A US prosecutor is battling with the organization that is a strong supporter of gun ownership for US citizens, the politically influential National Rifle Association (NRA).
The issue is financial mismanagement.
New York State Prosecutor Letitia James seeks to dissolve the NRA, the largest and most powerful gun lobby in the United States.
Leaders of the illustrious organization channelled millions of dollars for personal use and to keep former employees silent or loyal, James said.
NRA leaders paid family cash, private jets, and expensive meals with cash from the cash. In three years, $ 64 million was rushed through. The organization had a surplus but is now facing a shortage.
The prosecutor is from the Democratic party, the rival of President Trump’s Republicans. Observers anticipate a bitter fight.
Conservatives revere the NRA as a champion of the US constitutional right to keep and carry weapons. The opponents see the NRA as a symbol of rampant gun violence, causing countless casualties every year.
