U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Sunday called on the Justice Department to investigate the National Rifle Association for bankruptcy fraud, saying the financially stable gun-rights group abused the system when it sought bankruptcy protection in the wake of a New York lawsuit seeking to put it out of business.

A judge rejected the NRA’s bankruptcy case in May, ruling the nonprofit organization had not acted in good faith. NRA leaders made clear that the organization was “in its strongest financial condition in years” and was seeking bankruptcy protection so it could changes its state of incorporation from New York to gun-friendly Texas.

Schumer, a New York Democrat, said the NRA’s continued heavy spending on advertising criticizing proposed gun control measures and the nomination of gun control lobbyist David Chipman to run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives are further evidence that its bankruptcy filing was inspired by legal, not financial, concerns.

“They recently told the judicial branch of government that they are bankrupt after the lawsuit by Tish James, and at the same time they’re saying they’re bankrupt, they’re spending millions of dollars on ads to stop universal background checks,” Schumer said, referencing New York Attorney General Letitia James. “That demands an investigation by the Justice Department.”

  1. So I suppose that if GM seeks protection from it’s creditors in the bankruptcy courts it must immediately stop making and selling cars then. Just lay off every employee and shut down. Otherwise it’s fraud.

  2. Any self-respecting gun owner knows the NRA needs to just hurry up and get the hell out of the way. They’re responsible for more gun control than the Brady bunch. Time to move the NRA to the children’s table. Let the adults at FPC/GOA handle this.

    • No, the bozos at FPC/GOA/SAF are essentially same as NRA. I’m a lifer at 3 0f 4 of those organizations, but the 2A is BIG BUSINESS for all sides of the 2A issue. The only way this will ever be settled is if We The Little Peeps implement the 2A for what our Founding Fathers gave it to us. Play by the enemies’ rules; lose by the enemies’ rules. Should be playing by our rules of the land…Constitution, Bill of Rights…..”…shall not be infringed.”

  3. Elected democrats are not interested in learning how business and government regulations work. They are only interested in exploiting them.

        • Yep ole Chuckie is as big or maybe a bigger hypocrite than his fellow democrats. He wants armed guards to protect himself but wants all other Americans to live in fear.

        • “He wants armed guards to protect himself but wants all other Americans to live in fear”

          that doesn’t make him a hypocrite. that is in fact his goal – for us to live in fear of people like him.

          that’s why bernie sanders honeymooned in the soviet union. those sorts of regimes are their millennium, their heaven – them owning everything and us living in terror of them. isaiah 49:23 “the kings of the earth will bow with their faces to the ground and lick the dust of your feet”

  4. in other news kts dre, shot 64 times upon his release from cook county jail, has changed his moniker from “kill to survive” to “keeps taking shots.”

    • And only 2 others were nicked. Where did they find some folks who could shoot? You’d normally expect dozens of bystanders dead before 64 hits were scored on the actual target! The boyz should get a bonus! Of course, he was still in the street in front of the Cook County jail, we might be suspicious that cops shot him, but they said no.

      • well… they might have left a thousand shells. the ejection port that spit him out is only populated heavily during visiting hours. not much foot traffic there at 20:00.

  5. This pig, Schumer, is all for using the power of the federal government to suppress political opponents.

    Say what you will about the NRA and it’s recent troubles, everyone should be up in arms (literally) over the increasingly draconian actions being taken by this out of control set of political hacks who imagine us THEIR servants.

  6. The larger the swamp the more Fascist it naturally becomes. Put the Democrats in charge and that makes the problem exponentially worse, while many Republicans are bad Schumer and company would chain us like slaves to feed the monster!

  7. I find it strange while jews are getting attacked in New York on the street, just because they are jews of course, He had NOTHING to say about that nor did he scream for an investigation !! He knows he has the jewish vote regardless of what happens to them.

  8. This, over here is the NRA.

    This other thing, over there, is the NRA-ILA.

    That they are separate entities is a result of democrats like Chuckle trying to squelch political speech by anyone that wasn’t a historical supporter of democrats (socialism), like labor unions.

    So, thanks Chuckle.

  9. “You will not escape investigation!” said Senior Reichsregierung Member Schumer. “You are guilty of something, and the Volksgerichtshof will find out what it is.”

      • I was thinking about doing him up as a communist… would it be more accurate? I dunno… but the Soviet terminology doesn’t lend itself quite as well.

  10. Schumer represents the old guard. He is the very definition of what holds black people down when it comes to white politicians. This is part of the swamp and part of what needs to go. The only way to deal with it is to vote republican. Even if you don’t like republicans. Schumer is part of the problem…NOT the solution.

    • “Schumer represents the old guard”

      the 3000 year old guard.

      not to worry, the new guard is exactly the same. in every generation.

    • “He is the very definition of what holds black people down when it comes to white politicians.”

      They hold them back through fear. There’s a reason black immigrants earn more than black Americans. Democrat propaganda has convinced many black Americans that they can never achieve the same as white people, and the only way to rectify the problem is to keep electing Democrats. What sort of sick white man would tell a room full of black people that Republicans are “gonna put y’all back in chains!” Answer: one that understood that fear equals power.

  11. Schumer also probably wouldn’t want anybody mentioning how he’s a child molesting pervert and there’s photographic evidence of it all over the internet.

  12. how ’bout an investigation on those pushing gun control? who is funding them? who is publishing them? who is supporting them? and, who exactly are these people?

    • Soros is primary funding agent for gun control groups. He saw first hand how well gun control worked in Nazi Germany, when they were rounding up Jews for the death camps. Bloomberg is another funding agent. Then you have the full list of commiepinkofags like Ted Turner and Patty Hearst – it just goes on and on.

      • “He saw first hand how well gun control worked in Nazi Germany”

        iiuc he was in hungary …

        ‘when they were rounding up Jews for the death camps”

        … where he was helping round them up.

  13. Political speech is protected speech unless the Dems don’t like your political speech. In that case, you need lots of money to make the speech, and you’ll be investigated for money laundering.

  14. Absolutely the DoJ should investigate the senior leadership of the NRA. Hound Wayne LaPayMe! right into a nice cozy Federal prison for stealing from the membership.

    Meanwhile, back in the real world, Schumer has completely missed the fact that the NRA is substantially already replaced in this thing. The Firearms Policy Coalition, the Second Amendment Foundation, Gun Owners of America and other, smaller pro-SA outfits are leading the political and court fights.

    Leading and winning that is!

    So hell yes, sic the DoJ on Wayne. He’s earned it. Once he and his corrupt minions are dragged out kicking and screaming and lying all the way, the NRA can regain its health.

  15. The only FRAUD here is Chuckie and his leftist/dem/commucrat fellow-travelers in the media and politics. “We’re not coming for your guns”- like hell they arent, they have a decades-long history of coming for our guns and making FRAUDULENT statements of their intentions. The NRA, in spite of it’s warts and failures, has been the biggest defender of our gun rights. There are other similar organisations, but the NRA is the largest and has been in the fight the longest.

    • What exactly have they done (specifically) to protect gun rights in the last year/year and a half while we have seen such high gun sales?

  16. DemoCommiecrats really want Chipdickhead confirmed. Because a Demented Circus Monkey occupying the Oval Office thinks he’s imminently qualified. If confirmed, he won’t serve out the term. He’ll be feeding the fish.

  17. Regarding investigations of one thing or another by the FBI, how about investigation of the supporters of the Chipman nomination, and by the way, let’s have a really close look at/into the supporters of anti constitutional proposals, Gun Control.

  18. Just in case you had some doubt before this, it is absolute, unrefuted proof that the Democrats have weaponized the DOJ against all parties who oppose them.

    • Not just the DOJ, the federal government. The IRS went after conservative groups. The intelligence community went after a sitting president.

  19. They know the NRA isn’t what’s standing in their way of taking out the 2A. They despise the NRA because they became a large fundraiser for Republicans.

  20. Chuck Shumer is a NAZI. He needs to be removed from his office, he’s not fit to serve nor be an American.

  21. Country Boy. Amen. Can’t figure why so many American Jews supports lib/dem/fascist politicians, seems like they have forgotten the lessons of history..

  22. Thousands of Fed taxpayer funded bus and trains running around NY (and DC) but not ONE of them can run over this useless mouthbreathing moron?

  23. QUESTION: If SchoeHorn wants the NRA investigated for filing for protection under the bankruptsy laws, WHY didn’t he demand investigation of the Boy Scouts?
    …. And what about all those banks and mega-businesses that filed over the past 50 years?
