First They Came for the NRA … | The Stream

By JOHN ZMIRAK

Do you remember when state attorneys general learned about Planned Parenthood selling baby parts for profit, in violation of multiple laws? So a coordinated group of big-state AGs filed suit to dissolve the organization?

Or that time when the FBI, learning of various mosques’ links to the terror-funding Muslim Brotherhood, sought to close those mosques?

Or when the U.S. Attorney General responded to bishops shuffling pedophile priests by suing to dissolve the Catholic Church in America?

A Bizarre, Political Prosecution

No, of course not. Because such things never happened. Nor should they. It’s not normal for prosecutors to react that way. If the state finds legal irregularities on the part of a private organization’s leaders, its job is clear. It’s supposed to protect the organization’s members, just as the SEC protects stockholders from CEOs who steal from the company.

Imagine that your Methodist or Southern Baptist pastor got accused of using your tithe money for trips to Nevada brothels. Would you expect your district attorney to try to dissolve your church? Is that a fair response?
