And how many gun stores are there in gun-haven Burbank?

With not a peep about them.

An estimated 4,000 people took to the Chandler Bikeway in Burbank on Saturday morning demanding an end to mass shootings and calling on legislators to enact stricter gun-control laws.

The local March for Our Lives rally saw scores of people walk from the Mariposa Street portion of the path to Buena Vista Street and back again, carrying banners and homemade signs adorned with messages like “Disarm Hate,” “Arm teachers with resources not guns” and “Yes, guns kill.” Many in the crowd chanted, “The NRA has got to go,” while passing motorists honked their horns in solidarity with the march.

Several speakers at the march, including Burbank City Councilwoman Sharon Springer, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) and state Assemblywoman Laura Friedman (D-Glendale), called on those in attendance to place pressure on lawmakers to stand up to the National Rifle Assn. and pass stricter gun-control legislation.

A quick trip down the block from Chandler could have put this same crowd in front of several of those devilish outfits. What a good photo op that would have been, and an effective point to make.

But shhhhh!

Don’t want to make too many waves. Just the easy stuff.

    Wonderful to see such a healthy turn out.
    Smart to hold the event at THAT part of the bike path.
    If it was West near Hollywood Way, all those speeches would have had to compete with the increasing number of flights and more intrusive noise from the lower take off altitudes.

      (But Mayor Rogers tells us that these wacky airport critics are lying about all the new noise and commotion!)

        Just wait till the new airport terminal is online. They are not going to spend over $400 million and not want to make their money back ( and more) with more flight operations in and out.

        And four out of our five council members at that time couldn’t have their flags high enough for this insanity. Does anyone know anyone who avoids Burbank airport now and would rather go out of LAX?

          The crazy wing nut is rogers. I will never call that creep mayor. I wonder if he will join golonski in San Clemente when his time as mayor is up.
