    It's tough to compete against a rabid gun hater with ~$60 billion in his wallet who is willing to seed just about any anti-gun group on the state and national level.

    Should have used "[]" instead of <>

    One of the NRA's major financial headaches is the lawsuit NY Gov Cuomo brought against them over their carry insurance. Several other states have followed suit. Something like $30 million in fines or whatever. There are many ways to kill an enemy if you're creative enough.

    A lot of this is misinformation. When the NRA filed suit against Coumo and other individuals in NY government, they had to portray the worst case scenario should the illegal conspiracy continue to deprive them of the right to do business. This included the possibility of going completely out of business. Bloomberg's paid and unpaid minions have seized on this as 'proof' the NRA is failing and are touting that to anyone who cares to listen.
    The actual contributions made by the NRA to politicians barely make the top 100 donors ( individuals and organization). Www.opensecrets.org to do your own research.
    The power of the NRA is and has always been its ability to mobilize millions of single-issue voters like us. Bloomberg's astroturf organizations can't approach that level of real support so they try and isolate the NRA as much as possible.
    The case is not about the carry guard insurance, it is about New York financial regulators illegally squeezing banks into denying the NRA access to ordinary business financial services.
