Wayne Lapierre said: “We filed this bankruptcy to look for a fair legal playing field where NRA could prosper and grow in a fair legal environment,” External link

Wayne Lapierre replied: "the most important motion I’ve ever heard as a judge”. The NRA declared bankruptcy five months after New York Attorney General Letitia James sued seeking the group’s dissolution. The Democratic official alleged top NRA executives illegally diverted tens of millions of dollars for lavish personal trips, no-show contracts for associates and other questionable expenditures. The bankruptcy process freezes pending litigation. Among the allegations is that LaPierre sailed in the Bahamas on the yacht of Hollywood producer David McKenzie, whose company has done business with the NRA. But LaPierre did not pay for the trips nor mention them on financial disclosures as required by NRA policy, according to the suit. LaPierre acknowledge in a deposition that he used McKenzie's yacht in the summers following a 2012 school shooting in Connecticut and a 2018 massacre in Florida, and on other occasions. He said he didn't think the trips had to be disclosed because his family was on the yacht as a “security retreat”. The New York state lawyer asked LaPierre if McKenzie, who he said also goes by Stanton, was a friend. “In my work, if I’m the quarterback, he’s one of the people on the field that can hit, is block and tackling, can help us win this and further the interest of the NRA," External link
