Why Republicans are super-minority in the state

Why are New York Republicans super-minority in both chambers of the state legislature and hold no statewide office?

Because this is what that have passing for “leadership”:



No standing up for 2A. No mention of how all the gun control laws which many of them voted FOR empowered thugs like this.

Schumer leads call to ban ‘ghost guns’

This isn’t leadership either. It’s just lame. The antis are failing around, desperate to pass anything, to maintain an illusion of relevance.

That’s not leadership

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

President Joe Biden said he plans to take aggressive action to implement new gun-control measures through both executive orders and by proposing legislation on Thursday. When asked whether he plans to unilaterally enact new restrictions on homemade firearms, provide funding for state and local gun-control efforts, or propose legislation making gun manufacturers liable for criminal misuse of their products, Biden said he does. “All the above,” he said. “It’s a matter of timing.” …”

That’s not leadership.

A real leader defines his agenda with plans to move forward and implement it.

President Houseplant clearly doesn’t have much faith either in the agenda and/or his ability to get it done (which is a good thing.)
