As of a couple of days ago most if not all of the pro-gun sense Everytown pages have been shut down. All of the administrators and content creators of the page have been hit with 3-day suspensions on their Facebook accounts. Unfortunately, despite many of our administrators proactively requesting deletion of their pages, they were in fact not deleted and they were hit with 3 day suspensions as well. We fully understood that the copyright applications had been sent in and were expecting the removal to happen at some point. We have no problem with this. As part of the bigger picture…
we wanted to call out Moms Demand Action/MAIG/Everytown on their hypocrisy. Maintaining an echo chamber, devoid of logical, much less civil discourse on the issues we face, only results in division and anger. They don’t make any reasonable attempt to address the issues we face as a nation. Regardless of your stance on the Second Amendment, the inability to properly debate and discuss potential legislation only proves to me that the civilian disarmament machine has no basis in reality. Rather than stand up for their beliefs and defend them, they ban and remove anything that doesn’t fall in line with their dogma.
For the various groups we work in, we strive to elicit real discussion on the issues we are facing. We delve into the laws, and what they really mean. Simply screaming “something must be done!” without any thought or deliberation accomplishes nothing and proves again that they in no way support the Second Amendment…or even the First for that matter. Their false claims of victory from Starbucks, Facebook, and Jack in the Box, prove my point without the need to point fingers. So I cordially invite Mrs. Watts to a debate of the issues. Until now she has refused, but we’re sincere and the door is always open on our end.
