“Moms Demand Action” – We Ban Other Things to Protect Kids, So We Should Ban Guns
The anti gun group “Moms Demand Action” has released a new ad campaign that basically says, since we ban other things, we should ban semi automatic firearms and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
According to their website:
Moms Demand Action is unaffiliated with any other organization or political party. We were independently founded on Dec. 14, 2012.
Moms Demand Action was founded to demand action NOW to:
1) Ban assault weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
2) Require background checks for all gun and ammunition purchases.
3) Report the sale of large quantities of ammunition to the ATF, and ban online sales of ammunition.
4) Make gun trafficking a federal crime with serious criminal penalties.
5) Counter gun industry lobbyists’ efforts to weaken gun laws at the state level.
First off, we find it a little offensive that you were literally founded the day of the Newtown shooting. While the rest of the country was in mourning these ladies were already busy preparing to politicize the deaths of children.
Based on their goals it looks like they want to bring about extremely draconian gun laws.
Anyway, they released the following ads with the following quotes on their website.
We keep ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ out of schools because of the bottle of wine in her basket. Why not assault weapons?
We ban the game dodgeball because it’s viewed as being too violent. Why not assault weapons?
Personally, I think they’re going about this in a way that totally misses the point.
True freedom loving gun owners are fighting against government control in the lives of American citizens. I don’t think you’ll meet any true patriot who thinks that the game of dodge ball or the children’s story Little Red Riding Hood should be banned by the federal government.
Is Mom’s Demand Action implying they think the government should run our lives on such a large scale as to ban games and books at a federal level?
