Everytown for Gun Safety and its wholly owned subsidiary Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense of America held its “Day of Action” on Capitol Hill (and “throughout the country) today. [Click here for the Everytown video.] With bereaved anti-gun Dad Andy Parker headlining the event, it still only managed to assemble a small crowd of roughly 100 supporters. (A number they will no doubt inflate.) Even less surprising: the unquestioning mainstream media coverage. wusa9.com . . .
Thursday, Andy Parker told the rally on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol close to the intersection of First and Constitution, NE that “we can, we must, and we will” prevail over opponents of new background check legislation. Parker’s daughter and WDBJ cameraman Adam Ward were ambushed and fatally shot during a live television interview last month at a community outside Roanoke.
Parker was joined at the rally by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe as well as Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine. They urged Congress to revisit a failed 2013 vote on legislation requiring background checks for online gun sales and purchases at gun shows.
Gun violence kills 88 Americans and hurts hundreds more every day, the Everytown Survivor Network said.
The rest of the left-leaning media rat pack are on it, now, sure to help spread a message which singularly fails to motivate Americans to surrender their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. How great is that?
