New Yorkers for Gun Safety closes down

The election committee New Yorkers for Gun Safety appears to be kaput. What little money remained in the PAC was transferred to the State Democratic Committee.

It was never a real grassroots organization.  It was created by Governor Cuomo under the NYSDC to push the SAFE Act.  They kept the account open for some reason since ’13 and now it has a $0.00 balance.

It can be looked at as both a success and failure.  It was successful in pushing SAFE, but it was a failure in generating any sort of residuals.  Gun control is less popular now than 5 years ago and Cuomo’s standing as a national leader on the issue only hurt him.

Antigun advocates are unlikely to learn anything from this.
