On Friday, it was reported that the National Rifle Association is in deep financial trouble. The NRA is waging a lawsuit in the state of New York claiming that the state is responsible for the gun lobbying group’s problems. According to USA Today:

‘The gun-rights organization said it may soon have to stop producing its magazines and its video streaming service, NRAtv, because of actions by the state of New York, which the NRA accused of running a “blacklisting campaign.”‘

Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr did not waste anytime mocking the NRA on Twitter. Kerr tweeted:

‘Don’t send money…Thoughts and prayers should suffice.’

The NRA’s lawsuit targets NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York State Department of Financial Services, and Maria Vullo who heads the department. They allege that that the state has caused “irrecoverable loss and irreparable harm” to their organization. USA Today reported:

‘The NRA claims in its lawsuit that it has lost its insurance coverage, something it claims its carrier wouldn’t renew for “any price.” New York, the NRA says, has interfered with its business by coercing “insurance agencies, insurers, and banks into terminating business relationships with the NRA that were necessary to the survival of the NRA.”‘

The lawsuit states:

‘If the NRA is unable to collect donations from its members, safeguard the assets endowed to it, apply its funds to cover media buys and other expenses integral to its political speech, and obtain basic corporate insurance coverage, it will be unable to exist as a not-for-profit or pursue its advocacy mission. Defendants seek to silence one of America’s oldest constitutional rights advocates. If their abuses are not enjoined, they will soon, substantially, succeed.’
