“… Gloria Cruz has been a tireless crusader against guns … Cruz gave up her position with New Yorkers Against Gun Violence last year after the group ran out of funding …”
That explains why they weren’t getting anywhere with their lobbying efforts. What it doesn’t do is help to explain what Gov. Cuomo was thinking when he pushed SAFE? If the gun control movement is so unpopular that they can’t find funding in New York City then what exactly did Cuomo think he was going to get in return for reviving a largely dead issue?
