Federal judge shuts down NRA’s escape hatch

When the NRA first filed for bankruptcy and said it was reestablishing itself in Texas, Palmer Report pointed out that it would obviously not be allowed to do so under the law. Sure enough, today a judge blocked the NRA from moving. They were never just going to magically move to Texas.

The NRA is a registered nonprofit in New York State, and it’s currently under investigation by the state. That meant any attempt at dissolving in the state, or packing up and leaving the state, was automatically going to be rejected. There’s no suspense about this kind of thing.

We recently saw this with the Trump Foundation, which tried to dissolve while under New York State investigation, but was legally blocked from doing so. All you have to do is look at precedent, and ignore the people yelling “oh no they’re magically going to get away with it!”
