The NRA Might Not Survive This

Two weeks ago, the attorney general of New York, Letitia James, sued to dissolve the National Rifle Association, alleging “years of self-dealing and illegal conduct that violate New York’s charities law and undermine its own mission.” The move came as a surprise to many, but for Tim Mak, an NPR investigative reporter who’s been following the NRA for years, it was just the latest twist in the organization’s long history of legal troubles. On Thursday’s episode of What Next, I talked to Mak about the attorney general’s action, whether it will work, and what it means for the 2020 election. Our conversation has been condensed and edited for clarity.
