You can’t make this stuff up. Millions are without power and New York Gov. Cuomo (the king of blue state Govs gone wild) blames it on the utility companies. Welcome to Chernobyl.
Now, Cuomo’s hitwoman, Attorney General Letitia James, is going after the NRA. This is on the heels of his handwringing about lost tax revenue.
News to Cuomo: How New Yorkers live their lives shouldn’t be your problem, especially when you send the sick to nursing homes.
Stupid people follow stupid orders; smart ones figure out how to protect their family. Buying guns is one way, as De Blasio guts the police. Talk about the three blind mice.
Smart New Yorkers are buying guns. And they’re not alone as nationally guns sales are breaking RECORDS: nearly 1.8 million sold in July alone.
If you want to create a NEW RECORD one would be hard pressed to outdo what AG James is doing here, and what Obama’s recent Lewis funeral tirade is doing on a national level.
As Cuomo, James, and De Blasio attack the Second Amendment using debunked gun control myths, it’s not hard to imagine how the many new gun owners will feel about electing anti-gun politicians in 2020.
Successful New Yorkers are voting with their feet, moving to places where their money is treated with the respect it deserves, and if they have to stick around, they’re locked and loaded for what’s next.
Why has New York Attorney General Letitia James, the chief legal officers of a state in which the biggest city is enduring a spike in crime, chosen this moment to launch a futile, partisan attack on America’s largest civil rights organization, the NRA?
Perhaps her attack is an effort to distract New Yorkers from the terrible job she and her colleagues in Albany have done.
Undoubtedly James believes she is helping the Biden campaign by attacking the NRA. But, the NRA has added 1,000 new members every day since June, and as Stephen Gutowski reports in the Free Beacon, plans to spend “tens of millions” of dollars campaigning for President Trump and other pro-gun politicians in battleground states.
Politico reporter, Holly Otterbein wrote on Twitter that “Some Pennsylvania Democratic elected officials are panicked about the NRA lawsuit’s effect on the presidential race. One told me it was an “October surprise”: ‘This is the equivalent of Alabama AG suing to dissolve Planned Parenthood for the left.'”

Pennsylvania is rumored to have the most NRA members of any state, and in 2018 sold the second-highest number of hunting licenses, tags, permits and stamps (after Wisconsin) at nearly 2.4 million, according to REALTREE. Needless to say, Pennsylvania has a large and active gun rights community. A frontal assault on the NRA by nearby NY’s Attorney General is going to get every one of Pennsylvania’s gun owners headed to the polls in 2020. That’s scaring not just Pennsylvania Democrats, but Joe Biden’s presidential campaign team as well.
James seems unconcerned by the fears of Pennsylvania Democrats. More likely she is focused on impressing Michael Bloomberg, whose anti-gun organization, Everytown for Gun Safety, has pledged to spend $60 million on the 2020 election, and will surely spend more in the future.
In New York, the position of Attorney General is often a springboard to the governorship, and James may be working hard to impress big donors like Bloomberg and Everytown with future plans in mind. The anti-gun movement led by Bloomberg survives by peddling myths about gun control that have been debunked by researchers like John Lott.
Despite blue state politicians trying to take away their freedom, Americans want guns now more than ever. As rioters and looters plague the streets, politicians in blue states and cities seem unconcerned for their constituents’ livelihoods or safety. Americans can feel the clock ticking, and they must protect their family.
Anyone who can is getting out of the big cities, and those who can’t should get their guns and their training now. The big city riots are the best advertisement for gun ownership ever. You need to protect your family.
