I had the picture above taken, and wrote the story about it a month ago. It seems to have hit a nerve, because Moms Demand Action stole the picture and tried to use it to further their propaganda. It is one of the reasons that I copywrite these articles and allow for use *if the attribution line is included*. MDA didn’t include the attribution line, and now their use of the picture is backfiring on them (so to speak) . . .
Brandon at concealednation.org noticed the Moms’ post on their Facebook page.
As we start reading through the posted comments, we quickly realize that some MDA followers seem quite violent. These aren’t things that we would ever promote, and find it insanely ironic that a follower of an organization such as MDA would promote such violent acts.
It’s interesting to find that there are people who want to kill me, simply for exercising my First and Second Amendment constitutional rights. Linda Andrew Hunsicker wrote:
“If I see a guy carrying a big gun like this while I’m shoping, I have to assume he’s a bad guy and shoot him. It doesn’t make sense to wait to see if he shoots someone else first. He’s got a gun in Kroger, I feel threatened, so it’s my duty to shoot him first.”

“Someones carrying a gun, and they’re with their children, and they see a man walk into a Starbucks with a rifle on his shoulder. What would stop them from blowing your client away?
Well, the fact that the law prohibits that unless there is an imminent risk of deadly physical force, or….
Mark Curtis, Anchor 12News:
You don’t think that a man carrying a rifle in a Starbucks, after what we have seen in Aurora, Colorado, would be enough reason for someone that is carrying a gun to think that they are in imminent danger?
It appears that Linda Andrew Hunsicker has expanded the “big gun” category that you can be sumarily executed for, to include such mundane handguns as a GLOCK 17. Next people will be wanting to kill their fellow man because they drive an SUV, or maybe because their house is bigger than average.
It would not be the first time.
