If you haven’t already heard, Moms Demand Action (a Michael Bloomberg financed anti-gun group) is targeting the department store Target after it was revealed that an open carry demonstration was held at a Texas Target earlier this year.
The group wants Target to come out against guns in their stores. Currently Target stores follow the local laws where they are located.
While over 200,000 people have signed an online petition asking Target to change their policy, when it comes to getting people to actually get up from their computer desks, it would seem the Moms are a little lacking.
According to the Dallas News only 12 people showed up to a recent “Stroller Jam” protest outside of a Target store in Texas. According to that article,
The dozen women held signs that said things like “Texas moms expect more,” a play off of the company’s slogan, “Expect more. Pay less.”
“We’re asking them, like we did successfully with Starbucks and Chipotle, to put a national policy into place that covers states like Texas where open carry of guns is allowed,” said Stephanie Lundy, Texas spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action.
The only woman with a stroller, Toni Gallego, showed up with her granddaughter, Lily.
This is why anti-gun activists generally can’t win. Pro-gun activist regularly show up at political rallies/demonstrations, regularly open our wallets, and always make it to the polls on election day. These “moms” generally can’t do much more than sign an online petition or make some hateful comments on Facebook.
