    I am looking for the Transcripts from the NRA Bankruptcy hearing in Texas. I searched for the link but have missed it.

    I joined the NRA in the 80's I believed in the cause and I still believe we need to defend our rights for the 2nd Amendment ...
    I think we have lost our way and need to get back to Basics.
    What I have heard is disturbing, but I want to read the transcript for myself.

    If anyone knows of a link please share .

    Thanks

    I've been following it on the Law&Crime site. What a show. I don't think anyone know how deep Wayne's criminality ran.
    No one but the law firm knew he was filing bankruptcy. Not the CFO or general council of the NRA knew. The Board didn't know.
    He was running a scam for the benefit of himself and friends.
    I can't wait until a trustee is appointed and Wayne finds out about claw backs.

    The thread is about the technical details of the bankruptcy case. Posts not relevant to that are deleted.

    Is there a summary or precis for the technical aspects?
    I'm not seeing how creating SeaGirt as a front, and then declaring SeaGrit bankrupt affects the NYS case.

    Lesson to be learned there???

    the public learned how the NRA chief avoids a digital trail.

    “Is it true you send no emails?” Sheehan asked.
    “That’s correct,” LaPierre replied.

    “Is it true that you send no texts?” the attorney continued.
    “That’s correct,” the NRA chief answered again.

    Makes me wonder how many get their texts and Emails used against them? Without a text, Email or letter, it's word against word. He may be shady, but not a fool.

    On Monday the US Trustee weighed in on the NRA Bankruptcy:

    "The National Rifle Association’s hopes of end-running a legal challenge in New York were dealt a serious blow on Monday when a Justice Department official rebuked its leadership and called for the dismissal of its bankruptcy filing or the appointment of an outside monitor to oversee its finances.

    Lisa L. Lambert, a lawyer in the United States Trustee’s office, which is part of the Justice Department, said the “evidentiary record clearly and convincingly establishes” that Wayne LaPierre, the longtime N.R.A. chief executive, “has failed to provide the proper oversight.” For a number of years, she added, “the record is unrefuted that Wayne LaPierre’s personal expenses were made to look like business expenses.”

    .................................................................................................................................................................................................

    John Pottow, who teaches bankruptcy at the University of Michigan Law School, called the trustee’s intervention “a glaring signal of profound dysfunction” at the N.R.A., adding that such an intervention by the trustee “doesn’t happen very often.”

    This is a good news aggregation website on the NRA bankruptcy case and several other legal cases the NRA is involved with related to the bankruptcy and related legal issues.

    ETA: a disclaimer the above website is run by Everytown for Gun Safety (an anti 2A group) that does not change the factual information contained there in.

    I have to take issue with at least one statement in the article first cited: "The United States Trustee Program oversees the integrity of the nation’s bankruptcy courts." The trustee program answers to the judges and assists in the administration of the bankruptcy code, but is not an oversight organization. It is an arm of the DOJ, which is a part of the executive branch, so is not an independent entity. It is unusual for USTP to be advocating for their own involvement, but we should get a ruling from the court next week.

    If that is a good news aggregation website I hope never to see a bad one. :scrutiny:

    You need to know what your enemy knows and is trying to message. Ignoring that puts you at a disadvantage.

    We had a problem here in Indiana with NAGR. They seem to attack gun owners in the name of the 2nd amendment.
    We were preparing to have constitutional carry and NAGR ran attack ads against Guy Relford, the 2A project, and gun owners.
