The Texas attorney general offered up to the National Rifle Association (NRA) a big Lone Star State “howdy” days after the New York Attorney General (AG) sued to dissolve the Second Amendment defender, saying “we care about what the founders put in the Constitution.”
“I can tell you one thing in Texas that we care about, and I think we will always care about, is God and guns,” Ken Paxton said Sunday on “Fox & Friends Weekend.”
Paxton mentioned that the First Amendment protects the right of Free Speech and Freedom of Religion and that the Second Amendment secures the right to own guns.
“And in Texas, we care about what the founders put in the Constitution, and we love it,” Paxton said.
He said he would “absolutely” welcome the NRA to Texas because “they have done amazing work over the years defending the Second Amendment.”
Folks, don’t forget that without the Second Amendment, you would have no other rights in a very short time.
We reported that New York Attorney General Letitia James sued the NRA last Thursday, seeking to dissolve the organization while accusing top brass of ignoring non-profit rules to fund opulent lifestyles that included international travel, yachts and private jets among other things.
The suit also seeks to have the Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre removed from his position.
James is a radical leftist AG who goes after the NRA while the Democratic Party in her state has been violating New Yorker’s rights with illegal lockdowns and forcing businesses to close and other draconian measures without her ever giving them a second look.
Asked how the pro-gun group would benefit from a move to Texas, Paxton said Texas wouldn’t mess with them.
“I think it’s a little late now, but we certainly would invite them to come to Texas to avoid this in the future because if they’re in New York, it opens them up to investigation by the attorney general’s office in a way that I don’t think would happen in Texas, so I would encourage them to move as soon as they can,” he said.
The timing of this smacks of Democratic political partisanship as it comes just three months before the presidential election, with Paxton saying the suit “looks extremely political,”
Paxton also pointed out that the timing of the AG’s suit “looks extremely political,” coming months before the election.
“If you want to do this investigation, do it quietly,” he said. “If you’re going to announce something, announce it after the election, but what it looks like — and she [James] claims they’re a terrorist organization — this looks like a terrorist operation going against the NRA in trying to make it political as opposed to a legitimate investigation.”
The goofy New York AG is trying to shut down an organization that is ready to fight for the reelection of President Donald Trump. The lawsuit is attacking the NRA in such a way that James wants to bankrupt them so that they can’t buy ads or donate money to political campaigns.
The NRA is headquartered in the state of Virginia, however, they are chartered as a non-profit since 1871 in New York, where it remains incorporated to this day.
