The antis (more like one antigunner and her media allies) are trying to intimidate Assemblyman Steve Katz over a campaign fundraiser to be held at a training center which features a virtual shooting gallery:
“… Jackie Hilly, executive director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, was sharply critical of the event’s theme. ”It is appalling when people are still suffering,” Hilly said of the event’s proximity to the 12 deaths and nearly 60 injuries from a Colorado movie theater shooting. “I think it is in poor taste while people are out there still having funerals for people who were killed by rapid-fire weapons,” she said. “There would have been better ways for him to arrange a fundraiser and it is his responsibility to know how his fundraisers are promoted.” …”
They’re trying to intimidate him and Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos who will be guest speaker. They want to shut Katz up and shame Skelos into allowing the microstamping bill to come up in the Senate during a special session later this year.
The appropriate thing to do in this situation is to tell the Journal News (which has a long history of antigun activism) and Jackie Hilly to go fuck themselves. Unfortunately, I think Steve is too polite to do that so the next best thing is to just ignore them. Nobody in the district is clamoring for more gun control.
