Judge to New York AG: Sorry, You Can't Dissolve the NRA
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet
The Left’s war on the National Rifle Association has been ongoing for months. New York Attorney General Letitia James has vowed to dissolve the organization through a series of legal actions aimed at exposing the allegations of fraud and corruption among the upper crust of the group. The NRA is one of the nation’s oldest civil rights organizations, though how they’ve spent their donors’ money, among other things, has drawn immense scrutiny. Some items purchased with these funds were not earmarked properly. A wedding does not enhance or promote Second Amendment rights. This has been a months-long saga, but a judge on the New York State Supreme Court has ruled the AG cannot nuke the organization (via The Reload):

New York Attorney Letitia James (D.) has been dealt a major setback in her corruption case against the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Moldova prepared to defend itself after map shows former Soviet republic as possible next Russian target
Moldova is prepared to defend itself against a "very worst-case scenario," Ambassador Eugen Caras says

The Moldovan ambassador to the U.S. said Wednesday his country is prepared to defend its borders if Russia or Belarus were to invade the former Soviet republic. 

"The country is prepared [for] any kind of scenarios, including the very worst-case scenario," Ambassador Eugen Caras told Fox News in an exclusive interview. "So we will be defending what's to be defended."

A day earlier, video surfaced showing Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko standing in front of a map that appeared to indicate the Moldovan breakaway state of Transnistria as a potential next target.

Lukashenko is Russian President Vladimir Putin’s closest ally in the region. Belarus was instrumental in the lead-up to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

‘Mistake’ on the map? Caras said the Belarusians told Moldovan officials that the placement of Moldova on the map was a "mistake."
