I’m a member of a gun rights organization called GeorgiaCarry.Org. I watched the social media site “Thunderclap” for several days this week. The Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ affiliate Georgia Gun Sense “group” started a page to “Tell Georgia lawmakers: more guns, in more places, makes us less safe.” Their goal: to get a hundred people to click “support” using a social media site. After seven days they came up 14 people short. Let that sink in. They were unable to get 100 people to click on “support” in a week. Let’s look at the GeorgiaGunSense Twitter feed panic in reverse chronological order . . .
Not to give anything away, but Georgia Gun Sense eventually got there – after an extension. The Twitter feed is a fun read for those of us who do what we can to create the so-called “enthusiasm gap” between gun rights supporters and gun control advocates. Again, we start at the end, and then skip around a bit, and then leave out the rest for brevity’s sake.
