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.
>> the Sandy Hook elementary
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.
