NRA sues New York for closing gun shops during pandemic

April 3, 2020

  For the most part the people are lying supinely on their backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope as the government uses the coronavirus pandemic to wipe its feet on the Constitution. 

  But there is one organization which is fighting back against this long train of abuses and usurpations and that group is the NRA. The NRA is already fighting California for using the pandemic as an excuse to shut down gun shops and now they are suing New York for the same. Here is more:

The NRA explains that the suit centers on the closure of gun stores resulting from “Executive Order 202.8, issued by Gov. Cuomo on March 20, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 health crisis.”

The NRA claims the gun store closures “effectively and indefinitely suspended a key component of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution – shutting down all gun stores in the State of New York, including federally licensed gun stores, by deeming them ‘non-essential’ businesses.”

NRA CEO and Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said:

There isn’t a single person who has ever used a gun for self-defense who would consider it nonessential. This is clearly another assault by Gov. Cuomo on the NRA, on the rights of New Yorkers to defend themselves and their families, and on our Second Amendment freedoms. The NRA will continue to fight all such attacks until Gov. Cuomo recognizes that constitutional rights are for every New Yorker and every American – and not just for politicians and their privileged friends.

  These two lawsuits are most likely not going to be settled before this crisis is over but this is still important because now that the government has seen how easily the people rolled over and how willingly they accepted this abuse of power we are going to see more and more of this and for longer and longer periods of time. This is only the beginning…
