Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has waged a full-scale war against the NRA in New York. He is doing whatever tactics necessary to shut their doors. Unfortunately, he is having success in doing so.
Currently Cuomo is using a tactic that is only seen in a fascist government where he uses the powers of the government to shut down business they don’t like. He has removed the Insurance policy “Carry Guard” from New York, which is an insurance policy provided by the NRA for Gun owners who use their gun for self-defense.
Cuomo appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe where he said he has blacklisted the NRA.
“But, look, from my point of view, I do disagree with [the NRA] politically, and if they have less money to bully and threaten politicians into irrational positions, you know, I’m not going to lose any sleep over that. And if they went away, you know, I would offer my thoughts and prayers, Joe. “
In May the NRA sued New York State Department of Financial Services and Cuomo because they violated the NRA’s First Amendment Right.
“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. The foundation of Defendants’ selective-enforcement and retaliation campaign is a series of threats to financial institutions that DFS, an agency created to ensure the integrity of financial markets after the 2008 credit crisis, will exercise its extensive regulatory power against entities that fail to sever ties with the NRA. To affect 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.”
On Morning Joe Cuomo said he will be reaching out to other states to do the same against the NRA.
“When they said that loss of this insurance product is going to make such a significant difference on their revenues, I am now reaching out to the other states because I believe this insurance product is going to be illegal from a public policy point of view in most states and now that the NRA said this is a major source of revenue, I’m going to pursue it nationwide.”
Cuomo ended with one final disgusting statement against the NRA.
“Look, I think these guys are bad guys, and it started from the Clinton administration with the SAFE Act that could have done great work, that the gun manufacturers supported until the NRA came in and literally pressured the gun manufacturers not to make an arrangement.”
If these are the tactics, the Democrats want to use then we must fight fire with fire. I believe it is time to make it a federal law to defund Planned Parent Hood and eliminate the Public Union all together. Then majority of the Democrat funding is ended dead in its tracks. Also, maybe we should look into removing George Soros’s citizenship, so Democrats don’t have the cash cow anymore either.
