New York Attorney General Letitia James has been desperately trying to destroy the National Rifle Association, but on Wednesday, the state Supreme Court knocked down James’ plans.

Per The Reload:

Justice Joel Cohen of the Supreme Court of the State of New York dismissed James’ attempt to dissolve the country’s largest gun-rights group on Wednesday. He said James’ accusations of corruption primarily involved private harm to NRA members and donors, and thus did not warrant such a sweeping penalty if proven.

“In short, the Complaint does not allege the type of public harm that is the legal linchpin for imposing the ‘corporate death penalty,’” Justice Cohen wrote in his opinion. “Moreover, dissolving the NRA could impinge, at least indirectly, on the free speech and assembly rights of its millions of members.”

The decision comes after the NRA filed several motions to dismiss Attorney General James’ corruption claims against the organization and various individual members of its executive leadership. While the judge allowed several of the claims to proceed, dismissal of the threat to dissolve the organization removes James’ most potent weapon against the group.

James has been trying to destroy the NRA since August of 2020 by claiming that the civil rights group had misspent its donations.

James attempted to warp state laws to claim she had the power to dissolve the NRA over her claims of funding fraud. But the court denied James’ attempt.

The ruling did not stop James from continuing her harassment lawsuit, of course. But it did prevent her from her un-American, fascist attempt to outright cancel the NRA.

So, mark this as a win for the NRA. But the war wages on.
