The National Rifle Association filed a lawsuit Friday against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state’s financial regulatory bureau for what it labeled a “blacklisting campaign” aimed at the gun advocacy group.
According to NRA attorney William A. Brewer III, Cuomo and the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) attempted to impede the association’s right to “speak freely about gun-related issues and defend the Second Amendment.”
Last week, NYDFS struck insurance broker Lockton Cos LLC, which administered the NRA insurance program “Carry Guard,” with a $2 million fine.
Just five days later, the department served Illinois Union Insurance and its parent company, Chubb Ltd, with a $1.3 million penalty for having “unlawfully provided liability insurance to gun owners for acts of intentional wrongdoing.”
