Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America reckon they won big in the mid-term elections. In fact, pro-gun pols slammed the antis across the U.S. The only real victories enjoyed by the doyennes of disarmament: the retention of anti-gun governors in Colorado, California and Connecticut and the passage of I-594 in Washington State. I doubt MDA’s “gun sense voters” tipped the balance in those gubernatorial races. And the Evergreen State Universal Background Check debacle was well and truly tipped by . . .
the tsunami of cash injected into the “debate” by statist billionaires Michael Bloomberg, Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Ballmer and Nick Hanauer – not the Moms. Money that funded a blizzard of pro-I-594 commercials, for which the NRA and SAF had no good reply (pointing out that registration leads to confiscation).
Of course, MDA are the antis’ poster child, their Trojan horse. So while the BS is strong in this self-congratulatory video, and the anti-gun group were handed their hat in the Senate, firearms freedom advocates would do well to remember Sun Tzu’s advice: all warfare is based on deception.
