People, for example, can be sure that a Democrat majority partnered with a Biden presidency will clear a path for gun control — gun bans, a ban on private firearm transfers, magazine capacity limits, and potentially even a firearm confiscation initiative.
While it is no secret that Schumer and his colleagues on the Left have been avid proponents of gun control, the New Yorker’s recent story about Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s declining health also conveniently exposed the degree to which the gun control lobby has already embedded itself among Senate Democrats.
In the story, reporter Jane Mayer’s anonymous sources recall that Minority Leader Schumer was concerned enough about Feinstein’s mental acuity and her ability to manage Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearing that he “embedded” a trusted staffer into the Senate Judiciary Committee to “make sure the hearings didn’t go off the rails.” The staffer he chose for this task was Max Young, unsurprisingly a former Schumer staffer, but shockingly the current chief public affairs officer for gun control groups Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.
