Small Group Of Gun Prohibitionists Booted from Staples HQ [Framingham, MA]
BearingArms ^ | March 5, 2014 | Bob Owens

Shannon Watts

Democrat PR consultant turned gun prohibitionist Shannon Watts probably didn’t see this coming:

Members of the Massachusetts chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America tried deliver a petition with more than 12,000 signatures at Staples headquarters in Framingham on Tuesday morning to Staples’ CEO but were asked to leave the property.

How embarrassing for Moms Demand Action. This is just the latest in a string of failed attempts to push their prohibitionist views on the successful office supply chain.

If the photos accompanying the article are accurate, the citizen disarmament cult managed to get just seven or so ignorant cultists to show for their triumphant assault meager showing on corporate headquarters.

I’d be curious to know how many of these attendees are paid employees of Moms Demand Action, versus volunteers. There are assertions that a similar Moms Demand protest in North Carolina at another Staples location was only attended by paid employees. If the only way to get people to agree to show up at your protests is to pay them a salary, you might have a problem.

Moms Demand is part of Michael Bloomberg’s citizen control “empire,” along with the faltering Mayors Against Guns.

That’s good. Staples is the first place I go when I need a new gun.

Another reason why some men ditch their wives and get cats. Cats are smarter and more loyal than leftist women who just want to screw up society, and your right to self-defense.

So, exactly what do these “Moms” plan on doing when some creepy cat burglar is in their living room at 3AM? And what does Staples have to do with firearms, anyhow?

I didn’t read much of the article, but I’m guessing it involves an incident from about a year ago that involved... hmm... sponsorship? I forgot.

I went back and reread the article. I couldn’t find the reason the women were going to Staples. It’s probably very clear why, but I couldn’t find it.

Took your heretical advice and read the article. Still don’t see what staples has to do with guns.

Yeah, that look says "gullible, room temperature IQ" ...

Like others here, I have no idea what their issue is with Staples. But I've gotta say, since Staples stood up to them they are #1 on my list the next time I need office supplies.

Sorry about that—it was in the link just below the picture.


Last August, a female customer inside a North Carolina Staples “negligently fired her gun,” said Krantz.

“It is sheer luck that no one other than the gun owner was injured. But what about next time? It’s time for Staples to put the safety of its customers first and keep guns out of its stores,” said Krantz.

No! These are intelligent people. They've read the FBI uniform crime stats. They KNOW that restricting law abiding people's right to protect themselves will actually increase crime.

Increased crime of course demands a more authoritarian police state.

Their activities have NOTHING to do with any effort to "reduce crime".

This is about control. Control of you.

Have no idea. If so, they probably considered “Several Mom March” as they were trying to come up with alternatives to MMM.

Staples is worthless for ammo. Never any in stock when I visit.
