The pandemic and historic unrest have had a curious result: gun purchases have skyrocketed.
And over 2 million Americans bought their first firearm. Many of those have been black and minority Americans.
For the first time, some Americans are discovering how important their Second Amendment rights are.
So, how have Democrats responded to this news? Well, they are trying to shut down the NRA:
New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Thursday that her office has filed a lawsuit against the National Rifle Association and its leadership, including Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, looking to dissolve the organization.
New York’s Letitia James (a Democrat) wants to dissolve the NRA, accusing its leadership of corruption.
It’s hard not to question the left’s motivation. Plenty of organizations have had corrupt leaders. Did the government step in and dissolve them?
If that were the case, why didn’t the government dissolved the Democratic Party decades ago?
Democrats are trying to shut down a major Second Amendment-supporting group. The NRA regularly fights to protect Americans’ right to bear arms.
The left does this, just as more black Americans are buying guns. Could there be a coincidence?
Democrats are, after all, trying to defund police departments—which would impact black neighborhoods more than any others.
With the NRA gone, Congress (and the states) would have an easier job of passing harsh gun control. Do the Democrats want black Americans (and everyone else) defenseless? At a time when anarchists are rioting in the streets?
Trump was asked about the developing lawsuit and he had this to say:

Should the NRA move to Texas, they would be out of reach of New York lawyers. Texas is known for its strong support of the Second Amendment. Perhaps the organization would find greener pastures there (and fewer lawsuits)?
You have to consider the terrible timing of this lawsuit. The election is less than 90 days away. Many Americans are staunch Second Amendment supporters. Over 2 million just bought their first gun.
Did Democrats really think this was a good time to try to eliminate the biggest firearm group in the country?
- New York Democrats are suing the NRA, trying to dissolve the organization.
- NY AG is accusing the group of corruption.
- This comes after a historic number of Americans bought firearms for the first time this year.
