It looks like New Jersey Democrats are desperate to find political cover for passing gun control since every single time they turn around, it’s people opposed to more gun control who are swarming the State House in Trenton. Having these pro-gun people show up in Trenton doesn’t fit their narrative that everyone in New Jersey clearly wants to regulate the gun culture out of existence, so they have put out a plea to Democratic groups to help them out in pretending that their members are absolutely, without question, motivated primarily by gun control.
One thing that was glaring at this week’s hearing was how vastly gun safety advocates were outnumbered – by about 50 to 1 – by supporters of the NRA and gun manufacturers committed to preventing any new legislation no matter how reasonable. …
The Assembly leadership has asked for a better turnout from the gun violence prevention side for the vote on Thursday.
I love how they basically admit that they aren’t at all motivated on their own concerns to attend, it’s simply to follow the instruction of Democratic lawmakers who need to make it appear as though they have support.
Oh, and if you want to know who else is involved in trying to create a visual of more support for gun control? Obama. Yeah, his team is going to work in every single state – even New Jersey. There is no gun control that’s too extreme for them to push.
