After the video was posted on social media, NRA Director of Media Relations Amy Hunter said the group was eager to end the targeting by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration and settle in a gun-friendly state.
“Regardless of political ideology or even stance on the Second Amendment, principled Americans understand that the NRA was targeted by Andrew Cuomo and Letitia James for political reasons. Subject to court approval, we plan to reincorporate in Texas — a state that embraces personal liberty, freedom, and our Second Amendment,” she told Secrets.
Cruz assured viewers that despite media reports saying that the NRA is teetering on failure, it remains strong. “The media is trying to tell you that the NRA is dead, that it’s bankrupt, that it’s hurting, and you know why they want you to believe that? Because that’s what the media wants. I’m here to tell you it isn’t true,” he said.
