“Another premeditated abuse of the public by our adversaries — who will stop at nothing in their pursuit of their anti-freedom agenda,” the group said in a statement. “Suffice it to say, the NRA has full confidence in its political activities and remains eager to set the record straight.”

The Giffords lawsuit comes as the NRA is facing legal battles on multiple fronts. New York Attorney General Letitia James sued the group in 2020, accusing it of financial misconduct. James is seeking to dissolve the NRA. And earlier this year, a federal judge denied the NRA’s bid to declare bankruptcy.

Giffords brought the case to the FEC, which took no action

The Giffords organization previously brought its complaints about the NRA to the Federal Election Commission and sued the FEC in an attempt to force it to rule on those complaints. When the FEC took no action, Giffords said, it sued the NRA directly.

The nonprofit was founded and is currently run by the former congresswoman who was shot during a Tucson campaign event in 2011.

The lawsuit was filed by the Campaign Legal Center Action on behalf of the nonprofit.
