NY: Employee with NRA T-shirt sent home when Gov. Cuomo came to visit

[Ed. – Apparently, someone thinks Cuomo’s constitution is really that weak.]

In an exclusive, a reader of Bullets First who works for the hydrogen fuel cell company, Plug Power, passed along the following email that was sent to the Plug employees prior to the Governor’s visit:


Tomorrow morning, Wednesday, 10/8, Plug Power will be hosting a VIP guest through our manufacturing facility from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Over the next 24 hours, we’ll be prepping the building for this tour. We ask that you contribute by straightening up your work space…

While there is no dress code for Wednesday, please remember you will be representing Plug Power to a high-level guest. Please refrain from wearing:
– shorts
– shirts with any offensive comments/photos
– ripped/torn clothing

An employee on the manufacturing floor wore an NRA shirt and was sent home because the Governor, architect of the SAFE Act and SAFE Act 2 has such a weak constitution that he doesn’t even want to be seen in the same FACTORY as someone who believes in the 2nd Amendment. …

Assemblyman Stephen McLaughlin of Albany put it best:

“I think the Governor is a bully.  An elitist, arrogant bully.”

That he is, and more.  Apparently, according to the Governor, if you even believe in the 2nd Amendment and have the gall to wear a t-shirt to that effect in his presence, then you don’t even deserve to work.  No doubt the worker was sent home without pay and had to take a sick day if he wanted to be earn any money on Wednesday.
