NRA files for chapter 11, plans move to Texas
The National Rifle Association said late Friday that it has filed for chapter 11 in a Texas bankruptcy court, saying the "restructuring plan" will help streamline its legal and financial affairs and ensure its "continued success." The organization also said it was leaving New York and going forward with plans to reincorporate in Texas. "The plan can be summed up quite simply: We are DUMPING New York, and we are pursuing plans to reincorporate the NRA in Texas," the NRA said in a letter in its website signed by Wayne LaPierre, its chief executive. The organization said it was not insolvent and is "as financially strong as we have been in years." The NRA and New York have been in an ongoing, high-profile legal battle for months.

Dow ends down over 170 points after disappointing December retail sales
U.S. stock-market benchmarks finished lower on Friday, booking weekly losses after a third straight drop in retail sales highlighted weakness in consumer spending at the turn of the year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 177 points, or 0.6%, to 30,814, based on preliminary numbers. The S&P 500 slipped 0.7% to end around 3,768. The Nasdaq Composite slid 0.9% to finish near 12,999. For the week, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq both fell 1.5%, while the Dow shed 0.9%. The disappointing retail sales data added to the urgency of further fiscal support. President-elect Joe Biden unveiled a proposed $1.9 trillion stimulus package on Thursday evening, but the bill has drawn widespread skepticism among analysts who question the package's viability. Investors also watched the unofficial start to corporate earnings season, with JPMorgan Chase reporting profits that beat expectations. However, revenues for Citigroup and Wells Fargo fell short of analyst estimates.
