Two Can Play That Game

By V. Saxena. May 1st, 2018

Last month the governor of New York tried to stick it to the National Rifle Association by ordering his officials to pressure financial institutions like banks and insurers to stop conducting business with the five million-member-strong gun rights organization. Little did he know at the time that he had just screwed up royally.

"I am directing the Department of Financial Services to urge insurers and bankers statewide to determine whether any relationship they may have with the NRA or similar organizations sends the wrong message to their clients and their communities," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a press release published April 19.

Roughly a week after the governor launched his veritable war against the NRA, one of the country's "premier ammunition suppliers to law enforcement" struck back by completely cutting off Cuomo's administration.

"Hornady will not knowingly allow our ammunition to be sold to the Government of the State of NY or any NY State agencies. Their actions are a blatant and disgusting abuse of office and we won't be associated with a government that acts like that. They should be ashamed," ammo manufacturer Hornady announced on Facebook: .......

Since Parkland in particular, efforts towards (even) more "gun control" have expanded in various directions. Not only have moves against the AR platform increased but we have seen efforts by financial organizations to boycott the NRA and gun sales - some sporting goods businesses have joined in as well. Here, we see an attempt by the NY governor to further encourage financial institutions to join in but he may well have achieved some well deserved backlash from an ammunition manufacturer. Perhaps there are some other states to whom this could be applied!
