Brady Campaign Shames Schumer Into More Anti-Gun Action

posted on May 18, 2016

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., under pressure from the Brady Campaign, has announced—surprise!—yet another expanded background check bill that will only affect law-abiding gun owners. The legislation was introduced seemingly just to placate the gun-control group, which flooded the senator’s office with a sea of calls on Monday. 

Brady Campaign supporters were upset that Schumer had yet to follow through on his November promise to bring the bill back to the Senate floor. “We need your help, we are going to win,” he rallied supporters at the time. 

But his lack of action since apparently didn’t sit well with the rabid activists, who feel like any bill is better than no bill—effectiveness be damned. “He made a promise,” lamented Brady spokesman Brendan Kelly. 

So now—1,000 phone calls later—thanks to a senator trying to save face, we have a new piece of ineffective legislation that’s hopefully doomed to fail. Politics at its finest, indeed.
