“When I launched Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, I understood I would encounter opposition from those who took issue with my view – the same held by most gun owners – that firearm safety and responsibility go hand-in-hand with our Second Amendment rights,” Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America jefe Shannon Watts writes at msnbc.com. Clearly Ms. Watts would have you – well, someone – believe that people who oppose her civilian disarmament agenda don’t believe in firearm safety and responsibility. Question . . .
How many American gun owners has MDA trained in safe gun handling? How many Americans has her gun control org instructed in the proper, legal use of firearms for self-defense? None. Which organization has trained millions of Americans how and when to keep and bear arms safely and responsibly, and defend innocent life through force of arms? The NRA.
There has been no response from the NRA leadership to any of these events. They aren’t telling their members and allies to cool it – they’re staying out of the fight. By turning a blind eye, they’re allowing these events to continue, and tacitly endorsing this cruel behavior.
Just as MDA reins in anti-gunners who’ve issued death threats against NRA jefe Wayne LaPierre. Or not. Still, what do you expect from an anti-gun group that relies on lies, mischaracterizations and obfuscation to justify its work towards disarming law-abiding Americans?
When it comes to protecting our children, our families and our communities from gun violence – moms will never give up.
True. Which is why so many American moms and dads exercise their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.
As for Watts’ contention that MDA takes the high road while the pro-gun side wallows in the mire, a brief scan of the comments underneath her msnbc article is all you need to judge the accuracy of that assertion. I’ll leave you with this bit of commentator doggrel aimed at gun owners:
Grow some balls and then maybe you can grow a brain and get off the paranoia train.
