Sen. Schumer: 'Militant People' Have Taken Over The NRA

“When I was in summer camp, I took NRA sharp shooter lessons–I have a merit badge.  It used to be like the AAA, it was helpful with safety and insurance.  Twenty years ago everyone [supported gun control] because crime was rampant. The broad middle was for gun control, so that was enough to counter the NRA.  Now, when I go to street fairs, even on Long Island, and I’ll see a thousand people, two or three people will say ‘I don’t like you, you wrote the Brady Bill,’ no one will say ‘I support gun control.  There was nobody but the NRA out there and they became more powerful and more militant. But with all these shootings, the broad middle may rise up again.”
