New York Senator Chuck Schumer, the same guy who arrogantly smirked at a massacre survivor testifying against gun control in front of Congress 20 years ago, is asking gun retailers to stop selling legal firearms until Congress can come up with something to limit the purchase of....legal firearms.
Schumer on Sunday released a letter he sent to major retailers asking for a voluntary moratorium.
The New York Democrat says consumer demand for guns has gone up in the weeks since the December mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.
Schumer says Congress is debating the issue, and if measures get passed that limit these type of weapons, it won't help if more of them have recently been sold.
A question for Schumer is this: what defines "assault style" weapons. Should retailers suspend all gun sales? Sale of semi-automatic firearms? He purposely makes broad statements in order to gain more control over more firearms down the road.
