The National Rifle Association sued New York state officials over what it described as a "blacklisting campaign" targeting companies that try to do business with the group.

The organization filed a complaint Friday in Syracuse federal court accusing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state Department of Financial Services of abuses of regulatory power aimed at stifling the gun-rights advocacy group’s right to free speech.
