Clobbered By Gun Owners On Election Day, Senate Democrats Promote Anti-Gun Chuck Schumer To Lead Them

posted on November 17, 2016

Mainstream media isn’t the only institution in denial over the results of Trump’s election last week. On Wednesday, Senate Democrats promoted one of their most committed anti-gun advocates to be the minority leader.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., has been one of the most virulent promoters of gun control for decades, stretching back to his tenure in the House. He led the fight to pass Bill Clinton’s “assault weapon” ban, as well as the failed struggle to reauthorize it; he also led fights to expand record-keeping of gun owners, to ban magazines containing more than 10 rounds, to expand background checks, and to allow governments and crime victims to sue gun manufacturers into bankruptcy. 

Coming the day after Pew Research announced that an overwhelming 69 percent of Trump supporters also described themselves as NRA supporters (vs. 8 percent of Clinton supporters), Schumer’s promotion signals the intention of Democrats to double down on their disastrous election bet against firearm freedoms—placing them on a collision course with President-elect Donald Trump and pro-gun majorities in both houses.
