New York Attorney General Letitia James announced a lawsuit on Thursday that seeks to "dissolve" the National Rifle Association (NRA).
The lawsuit accuses the NRA of various "illegal conduct" that includes misusing charitable funds, awarding contracts to close associates and buying the silence of former employees.
Many Twitter users reacted by noting that a Black woman could be responsible for "taking down" the NRA.
"A black woman destroying the NRA is a thing of beauty," one commenter wrote. "Thank you Letitia James."
