NRA wants to re-incorporate in Texas

NRA announced their intention to dissolve the current New York incorporation and re-incorporate in Texas. As part of this move they are filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

“… Today, the NRA announced a restructuring plan that positions us for the long-term … The plan can be summed up quite simply: We are DUMPING New York, and we are pursuing plans to reincorporate the NRA in Texas. To facilitate the strategic plan and restructuring, the NRA and one of its subsidiaries have filed voluntary chapter 11 petitions … chapter 11 proceedings are often utilized by businesses, nonprofits and organizations of all kinds to streamline legal and financial affairs. Under the plan, the NRA will continue what we’ve always done … No major changes are expected to the NRA’s operations or workforce …”

I’m sure there is more to the bankruptcy filing than just this and as time goes on it will become apparent.

Tish James offered her response:

“The NRA’s claimed financial status has finally met its moral status: bankrupt. While we review this filing, we will not allow the NRA to use this or any other tactic to evade accountability and my office’s oversight.”

IR 1001-2021

County Legislator Rudy Sunderman introduced IR 1001-2021, Conducting a study to determine the feasibility of an environmental hazard mitigation plan for lead waste after County-owned recreational shooting ranges close. The bill resides in the Environment, Parks & Agriculture Committee.

On an unrelated note, Sunderman has some interesting ongoing legal problems:

“… Sunderman was indicted on perjury charges in July 2019 for allegedly telling the Suffolk County Board of Ethics falsely that he no longer worked for the Centereach Fire District. Suffolk County legislators are not permitted to hold two paying public jobs at once. Sunderman, who joined the legislature in 2018, created a shell company in his wife’s name so he could continue receiving income from the fire district, prosecutors said … Sunderman’s attorney, Ray Perini, said Saturday that a misdemeanor charge for getting two public paychecks was dismissed because Sunderman did not get a paycheck directly from the fire district … Perini said he has filed a motion to dismiss all charges against Sunderman, which include felony perjury charges. Perini said Sunderman got an ethics lawyer opinion before creating the corporation that said it would not violate the law and testified before the ethics board that he was “making less money” while doing the same work …”

Rocah to push “red flag”

Mimi Rocah was sworn-in as Westchester D.A. this afternoon and she’s made it clear pushing for “red flag” gun control implementation is high on her agenda:

“… She also said she’d target rising gun violence in the county by taking steps including a mandatory red-flag notification for domestic violence victims to tell them they can have guns removed from their partners’ possession. “We must get guns off the street and out of the hands of violent offenders,” Rocah said. “And, while there are no simple answers, there is more we can do.” …”

Believe it.  She’s going to use the D.A.’s office as a bully pulpit to push for whatever nutty schemes Moms come up with just like Jeanine Pirro did when she held the office.
