LI Congressional delegation’s gun control priority

I have a pretty good idea what the Long Island Congressional representatives gun control agenda will be.

First, Newsday reports:

“… Suozzi and Rice also said they will push for comprehensive immigration changes, including legalizing “Dreamers” brought here illegally as children, and gun safety legislation, such as tightening background checks, and campaign finance and voting bills …”

Second, Politico reports:

House Democrats are planning to move several high-profile bills to combat gun violence soon after they take power in January … With backing from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and key chairmen, Democrats will move to require federal background checks on all gun sales … Rep. Mike Thompson of California … said he will introduce the universal background checks bill early next year. Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), who has co-authored background-checks bills with Thompson in the past, has told reporters he will back this latest effort as well …”

With the collapse of the Nassau GOP machine RINO King should switch parties.

Fortunately the fundamentals of gun control have not changed since the election.  It still isn’t popular no matter how the media tries to spin it and there isn’t a legitimate grassroots pushing for it.

The Daily News refuses to accept this:

“… smart money says that even a House-passed bill will be dead on arrival in the Republican-led Senate. Why?”

Because your editors are out of touch with reality.

Don’t expect Minority Leader Schumer to go all out for this proposal either.
