GOP current lawmakers and former officials welcomed the National Rifle Association (NRA) to Texas in a Twitter video posted Thursday.
The NRA announced they will be leaving New York and relocating to Texas to make for the most “successful and powerful NRA ever.”
“Let me say to the NRA – welcome to Texas,” Sen. Ted Cruz said. “We are thrilled to have the great National Rifle Association coming to the great state of Texas.”
“NRA incorporating itself in Texas will make it the most successful NRA organization we have ever seen,” added Rep. Burgess Owens.
New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit in August seeking to dissolve the NRA claiming decades of fraudulent use of the group’s funds.
“She called the organization a terrorist organization,” Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson said. “She all but said she would find a way to get rid of the organization and purge them from New York.”
NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre said the move will help the organization be “free from the toxic political environment of New York.”
LaPierre denied any reports that may suggest the NRA is bankrupt or going out of business.
“The media wants you to abandon hope,” Cruz said. “The media wants you to give up. The media is trying to tell you that the NRA is dead, that it’s bankrupt, that it’s hurting. And you know why they want you to believe that? Because that’s what the media wants. I’m here to tell you it isn’t true.”
“The NRA’s been around for 150 years,” Rep. Jim Jordan said. “It’s not going anywhere. It’s going to be as strong as ever.
“To the NRA I’m proud to say – welcome to Texas,” Cruz concluded the video.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Fights Back DOJ Challenging Legal Citizenship Voter Law
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division with one clear message: ‘We’ll see you in court.’
Biden’s DOJ is challenging an Arizona law aimed to protect its citizens by ensuring only citizens can vote in elections.
Brnovich makes mention of a letter he received from Kristen Clarke, Assistant Attorney General, dated June 27, 2022 “expressing your intent to challenge HB 2492, Arizona’s law that assures only citizens are able to vote in our elections.”
“Please be assured that I will defend this law to the U.S. Supreme our if necessary and defeat the federal government’s efforts to interfere with our state’s election safeguards, as I did last year in Brnovich v. DNC” the letter continued.
“It is curious, however, that the Department of Justice would use its resources to challenge a common sense law inn Arizona designed to guard against non-citizen voting, while the Biden Administration nis simultaneously opening our borders to encourage a flood of illegal immigration.”
“Is the federal government attempting to undermine our sovereignty and destabilize our election infrastructure?” Brnovich asks. “I hope that is not your intention.” The Arizona Attorney General concludes his letter by writing “I strongly urge you to reconsider your pursuit of this misguided suit and to instead recognize Arizona’s constitutional authority to conduct lawful and secure elections.”
After Biden invites millions to illegally enter our country, his DOJ is challenging Arizona’s law to ensure only citizens can vote.
Alas the clouds part to show the true sky. We’ll see you in court! pic.twitter.com/7dHgh1i4xh
