Organizing for Action, a non-profit liberal activism group that spun out of the president’s election campaigns isn’t wasting anytime on calling for more gun control.

According to an article on The Blaze, the following email was sent out by the organization to its mailing list.

“After tragedies like this, now is the time for people like you and me to renew our call for action,” Jon Carson, executive director of Organizing for Action, the advocacy group that grew out of Obama’s presidential campaigns, said in an email to supporters. “Add your name right now to tell Congress you’re not backing down in the fight to prevent gun violence.”

“It’s almost unbelievable: More than 8,259 Americans have died due to gun violence since Newtown,” Carson wrote. “As President Obama said, these events are too common. We all stand numb, trying to wrap our minds around another tragedy that breaks our hearts.”

“Since the Senate vote failed this spring, OFA supporters have refused to back down — within weeks, we delivered a petition with more than 1.4 million names to leaders in Congress,” Carson wrote. “Just last month, volunteers held hundreds of events across the country, reminding their lawmakers that we’re not going away.”

The first line, “After tragedies like this” is straight out of the Democrats playbook for pushing gun control.

That’s a literal playbook by the way.

The Second Amendment Foundation has secured a leaked document which we are dubbing, “The Democrat’s Gun Control Playbook.”

The 70+ page document (click to download) has instructions on how anti-gun groups and politicians can divide pro-gun supporters, fight the NRA, and even how to capitalize on national shooting tragedies in order to further an agenda of more gun control.

According to the document,

The document states that “The most powerful time to communicate is when concern and emotions are running at their peak … The debate over gun violence in America is periodically punctuated by high-profile gun violence incidents including Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson, the Trayvon Martin killing, Aurora and Oak Creek. When an incident such as these attracts sustained media attention, it creates a unique climate for our communications efforts.”

So what we’re seeing from OFA is literally a play straight out of the gun control playbook.
