Welcome to the forum. Did it ever have gas in it? If so, that gas may have gone bad and clogged up the carburetor, while it was sitting around.
Will it start if you use a bit of starting fluid (you can also try carb cleaner, or anything flammable), or spray a little gas, into the carburetor's intake? You'll have to remove the air filter.
If it starts with that, then you know it's a fuel problem. If it won't start with that, then you'll want to check for spark, by removing the spark plug, reconnecting it to the plug wire, and resting it against the engine block. Pull the cord, and look for a bright blue spark.
