Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDA) is nothing if not quick. Even before the nature of last night’s suicide-by-cop incident in Paramus NJ was revealed, the anti-gun group’s Facebook page proclaimed “ANOTHER DAY IN AMERICA, ANOTHER MASS SHOOTING THREAT.” Threat. Cute. To which they added . . .
Last night it was Paramus, but tomorrow it may be your town, your mall, your school, your college campus. Just last week there were three mass shootings America, in addition to the tragic murder of a TSA agent at LAX. Tell your members of Congress NOW that moms want new and stronger gun laws.
Notice that MDA didn’t call for civilian disarmament. Make no mistake: that’s their endgame. Not “universal background checks.” Universal civilian disarmament. Check out this comment underneath the post . . .
Kathleen Matthews NRA should be disbanded and now. Guns should be turned into the local police authority, this way you will clean up America and people will be free to walk into a mall school, cinema, and not fear for their lives.
Ms. Matthews’ comment was deleted minutes after it appeared. Now why is that? Because MDA doesn’t agree with her call for the end of the NRA and civilian disarmament or because it does? I’m thinking the latter.
Founder Shannon Watts knows that demand-a-ban action would label her organization “extremist.” That’s OK indeed desirable for the NRA, references to which flow through the comments section like toxic chemicals dumped into a polluted stream (e.g., Victoria Snyder‘s “The nuts, have been given permission by the NRA, the politician and talk radio.”) But not for Mommie dearest.
We are educating, motivating, and mobilizing moms and families to take action that will result in stronger laws and policies to save lives.
Vague much? While we know how MDA feels about “assault rifles” has anyone ever asked Shannon if she favors a handgun ban for Americans (excluding police)? Of course not. As long as MDA demands “Gun Sense in America”—a tagline added after Ms. Watts dumped the One Million Moms for Gun Control moniker—the mainstream media will pick up whatever they’re putting down.
Note: the MSM does not want to look at the woman behind that curtain. They know well enough that they’ll find a goose-stepping gun grabber. Meanwhile, it’s clear that Shannon and her Facebook monitoring minions are determined that we never find out MDA’s real agenda. Until we do.
