New York attorney general seeks to dissolve National Rifle Association over alleged financial mismanagement

It is the most powerful gun rights group in the US, but now the National Rifle Association (NRA) is being sued for millions of dollars.

The New York attorney general says she aims to “dissolve” the organisation – alleging it had diverted millions of dollars to its leaders for their personal use.

The NRA have hit back, calling the lawsuit a “baseless attack” on second amendment freedoms.
