Linda Stasi in the New York Daily News reports on an April Fools’ Day gun rally.

Pro-gun, red-blooded and beige-haired 110% Americans like Donald Trump gathered together on April (big) Fools’ Day to behave as un-American as they could, er, muster, at an anti-SAFE gun law rally in Albany. The law, favored by 63 percent of New Yorkers, limits high-capacity magazines and requires background checks, among other restrictions.

The protest rally had been predicted to be and was so filled with nut jobs that even Tom King, head of the state gun PAC, the Rifle & Pistol Association, had planned to avoid it like Tea Partiers avoid a Rosie O’Donnell gay cruise. He was probably afraid he’d get shot…

He relented and showed, but didn’t speak. And as feared, the protesters behaved so moronically that they ended up not just not making their point but missing the point completely…

Some, like Melbourne Sann, who was dressed in the Revolutionary War uniform he probably wears as a weekend re-enactor, strung up a blow-up doll of Gov. Cuomo in effigy. He proceeded to hit blow-up Andrew with a fake rifle, explaining — inexplicably — that he was doing this “before we have to come down here with regular weapons.” Oh.
