I never claimed it was the sole reason; I pointed out that a significant portion of the assembly appropriations committee analysis of opposition/issues centered on StopSB249.org and our arguments.
I don't mean to be snide, but frankly it's the committee's own records vs. your conjecture.
We killed it completely this year, and are ready to fight any future attempts to resurrect it. If you'd like to be a part of that effort, please follow the link in my signature and sign upfor CGF grassroots efforts. I'll put you to good use.
We made a popular gun control bill politically toxic enough a Democrat committee chair killed it without a hearing. Call that what you will, but the common word is "winning".
Brandon, help me out here....wasn't there an interview or statement from Mike Gatto re SB249/CGF/et al?

Sure they're afraid of the gun lobby, but only as an irritating component of their constituency. Not necessarily a pivotal one all the time, and not even where it concerns gun legislation only, 'cause they been a 'passin' that all the time.
