TTAG reader mister3D sent us this email blast from MoveOn.org (who somehow forgot to use the words “Gun Safety” in their anti-gun rights agitprop):
Dear MoveOn member,
We’ve developed a breakthrough strategy to destroy the National Rifle Association’s credibility in Washington: gun owners committed to fighting for gun control. You see, the truth is . . .
that only a tiny minority of gun owners actually belong to the NRA—and most of them don’t even agree with it. If the silent majority of gun owners who support gun control speak out, they’ll blow the NRA’s cover, so we can finally take action to prevent gun violence and save lives—including by helping President Obama issue an executive order this month to close the background check loophole.
Here’s our plan: After the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon last month, MoveOn launched Gun Owners for Gun Control, which now has 32,260 members. Next week, we’re bringing 15 of them—thoughtful, experienced, and responsible gun owners, including former NRA members—to Washington, D.C., for meetings with the White House, members of Congress, and the media.
But we still need to raise the money to cover the cost of the gun owner delegation, to take the message they deliver in D.C. and get it out across the country, and then to continue organizing this incredibly powerful group of MoveOn members. Can you chip in $3 to help responsible gun owners stand up to the NRA?
