Today was Everytown for Gun Safety’s third annual “wear orange” day. It’s not known if Hare Krishnas or prisoners wearing orange were participating or just kicking out the jammies. Anyway, the mainstream media was not entirely impressed . . .
Of the usual big name suspects, only People reached the top of the Google search pile under “wear orange day.” US Magazine chimed in with a rather pathetic if predictable angle: Wear Orange for National Gun Violence Awareness Day June 2 — Celebs Are!
essence.com’s headline also reflected Orange Day’s lack of gravitas amongst the anti-gun media: Wearing Orange Can Help Stop Gun Violence, Seriously. So far, the rest of the coverage was small or local, or small and local.
For its part, pro-gunners ridiculed and/or fisked Everytown’s misleading misegos on Facebook (as above), Twitter and the rest of the blogosphere.
Which is easy enough to do when the official Wear Orange Facebook page invites international readers to find a Wear Orange event in Afghanistan and the Aland Islands (to name the first two). Picture or it didn’t happen!
[FYI wikipedia.org informs us that the Aland Islands are an archipelago at the entrance to the Gulf of Bothnia in the Baltic Sea belonging to Finland. It is autonomous, demilitarised and is the only monolingually Swedish-speaking region in Finland. It is the smallest region of Finland, constituting 0.49% of its land area and 0.50% of its population.”]
What did happen? Bloomberg spent more of his money on civilian disarmament and Americans who get their jollies from virtue signaling gathered to exercise their First Amendment protected right to wear orange, some of whom were accompanied by pandering pols ready, willing and able to betray their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.
Strangely none of them were bullied, intimidated or threatened by The People of the Gun. I wonder why that is?
Let’s dupe them into wearing their orange get-ups on St. Patrick’s day in Boston and NYC.
That should be entertaining, even without guns.
Now, THAT’S funny, right there. I don’t care who you are.
Maybe they should wear orange DJT wigs.
This is such a bizarre otherworld thing they’re trying to do…
Who wears orange? Two classes of people: hunters, and convicted criminals. And Donald Trump is orange, so I guess that makes three.
Why would the pearl-clutchers want to associate themselves with any of those groups?
What a dumb, stupid idea. “By wearing an odd color, we can stamp out ‘gun violence’ for good.” Yeah, good luck with that.
And +1,000 to Shayna Lopez Rivas. What a brilliant rebuttal.
Road workers do, though they’re more yellow these days. Not that liberals have much love for people in construction either.
In all seriousness, where are you? It’s been ‘safety yellow-green’ since forever even in the MW.
I like and wear orange, it’s a good color. Kind of like the damn LBGT creeps taking the color of the rainbow and turning it into a perversion; these damn libs now defaming orange, fuck ’em.
The LGBT stealing the rainbow and Google finding some reason to celebrate LGBT every other day with one of their animated bullshit themes.
I didn’t know to mock them today since all those cowards at everytown, shannon watts, etc. blocked me for a civil debate on guns and the laws.
Those cowards only surround themselves with robotic idiots.
I celebrated by buying about 400 rounds of ammo today.
They would look good in orange jump suits accessorized with handcuffs.
Remington ought to turn out a special .22 round in orange just for this day. I’d buy a thousand rounds!
And Ruger ought to offer their Mark III & IV .22 pistols in orange, just for this day… or at least offer orange holsters for open carry.
We could show we’re serious about reducing “gun violence” by being prepared to stop it.
Gun violence is a womans issue??
Like, women cause it? My significant other may cause me greif, but never enouogh to cause my guns to become violent. Maybe becuase she limp wrist’s them?
Why are you giving these liberal douches free advertising?
One day a year your enemy wears all the same bright color, single themselves out and stands in the street, bunched up real tight, making a lot of noise, with their fists in the air.
/sarc (if you’re triggered)
This is what happened to mom that aren’t getting it regularly, they go bat crazy.
This Vietnam Vet having traveled through the left coast heading home really dislike’s the Orange wrapped Hare Krishna’s, so what makes the clowns think that wearing this color will further their cause!
Just finished a 3 day,” day shift” at the FD . The first two I wore a watch with an orange dive strap, then yesterday I wore a watch on a SS bracelet ( I had no,idea about wear orange day ) I guess my subconscious picked it up.
I did for the first time see a woman wearing a moms demand action T shirt, at a mva , it took all I had to stay professional . ” hey I’m off at 4 if you want a,little action ……”
I’m all for their orange themed coordination. Asylum inmates need matching uniforms.
Criminals will take note of this and only go for women wearing orange.
I wear blaze orange…when I ride my motorcycle.
Convert an orange wearing friend today – take them shooting!
