With the trials of Kyle Rittenhouse and Ahmaud Arbery's accused murderers coming to a head in November, U.S. gun law and policy have captured global attention the same month a new book exposes the inner workings of the National Rifle Association—the most powerful group in shaping these topics.

NPR's investigative correspondent Tim Mak's book "Misfire: Inside the Downfall of the NRA" details what the author describes in an interview as the "serious existential threat to the NRA" posed by New York Attorney General Letitia James's (D) lawsuit seeking its dissolution.

"The NRA has in the past dealt with revolts from its members. It's dealt with legal problems. It's dealt with allegations of financial malfeasance and dealt with just incredible challenges from within and disparate factions in-fighting," Mak says on the latest episode of Law&Crime's podcast "Objections: with Adam Klasfeld."

"But it's never dealt with all of these things happening all at once and in this acute crisis," Mak added.

James, for her part, campaigned for attorney general by calling the NRA a "terrorist organization." Now, she's running for governor.
