Hundreds of demonstrators are expected to march across the Brooklyn Bridge to call for tougher gun control laws.
Saturday's demonstration, which comes after a wave of mass shootings across the US, is being underwritten by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of the nation's most visible gun control advocates.
The marchers who will include relatives of some of those slain in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting will gather in downtown Brooklyn and then march across the bridge to City Hall. They will then hold a demonstration outside the building's gates and chant "Not one more," the rallying cry uttered by Richard Martinez, whose son Christopher was shot to death in Santa Barbara, California, last month, according to organizers.

how much is this stunt going to cost ?
I had a neighbor as a kid who jumped off that bridge and survived. Wonder if any of these will try the same.
Astroturf ‘grassroots’. All hat and no cattle.......it’s how the Dems roll!
“Hundreds” in NYC does not equal “Massive.”
Plus, it is NYC. What would one expect? The city’s leaders are broadly anti-gun, anti-constitution, especially the resident socialist mayor.
Gotta love the stupid names of Bloomberg’s “grass roots” orgs
In the first place, ‘hundreds’ is not ‘massive’.
In the second place, why do they demonstrate in a city where guns are illegal?
I’d much rather confront them on my home ground.
why can’t they do like the Buddhist monks did in Vietnam and protest by burning themselves to death...would show more conviction of beliefs.
Bloomberg to set the example.
No thanks. Too much risk of the government classifying whatever they find threatening to their desire to expand their power as "crazy."
Please to not insult our dear Fascist Bloomberg.
Not his fault he is a self-centered, “money gives me brains”, wannabe Pol Pot type tyrant.
Sun spots Bushes fault too.
(need to fart...also Bush’es fault)
Zombies are on the move
I’ve been thinking about the problem of mentally ill people with guns.
Maybe a small ankle bracelet that works in conjunction with a sensor near the cash register in gun shops. Something very short range (6 to 10 feet maybe) Just to alert the cashier.
Obviously it wouldn’t solve the whole problem since many mentally ill people kill with means other than guns or they don’t always buy from gun stores.
As far as felons are concerned, Keep truly dangerous felons locked up.
They have more people waiting in line for iPods.
But way to tell some drudged-up loon with a mental illness (which all of those shooters seem to be), where a huge mass of unarmed people are going to be.
Where a million 2nd Amendment folks should be waiting for them.
maybe some will jump, others will naturally follow, and thin the herd
Why don’t we really see how brave they are when the bridge is declared a no-gun zone.
No Bloomberg no Deblasio...guess it’s not REALLY all that important to them, besides they have a few hundred sheep to do it for em, and yes pimp the Hollywood morons too.
Must be anticlimactic though once they reach...city hall?
what a joke
“How ‘bout we do a better check for crazy”
Communists would like that. They’re fond of declaring their opponents “crazy” and incarcerating them in mental hospitals. Long history of it; notice that our own Leftists have been heading in the same direction.
That million left the state.
