Two civilian disarmament advocacy groups are teaming up to hold what they’re calling the nation’s first ever presidential forum dedicated to tacking the problem of “gun violence” in America. The Giffords gun control operation is teaming up with March for our Lives, the AstroTurf gun-grabbing group that magically sprung up after the Parkland shooting.
They’ll be holding their made-for-the-media dog and pony show with Democrat candidates in October in Las Vegas on the two-year anniversary of the Mandalay Bay shooting.
We’re sure similar aggregations of Democrat candidates will be staged in the coming months to tackle all of the leading causes of death.
Because what Americans really need in order to make an informed decision next fall is to hear Bernie Sanders’ thoughts on how we should deal with the ongoing nephritis plague in this nation. And who doesn’t want to hear Pete Buttigieg’s thoughts on waging the war on accidental injuries?
“Never before has our country had a presidential forum singularly dedicated to the issue of addressing gun violence, but this year, we’re changing that,” Giffords said. “If we’re serious about tackling the biggest problems facing our country, we need serious conversations about solutions.”
David Hogg, co-founder of March for Our Lives, said, “It’s our hope that the candidates come to Las Vegas prepared to discuss bold and holistic plans, like restorative justice, to end gun violence epidemic and its root causes. We have to look at the totality of the problem, not just mass shootings that too often capture the media’s attention, but suicides and other forms of gun violence that go unreported.”
