gun. The police don't even have to see a gun, they just have to see a black person's hand reaching into an area where a gun might be concealed.

Pretension wrapped in ignorance. The Second Amendment is a codification of a common law right dating to the 15th or 16th century England. History of the Second Amendment You have not learned anything from my linking that law review the last dozen or so times but, who knows, hope springs eternal.

Also, regulated does not mean what you think it does in that sentence. When the sentence was written it meant "adjust by rule, control," "to control by rule, direct." https://www.etymonline.com/word/regulate see also https://johnsonsdictionaryonline.com/regulate/ The militia is regulated. Title 10 of the United State Code regulates the Armed Forces. Chapter 12 of that code regulates the militia. https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/10/246

Granted, in times past the regulations were more extensive, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Militia_Acts_of_1792, but not so today.

In any event, the militia clause is a preamble, an introduction, that neither expands nor limits the right of people to keep and bear arms.

You are as unfamiliar with the National Firearms Act as you are the Second Amendment and the small arms it sanctions.

It may be objected that if weapons that are most useful in military service"M-16 rifles and the like"may be banned, then the Second Amendment right is completely detached from the prefatory clause. But as we have said, the conception of the militia at the time of the Second Amendment 's ratification was the body of all citizens capable of military service, who would bring the sorts of lawful weapons that they possessed at home to militia duty. It may well be true today that a militia, to be as effective as militias in the 18th century, would require sophisticated arms that are highly unusual in society at large. Indeed, it may be true that no amount of small arms could be useful against modern-day bombers and tanks. But the fact that modern developments have limited the degree of fit between the prefatory clause and the protected right cannot change our interpretation of the right.

How is "sanctioning" only certain "small" arms not infringement, based on the wording itself? Shouldn't it be changed to "SHALL be infringed, subject to inventions new or unforeseen"...?

As it stands, it's bullshirt. OF COURSE the bearing of (certain) arms is infringed. The section you posted is nothing but a legal attempt at tap dancing.

Yes, the bearing of arms has been "infringed." It has always been that way. You are, again, unfamiliar with how that is and how it came about. The amendment, and its common law predecessor, has always been about the types of weapons commonly possessed at home, small arms. It's never been about "dangerous and unusual" (hope I remembered the term of art correctly) weapons, military weapons.

Is there anything that considers what sort of what weapons are "commonly possessed at home" as time evolves? Small arms are considerably more advanced today than they were back in the day of the Brown Bess and it's ilk... would a Ruger Mini-14 not be considered "dangerous and unusual" in 1780?

I could agree with that. Not sure how strongly, though, since the wording was for a different time and place. It was inevitable that it would hit this point.

In a similar vein I see no reason to rewrite the first amendment since the cutting edge technology of the day was the printing press and in person gatherings.

If individuals within the NRA have done something illegal prosecute them. This act is what Democrats have been doing for the past couple of decades - attempt to criminalize political and policy differences.

"...attempt to criminalize political and policy differences."

So are you pretending using non-profit donations for personal enrichment is an okay thing? And that if the Clinton Foundation were found doing the same, you'd be against any action???

Tell us another, two-face.

I find it impossible to believe the right to bear arms is really being infringed when said right isn't granted to people who intend to commit crimes with guns, such as the San Bernardino shooters.

There's a saying that my right to swing my fist ends at your nose.

This kind of thinking is turned on its head when it comes to how stupidly we construe the Second Amendment.

The right to bear arms shall not be infringed. Even when the intent of the bearer is illegal, they still have the right.

The GOP is a death cult.

#91 What I'm saying is that if individuals within the NRA are guilty of a crime you charge those individuals.

This lawsuit is attempting to disband an entire organization in what is clearly a case of prosecutorial abuse for political ends.

"This lawsuit is attempting to disband an entire organization in what is clearly a case of prosecutorial abuse for political ends."

Oh lookie here. ZETALEPH is a walking billboard for Wayne LaPierre.

The only thing clear about this lawsuit is the need to cut off the heads of the snakes ~~ all of them.

The NRA has lost the privilege of being called a non-profit. Don't blame the judge. Blame LaPierre and his enablers.

Zeta's clueless about this laswuit or he'd be for it. Unless he just loves a 'charity' spending many, many 10's of millions on private yacht trips and private air passage for families of those in power in the NRA, all being supported by all those that run the NRA.

The entire organization is corrupt, violated their charter repeatedly, and as being incorporated in NY, fall directly under the laws of and the judgments of NY and the attorney general.

There isn't anything controverisal about this except why has it gone on so long.

The suit alleges that top NRA executives misused charitable funds for personal gain

Bunker Bitch and his vile spawn did the same thing with cancer charities.

Why should anyone be disciplined for telling the truth?

I'm glad this anti-gun/hate the NRA discussion is taking place just before the election.

I'm glad too!

This is a great first step.

Now let's disband Trumpy and Trumpism.

That Zetal character sure loves him some corruption don't he? He must. He defends it like some people defend their religion.

Is corruption your religion Zetal?

Liberals may not be coming to take your guns away, but we support taking the lying and traitorous right wing Republican NRA out of the picture.

So you're privy to documents and such that back the AG's position?

I'd imagine it's similar to Trump's "charity" being disbanded for misuse of funds. Or was that political too?

Because you want everybody to know that the GOP and it's supporters are corrupt to the core?

Doesn't say good things about you, does it?

It's both about politics and the law.

Like banning TikTok. It's about politics and security.

And it's not a coincidence that both are happening just 88 days before the elections.
