Hot Take: Mom’s Demand Action Is Not Anti-Gun

And they’re grassroots!

From the article

Moms Demand Action is a grassroots organization advocating for stronger gun control measures, founded as a Facebook group the day after the that took the lives of 26 people, 20 of whom were young children. But while its members advocate for an assault ban, Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts says that it’s a “misnomer” to call the group anti-gun.

“Often people think that because we’re doing this work, we’re anti-gun or we don’t support the Second Amendment. Nothing could be further from the truth,” Watts said in an interview with CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett in this week’s episode of “The Takeout” podcast. Watts noted that many volunteers the organization were gun owners or married to gun owners.

“This is simply about restoring the responsibilities that go along with gun rights,” Watts said. She added that while the top priorities for Moms Demand Action are background checks, red-flag laws and disarming domestic abusers, the organization also advocates for an assault weapons ban and has worked with municipalities on the issue.

She is right, because it is a misnomer to call the group anti-gun and anti-2nd Amendment: they are also very much anti-4th Amendment, being happy to remove people’s due process in order to take their guns. Anyhow, if they are calling for taking away people’s guns, at least relating to law abiding citizens, which they are, then they are anti-2nd Amendment. They do not advocate for making sure that Red Flag laws protect other Constitutional rights, that they aren’t abused (even the ACLU is worried about Red Flag laws), they advocate for no provisions for protection.

Shannon runs Mom’s Demand, which is funded via Everytown, which comes from billionaire Mike Bloomberg, and, all her tweets seem to be about electing people who want to enact massive gun control on law abiding citizens and blaming guns for crimes.

While on the subject of firearms, let’s check in with another loony Democrats

This Young Progressive Candidate Wants To End Everyday Gun Violence In Chicago

Gun violence activist Robert Emmons Jr. is 27 years old and running for Congress in Illinois’ 1st District, seeking to unseat Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush, who’s been in office for most of Emmons’ life.

Emmons, a progressive newcomer who is pushing for a Green New Deal and “Medicare for All,” is placing gun violence at the center of his platform. His district, which includes Chicago’s South Side, is one of the areas of the city with the highest rates of shootings. He moved to the lower-income area as a young teen and lost a close friend to gun violence in 2015.

“We know what causes gun violence in our district,” Emmons said in his campaign video. “It’s not lack of morals… it’s systemic poverty, it’s educational inequity.”

He sees the solutions to gun violence in his district and beyond not as more law enforcement or even stricter gun laws ― Illinois already has some of the strictest gun laws in the country ― but rather as providing a living wage, making health care affordable, eliminating student debt and more.

Very interesting. The majority of this casual gun play occurs in the same Democratic districts and cities, where the people (mostly blacks, because Democrats love blacks down on modern day plantations) are given money, free health care, and so forth. Not many in those uber-urban areas are going to college and racking up student debt, and, really, does anyone think that having student debt makes someone want to pick up a gun and go on a rampage?

If there’s educational inequality, well, Democrats run this. They run the cities and the school systems, do they not? Perhaps they should be teaching some morals.

    Perfect democRAT operative – she lies out of both sides of her mouth at the same time.

  2. Kye says:

    Sorry. Morals require a judgement call of right and wrong and just as leftists can’t identify two sexes they can’t define right and wrong. Ask Fredo. If we teach them morals we’d “impose” colonial white privilege and compromise their black/hispanic/middle eastern identity. Besides, that’s almost like teaching Christianity which is illegal. The only religion that can legally be taught is the leftist faith.

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Gomer is getting increasingly nonsensical, frustrated and angry. Con morals change with time. It used to be immoral to commit adultery, to cheat on your taxes, to grab women by the pussy, to lie, to steal, to curse… slavery was moral at one time to Cons…

    Are you really advocating that the gov’t teach Christianity to citizens???

    Is adultery moral?
    Is slavery moral?
    Is hatred based on pigment or nationality moral?

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      what happened to Syria? Decide that wasnt getting any traction since your own side whichever side that actually might be is chanting, bomb, bomb, bomb….Bomb, Bomb Syria.

      Does someone get hurt when someone committs adultery?
      Does someone get hurt when you hold someone against their wills?
      Does someone get hurt when people hate white people for the color of their skin?

      Of course they do. That is the judgment of the world. It is immoral to cheat on your wife. The diffference today vs 40 years ago is that today it is up to the spouse and family to decide if the immorality exceeded the willingness of the others to bear. 40 years ago it was a stigma that society refused to condone. Same with Racism. The right is not racist. Their are people on the right who are racist. The left is every bit as racist as the right.

      Because you see Elwood TODAY, In America we have a ONE PARTY SYSTEM.

      WHY do you think nothing gets done no matter which party is in power?
      WhY do you think Obama failed to fulfill most of his campaign promises?
      Why do you think Trump is frantically being investigated for Impeachment?
      Why do you think powerful members of the Senate GOP are now going after Trump?

      Have you people on the left so buried your heads in WOKENESS that you have failed to realize that your allies are GIANT CORPORATIONS, BILLIONAIRES and the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX?

      THE USA IS NOW A ONE PARTY SYSTEM. The reason the left is lost is because they have no leaders to assure them everything will be okay. Same with the right. Other then Trump leading the rebellion against the one party system, What leaders have emerged on the RIGHT?

      NONE, ZERO, ZIP, NADA.

      AFTER 18 years of WAR…..point to a WAR LEADER who has emerged in the last decade. NONE and the one that did, cheated on his wife and slinked away, lucky he was not prosecuted into prison.

      WHO runs this country now? THE DAMN PEOPLE YOUR SIDE USED TO RAIL AGAINST. The FBI, CIA, NSA, NDI, DOJ and state department. Not elected officials representing US. They represent the Corporations and 3 letter agencies now.

      That is why I call it the shadow government. Join the resistance Elwood, instead of spousing Establishment talking points probably fed to you by a GOP/DEM hybrid laughing at you as you work like a little beaver while they get filthy rich off your misguided beliefs.

      Mortimer Snerd loves his straw men.

      If he has someone in mind who would regularly be immoral, commit adultery, to cheat on your taxes, to grab women by the pussy, to lie, to steal, to curse…, let him say so.

      I can think of a former US President who did so. From Arkinsaw. And another from Taxachusetts.

      If he can prove anyone else cheated on his taxes, grabbed women by the pussy, lied, to stole, cursed…, let’s see him prove it.

      And, sad to say, plenty of Democrats commit adultery.

      Are you really advocating that the gov’t teach Christianity to citizens???

      Is adultery moral?
      Is slavery moral?
      Is hatred based on pigment or nationality moral?

      Why not? We used to and the country was much better for it.

      As for what’s moral, talk’s cheap, but the Left comes up short when it comes to practice.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Goober,

        Yes, Donald John Trump. Adulterer, accused of rape, tax cheat, liar, stole and defrauded (remember Trump U?), used illegal immigrant labor, takes the name of your lord in vain…

        It’s unconstitutional for the gov’t to promote Christianity. But of course that doesn’t matter to far-right extremists interested in only establishing a white, fundamentalist Christian homeland. To you, the Constitution is an obstacle.

        As for what’s moral, talk’s cheap, but the Right (and especially their Great White Hope) come up short when it comes to practice.

  4. It’s expected that Democratic party activist groups will lie about everything and anything. Other democrats don’t believe them either, but accept it as a loyalty test. If you don’t agree with them, no matter what absurdity they say, you are expelled from the club.

    • Kye says:

      Which is why we can’t talk to you Fredo, because you have a broken moral code. You wouldn’t kill a Mohammedan because he has a son and every kid deserves a father in your book. Problem is this kids father is a terrorist and you’d rather he kill me and my family than make the kid an orphan. That is broken morality.

      Your morality is so broken you hate Donald Trump more than you love America but the fact is you NEVER loved America in the first place just like the rest of your comrades. That’s why you guys don’t even have flags at your debates. Unless Antifa brings some to burn, that is. In fact you and your party hate Donald Trump more than you love anything and are willing to destroy everything to get Trump. “Whatever it takes”, right?

      In reality you are a baizuo.

        PFC Pyle,

        This is why we can’t discuss anything with you. You’re a broken man. You are consumed with hate because so many Americans disagree with you, and will not bow to tRump. Why blame everyone else for tRump’s shortcomings? We told you so, but you voted for him anyway. You hated Clinton more than you loved America.

        What are you going on about Muslim terrorists? You’re more likely to be killed by a right-winger shooting up your church than a Muslim father. I’d me more than happy to kill a nut with an AR-15 in Walmart or your Pentecostal church whether he be Muslim or Methodist.

        So it’s “immoral” not to have US flags everywhere?

        We hate tRump BECAUSE we love America, while tRump and his tRumpBot followers such as you, hate America. Don’t you see how tRump is hurting America?

        Hate is your oxygen.

          Sounds like Mortimer is describing the Left. They’re the ones with their own SA busting heads because nobody is buying into their nonsense. And everyone has shortcomings, but we live in an imperfect universe, so we have to pick the best we can.

          You hated Clinton more than you loved America.

          He hated Clinton becuase he loved America.

          FIFY

          What are you going on about Muslim terrorists? You’re more likely to be killed by a right-winger shooting up your church than a Muslim father.

          According to whom? Some Lefty holdover from the Choom Gang? Abnd who do you think the Moslem crazies are? Actually, only a third are traceable to the Right.

          I’d me more than happy to kill a nut with an AR-15 in Walmart or your Pentecostal church whether he be Muslim or Methodist.

          If you had the guts to do it, but all you ever do is call anybody who disagrees with you a racist.

          So it’s “immoral” not to have US flags everywhere?

          No, but it shows whose side you’re on. If, in fact, you stand for American values and mores, why be afraid to fly the flag?

          Unless, of course, you hate it and the nation for which it stands.

          We hate tRump BECAUSE we love America, while tRump and his tRumpBot followers such as you, hate America. Don’t you see how tRump is hurting America?

          Hate is your oxygen.

          No, to be a good Lefty is to be a good hater. You have lists upon lists of people you hate.

          You love the totalitarian state and the America That Is Yet To Be, as the Hildabeast once put it. My question to you is what makes you think the Commies will keep you around once they’re in power. Then, you’ll be just another nigger.

          And the hurt I’ve seen done to America in the last 50 years is all on the Left side.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Goober,

            It’s always projection for “men” such as you.

            You want a white Christian homeland with a Great White Dictator and to rid America of Gomer’s “dirt people” (Muslims, brown immigrants, Blacks), LGBTs, non-Christians – the law is all that’s between your dream Amerika and America.

            All the right has is hate. And dishonesty.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Gomer,

        Have you ever been evaluated for PTSD? Up to 30% of Vietnam vets suffered from PTSD after returning, and 15% are still afflicted.

        It’s hardly surprising you side with Chinese communists in their hatred of Americans.

        When bullies and tyrants can’t get their way they go crazy as a shithouse rat. That’s you.

        • formwiz says:

          Mortimer, have you ever been diagnosed with paranoia, schizophrenia, antisocial personality disorder, avoidance, agoraphobia, narcissism, histrionics, OCD, homosexuality, manic episodes, schizotypism, anti social behavior, or psychosis?

          Most Lefties exhibit these symptoms and you definitely do.

          It’s hardly surprising you side with Chinese communists in their hatred of Americans.

          He uses a Chinese word and that makes him a Commie?

          I forgot to add delusional to the list.

          When bullies and tyrants can’t get their way they go crazy as a shithouse rat. That’s you.

          The bullies and tyrants are all on your side, so it’s you.

          And an apt description.

    It’s not morals? If poverty begets crime why wasn’t the Depression generation all gunslingers and hardened criminals?

    • Professor Hale says:

      It’s a matter of perspective. According to people who weren’t there, the Great Depression was terrible. But in truth, at it’s worth, only 25% were unemployed. So, 75% of the workforce was still working. People were still buying luxury goods, taking vacations, paying taxes, building new businesses. People at the time didn’t know they were in the Depression. Economists didn’t have a word for it until much later. It’s worth noting that at that time, most of the homes in america did not have indoor plumbing, electricity, or a paved street out front. None of that was due to the depression.
