Despite producing a video of orange wearing anti-gunners before the Gun Violence Action Day, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America’s GVAD appears to have been yet another a damp squib. There are plenty of photos of sanctimonious celebrities wearing orange circulating on Twitter and Facebook. Barack Obama tweeted his support (though failing to sport MDA’s gang colors). But I can’t find a plethora of pics of “ordinary folks” wearing orange to mark GVAD and “start a national conversation on guns.” Group shots? Not a lot. Well there is this . . .
INSERT BASEBALL JOKE HERE. Here’s the only other large assembly of [professional] orange-wearing GVAD supporters I could find.
“Bipartisan Report @Bipartisanism 18h18 hours ago
All @HouseDemocrats are #WearingOrange because one of Americas political parties cares about children being killed.”
Again, most of the pro-gun control orange-infused images swirling around the ‘Net show famous folk. (Or infamous anti-gunners like the head of MDA, Shannon Watts.) And there was plenty of blow-back from the pro-gun side: images of prisoners wearing orange, hunters wearing orange and the orange-clad Christians being beheaded by ISIS on the beach.
I reckon GVAD was an epic fail, in its own small way. Did you see anyone wearing orange for GVAD?
