Governor Andrew Cuomo Responds to the NRA

With the NRA’s (National Rifle Association) recent lawsuit blaming the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo for their financial struggles, Cuomo responded in kind.

Rather than backing down, Governor Cuomo is stating publicly for other governors to seek similar actions against Carry Guard, the NRA’s insurance program. Carry Guard Insurance protects one by reimbursing members for legal costs in relationship to firing a weapon/self-defense shootings.

Governor Cuomo’s response to the NRA-

“If I could have put the NRA out of business, I would have done it twenty years ago. I’m tired of hearing the politicians say, we’ll remember them in our thoughts and prayers. If the NRA goes away, I’ll remember the NRA in my thoughts and prayers.” – Governor Andrew Cuomo.

NRA Lawsuit/Attorney

William Brewer is the attorney representing the NRA in the lawsuit. His response is seen below.

“It appears the Governor has launched yet another crusade against the NRA to fuel his political ambitions. The governor’s current campaign against the NRA extends far beyond Carry Guard. His scorched earth tactics are designed to prohibit the NRA from having access to insurance and banking services — simply because he disagrees with the political viewpoint of this law-abiding organization. Suffice it to say, the NRA will continue to vigorously defend itself, advocate for the Second Amendment, and fight to protect the Constitutional freedoms of all Americans.”

The NRA’s real problem is its inability to control spending. Recent tax returns shows that the NRA spent $412 million in 2016, but only received $366.9 million.
