Skip to comments.The NRA Nightmare: America’s Moms (Cue spooky music)
Posted on 04/24/2014 9:55:46 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Can a group of passionate mothers defeat the nations largest pro-gun institution and persuade elected officials to enact laws that will reduce gun violence and save lives? Its too early to tell, but this weekend the two groups will come face to face outside the NRAs annual convention.
On one side of this version of the classic David versus Goliath battle, we have Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense. This small, but passionate group is led by Shannon Watts, a 43-year-old mother of five who started the organization via a simple Facebook page after the horrific shooting at the Sandy Hook elementary school in 2012.
On the other side, we have the National Rifle Associationan organization with an annual operating budget of approximately $250 million, 4 million-plus members, and a legion of federal and state elected officials in their corner.
This weekend, the battle will commence when the Moms and their allies demonstrate outside the NRA Convention in Indianapolis. Watts explained that this protest will feature Moms, gun violence survivors, domestic violence prevention advocates, faith leaders, gun owners and other gun safety advocates speaking out for sensible reforms to end the gun violence the kills 86 Americans every day.(continued)

One third of the moms I know have concealed carry permits. Another third are interested. Half of the remainder are very elderly. This is more astroturf.
So there will be about two dozen frumpy women who haven’t gotten laid anytime in recent memory standing around with signs as thousands attend the NRA convention. Does that sound about right?
I took my 2nd required 4 hour course to get my Illinois CCW permit this evening. 10 men and 4 smoking hot chicks were there, including 2 very attractive soccer mom types. These whining wastes of estrogen don’t have a chance.
Liberals think its better to get mugged than to shoot the bad guy dead.
I’d rather the bad guy face the music - once.
Considering that probably there will be a small amount of gun violence at the NRA convention, maybe these moms should try out their “sensible reforms to ... end gun violence” at a more appropriate testing ground like, say, Chicago.
More important, we have the Bill of Rights in our corner. Americans aren't about to let this ditzy bunch of idiots take away our freedom.
I don’t want politicians, cops or moms deciding whether I should I live or die.
They can pry my gun from cold, dead hand.
‘So there will be about two dozen frumpy women who haven’t gotten laid anytime in recent memory...’ LOL. I am doing my part to bring these women back from the dark side but I can’t do it all by myself, Laz needs to step up his game and help.
Yawn. I remember the same tactics and peacocking 15 years ago by the media/Clinton gang front group called the “Million Mom March”. Heard from them lately?
And what will they want? To make guns illegal.
And why will they want that? Because if guns are illegal, criminals won't use guns.
Bias and pre-conceived notions, anyone? Is this an article or opinion piece, or do the media even care anymore?
Why do they think pro-gun people don't want to see violence reduced and/or lives saved?
The Local NBC Station has been playing up the “Scary Armed nutjobs” that are going to be downtown this weekend.
I’m SURE they will play up the demonstrators, and play down all the law-abiding carriers.
“So there will be about two dozen frumpy women who havent gotten laid anytime in recent memory standing around with signs as thousands attend the NRA convention. Does that sound about right?”
Pretty much. Let them protest as the convention needs to laugh at someone and they’re it..
You spelled "muthas" wrong. At least assume Bloomturd is one of them.
Don't know about that. Nobody seems too concerned about the freedoms stolen by the First Moslem in the White Hut.
Million Mom March, Part Deux.
Sounds like another OFA front group.

Has the courageous mom spoke to the gross negligence of the state, psychiatrist/psychologist, and sperm donor concerning Lanza’s mental condition?
I have this to say. In nature, the female of the species is at her most dangerous when her children are threatened. She will fight with the last fibre of her being in order to secure the opportunity for her offspring to reach adulthood.
So this brings to mind a few questions.
First, what mother would not want to enhance her capability to defend and protect her offspring? Even a black belt will only go so far. Why don't YOU have a gun? Don't you want to be able to fulfill that role nature has bestowed upon you?
Second, do you support abortion on demand?
I know the issues seem unrelated, but you really can't ballyhoo about child safety and support slaughtering them in the womb, now can you?
It's a big corner.
Didn’t we already fight this battle with alcohol?
To be clear, these idiots aren’t fighting to defeat the NRA, they are fighting to defeat a basic human right.
My wife is a Mom and a “Nana”. She carries because she wants to be in a position to defend herself and those she loves if the need ever arises. She could teach these “Moms” a thing or two.
They can campaign all they want against the NRA, but that isn’t going to change anyone’s mind about gun rights. The NRA has, what, 5 million members? But 50 million Americans identify with the NRA.
1. Don’t laugh; 9 highly motivated women were basically responsible for getting Prohibition passed. Against the opinion of most Americans.
2. The article acts as though these women have the NRA, solely, against them. Alinsky tactic. These women have the God-given Second Amendment against them and an ever-increasing number of firearm owners.
I piss on them and their willfull ignorance of the human right to self defense. They are the root of all evil in the world.
I’d like to give Mrs. Watts a few syllables on the subject. I’ll see her emotion against my logic any day of the week.
(Can a group of passionate mothers defeat the nations largest pro-gun institution and persuade elected officials to enact laws that will reduce gun violence and save lives?)
No. Because they are not interested in passing laws to stop VIOLENCE. The only are interested in passing more gun laws that never have and will stop violence.
In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, Preside nt of the United States.
In 1963 a radical left wing communist, Lee Harvey Oswald, shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.
In 1975 a two wing radical Democrats fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States in separate acts of mental illness.
In 1981 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan.
In 1984 James Huberty a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.
In 1986 Patrick Sherril a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.
In 1990 James Pough a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.
In 1991 George Hennard a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 23 people in a Lubys cafeteria.
In 1995 James Daniel Simpson a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.
In 1999 Larry Asbrook a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 8 people at a church service.
In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.
In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung - Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech .
March 2010: John Patrick Bedell shot two Pentagon security. A right-wing extremist, media asked? (A registered Democrat and 9/11 Truther.)
In 2011 a mentally ill, registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The pot smoking Loughner killed 6 and wounded 18 in another liberal shooting tragedy.
In 2011 another mentally ill and registered Democrat named James Holmes went into a Colorado movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.
In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.
On September 16 2013, Aaron Alexis another pyscho Democrat killer slaughtered 12 innocents at the US Navy Yard. Alexis before his slaughter of innocents Navy Yard gunman Aaron Alexis had complained his brain had been targeted by low-frequency waves weeks before the slaughter.
12/14/2013 Karl Pierson entered Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Co. armed with a shotgun with intent to kill one of his teachers. He shot Claire Davis, a senior, @Arapahoe High in the head. Yes, Pierson is/was another mentally ill liberal punk.
April 2014 Mohammed Whitaker arraigned on 18 felony charges in series of highway shootings in Kansas. Mohammed appears to be another SOB, aka Son Of Obama..
We could go on, but you get the point, even if the media and the anti gun pyschos in Congress do not.
Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats, AKA, the mentally ill having guns or being around them.
No NRA members, No Tea Party members, or No Republican conservatives are/were involved.
Political correctness and leftist policies are to blame in these mass shootings:
If Seung-Hui Cho had been institutionalized for mental illness, 32 people would still be alive at Virginia Tech.
If Jared Loughner had been institutionalized, 6 would be alive in Tucson.
If James Holmes had been institutionalized, 12 lives spared in Aurora, CO.
If Adam Lanza had been institutionalized, 26 would still live in Newtown, CT.
If Nidal Hasan had been properly reported, investigated, and discharged from the Army, and institutionalized, 13 would not have died at Ft. Hood.
If we really want to improve safety, keep criminals in jail, terrorists out of the U.S., and people who are mentally ill/deranged in institutions.
Again, It should be illegal for any Democrats to own guns or be around them.

Didn’t know that.
