“… “I have long advocated for tougher gun safety laws in New York, and I’m ready to tackle this issue in Congress,” he said. “The first bill I ever voted for as an Assemblymember was the New York SAFE Act, banning assault weapons, expanding background checks, and providing New York the strongest gun laws in the nation. I’ve never been afraid of the NRA, and I wholly reject their warped view of the Second Amendment. I’ll go to Congress ready to stand up for common sense, with a real gun safety agenda for all Americans.” … Buchwald’s proposal would ban assault-style weapons and enact universal background checks. He would also support a national “safe storage” provision that’s now in effect in New York …”
From his 2013 press release:
“Assemblyman David Buchwald helped pass the landmark New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 (NY SAFE ACT) supported by Governor Cuomo. In light of recent acts of gun violence in our state and around the country, this legislation gives New York State the most comprehensive set of gun laws in the nation. “One of my top priorities is ensuring the safety of our families and our community,” said Assemblyman David Buchwald (D-Westchester). “As we’ve seen in recent tragedies, the consequences of dangerous weapons falling into the wrong hands are too great to ignore.” …”
He’s not afraid of NRA because NRA has never put any effort into any race he’s been involved in. Given the number of declared Democrat candidates, knocking him out in a primary for a less 2A-offensive candidate is a possibility.
Bill number for the so-called “Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act” is H.R.5716.

“Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg officially entered the 2020 Democratic race Sunday with a potent asset: The vast trove of email addresses amassed by Moms Demand Action, the nonpartisan gun control advocacy organization hosted under the umbrella of Everytown for Gun Safety, which Bloomberg co-founded and largely finances. The leaders of Moms Demand Action state chapters and local groups received the news from Aimee Tavares, a senior national organizing director for the group, who sent an email roughly three and a half hours after news broke that Bloomberg would formally announce his candidacy. “Given his unique role in launching Everytown, his leadership in advancing the cause of gun safety, and the significant investments he’s made in helping to grow our movement, Mayor Bloomberg’s campaign is temporarily renting access to our list of supporters so they can communicate his plans for achieving our shared goal of a nation free from gun violence,” Tavares wrote …”
So, how has Duh Maya’s gun control advocacy gone over with the Democrat base?
“Michael Bloomberg’s past efforts to support gun control by endorsing Republicans are already backfiring on his presidential bid in Pennsylvania, highlighting how the party-switching former New York City mayor and multibillionaire media mogul could struggle to win over his new party’s partisans … The resistance to Bloomberg in Pennsylvania exemplifies the broader struggle the Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-Independent-turned-Democrat might face as he campaigns for his new party’s nomination. Bloomberg has a long history of backing and funding candidates in both parties, including supporting politicians whom the Democratic base views as out-and-out villains … In the 2018 election cycle, he backed Rep. Peter King, a Long Island Republican infamous in Democratic circles for his anti-Muslim views and record. King has supported some gun control measures, including his introduction of a 2011 bill … that would have barred people from bringing a gun within 1,000 feet of a government official. But King’s decades long career in Congress includes its fair share of votes against tougher gun rules, such as a 1999 effort to close a loophole exempting gun shows from background checks …”
