Federal Judge Dismisses NRA Bankruptcy Case
Top executive Wayne LaPierre acknowledged putting the NRA into Chapter 11 bankruptcy without the signoff of several board members and executives.

The NRA's headquarters is in Virginia, but it's incorporated in New York, where it was chartered as a nonprofit in 1871.
Top executive Wayne LaPierre acknowledged putting the NRA into Chapter 11 bankruptcy without the signoff of several board members and executives. He pledged in a statement to continue to fight for gun rights.
