New York's attorney general took aggressive action to dissolve the National Rifle Association, and social media users danced on the once-powerful organization's grave.


Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit seeking the NRA's dissolution and the removal of longtime chief Wayne LaPierre over fraud and corruption claims involving millions of dollars uncovered as part of an 18-month investigation.

Gun safety organization March For Our Lives, founded by survivors of the Parkland, Florida, mass shooting in 2018, claimed credit for prompting the investigation that threatens to bring down the gun lobbying group.
