Granted IMHO Chuck Schumer is more of a publicity hound than someone who cares about his constituents. We all know that the most dangerous place in the world is between Chuck Schumer and a camera.  But why is he working with comedian Amy Schumer on Guns?

I understand that she has a following more than 2 million twitter followers, and nearly as many on Facebook and Instagram. But what does she know about guns besides the progressive propaganda that say firearms are bad.  Of course what does Senator Schumer know about firearms?

“Schumer & Schumer” — as the cousins whimsically dub themselves — urged lawmakers to back a proposed gun control bill sponsored by the New York Democrat.

It would close the loophole allowing weapons to be sold without background checks at gun shows and online; fill gaps in the background check system itself; and stop arms trafficking of weapons across state lines.

In New York City, 85 percent of guns used in crimes come from out of state, the senator said.

Yep and we all know that a criminal is going to hear about that law and cease their interstate commerce.  They are criminals for Pete’s sake.  This suggestion is going to accomplish little except infringe on law-abiding gun owners.  Before adding more law why not start by enforcing the laws that are already there?

The two Schumers want Americans to call, write, tweet, post on Facebook and march to stop gun violence. They say that could create a groundswell forcing a vote early next year.

On Sunday, Amy Schumer introduced the hashtag #AimingForChange to give people a voice across social media.

“Live from New York: We’re aiming for a change,” the senator added, playing on words that kick off television’s “Saturday Night Live,” recently hosted by Amy Schumer.

Granted, after one thinks about it they aren’t such an unlikely pair, she’s a comedian who tells jokes about vaginas; he’s a dickhead who tells lies about conservatives.

But what kind of consulting did they do before they exposed Chuck’s ideas to the press?  Who else did Chuck talk to? Did he (God-Forbid) talk to the NRA? After all they may have some great ideas if he asked. Instead he treats them like enemies.

I get it, Amy Schumer is funny, and she is a cousin.  But you know what? My brother Paul is very funny (he tells fart jokes instead of Amy’s vagina Jokes), and a  brother is closer than a cousin.  But I don’t call him up and ask him to help me write, why the heck is Sen. Schumer inviting a comedian to help him with gun control.

There could be only one reason.  Chuck doesn’t give a damn about finding a solution that really works—if Chuck cared he would have consulted with gun organizations to work out a solution. Instead he invited Cousin Amy so he can grandstand in front of the cameras and maybe hear a few raunchy jokes.  What a lousy self-absorbed public servant.
