Shannon Watts: Moms Demand Action is Totally a Non-Partisan Operation

Head mom and Michael Bloomberg sock puppet Shannon Watts makes the case that her civilian disarmament organization is happy to work both sides of the aisle.

I think we can (get through to Republican voters). We’re not a partisan organization. We spend a lot of time working both sides of the aisle. We have a great grassroots army on the ground who are constantly meeting with our lawmakers.

When we look at last year, which was our most successful year ever in terms of passing stronger gun laws, in nine of those states, the laws were signed by Republican governors. If you look at the Republicans we’re talking with—Larry Hogan from Maryland and John Kasich—they seem to have had a change of heart and mind. If you have two Republicans who are seemingly good on this issue, it really leaves Donald Trump as the only potential candidate who opposes. That is because he got a $30 million investment from the NRA.

With HR8, the house on background check bill, it was introduced by five Republicans and five Democrats. In some races, like Pennsylvania 1, both the Republican and Democratic candidate had the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense distinction. It is growing and it is possible.

    April fools.

    2. avatar Andrew Lias says:

      Kasich should run as a Democrat; Everyone else is and he’s annoyingly liberal but still not insane unlike many of the other candidates. He’s a CIS genered white male so maybe I’m failing to take that into account.

      1. avatar don says:

        Kasich has pretty much lost his base in Ohio. His anti-gun views of late has done him in. He should switch parties.

        1. avatar Dennis Sumner says:

          He already did, just didnt change his designation. Got a few of those.

  2. avatar Sean G./The Rookie says:

    I’m gonna keep my thoughts to myself on this one, as I don’t want to get a “FLAME DELETED” zot.

    1. avatar Daniel Silverman says:

      Yeah I am really not shocked or shocked. They are only bipartisan if you believe exactly what they want. See how that works!

      1. avatar Pk says:

        Just another flamming nut job liberal course states are falling for this bs.they do scare tactics and strong these states.people need to grow a set and stand there ground and push anti gun group will be happy until all guns are taken away from US.lets be 1930’s nazi will soon be like that unless people stand there ground and push back.

    Nothing will surprise me what comes out of the mouth of the left. Abraham Lincoln stated it best ” If someone thinks you are a mentally inept. Then speak only have it confirmed.”

    1. avatar Big Bill says:

      Do you mean Abraham Lincoln, the president?
      I thought he was much more articulate than that.

      1. avatar That One Guy says:

        The premise has been attributed to many people…and all versions were far more eloquent than the one presented above.

        “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.”

  4. avatar Dennis Sumner says:

    Yeah sure, Theyre as bipartisan as CNN. Another outfit that cant spell bipartisan!

  5. avatar Ed Schrade says:

    ” We do not want to take your guns, but.”….

  6. avatar NORDNEG says:

    Mom moms demand action,,, ha, my mom demanded action also, did she get it? Only when my dad was home…😤

    1. avatar GAD says:

      You should have been deposited in a sock.

  7. avatar Turncoat the Fourth says:

    Sandy Hook shooting showed we need common sense mom control.

  8. avatar Jon in CO says:

    I miss Dirk. I hope he returns.

    1. avatar barnbwt says:

      Diggler was the best on these sorts of articles. I assume he finally got either a restraining order, or rocked Shannon’s world (maybe both)

    2. avatar Ralph says:

      Ditto. Dirk was awesome. Probably he still is, just not here.

      1. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

        I *hope* Dan Z. e-mails that pic to Dr. Dirk.

        For his ‘special’ folder of Shannon pics, for when he is unwinding, at the end of a long day, scotch in one hand, and {Deleted} in the other… 😉

    I’m sure they get plenty of support from the fudds, until they start coming after their beloved O/U’s and bolt actions.

  10. avatar Michael says:

    Not worthy of a headline. All of her kind walk both sides of the street, and all of them are always looking for more. By their deeds you will know them. F-K-A.

  11. avatar steve says:

    Gun Control ? That’s when you can hit the TEN ring from 20 yards consistently isn’t it?

  12. avatar Mafic says:

    I miss Dirk’s input on articles like this.

    1. avatar Geoff "Bring back Dirk!" PR says:

      “I miss Dirk’s input on articles like this.”

      Hey, Dan – Please email Dirk and invite him to return, he was such a romantic for Shannon’s… er, …’beauty’… *cough*… 😉

  13. avatar GunnyGene says:

    Just stop it, Shannon. Even if you did get both sides of the aisle to unanimously endorse your agenda, nobody would comply. Certainly not criminals, and you can’t predict the future.

  14. avatar Timothy Toroian says:

    A quarter of gun crimes take place in Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. and about 50% of murders occur in about 5% of the counties but you never hear them mention that. They aren’t interested in stopping crime they just want to take guns from everybody. Those cities mentioned are and have been governed by DEMOCRATS. Stick that in Bloomberg’s pipe lady. Criminal misusers of firearms should go to jail with no plea bargaining down and the sentences should be double what they currently are with a second such crime worth 50 years. That might cut down on gun crime. Make the time NOT worth the time. But they feel sorry for the “underprivileged” who seldom use guns to acquire food. A few Rinos joining you DOES NOT bipartisan make.

  15. avatar Ralph says:

    Actually, Demanding Moms is Tripartisan — Bloombag was a Democrat, a Republican and an independent.

    1. avatar rosignol says:

      Beat me to it.

  16. avatar Vic Nighthorse says:

    Of course she’d take money from Republicans and anti-gun votes from Republican legislators. I suspect that is what she means and am pretty sure it is true.

  17. avatar John Boch says:

    Shannon Watts …aka Shannon Troughton, President and owner of of VoxPop Public Relations, a boutique liberal PR firm…

  18. avatar Green Mtn. Boy says:

    For a Marxist based operation, it’s very Bipartisan,NOT.

  19. avatar GS650G says:

    They are bi.partisan.
    Liberals and socialists.

  20. avatar Destro says:

    If they want Action they should stick to tinder while their husbands sit in a corner watching lol.

  21. avatar MLee says:

    Bipartisan my ass. It’s bipartisan as long as a republican sees it their way or otherwise gives in.
    Ms. Watts can just flame flame flame and flame flame!

  22. avatar jram01 says:

    SOCK PUPPETT. That’s funny.
    That name should be attached to VP Pence. Fits perfectly.
    Remember when Pence placed his water bottle under the table 1/4 of a second behind the “Dumpster”? Now that was hilarious.:)

  23. avatar Frank M. says:

    I dunno fellas. I know plenty of conservative gun control advocates. Authoritarianism is bi-partisan.

  24. avatar possum says:

    An army, they’ve got an army. Ooohhh sht a whole army of Moms demanding. Now honey do has some teeth

  25. avatar WI Patriot says:

    “Shannon Watts: Moms Demand Action is Totally a Bipartisan Operation”

    Bi maybe, but it has NOTHING to do with partisanship…

  26. avatar ToddR says:

    I’d hit that.

    1. avatar possum says:

      Me too, at least twice, maybe even a mag dump

  27. avatar UpInArms says:

    ” If you look at the Republicans we’re talking with—Larry Hogan from Maryland and John Kasich ”

    The most laughable line in the whole article. Neither one qualifies as a Republican beyond their voter registration card.

  28. avatar Eric O says:

    That’s what people get when they vote for members of the Republi-Crat Criminal Cartel: bipartisan violation of rights. And that’s beside ever expanding federal government and national debt, but I repeat myself.

  29. avatar raptor jesus says:

    Shannon Watts blocked me on Twitter

  30. avatar Inigo Montoya says:

    “..We have a great *grassroots* army on the ground ”

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

  31. avatar Salty Bear says:

    If we can’t admit she’s right, we’ll just keep losing our freedoms.
