Politically speaking, of course. Ari Fleischer explains why he believes this lawsuit against the NRA will backfire on Democrats bigtime:
Here’s more from Fox News:
The New York attorney general is “one of the most partisan figures,” said Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer on Thursday, as he criticized Letitia James’ move to try to dissolve the National Rifle Association.
“This is how an office gets politicized. On the merits of this, there are always two sides to a lawsuit. Let’s see what the NRA says to defend themselves here, I don’t know the facts, but on the politics of it, this is one of the dumbest biggest mistakes an attorney general or anyone can make on an election year,” the former George W. Bush White House press secretary told “Outnumbered Overtime.”
Fleischer said that the move by James is a “mistake during an election year” because it will “energize gun owners across the country as if they are not energized already.”
“If you think there is a threat to your Second Amendment rights before, wait until the Democrats now try to get rid of the organization that represents gun owners,” Fleischer said.
“This, politically, is going to backfire on the Democrats and then of course, as a suit, it’ll play out over years, not weeks. But the politics are playing out immediately,” he noted.
Fleischer actually says this is “going to backfire on the Democrats BIGTIME”, which Fox News left out of the transcript. And boy do I hope he’s right. This really is an attack on our Second Amendment rights because once Democrats crush the NRA, they are coming for the Constitution in whatever way they can.
We already see how they are using lies to crush police departments. As crime to continues to skyrocket in these cities, they will keep blaming guns as the problem, demand a federal solution and without the NRA to stand in their way, some Republicans will fold like a cheap suit.
