A Potentially explosive confrontation over Gov. Cuomoís tough new gun law was avoided over the weekend as 1199 SEIU, the hospital workers union, abruptly canceled a Thursday rally designed to challenge some 10,000 opponents of the governorís measure, The Post has learned.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Rent-a-mob confrontation is little barry bastard boy’s style, exploiting blacks and Hispanics in the thugery unions like SEIU. Little bastard boy isn’t a leader, he’s a ‘community organizer’, IOW he’s a damned ‘brownshirts’ agitator. Mob rule is the only thing little bastard boy and his thugocracy can embrace.
A lot of NY’ers are really fed up w this crap, myself included.
Too bad we are outnumbered by the commies
Oh, the union wasn't planning on being peaceful. That could be a problem if shoving and punching broke out.
So, our side caved in because Cuomo rented some thugs? That means Cuomo won while hardly trying. I don’t want to hear about “surrender monkeys” when we quit in the face of threats.
From the article: 1199 SEIU, the hospital workers union, abruptly canceled a Thursday rally designed to challenge some 10,000 opponents of the governors measure
I hope you’re right. The initial headline sounded like the SEIU thugs canceled their rumble AFTER the gun rights group canceled theirs, saying the real potential for violence would have been a nearly all white anti-SAFE Act crowd versus an all minority SEIU rentamob.
Hope Generalissimo Cuomo didn’t just score an easy victory.
TRANSLATION: They were recruiting an embarrassingly small number of paid protesters.
last sentence says”informed sources” say the pros cancelled earlier
Are you coming to the rally and making appointments with your Assmemblyman and Senator? I’ll be there on Thursday.
Supposedly a Senator who voted for the “Safe” Act is sponsoring a bill to totally repeal it.
“and knowledgeable insiders said the pro-gun law rally was canceled.”<p.They caved - that’s why the thugs were called off - not needed anymore..
>>>>TRANSLATION: They were recruiting an embarrassingly small number of paid protesters.<<<
Exactly. The SEIU was offering free bus trips, including free breakfast and lunch for their astroturf protestors.
Pro 2nd Amendment citizens from all over New York State are paying their own money and taking time off from actual jobs to go there.
I have two court appearances that day. I plan on writing my reps in solidairty with the protest. F these politicians, all of them.

The “PRO GUN LAW RALLY” is cancelled. The ORIGINAL “ANTI NEW YORK GUN LAW, PRO SECOND AMENDMENT RALLY” is going on as scheduled, the way I read it. It is confusing and possibly purposely.
and knowledgeable insiders said the pro-gun law rally was canceled
Thanks, missed it in the article.
Right. Read it again. Slowly.
