Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr mocked the National Rifle Association (NRA) late Friday after the group revealed in a lawsuit that it may be “unable to exist” due to financial trouble.
“Don’t send money……thoughts and prayers should suffice,” tweeted Kerr, referring to lawmakers’ calls for “thoughts and prayers” to victims in the wake of a string of shootings earlier this year instead of acting to pass new gun control measures.

The NRA detailed its alleged financial difficulties in a recent lawsuit filed against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and state officials.
The gun-rights group blames its financial hardship on a recent New York regulatory decision that pressured financial institutions to cut ties with the NRA.
In the lawsuit, the NRA claims that the state engaged in a “political and discriminatory campaign” against them that resulted in the loss of businesses relationships “necessary to the survival of the NRA as a charitable organization.”
