  • The NRA Finally Takes an Interest in New Yorkistan

    It looks like the NRA is challenging Cuomo's push to get the financial industry to work against gun companies.

    https://bearingarms.com/tom-k/2018/05/15/nra-files-suit-new-york-states-attempt-financial-pressure/

    The National Rifle Association filed suit against the New York State Department of Financial Services and Governor Andrew Cuomo (D.) on Friday, alleging they violated the group’s First Amendment rights.

    The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York, said New York engaged in a “viewpoint-based discrimination campaign” against the NRA and its members. It claims that the governor and regulatory agency he oversees have engaged in a pressure campaign against financial institutions that deal with the NRA.

    “Directed by Governor Andrew Cuomo, this campaign involves selective prosecution, backroom exhortations, and public threats with a singular goal—to deprive the NRA and its constituents of their First Amendment right to speak freely about gun-related issues and defend the Second Amendment,” lawyers for the gun rights group wrote in their filing. “To effect their sweeping agenda, Defendants issued public demands that put DFS-regulated institutions on notice to ‘discontinue their arrangements with the NRA’ and other ‘gun promotion organizations’ if they planned to do business in New York.”


    Maybe the NRA lawyers will take a look at the SAFE act while they're in town.

    1st Amendment suit is probably a much easier case to make from a civil rights perspective. I like the switch up in tactics, not sure how this will pan out though......

      So ...
      You're agreeing that the 1A, as well as the 2A ... are legislatively granted statutory "rights" ...?

                    I'd love to see monkey face go down, but like the rest of the lawsuits, I'm not holding my breath on this one.

                      Yeah the NRA finally took interest in NY - As in looking to take more money from a NY resident. Guy calls me this morning from West Virginia but my caller ID says Webster NY looking for me to make $100 or more donation Or extend my membership for three years. In return I get a free pocket knife. Then I proceeded to ask him why they needed more money and he told me about How the NRA is being attacked and our 2A rights being challenged and taken away. So I asked him where was the NRA back in 2013 when NY residents 2A rights were taken away. I explain to him that if the NRA had stepped up back then and fought this in court we might not be in this problem now. His response - oh I didn’t know about that.

                        I have received several of those calls since Vegas. I politely tell them that I prefer to spend my money with GOA, who actually had the balls to stand up to the antigunners in Washington instead of kissing the anti's asses like the NRA did with bump stocks.
