CSGV published a link on their FaceBook group to a story on gay marriage which contains quotes from Senator Roy McDonald where he says he’s trying to do the right thing on the issue and not play politics.
The problem (for the antis) is that unlike supporters of so-called gay marriage, the antigunners don’t actually have any sort of organized grassroots constituency as evidenced by the fact they can not get any people to show up in Albany to lobby for their cause and have to resort to bringing a couple of bus loads of high schools kids up from NYC. Below is a picture of their group in The Well of the LOB during their lobby day back in April.
This is lack of public support is why the antis are having ever increasing difficulty in moving their agenda through the state legislature.
Absolutely shameless. If CSGV, Brady, etc. really cared about Giffords then why didn’t they endorse her all those times she was running for re-election? Where was all their compassion and concern for her before she became a fundraising tool for them?
“… This should be an easy vote. Instead, however, lobbyists for the gun industry work the halls of Albany, making specious arguments driven more by a kneejerk opposition to any gun-related legislation rather than by their desire to protect legal gun ownership …”
If it is such an easy vote then why did Shelly have so much trouble getting it to the floor in the Assembly? He’s been losing votes every time it comes up. He had to strong arm his caucus this time to get 77 Yeas and didn’t even hold the NYC Democrats together.
“Alec Baldwin is mulling a run for mayor of New York City now that kinky Congressman Anthony Weiner appears to have sexted himself out of the 2013 race. The “30 Rock” star, who has long talked about running for political office, believes Weinergate has shaken up the field of candidates enough that he might have a chance to win, a friend of the actor told The Daily …”
Mayor Bloomberg and MAIG are promoting this video through their Fix Gun Checks website which they claim shows an al Qaeda operative encouraging American Muslims to take advantage of our “easily obtainable” firearms and start killing people.
I call fraud on this. This had to have been made up either by MAIG, Brady, CSGV or some other gun grabber with an agenda. It’s got all their talking points and ends with the guy smirking at the end of the clip.
