The National Rifle Association has responded to the lawsuit filed against it by New York Attorney General Leticia James by filing a countersuit alleging political bias.

[READ MORE: Past NRA President Responds to New York’s NRA Suit]

According to Fox News:

The NRA’s lawsuit was filed in the federal court of New York and alleges Attorney General Letitia James “made the political prosecution of the NRA a central campaign theme” when she was running for the AG’s office in 2018, and has not treated the association fairly since.

“Despite hopes that playing by the rules would procure a just outcome, the NRA has not been treated fairly by James’s office,” the 19-page suit states. “The New York Democratic Party political machine seeks to harass, defund, and dismantle the NRA because of what it believes and what it says.”

The defamation allegations stem from James’ public descriptions of the NRA as a “criminal enterprise” and “a terrorist organization.”

“James boasted that she would strike foul blows against the NRA and pound the NRA into submission. She vowed that she would use the NYAG’s investigative and enforcement powers for the precise purpose of stanching political speech (‘deadly propaganda),” the lawsuit states. “She has begun to deliver on her campaign promises to retaliate against the NRA for constitutionally protected speech on issues that James opposes. As NYAG, James has regrettably succumbed to ‘individual passions, and individual malevolence.’”

President Trump also slammed the suit and called on the NRA to move:

President Trump also slammed James’ suit against the group, calling it “a very terrible thing.”

“I think the NRA should move to Texas and lead a very good and beautiful life. And I’ve told them that for a long time. I think they should move to Texas – Texas would be a great state or to another state of their choosing – but I would say that Texas would be a great place and an appropriate place for the NRA.”

James tweeted:

James claimed that the losses to the NRA caused by the fraud were $64 million.

Attorney General Letitia James is a frigging idiot. New York has turned out to be the East Coast California. The voters in these two states have sent more morons to Congress than all the rest of the country put together.

Wow, what a mistake this woman is making. You don’t mess with the NRA. They will fight her all the way and rightly so. We have a right to carry arms – there will be a civil war if that goes through, believe me. That is what they did in Germany right off the bat. They took all the guns from their people. And you saw what happened to those people. Just step one in becoming a gest*po state.

Between the State Government and DeBlasio in NYC, the state is going belly up.

She should be pressing charges against Cuomo and DeBlasio for murder and domestic terrorism!

Right. Move anywhere where the state is conservative and has people who have patriotism. I don’t know why the NRA hasn’t moved long ago. Does this liberal AG think she can have a case about how the d NRA spends it money? It has nothing to do with government. This case should be thrown out asap. But being in NY I won’t hold my breath. Gun owners, if you aren’t an NRA member, now is the time to join.

This ag can try. Too many people are now seeing that the demonrats are trying every dirty trick in the book to chip away our constitutional rights. But, that will never happen. There are over 200 million registered gun owner recorded on record, but people have had guns as long as this country was created. So, that will tell you more than 200 million people own weapons. Not just guns either. This women should reconsider her vioation to the constitution of people’s rights, because she might get dead because of her intrusion on people’s rights. Never a good idea to mess with our constitution, it already states the right to bare arms. For this exact reason. GOVERMENT TYRANNY!!!!!!👎👎👎👎👎🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

This is not a charity, it is a tax exempt educational organization and she cannot dissolve it since it was approved by the IRS. She had no issue with the NY totally corrupt and piggy bank Clinton Foundation charity. It included a multi million dollar penthouse exclusively for the Clintons as well as hundreds of millions for private travel. All you need to know about her.

they’ve killed themselves as credibility goes, the NRA filed countersuit on this sad excuse for a human. Democrats are traitors. They’re being arrested every day it seems. The house of cards is falling. And rightly so. Bye NY unless you stand up to these communist abusers.

Demetri, I share your disfavor of the NY AG, but think your assessment of her personal life is a really low blow. Be better than that, save your misogyny and racism for somebody that really deserves it. (Like Hillary or Angela Davis). Be nice, and fight clean.

You know something. IF New York still exists in a year or more under the Democrats. I fear it will become nothing but the headquarters for the world’s crime cartels under Cuomo and DeBlasio. Of the headquarters for a Socialist, Marxist, and Communist regime. But if it can last through another election. I believe that New York will do some serious self questioning and may change their minds about the direction the Democrats are taking it.

Before you move the NRA out of NY make sure your counter-suit includes cuomo and deblasio. They are as much to blame for this moron AG and her gun-grabbing BS. You might better move with NY’s money if they are so ignorant as to let this idiot continue her disasterous agenda. I have been living in NY for personal reasons but it is all settled now so I will be out of here before winter sets in. I am tired of the TOTAL incompetence,taxes and corruption that is running rampant in this state. And with elected officials like cuomo,deblasio, schumer,nadler,gillibrand and many more — it won’t get any better in the near future.

I know that this may sound childish to many but I have to ask: If our US Constitution is the “Law of the Land” then if citizens rights are stated in black and white on this document then what justifies politicians to abuse their power and take these rights away from the citizens. “Congress shall make no law….” seems pretty clear to me. If the 2nd Amendment states people have the right to bear arms then this is also clear. There is no mention what these arms should be. We hear the term “Assault Weapon” but what defines a “Assault Weapon”? Any weapon could be defined as a “Assault Weapon” if used to assault another human being. A knife, a Fork, a spoon, a rake? I mentioned rake because I had to fight off a home invasion with a rake. I used this rake to fight off a person with a knife. This person assaulted me with a knife. If asked how to fix all this corruption of my US Constitution, I would have to say erase all these laws that have corrupted my US Constitution and start over by defining the reason those who drafted this constitution put these rights into our constitution and then justify and make clear to the citizens why a law must apply equally throughout our government. No law should be selective, but they must be inclusive. For and by the people does not mean for a by the politicians. Political Correctness is a sham when it comes to Rule of Law. No matter how many times you read the words of our US Constitution, you can not find Political Correctness stated within this document. If complying with our US Constitution means being Political Correct then in theory I would say maybe, but this is not clearly stated to be correct. The word “Political” does not make it US Constitutional Correct. Politics may be defined as the science and art of government, but it is does not have anything to do with Rule of Law with our US Government. Politics is a process, but not a right when it comes the US Citizens’s rights. Voting can be defined as a right because it gives every US Citizen a voice in their government. This person who votes is not required to be political. Politicians may think so, but they would be wrong. To vote requires Free Will to choose who or what to vote for. If you were to ask me, I think politicians have corrupted our Rule of Law to gain a political gain over the US Citizens to the point no US Citizens is truly free. This is Political Correctness in all it’s glory. Political Correctness has become religion to the Liberal Left and it’s dogma is to control the masses. The only way to truly control the masses is to vote for SOCIALISM. What made this possible? Politicians making laws in our US Congress the US Constitution never gave them the power to create. Who are the true TRAITORS of these United States? The Socialists who want to take away our freedoms. Hilary Clinton claimed she was a Progressive, but what does this really mean? It means being Political Correct, thus to be Political Correct the government must first control the masses and demand they be progressive and punish those who truly cherish their freedom to choose. Sounds like SOCIALISM to me.
