Why the antigunners fail

Politicos put on a dog-and-pony show in Union Square yesterday calling for more gun control:

This is why the antigun agenda is mostly dead around the country except, of course, for a few places like New York.

It’s just the same tired, old bunch of professional politicians and activists talking to each other in an echo chamber. They’re not changing anyone’s mind. None of the City politicians are going to support bills like H.R.38 so why hold a rally there? Politicians don’t much care about protests outside their district regardless of the issue. Is Tom Reed going to pull his sponsorship from the bill because Scott Stringer is barking in the streets 400 miles from the district he represents? No.

The reason Union Square was chosen is because gun control advocates can’t generate any significant turnout elsewhere. People simply will not show up. Congressional Republicans need to recognize this and call B.S. on Maloney, Cy Vance, and the rest of the phonies and move the NRA’s agenda through Congress over their objections.

    As the name implies, Union Square is one of the oldest Commie gathering spots in Amerika (NY).
    As far as the Repubs, their legacy will be that the only thing they had no trouble immediately moving forward was to further infringe 2A. They will have raised our taxes and done NOTHING to roll back any of the socialism. They may reshuffle it. A joke on its face.
    Steve Scalice is THE BEST!

    I know about Union Square’s history and I’m sure that played a role in picking the location as opposed to Ruppert Park which is like a 5 minute walk from Maloney’s district office.

    I’m not so sure Congressional Republicans are going to move bump-stock or other antigun bills. NY Senate Republicans will if Cuomo tells them to.
