TTAG Reader Goes Mom Spotting

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America Mom (courtesy Drew W)

Regular readers know that Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDA) is an astroturf organization. Although Shannon Watts claims over 2m “members”, none of them are dues-paying (thanks to the funding provided by former NYC Mayor and billionaire bully boy Michael Blooomberg). More to the point, a local MDA “rally” tends to produce something more than a quorum and less than two dozen participants, a significant percent of whom possess testicles. Because MDA “members” are so rare, one TTAG reader was taken aback when he actually say one. Drew W. snapped the pic above and writes . . .

Well, it happened. It finally happened. I spotted my first Moms Demand Action Supporter and at the University I attend, no less. I’m actually surprised it took me this long to publicly spot one. I live in a very conservative area that happens to host a very liberal university. Anyway, I figured you might be able to make a little game out of spotting Moms Demand Action supporters. I spotted mine at a Science Lecture on Nuclear Power, where have you spotted them?

      Great Ideal!!!! we can have a picture board like where’s waldo….only it would be wheres Shannon or where’s dumbergor better yet where’s the 2 million plus members…LOL

      1. avatar Gene says:

        Out of a population of, what, 300 million, that’s 1 in 150 on mathematical mean. Which is what percent?

        1. avatar tfunk says:

          Just about .7%

    2. avatar Daniel Silverman says:

      I see a new drinking game on the horizon, unfortunately no one gets drunk!

  2. avatar Danny Griffin says:

    I can’t tell from the cropped pic, is that a man or woman?

    1. avatar Drew W. says:

      It’s a middle-aged women.

      1. avatar Gene says:

        Dunno how you could tell, honestly, (self moderated comment about not knowing if “things” are hanging around the knees – yes, I should be ashamed of myself)

        1. avatar John Galt says:

          Yes. Yes you should be ashamed.

          Such ridicule does nothing but reinforce gun-owner stereotypes and drives people away.

  3. avatar Ah Clem says:

    I keep looking for them at my local Kroger; maybe they’re just blocked out by the Scout groups selling cookies and popcorn.

  4. avatar John from Marylandistan says:

    Those men at these protests are ones who have voluntarily given up their testicles for their wives to keep under lock and key.

    1. avatar Roscoe says:

      Meaning of course the neutered hubby never get’s to use them since dear wifie mommy always says…NO! She’s too busy suppressing…guns…of all sorts.

      1. avatar Rob.G says:

        I don’t quite understand how Moms can Demand “Action” from Eunuchs, but oh well.

    2. avatar CTsheepdog says:

      Single nut “beta males”. The same useful male idiots who support the #HeForShe “movement”.

  5. avatar Greg says:

    That’s a cute shirt but I bet she/he wouldn’t wear that in Chicago. Any criminal would quickly snatch anything of value from that poor and confused person.

    1. avatar Stinkeye says:

      How would that shirt make the wearer any different from all the other disarmed peasants in Chicago?

      1. avatar Nick D says:

        This shirt says two things:
        I have money
        I have no means of protecting it

        It’s like a pack of wolves looking at a herd of deer, and they see a fat, juicy one with a limp and a cough. How can they resist?

        1. avatar Stinkeye says:

          My point is, the vast majority of people in Chicago have no means of protecting themselves. You don’t need to look for a shirt to know who to rob in that city. Just pick any random person, and you have extremely good odds they’re unarmed.

          In any case, most of the criminals there are products of the Chicago public school system, and therefore probably can’t read the shirt anyway…

      2. avatar bontai Joe says:

        In Chicago, the odds are well in your favor for picking a random person and having them, be unarmed. But a “Mom’s” t-shirt wearer is like a 100% guarantee that person is unarmed AND has money to throw away on stupid causes.

  6. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

    I would love a shirt for going shooting, cleaning my guns, changing my oil, going to strip club, whatever. how can we get one without actually paying for it and funding the enemy??

    1. avatar Chris. says:

      Start dating one of the Moms who already has one… Then you can borrow hers.

      1. avatar Jus Bill says:

        EWW – COOTIES!!!!!

    2. avatar Geoff PR says:

      Just show up at an MDA rally, Dr.Diggler…

      (Gotta admit, I like the idea of wearing one at one of Joe Redner’s stripper bars in Tampa…like the Mons Venus…)

    3. avatar pod says:

      I used to work in a print shop – we didn’t do silk screen, we did heat transfer from color laser printers. I made bootleg and parody t-shirts all the time. One of my favorite record labels at the time charged $50 for their shirts plus international shipping (German label) so I merely scanned their logo and replicated it on a one-off t-shirt. Couldn’t tell the difference.

      So, what you do is get the MDA logo from their website, use to convert it to a vector file suitable for printing – then get transfer paper:

      Then iron on, and you are good to go.

      Yeah, the paper is $55.00 but you get 100 sheets so you could actually make one MDA shirt for fun, and then use the 99 other sheets to make your own pro-2A shirts or whatever.

      If I still did printing I’d gladly run off shirts at cost for TTAG fun.

      1. avatar IdahoPete says:

        Could we have the TTAG focus group change the last line to improve the parody? Something like “Moms Demand Action – on Friday nights…”. Try to keep it relatively family-suitable, TTAGers.

        1. avatar pod says:

          It wouldn’t be too difficult to change the slogan. It’s a bog-standard sans-serif font.

        2. avatar neiowa says:

          “Menopausal Moms Demand Action – someday, maybe, na”

        3. avatar CCDWGuy says:

          Mom’s Demand 100% AR 15 Ownership and support Open Carry!

      2. avatar Geoff PR says:

        You know, the Office Depot or Staples print department may be able to do that…

  7. avatar A-Rod says:

    See the friend that is also in the picture, top left corner in partial view. Every time I see big hoop earrings I remember an expression for my college days ‘The bigger the hoops the bigger the ‘ho’. Well, those are kinda medium sized so maybe she is just medium sized too.

  8. avatar James says:

    I spotted a group of them a few months ago around Clarke and 28th in Milwaukee to demand accountability from the county DA’s office and county judges for going soft on Sylvester Lewis, a felon that illegally obtain a weapon and kill a 10 year old on a playground as part of a crossfire with another felon with a weapon.

    Oh wait…….that was fantasy land. MDA members in Wisconsin must not care about Sierra Guyton then since there are so many of them, if they wanted to demand change here, they would, right?

    OK, I’ll start taking my sarcasm suppression meds now.

  9. avatar Rusty Chains says:

    It might be fun to have one of those shirts to wear while open carrying!

    1. avatar Misnomer says:

      You should get one with the word “Demand” with a line through it and “Take” written in. That would go well with open carry.

      “Demand” sounds silly next to the more firm action “Take.” It makes them sound like a bunch of shrill annoying whiners.

  10. avatar Frank says:

    Never seen one. I feel like I would notice, too.

  11. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

    or we can make/buy a bunch and offer them up to convicted felons re-entering society and see how long it takes one of them to commit an armed robbery while wearing said t-shirt. . . . and make sure media gets lots of good perp walk shots when the arrest happens.

    1. avatar Pantera Vazquez says:

      He he he. Me Like this idea.

  12. avatar Chadwick P says:

    I think an awesome parody shirt would be great. “moms demanding action” and just below that a silhouette of a fat woman shooting a pistol”. Or “single moms demand action” with a picture of a stripper and then below that “one dollar at a time”. Both would need a likeness of the Bloomberg communist party logo of course.

    1. avatar Wood says:

      Or “Moms Demand Single Action”

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        Or, “Moms Demand Wood”


  13. avatar former water walker says:

    Never seen one. I’ve seen plenty of Obama shirts from the clueless. LOTS of pro gun shirts. Maybe they need to have dead children with blood stains on it so we would notice 🙂

  14. avatar John Boch says:

    It was a free t-shirt.

    Broke college kids will take free t-shirts from anyone and everyone. Hell, they might have bought it at Goodwill.


    1. avatar Drew W. says:

      A middle-aged woman who was attending a science lecture was wearing it. She wasn’t a college student.

  15. avatar Another Robert says:

    Haven’t seen one here in the Piney Woods of Texas yet. Maybe in Tyler??

  16. avatar Tim says:

    Never spotted one. it’s like the lochness monster and bigfoot! lol myths around these parts. lol

  17. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    “I live in a very conservative area that happens to host a very liberal university.”

    Is there any such thing as a conservative university? If there is, I have never heard of one.

    1. avatar Danny Griffin says:


    2. avatar Curtis in IL says:

      Brigham Young?

    3. avatar Timmy! says:

      While I am not an Aggie, nor do I play one on TV, it is my understanding that Texas A&M is fairly conservative.

      1. avatar Another Robert says:

        I think “conservative” only in the relative sense.

  18. avatar Gunr says:

    I’d like to show up at one of their rallies with a shirt that says “Moms Demand Action” any action, I just want to get laid!

  19. avatar 277Volt says:

    Spot the MDA supporter – a surprisingly appropriate drinking game for AA members.

  20. avatar HiddenHills says:

    “a significant percent of whom possess testicles.”

    Possession does not guarantee ownership.

    In this case, probably more akin to carrying purses for the on-scene Demander In Charge Korp

  21. avatar OODAloop says:

    I think you should report her to the University. You feel threatened by her wearing the shirt as it projects a lack of personal responsibility and is a magnet for gun-crazed lunatics. She’s promoting statist beliefs that attack your feeling of well being and you’re scared that her wearing the shirt will attract an active killer who wants to take advantage of the disarmed aura she projects. It poisons the learning environment you’re there to take part of and dampens any conversation because you just don’t know when she’s going to explode into a disarmament tirade and lower the relative IQ of the entire class.

    Remember to stress the fear that she projects while wearing the shirt and use Bambi deer-in-the-headlight eyes. Because.

  22. avatar Ralph says:

    Never seen one. Then again, I haven’t been to any of the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health hospitals, where I’m sure MDA members congregate to discuss their voices and visions.

  23. avatar Don says:

    I put 2 and 2 together as an adolescent and tried very hard to stay away from spotting moms.

  24. avatar J o e says:

    I thought this would be pics of hot ladies shooting guns. Let-down…or idea for future piece.

  25. avatar CT Resident says:

    Are you sure they didn’t just get a free shirt from Bloomberg?

  26. avatar ADC USN/Ret says:

    Gun-grabbers take note.

    Gun Free Zones Kill.

    Therefor, lawmakers enacting those laws are killing us.

    Therefor the gun-grabbers who knowingly vote for them, kill.

    Is there more than that? YOU gun-grabbers are the problem!

  27. avatar bontai Joe says:

    I have never seen one. In my neck of the woods, John Deere shirts and NRA shirts/hats predominate the scene.

  28. avatar Scrubula says:

    Umm… I saw that MDA accepts electronic donations at the checkout line in the nearby Safeway grocery store…

    1. avatar Jus Bill says:

      I think that was the Muscular Dystrophy Association. At least it should be; they do something good for society. Next time ask.

  29. avatar Indiana Tom says:

    where have you spotted them? We looked high and low fo them at the Indy NRA convention ,but none were to be found.

  30. avatar Jus Bill says:

    I’m waiting for them to surface here in The Worker’s Paradise, Maryland ™ when Obersturmfheurer Watts appears in a thunderclap and cloud of sulfur smoke.

  31. avatar Drew in GA says:

    They didn’t have special shirts, but I’m pretty sure there were a lot in the conference committee hearings for the gun bills in Atlanta.
