New Yorkers Against Gun Violence is in Albany today. Reports indicate they have nowhere close to the numbers we turned out back in January.
I don’t know if any of the antigun bills will be brought up in the Assembly today, tomorrow or at all. They’re not following their usual pattern. They go into session at 3:30pm and it’s broadcast live off their website.
We’ve had Gun Control Day in the state legislature for years. Now the idea is spreading outside New York.
