The NRA is claiming they’ve lost tens of millions of dollars due to financial sanctions inflicted upon it by the state of New York.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has placed sanctions on the NRA for their Carry Guard insurance program, which covers legal costs stemming from self-defense shootings. New York says the program is illegal and the Department of Financial Services has also pushed firms not to do business with the NRA. They’re also urging other states to take similar measures against the gun advocacy group.
There’s a lot of skepticism of the NRA’s claim. The organization keeps its finances private as well as their number of members. This could be another fundraising stunt since they’re accusing Cuomo’s actions of being a political vendetta. Perhaps Russian spies have stopped financing the organization.
Instead of financially supporting the NRA in their hour of need, I suggest offers of thoughts and prayers.
Creative notes: This is a bonus cartoon because I might want to take another day off this weekend. It’s also why you’re getting a really short blog.
Your support in the form of donations is appreciated. I am fully independent as I’m not employed by a newspaper or with a major syndicate (leaving one to be independent). It does take a lot of work to provide you with cartoons, columns, and videos almost every day (more than any other political cartoonist), and I don’t charge my clients much at all. If you can, please consider making a financial contribution to keep the fun flowing, or purchase a signed print for $40. Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!!
Watch me draw.
