Skip to comments.Local Moms Demand Action against guns (NH)
Posted on 11/22/2013 8:07:36 AM PST by Aglooka
PORTSMOUTH Janet Groat is so passionate about gun sense she said she could spend the whole day talking about it.
The Portsmouth woman recently started a state chapter of Moms Demand Action, a national organization that started Dec. 15, 2012, a day after 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children and six adult staff members in a mass murder at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
Their mission is to create a culture where laws and business policies reflect common sense and are not just the result of political posturing, Groat said.
Nationally, eight children die from gun violence every day, according to Groat.
My son is shocked that there are many states where you can be blind and still own a firearm, Groat said. Children aren't thinking about constitutional ideology. They are thinking about what makes sense.

” passionate about gun sense”
My Constitution trumps this ******* mouth.
How come they never start a group calling for criminals to be disarmed, just law-abiding people?
2nd Amendment bump for later.......
Her son is a liberal raised moron, just like his mother. The kid will probably grow up to be a fag or a democrat senator.
Why doesn’t she start a local chapter of “lock up all the kooks?” It would be much more effective to institutionalize all the crazy people then trying to dis-arm law abiding citizens and rape the constitution.
How come women can’t stay in the kitchen. :-)
I think Janet needs to be introduced to the Knock-out game. It is easy to think you are safe, until you are not.
I mean, seriously? You would deprive a blind person of the means to protect themselves?
If someone jumps a blind person I would think they'd be the first you'd want to have a sidearm to jam in the attackers body and pull the trigger... several times.
I refuse to be baited.
Wouldn’t be prudent.
First time I've heard the term applied the way this airhead and author want it. But it doesn't surprise me, and I bet it will become widespread used by all the anti-2nd Amendment people
Gun sense? NONSENSE.
It is airhead mothers like these that have helped produce a society of defective people who go out and do evil and /or stupid things with what is just a tool.
Janet Groat - another leftist who has found meaning to her life with her new soapbox. She no doubt is relishing all the attention she never had and can finally affirm to herself everyday that, yes indeed, she must be a good person because of what she is doing.
WTF is “gun sense”?
My thought is that all these orgs are funded and run by the same people.
Frankly, I do not believe this woman’s number of 8 children per day. If she were so confident of it, she would be saying their names one by one. It would take 30 seconds.
The reason the gun-control people never confront the law-breakers, is that the criminals are probably carrying guns, and would shoot them when the conversation got too heated or accusatory.
Legislators, on the other hand, are rarely armed, and are always trying to keep up the PR so they may be re-elected.
The rest of us, those who have gone through all the hoops and training in order to be a responsible and legal possessor of firearms, and those who agree with the right to keep and bear arms, are left to seethe on the sidelines, rarely consulted unless we, too, confront the legislators.
And nationally, over 3,000 children are deliberately killed every day in "medical procedures" conducted by "doctors".
Having your finger on the trigger when you try to fire off a shot.
I hope the Muscular Dystrophy Association sues them for acronym infringement...
Aren’t those the same? /s
Is he also shocked that there are many states where you can own a firearm at night with the lights out?
Another “grass roots” organization with union made, pre-printed signs?
After all, we have a Democrat pResident who is a homosexual, even though he tries to hide it.
In a few more years, homosexuality will be a resume enhancer for democrats nation wide, not just in California and Massachusetts.
The Constitution also provides the means of changing and amending it. Though like the uneducated idiots that make up the majority today in what was once America, they know they can just steal what they want.
Who do you think she’s call if a bad man with a gun comes after her?
Answer: A good man with a gun.
That was a joke. Coming from a father of two smart girls who are capable of anything.
Truth is I really think a lot of these misguided people mean well. They are just ignorant of the consequences should their wish for disarmament come true.
Does the lovely Ms. Groat support abortion? (bet she does) How many children die every day from that caring and compassionate procedure?
I thought the term “children” included all those trayvons out there who get killed in drug deals, drive bys and shoot outs with cops.
Chi-town 3 @ day, Philly 2 @ day, LA 2 @ day, etc, etc, etc
Most in age bracket 16-20, the Shooter, more than likely a brotha!
So, what’s their position on abortion as birth control?
Well, you’re right in a sense when they want to inflate the numbers, but under that definition her number would be much much higher. 8 children....8 out of 330 million. If it is by accidental gun related death, then she should be able to name them individually. I think they just pulled it out of their ass myself, and they weren’t thinking about the statistical significance of it (2.4242 X 10^-8 %)
“Who do you think shes call if a bad man with a gun comes after her?”
Probably the local anger management & conflict resolution hotline.
That pretty much covers the ENTIRE Senate.
If you have a different definition of "children" the linked table has data which will help to determine the number of children (by your definition) who were murdered.
They count teenage gang-bangers as "children". In 2010, we had a total of 1277 homicide victims under 18, from all causes. Source: Homicide victims by age, race, and sex. 60% of homicide victims 13 to 16 are black, and 65% of homicide victims 17 to 19 are black, and most of the victims are likely in gangs.
I agree. However I was only commenting that her numbers show nothing of statistical significance, even at the 8 per day.
Even on a yearly basis the % of population is .19X10^-6%. That is meaningless. More children, even by her definition, succumb to other ills (e.g., cancer) than that.
Even then, I doubt the numbers, too.
I wonder how many of these moms would simultaneously fight tooth and nail for the ‘right’ for a woman to poison, dismember, and ultimately murder her own child.
I bet quite a few.
I agree. They make up the data they need to use.
Brilliant! Let's let children run the country.
How about we start out with a little trial run...let's have your kid run your household.
I think there are two kinds of gun-control advocates. One are the useful idiots, who don't really know the facts of the issue, and the others (usually politicians) are power-mad tyrants with genocide in mind (Obama, Feinstein, Schumer, etc.).
Well ... you said you didn’t believe it.
In fact, you were right not to believe it. Her definition of “children” goes up to age 22, and therefore includes people legally able to join the military, drive a car, marry without permission, purchase firearms and ammunition, sign contracts, purchase and consume alcoholic beverages ...
IOW, she’s calling adults “children” in order to make a political point.
How come women can say things on this level of stupidity, and not be humiliated by it?
Wholly agree with that.
