“Moms Demand Action volunteers face sexism and misogyny every day advocating for common sense gun safety, but it only increases our resolve and reminds us why it’s so important to keep demanding that women and survivors of gun violence get a seat at the table.” – Shannon Watts in This Change In Law Will Save Women’s Lives [via refinery29]

Shannon Watts Vows to Continue to Bully Gun Owners
Fixed it for her.
Refinery29? What the [Yosemite Sam character string] is Refinery29?
If this is where she has to go to get published, we’re making progress.
So it’s considered bullying now to prevent stupid people from doing stupid things?
No! Don’t drink that bleach!
-Shut up you bully!
Alright, drink it then.
The analogy would be more like, You can no longer use bleach to clean your toilet because someone might drink the bleach. I think gun owners are okay with, don’t drink the bleach. As a matter of fact the NRA exist to keep people from drinking the bleach, as it were, because they are in the business of writing the warning labels.
FLAME DELETED, OBSCENITY DELETED, FLAME DELETED….Thank you. TTAG word Nazi has spoken. 15 FLAMES, OBSCENITYS DELETED in one comments section…16 when this one gets cencored. Hhmmmm, mayhaps a review/revision of TTAGs cencorship policy is in order. Our of 52 comments 16 were deleted outright or cencored..so TTAG is batting around .200 in cencorship. I’m surprised MSNBC hasn’t called with job offers!
Bloomberg’s EXPLETIVE DELETED is still running her mouth?
Somebody should inform them they lost when the “resistance” democrats started arming themselves.
They won’t disarm because some jackhole or his FLAME DELETED says too.
OK, I got it now. If you disagree with Shannon Watts you’re a bully. Yea, right. I never thought at 70 years old I could be a bully, but snowflakes seem to belong to the permanently aggrieved class of people longing to be subjects of government. Or, is this her tactic to remain in the spotlight so as to collect as much as she can in donations from her foolish fellow travelers? Whatever the reason does anyone listen but us?
“Moms Demand Action volunteers face sexism and misogyny every day advocating for common sense gun safety…”
Translation: Disagreeing with me and my ilk automatically makes you a bad person.
Who is bullying poor Shannon and her few followers?? Not me or anyone I know for sure. The more she opens her mouth and Mickys dollar bills fly out the better . Right?
Not that it matters but doesn’t she realize or care. It would be her fault if she gets her way. More women could be hurt. Due to a women not being able or having the best possible protection available to them, or it taken away.
Don’t do it. For the childrens sake Shannon.
How does she and her followers know that they are being bullied when they block everyone on social media who questions or opposes them? On the contrary, they are the bullies. Moms Demand activists engage in efforts to get their opponents suspended or banned on social media sites.
Useful idiot espousing the paid narrative. Karl would be proud of her. Accuse others of what you do.
Gee Shannon, it must be tough work trying to create a “safe working environment” for rapists, robbers, violent racists and jihadis. Keep up the fight, trying to protect innocent rapists from their cruel victims who have the arrogance to fight back. You go girl! (Just probably not far enough away from decent people…)
If you don’t want to talk about your gender and being a parent don’t bring it up like it gives you the right to tell me whether to have guns. They wave it in your face then when you say “so what” you’re a bully.
But having functioning ovaries while having unprotected sexual intercourse automatically makes your opinions meaningful, and everybody else should just shut up and agree with you…
Um…. isn’t that sexist in itself that she assumes lawful self defense with a gun is for men only?
Shannon Watts is a great example why sexism & misogyny exist: No one wants to include people on the decision making team when that person puts feelings over facts, and advocates specifically that everyone else change their behavior in order to accomodate them and their precious feelings.
In other words, she is using the fact that she is female to get her way. A lot of women do this, esp Leftist women.
And that is not an argument.
And yet, she wants to disarm women in the face of all this alleged sexism and misogyny. Oh that makes a lot of sense. It seems perhaps Shannon might be somewhat sexist and misogynistic, herself.
Shannon to all women everywhere, one could imagine her saying: “You suck and I hate you.”
For close to a year now, I have noticed that the Mom’s messaging is increasingly feminist and increasingly SJW in tone and rhetoric styling.
And politically, the Democrats are finding out that SJW crapola isn’t winning Middle America, who they *must* have to win politically:
“Why Do So Many Americans Think Democrats Are Out of Touch?
The party appears to be struggling to convince the public it represents a better alternative to President Trump and the GOP.”
Laws can’t save women’s lives. Laws can’t save ANY person’s life. The very idea is a moronic fallacy concocted by people with poor reasoning skills. Only the threat of like violence keeps violent people in check. Only the fear that an angry man with a gun and badge will show up at your door keeps the typical (though not ALL) violent crank from acting out in public. They had just as many laws in Roman times as now, and Rome was a violent place where rape and murder were common. Only the threat of an angry man with a gladius and a uniform showing up on your doorstep kept violent men in check back then. The thin veneer of ‘civilization’ will never change that fact. All Shannon and her kind want to do is take us back to Rome where only the rich could afford the angry man with a weapon. Shannon: screw you peasants! My badge-and-gun-toting friend is booked solid responding to my whims.
She is the gun control lobby’s paid OBSCENITY DELETED.
Ms.Watts and her Moms Demand Action volunteers face sexism and misogyny all at the bidding of her and their master Mr. M. B-Loon-burg,ironic or moronic.
This woman lies and lies.
If she cared about the safety of children she’d adopt what would work.
The NRA doesn’t want spousal abusers to kill people!
They want clear due process.
I’ve talked to enough lawyers who find the laws not effective. One said if he and his wife had a fuss and got restraining orders against each neither could own guns.
Also, some people on the interweb promise to rape people they disagree with. It has happened in the gaming world, it happens in every part of social media.
What’s the chance we here own, that some, who don’t speak for us, are threatening people who we disagree with?
Doesn’t make Watts right. Doesn’t mean we support her stance.
I’m with Shannon on this one — women should be totally defenseless and dependent on men. You know, like she is.
Don’t leave out her dependence on private armed security and gated communities. 😉
Now I get it. The Hysterical Mother is a victim. Shannon’s Sugar Daddy is spending serious dollars on politicians and all she gets is a bunch of lousy t-shirts. Maybe she can get the idiot children, running wild in the streets burning police cars, to pay attention to her. Sugar Daddy would surely shower her with riches is she could deliver crowds like that.
I vow to continue the fight against Anti 2A Bullies.
As near as I can tell Shannon is a wholly owned property of one Mike Bloomberg, she slavishly goes, does, and says what he directs. Essentially this poor woman is reduced to running back and forth across the country between the anti-freedom northeast and the socialist west coast spewing whatever nonsense she is programmed to regurgitate. Unlike when she shilled for Monsanto, she must treat every pathetic rag of a SJW publication as if it matters. It isn’t like Bloomberg’s news structure is going to give her a regular column, after all!
“Essentially this poor woman is reduced to running back and forth across the country…”
That “poor woman” is paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for her time and effort by the diminutive Mayor Mike. She recently moved to Colorado from Indiana, most likely to set herself up to run for a seat in Congress. A campaign that will, no doubt, receive ample support from her billionaire paymaster.
“She recently moved to Colorado from Indiana, most likely to set herself up to run for a seat in Congress.”
From that article you linked:
“Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District, which Polis has represented since 2009, has a significant Democratic tilt in terms of voter registration. As of Nov. 1, there were about 184,000 active Democratic voters compared to about 144,000 Republicans. Unaffiliated voters were the largest bloc, however, with 199,000, according to statistics kept by the Colorado secretary of state.”
Look at those numbers. The UNAFFILIATED, swing voters are the largest voting bloc, by a large margin.
Middle America is increasingly *rejecting* the SJW siren call. If she runs, it’s no guarantee she’ll win.
EDIT – Wait, that’s Boulder. She’ll probably win…
“Refinery29 is an American-based fashion, style, and beauty website that follows a newsletter format. The website is broken down into six sections, with an additional section that offers content geared toward specific, metropolitan cities in the United States” (wikipedia).
“Refinery29 is an American-based fashion, style, and beauty website (that is being spammed by Shannon’s political gabage)…”
If I were a participant there, I’d be hitting the ‘report to moderator’ button hard.
Does this means she is going to fight herself?
Misogynist: Noun: 1.One who unfairly judges women. 2. One who is unfairly judged by women.
Again she’s the gun lobby’s paid off FLAME DELETED, nothing more
“Moms Demand Action volunteers face sexism and misogyny every day…”
Well then, I declare that Bloomie’s Stray Voltage identifies as astro turf, in a super-intelligent shade of blue. Astro-Watts is still wrong and a hack, not because or zee’s (Is this the right one for blue turf?) gender, orientation, or even color. Being wrong and a hack is sufficient.
Finally feel special…FLAME DELETED by the ANTI 1A censorship god.
Oh dear. My flame was deleted. Even my “LOL” was deleted and that wasn’t even a flame!
I’m not positive but I think they are trying to send a message.
— …. / .– . .-.. .-..
OBSCENITY DELETED with a rusty shovel.
She is nothing but an apologist for tyranny.
Didn’t she kick a woman out of the elitist club when the woman complained they were sponsoring an event that was also sponsored by the NRA? Didn’t they then bully and harass the woman for not towing the line like she was told to do?
The problem with the “domestic violence” bit, is that later, when they have shaped up and bettered their lives, remarried, had kids, etc, they won’t be able to protect their family from those intent to harm. They wouldn’t be able to hunt for food for their family, or to protect their livestock on the farm, even if their wife wants them to.
The problem with these laws, is the burden placed upon the law abiding exceeds the burden placed upon the law breaker. It is not very burdensome for a domestic violence abuser to obtain a firearm for their premeditated or impulsive murder after turning in the weapons following a domestic violence conviction (if indeed they turned them all in!). It is very burdensome, for the one who followed the law (like the example above), to exercise the activities mentioned while following the law. I would be very interested in seeing how effective a law like this is. If a domestic abuser was going to kill his wife and was committed to do so, it would be more beneficial for her to take steps to protect herself, than for the law to try to disarm a free and roaming person of hostile intent.
It just looks like security theater to me.
I am going to describe Miss Watts there using some sign language I learned recently. If I were to translate what the signs are to text it would read something like FLAME DELETED.
We could treat it like a game of charades….. two words, first word, short word, four letters…..
“it’s so important to keep demanding that women … get a seat at the table.” That’s sexist and probably misandrist right there. She is advocating that “seats at the table” be divided on the basis of gender.
Shannon Watts is a bigot and, according to the left’s own rules, should be ignored completely or punished.
