An iconic Brooklyn restaurant wont host a gun auction and pro-NRA fund-raiser after all after federal, state and city politicians blasted the event as profoundly disappointing following the Florida school shooting that killed 14 people.
Gargiulos Restaurant in Coney Island tweeted Thursday that it canceled an April 12 fund-raiser for Brooklyns Friends of NRA.
(T)he Russo family of Gargiulos Restaurant has provided a venue for thousands of community events & family celebrations, the tweet said. They thank everyone for their interest in this important dialogue & have decided it best to cancel the event.
The gun group planned an auction and raffle for prizes like a 2018 Gun of the Year set.
