Following Defeat in the Senate Schumer Holds Anti Gun Rally in NY
NY Senator Charles Schumer, following a defeat in the Senate of gun control legislation that he helped author, MC’ed an anti gun rally in Midtown NYC according to NY1.com.
Schumer was flanked by shooting victims and families as he spoke.
“We have foot soldiers everywhere answering the foot soldiers of the NRA and the gun owners of America, and I am telling you, we are going to win this fight a lot sooner than you think,” Schumer said.
Schumer also touted the 90% of Americans want stricter background checks statistic, although he seemed to ignore the fact that only 4% of Americans think that gun control is an important issue which needs to be addressed.
