Earlier today, we reported on the story of a (white) man who tackled a (black) CHL holder after it was noticed that the CHL holder was actually carrying a gun. Shannon Watts apparently saw the story as well, and her response is perfectly in line with what we’re used to seeing from her and the Moms. Namely, it betrays an utter lack of respect for gun owners even as human beings, and a burning desire to do harm to those who avail themselves of their Second Amendment rights . . .
In the story, the man who tackled the CHL holder was arrested for assault. Which is 100% legal and perfectly appropriate — the CHL holder had done nothing wrong, and the attack was completely unprovoked. But Shannon Watts sees things differently. According to Shannon Watts, she apparently believes that this elderly black man should have been beaten without consequence merely because he was following the law and carrying a firearm. All she cares about is that a man with a gun was tackled, and she is apparently incensed that the guy with a gun wasn’t arrested. “Because America.”
Shannon Watts in this one tweet is promoting the beating of a law abiding black man.
Michael Bloomberg and his employees in Moms Demand Action aren’t just preaching “gun sense,” they are preaching hatred and violence. Their rhetoric promotes the idea that gun owners aren’t human, and that they are a disease that needs to be eradicated. Their words have real consequences, and what we see here today is proof that Shannon Watts and Michael Bloomberg simply don’t care. They want gun owners to be beaten, killed, and otherwise eliminated from society. And they don’t care about the human cost.
