The wrong target
Shannon Watts, creator of Moms for Gun Sense in America, an anti-gun propagandist organization financed by billionaire Michael Bloomberg, has partnered with Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Everytown for Gun Safety, and once again they targeted the gun, but not the psychopath, who murdered two and wounded nine with his legally purchased handgun during a video tournament at the “Gun Free” Jacksonville Landing Mall in Florida.
Moms deceitfully suppress the fact 97.8 percent of all mass shootings occur in gun free zones, and armed citizens intervention reduces gun deaths to 2.3 victims, compared to police response minutes later which resulted in 14.3 fatalities.
Moms purposely minimize the fact criminals fear armed citizens more than the police because they are killed about three times more often, and citizens error rate of accidentally shooting someone other than the shooter was 2 percent, compared to 11 percent by the police who must immediately and accurately upon arrival identify the offender from the victim, armed citizens, or bystanders.
Moms intentionally disregard the fact murders were reduced by 8.5 percent, rapes 5 percent, aggravated assaults 7 percent, and robberies 3 percent, after constitutional carry was enacted in 14 states.
Moms sensationally dramatize the 38,000 firearm deaths in 2016, but dismiss the facts 63 percent or 24,000 were suicides, 13,000 were homicides, and of those 85 percent or 11,000 were gang related, leaving 2,000 non-gang murders, and 1,000 justifiable and accidental deaths.
Moms erroneously discount the 1,604 people murdered by knives, compared to 374 killed by all types of rifles, including the millions of semi-automatic rifles they want banned and confiscated.
Moms publicly campaigning to save lives should be demonstrating against the 60 million unborn babies murdered under Roe vs. Wade from 1973 to 2017.
That carnage resulted in 1.5 million unborn fetuses being discarded yearly by pregnant Moms who believed they, not the Creator, had the power to decide whom would or would not enjoy the inalienable right to life, a decision their Moms unselfishly rejected.
Finally, Moms should be rallying for a border wall to prevent Mexican Cartels from smuggling criminals, murders, and especially illegal drugs into America which has caused the death of 72,300 people in 2017 from drug overdoses.
Columnist Larry Elder was right on in 2000 when he compared Moms marching for additional gun control legislation, “to chickens rooting for Colonel Sanders.
