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