Governor Cuomo just got a rude awakening.
And it’s about freaking time.
He’s checking all of those progressive boxes now that there’s another leftist giving him a real race — actress Cynthia Nixon of Sex and the City fame has Hollywood star power, the endorsement of the Working Families Party, and checks two of the identity boxes as both a woman and a lesbian. As a matter of fact, former City Council speaker, Christine Quinn dismissed Nixon as ‘an unqualified lesbian’. Nixon responded by selling ‘Unqualified Lesbian’ merch to raise money for her campaign.
Because the race is getting tight, Gov. Cuomo (D-NY) figures that he can do as he likes — as long as it’ll get him some leftist votes.

That’s just since January.
Here’s his latest tactic:
- Warning Banks and Insurers they would suffer ‘reputational risk’ by doing business with the NRA and the gun industry
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 who often look to them for guidance and support. This is not just a matter of reputation, it is a matter of public safety, and working together, we can put an end to gun violence in New York once and for all.
Who the hell does this guy think he is?
He obviously has no respect for law-abiding gun owners.
He even cites that New York has is one of the most restrictive states when it comes to firearms ownership.
The New York Daily News reports:
In letters to be sent as early as Wednesday, the state’s top financial services regulator warns banks and insurers of the “reputational risk” they incur by doing business with the National Rifle Association and the gun industry.
The letter from Department of Financial Services Superintendent Maria Vullo does not threaten to impose any penalties on institutions that maintain ties with the gun industry, but notes the public outcry that followed the recent shooting rampage at a high school in Parkland, Fla.
“The tragic devastation caused by gun violence that we have regrettably been increasingly witnessing is a public safety and health issue that should no longer be tolerated by the public and there will undoubtedly be increasing public backlash against the NRA and the gun industry,” Vullo said.
Well, honey, two can play that game.
Hornady has made the decision to completely cut off the government of the state of New York and state agencies.
Who does Gov. Andrew Cuomo think he is, telling New York banks and insurers to blackball the gun and ammo industry?…
Ammunition giant Hornady is cutting off government buyers in New York over an order by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to financial services companies regarding gun politics.
Steve Hornady, the company’s president of manufacturing, announced on social media on Friday that the ammo maker will halt sales of their products to Cuomo’s state government or agencies in the Empire State. The move comes after an order directed by Cuomo earlier last month that cautioned banks, insurance companies and lenders against involvement with the National Rifle Association and similar organizations. Slamming the Governor’s move as one of the most “despicable acts ever perpetrated by any state,” Hornady closed the doors to the state.
“While it may not make a difference to New York, Hornady will not knowingly allow our ammunition to be sold to the Government of the State of NY or any NY agencies,” Hornady said. “Their actions are a blatant and disgusting abuse of office and we won’t be associated with a government that acts like that.”
And do you blame them?
After all, as Gov. Cuomo reminded Hornady, their reputation is on the line.
In recent weeks, big-name lenders such as Citi and Bank of America have adopted new policies that could see them cut ties with partnering businesses unwilling to adopt new policies for selling firearms or manufacturing some types of semi-automatic guns — which has in turn brought calls for more regulatory oversight of the institutions with respect to government contracts.
Hornady is one of the premier ammunition suppliers to law enforcement in the country. The company recently was awarded a $19 million contract to provide a new generation of 9mm duty rounds to the FBI.
Good on ya, Hornady!
That’s the right way to deal with Nanny-State leftists.
Let’s see if other gun and ammo manufacturers will do the same.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.

Why be average? It’s so overrated.
Everyone does that.
