No, the New York Daily News didn’t call Senator Chuck Schumer’s pro-gun control rally a damp squib. Far from it. “About 100 people gathered outside Schumer’s Manhattan office to praise his work cracking down on guns and vowed to push on despite the defeat of a measure to expand background checks for gun purchases.” But a damp squib it was—especially compared to the Empire State’s pro-gun rallies. “About” 100 people? That’s all a United States Senator can organize in the wake of his colleagues’ rejection of civilian disarmament, despite the mainstream media’s sycophantic support? Yup. And yet the press continues to cheerlead for Schumer and friends, who are sounding increasingly delusional. “I’ve been fighting for gun safety for 25 years,” Schumer told the assembled “throng”. “This is the first time we have a crowd on our side . . . We are aroused, we are fighting, and we’re not going to stop until we win.” That would be never, one hopes.
