New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Wednesday blasted the National Rifle Association (NRA) for sending him a candidate questionnaire amid his reelection bid.

“I received your 2018 N.Y. Candidate Questionnaire,” Cuomo wrote in a public letter to the NRA. “I imagine it was sent to me in error or as some twisted joke.”

“In case you forgot, this year, last year, the year before, and the year before that — I received an F rating from the NRA,” he added. “I’ll take my F rating again this year and wear it with pride.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The NRA doles out letter grades to candidates based on their support for its agenda.

“And, by the way, I’ll see you in court,” he wrote at the end of the letter, referring to the NRA’s ongoing lawsuit against the governor.

The NRA alleges in a lawsuit that it is facing financial danger after the state of New York pressured financial institutions to cut ties. In a court filing first reported by Rolling Stone, the NRA claims Cuomo directed a “viewpoint-based discrimination campaign against the NRA and the millions of law-abiding gun owners that it represents.”

In particular, the lawsuit claims Cuomo, alongside New York’s Department of Financial Services and  the state’s superintendent of financial services, Maria Vullo, told banks and insurers that it is “bad business in New York to do business with the NRA.”

Cuomo announced last Friday that New York would be filing a motion to dismiss the NRA’s lawsuit.
