Skip to comments.In Lawsuit, NRA Says Gov. Cuomo's 'Coercion' Has Cost Them Millions
Posted on 08/06/2018 12:28:53 PM PDT by libstripper
The NRA is accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) of trying to "deprive" them and their constituents of "their First Amendment rights to speak freely about gun-related issues and defend the Second Amendment" in a new lawsuit.
In April, Cuomo directed state regulators to "urge insurance companies, New York State-chartered banks, and other financial services companies licensed in New York to review any relationships they may have with the National Rifle Association." The governor's part in encouraging these entities to end their partnerships with the gun rights organization did much to hurt their finances, the group alleges.
At the same time, Defendants engaged in back-channel communications to reinforce their intended purpose. Simply put, Defendants made it clear to banks and insurers that it is bad business in New York to do business with the NRA. As a direct result of this coercion, multiple financial institutions have succumbed to Defendants demands and entered into consent orders with DFS that compel them to terminate longstanding, beneficial business relationships with the NRA, both in New York and elsewhere. (Apparent quote from complaint, my italics.)

Hey Jeff...any RICO or restraint of trade stuff going on here? Have you checked?
Gov Cuomo has his head stuck in a dark smelly place where he suffers brain damage from oxygen deprivation.
Hey, hey, what can I say....
The NRA will WIN THE DAY!
Somebody find Black’s Law Dictionary for Jeffy. He doesn’t know what REEKO means.
This is a more detailed article:
This is the NRA’s legal complaint as filed with the US District Court:
Eventually, once the Dems get back in power, they will declare the NRA a domestic terrorist organization and will go after its officers, then the various levels of members.
That’s how they will kill the NRA.
Cuomo is wrong, hope he pays.
In other words, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been engaged in actual Fascism, not the imaginary type that low-IQ leftists have been bloviating about...
Perhaps they didn’t notice that NRA has a lot of lawyers in it.
Democrat power is being shut down nationally. They have become true enemies of Constitutional government.
“Just imagine what would happen to the State of Alabama if it did exactly the same thing to the NAACP and the SPLC by attacking their banks”
Just out of curiosity, why did you pick Alabama for your example? Where are you from?
Move the NRA to Wyoming
I couldn’t think of any state the Federal judiciary would be more bigoted against.
At that point it becomes a hot war.
Thats how I will behave.
Good answer. Thanks.
NRA should use Texas banks for operations. We’ll bring some high school bands to serenade you when land at the airport.
