Victim’s Sister to Everytown: “Only thing that would have saved her is a gun”

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 2.38.10 PM

“…I don’t want (Everytown) to take what happened with my sister and use it to make more victims because that’s exactly what they’re gonna do. When they push for more gun laws, they’re creating a society of victims.” That’s the considered opinion of Jennie Cochran, sister to Jessie Doyle Cavett who was murdered by her estranged husband in October. Cochran was approached by an Everytown for Gun Safety minion in hopes of using her sister’s story to further the civilian disarmament cause. But Ms. Cochran wasn’t having any of that, and rebuffed Everytown’s request with extreme prejudice. Click the photo above to view the entire Fox News interview.  [h/t Roscoe]

    meanwhile, in suburban Indianapolis, Shannon’s head just exploded

      Figuratively, of course.

      I have to say, though, this story Made. My. Day.

      1. avatar Roscoe says:


        …for more complete details of the tragedy, and the full discussion Jennie Cochran had with “Everytown” “Outreach Adviser” Ann Wright. Interesting conversation.

        Ann Wright would actually look good with a carbine or pistol in her hands. If she were open minded enough to try it out with a competent shooter, she might find she’d enjoy a shooting sports outing, and that she had more in common with some of the participants than not. Certainly wouldn’t hurt her to check it out.

    I would’ve taken Everytown up on their offer and waited until they put me in front of a podium and narrow-lensed news cameras to let them know that they’re wrong.

    1. avatar WRH says:

      That’s the way I’d play it too… use their soapbox against them.

    2. avatar Scrubula says:

      Keep in mind she is grieving the death of her sister.

      It’s not classy for any organization to dance around bloodshed. It would be hilarious for someone to do just that but in reality they aren’t contacting anyone who isn’t in a state of poor judgement due to emotional distress.

  3. avatar Another Robert says:

    Just as well this way I think, if she tried that at an MDA event Shannon’s goons would probably hustle her off and put her in a straitjacket.

    1. avatar Jeff in CO says:

      Nah, Shannon’s armed bodyguards would just prone her out at gunpoint saying she was a “threat to society.”

  4. avatar Ray Ficara says:

    Shannon the panderer must’ve blown a gasket.


    1. avatar pyratemime says:

      Shannon probably couldn’t tell you the name of this woman or her sister either 5 minutes before or 5 minutes after a Big Daddy Bloomie funded speaking engagement. She doesn’t care about either and would never waste the time or energy to learn the stories or names of the little people she try’s to exploit. From her POV both of them and every other person killed by or related to those killed by are part of the “useful idiots” who will eventually be grist for the mill.

      1. avatar Indiana Tom says:

        Nice post and very true. Shannon and Bloomie don’t give a crap about the victims, just their end goal of greater power over the masses.

  5. avatar Jon says:

    “Well, we’re going to run with the story anyway” Yeah, after she specifically told them she didn’t want her sister to be used in a story, going ahead with it is basically saying “Well, f**k you, we don’t really care what you think anyway!”

    Those disrespectful sh**s.

    1. avatar Another Robert says:

      Didn’t see where they said they would run with it.

  6. avatar Sammy says:

    She’s my gun hero of the month.

  7. avatar ValleyForge77 says:

    Talk about Kryponite. What could MDA/MAIG (whatever they call themselves these days) possibly say in rebuttal? This is as damning to their ’cause’ as anything I’ve seen. It completely exposes their sham as the misled fiction that it is. If I were an MDA goon, I’d have to seriously reconsider my perspective on the issue after getting a dose of that.

  8. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    More and more people are waking up and seeing the plain truth. And that is why gun grabbers are losing.

    Personally, I attribute almost all of the credit the Internet. It has enabled us to disseminate the truth and positive stories that the legacy mainstream media would NEVER have divulged.

  9. avatar Tex300BLK says:

    Everytown will undoubtedly be more carefully now in looking for victims to use. Great job for this woman saying it like it is and doing so effectively and calling them on their charade. Unfortunately next time they try and use a victim for their cause they will probably pre screen their answers before going live.

  10. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Can’t getmore evil than MDA. The POTG should reach out to this poor grieving sister.

  11. avatar Fuque says:

    Everytown is Ranked right up there with Lawyers lurking around the Emergency room looking for clients.

  12. avatar Chip Bennett says:

    One: good on her for maintaining truth and common sense through tragedy.

    Two: MDA/Everytown are a bunch of heartless bastards for trying to dance in the blood of this woman’s sister, for political purposes.

    Bravo. A little common sense. Increasingly rare. Strong woman. Will be in my thoughts etc.
