NAT’L GUN RIGHTS – Will the NRA be Dissolved, and Who Would Replace Them? (VIDEO)

NEWSWEEK.COM August 12, 2020 – Pro-gun groups and gun law advocates alike fielded a media storm last week when New York Attorney General Letitia James announced her office was seeking to dissolve the National Rifle Association.

As James made the move to threaten the nation’s largest pro-gun organization, many began questioning how successful she would be in disbanding a group as powerful as the NRA, and in turn, what the fallout for gun owners would look like.

But rival groups advocating for fewer gun restrictions don’t think James has a chance. “I do not believe that any court would disband the NRA,” Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, told Newsweek. “That is an extreme and overreaching remedy.” Gottlieb is also the chairman of the organization’s lobbying affiliate, Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

“Fortunately, for the gun rights movement, the strength of the NRA is not only in its leadership but in its members. Its members will not abandon the fight to protect Second Amendment rights,” Gottlieb said.

The question of whether James’ lawsuit presents a real challenge to the right to bear arms is a simple one for Dudley Brown, president of the National Association for Gun Rights. “I don’t think it would make any difference in the long run if the NRA actually did dissolve,” Brown told Newsweek. He said the recent civil unrest that has erupted across the nation in the wake of George Floyd’s death and the push to defund the police only exacerbates the demand for firearms and by extension the right to carry them. Brown said the uncertainty Americans have as a result “is doing a lot to build the number of gun owners in America and the record number of gun sales is pretty much proof.” Gun sales in the country have been on the rise since March. Driven by fears over the coronavirus pandemic and anti-police brutality protests, the U.S. is seeing a surge in gun sales among first-time owners at an unprecedented rate.

Gottlieb said both organization that he leads have seen an influx of new members who are either first-time gun owners or “NRA members looking to build a firewall to protect their rights.”

Although gun rights advocates are optimistic that James will be unsuccessful in dissolving the NRA, the possibility would leave an empty seat at the table when it comes to the gun debate—and groups from all sides want a shot at the vacant spot.

Former special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives David Chipman told Newsweek the end of the NRA would open up a vacuum that he’s unsure which group would fill. “There’s going to be a battle for the vacuum. This is just like when a gang gets arrested on the street. Other gangs fight,” Chipman said.

Chipman is now with Giffords, a gun violence prevention group.  [full article]
