Everytown, Moms Demand Action Respond to Reports That New York Attorney General Has Opened an Investigation Into the NRA’s Dealings as a Tax-exempt Organization
NEW YORK — Everytown for Gun Safety, the country’s largest gun violence prevention organization, today responded to a New York Times report that the New York Attorney General has opened an investigation into the NRA, a tax-exempt organization chartered in New York. News of the investigation comes as the NRA deals with a leadership struggle during its annual convention.
“In light of the recent, credible allegations of excessive invoicing and personal enrichment by insiders, it’s encouraging that the New York Attorney General is looking into the NRA, and we renew our call for other state and federal authorities to do the same,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety. “Sunlight is the best disinfectant.”
