Why are gun control advocates so excited about Vivek Murthy's confirmation when he promised that he wouldn't push gun control?

Gun control groups are excited about Vivek Murthy's confirmation's, but before his confirmation his supporters were pointing to his promise not "use the Surgeon General's office as a bully pulpit for gun control," and instead would make his top priority "obesity prevention."  So why should the gun control groups be so excited? Was it because he didn't mean his promise to the Senate?

Sure, because it's a real political shot heard 'round the world and a real surprise that a Democrat-run Senate approves someone nominated by a Democrat President.

I am sure the good doctor is just as truthful as the President that nominated him. What does that tell you?

Because they're politicians. Promise given just verbally - is not actually given. So you could expect his actions in this way.
