Yesterday, Hoosiers Concerned About Gun Violence held a rally that drew a full 25 protesters. They read names of people killed by guns. A grandmother spoke about the murder of her grandson, making sure to convey that her black grandson was killed by a 55-year-old white man. Race makes the argument more powerful, right? “It was clear that she was not talking about “sensible” gun reform,” says WIBC’s Tony Katz, who was in attendance. “She was there to have a conversation about race. It was odd, unfortunate and unnecessary. It completely undercut any ‘legitimate’ conversation they were having at the rally.”

Katz went on to address another speaker, Dr. Steve Posner, who said that the NRA is funded by gun manufacturers, so they can’t be objective. The assertion is odd, he says, since “Everytown got $50 million from Bloomberg, and he wants to grab the guns as well. When its their money, its grass roots. When its someone else’s money, it’s obscene and wrong and evil and destroying America.” Meanwhile, Everytown For Gun Safety dropped a report entitled “Not your grandparents’ NRA,” that portrays the NRA as a radicalized, murderous group, as opposed to the small gun club it was in its inception.

Let us say there are many fools who think they can win the political hunger game, minding their own minds and not God.

And then there are like Bloomberg who like to throw money at an ego scam of their own, thinking they can manage chaos... yes.. you got that right...

Bloomberg thinks he can manage chaos...

My, the communists must love this fool parting with his money. They did not even need to con him, he conned himself by his own ego.

It appears as though the Hoosiers weren’t too impressed by the “Moms” For the Abolition of Freedom clowns.

Gun grabbers need to realize that even Liberals like their guns here in America. This is a lesson Clinton learned real quick.

Say, her grandson didn’t happen to be robbing that 55 year old white man, was he?

The only mention of the NRA convention on local Indy tv news websites was about the protests, with comments from NRA members at the end of the articles
