Speaking of a complaint filed in court against New York state regulators for unfairly targeting the NRA, the group’s lead attorney, William Brewer III, referenced setbacks from “a blatant attack on the First Amendment rights of our organization.”
The setbacks, according to the NRA, include “serious difficulties obtaining corporate insurance coverage,” and because of this they may soon “be unable to exist.”
NRA-TV is one of the entities that could be on the chopping block, according to the filing.
Gun grabbers reacted to the news with glee, taking to social media to mock the pro-Second Amendment group by offering “thoughts and prayers,” which is also a slight against Christians.
Steve Kerr, the liberal head coach of the Golden State Warriors, led the way.
“Don’t send money……thoughts and prayers should suffice,” the former NBA player tweeted.

The New York State Department of Financial Services fined insurance broker Lockton Cos. $7 million and Chubb Ltd. $1.3 million over their involvement with Carry Guard.
According to the New York Post, Carry Guard provides coverage for criminal defense bills and protection from civil suits after using a gun in self-defense.
The NRA claims New York, under the leadership of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is involved in a campaign to pressure financial institutions and insurance carriers to cut ties with the group — which amounts to blacklisting.
And Cuomo got in on mocking the NRA… and Christians.
@NRA goes bankrupt because of the State of New York, they’ll be in my thoughts and prayers. I’ll see you in court,” he tweeted in response to an NPR article on the story.

The gun control crowd wants to attribute the news to the actions of a few misguided liberal students from Florida’s Stoneman Douglass High School, but donations to the NRA’s Political Victory Fund actually tripled following the tragic shooting, according to the Federal Election Commission.
There was some skepticism from some liberals over the claim the NRA may be going broke.
Reality check: the NRA is doing fine.
In 2016, the NRA spent nearly $140 million on legislative programs and public affairs, including $30M directly on Trump's campaign. Its fundraising is at record levels, spiking every time there is a mass shooting.https://t.co/55YljsrXAb https://t.co/36wJwyW4oN

If I believed this, I'd send thoughts and prayers, but I don't. I think it's a fundraising ploy. https://t.co/6jzCwn9gYI

Whether the NRA is going broke or not, they did not have to pay for their ice cream Saturday when the gun control industry showed up on the stoop of their Washington D.C. headquarters, with David Hogg, who called 5 million responsible gun owners “child murderers,” in the lead.
Hogg being under the protection of armed guards, of course.
“Today, @davidhogg111 (with armed security) and a bunch of gun-grabbing activists protested our empty HQ, and there were some interesting people there. Our social team chatted up the crowd and ended the day with ice cream paid for by @Everytown! Stay tuned for video interviews!” a tweet read on the NRA’s twitter feed.

The NRA also shared a telling video of the face of the current gun control movement in America.
Yesterday was #Saturday, which means our HQ employees were at home enjoying the sun with their family and friends. Meanwhile, #misinformed #gun-grabbing #protestors were chatting with our social media team. As promised, here is part 1 of 3. Stay tuned! Happy watching! pic.twitter.com/teB8eDvXB9
